What type of equipment...

What type of equipment would I need to accomplish the following senerio: A transmitter place on one person, a receiver placed on another. When either person is seperated by a predetermined distance (say 30 feet) an audible (alarm) goes off on the receiver.

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your speaker or sound system?

The receiver

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your sound system?

I have not tried any. Just staring the project

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Theater Expert to know before I connect you?

No, that would be it thank you

Something like this perhaps?:

https://www.amazon.com/InSite-LBL809-Anti-Loss-Bluetooth-Proximity/dp/B00CGRMWC4

which requires a Bluetooth link with a smartphone carried on your person... a certain separation distance and an alarm sounds on the smartphone.

I'm not sure it can be set to 30 feet - it may be rather a closer distance, or a bit farther... but would this be the sort of thing you are looking for?

(Reply, let me know, and I will do further work as needed.)

OK, thanks Russell. Do you understand my question?
***** *****

Yes. I think so. Is the 'receiver' in your question being a smartphone OK? or do you not want a smartphone-with-app and a device, sort of arrangement?

I'm sorry to hear it. Give me some time to do further searching...

There is the HipKey device, which is proximity triggered, in Alarm Mode, when a distance between smartphone and HipKey is reached - up to 50 meters (164 feet.)

Basically what you want seems to be a 'separation alarm' crossed with a Proximity Alarm, or some such device.

If the distance is not adjustable, do you have a distance range in mind that would be acceptable?

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
somewhere between 30-50 feet.

I'm sorry to say I'm not finding anything with an adjustable range.

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I understand. Is there one that does not have an adjustable range?

I think the HipKey would be your best bet for the purpose. Its range is 'up to 164 feet', but is probably triggered at lesser ranges. And it might be adjustable as to range, but they just don't mention that feature- ?
