Nonlocality detection in multipartite quantum systems is of great interest. The most popular tool to detect nonlocality in quantum systems are Bell inequalities. Most of the provided constructions of multipartite Bell inequalities involve correlations between all parties which quickly becomes computationally intractable and hard to test experimentally in many-body quantum systems. Recently, J. Tura and collaborators have shown in [Science 344.6189 (2014): 1256-1258] that detection of nonlocality in multipartite systems is possible with Bell inequalities involving only one- and two- body correlation functions. However, it is uncertain how efficient these new inequalities are. One of the objectives of the present work is to address this question by numerical means. The other objective is to show that these inequalities can also serve as as device independent witnesses of different forms of entanglement such as genuine multipartite entanglement.
