Meet the next generation of occupancy sensors
July 17, 2017
THE SIMPLEST, MOST AFFORDABLE, AND COMPREHENSIVE PACKAGE YET.
We decided that we’ve been sitting on this little secret of ours long enough. We are proud to introduce to the world our proprietary sensor! Thought our system architecture was simple before? We just upped the ante – unlike traditional systems that require multiple types of costly sensors, we’ve built an affordable package that is capable of every occupancy sensing function you need.

HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!
Well, we can let you in on a bit of the magic. Our brilliant electrical engineer discovered a new sensor that has yet to be utilized in our field and immediately went to work. He found that not only is it able to track occupancy, but it can track the direction of traffic.
Thought your traditional sensors could do the job just fine? While they are able to detect movement, this application is actually very limited. Since it only detects movement it is unable to tell whether a person has actually entered or left a room, only that someone had entered its line of sight. Also, since they are passive, they are only active when someone is in motion. If someone is sitting still in a room, these passive sensors would not register movement and go into a “sleep mode” which results in incorrect occupancy data, leading to what are now unnecessary errors in analytics and frustrations among team members when seeking an unoccupied space.
Our new sensors are always active meaning they’ll never skip a beat in getting the data you need. We’ve leveraged the directional sensing to double as a people counter. By strategically placing them above entranceways, the sensor is able to detect when someone is moving into or out of the space and keeps track of the number of people still in the space. When there are multiple entrances, the sensors work in tandem with each other on the backend to ensure real-time accuracy. This capability also works with open office floor plans. Simply designate the boundaries of what you will consider to be the space and we can strategically place sensors to work in tandem to specifically cover the area.
As an added bonus, we’ve added integrated lighting control to our proprietary sensors as well! Your Facility Management Team still has control over timing and how they want it to operate such as some lights remaining on for the duration of the day, lights turning on 10 minutes before a meeting or turning off 10 minutes after, etc. Adding the integrated lighting control simply means that you no longer need to have a third party lighting control system, which is one less thing you need to check off your list. You’re welcome.
