WIFI handheld devides get lost will bluetooth tracker interfere with WIFI connectivity

Hello EE, We have Honeywell handhelds and we've set them down in the warehouse and lost them.
I'm looking at the following: https://www.thetileapp.com/store/tiles/mate?defaultproduct=mate-1-pack&utm_campaign=702894687&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_content=213401926926&utm_term=-&adgroup=47867352387&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI_JjI3JLs2AIVkhuBCh3SqgB7EAYYASABEgLEnvD_BwE

but concerned if the Bluetooth will interfere with the handhelds ability to connect to WIFI if they are fixed to the handheld.
Anyone use these and can speak to it?

Hi operationsIT,

We have not used them but they look sleek!

You don't have to worry about interference WiFi & Bluetooth wireless technologies have been implemented side-by-side in devices for several years, and have also been working on improving co-existence between such enabled devices. The Tile utilizes Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) radio, which both WiFi & Bluetooth technologies utilize the same 2.4 GHz frequency band but Bluetooth was optimized with a feature called AFH (Adaptive Frequency Hopping) to eliminate interference that transmits data over 40 channels. AFH provides the robustness needed to operate in a crowded radio environment. Furthermore, Bluetooth technology's ability to detect & avoid in-band interference gives it a strong advantage over other short-range wireless technologies that lack this capability.

 Think about laptops, smartphone, tablets, etc all have both WiFi & Bluetooth in them and what kind of major issues there would be if they did interfere with each other.

Something else to keep in mind...because they reside on the unlicensed 2.4GHz band all things that do cause interference with WiFi can cause similar affects to Bluetooth such as:
• building materials (metal, concrete, plaster, stone, water, glass, etc.),
• microwaves,
• cordless phones,
• other wireless devices (speakers, cameras & other devices),
• DSS (Direct Satellite Service),
• Power sources,
• etc.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
