Here are 5 key deployment checklist you need to know when implementing occupancy sensors to measure workspace utilisation.
We have acquired extensive knowledge in planning, conducting and managing real world sensor network deployments.
These best practice tips will help you minimise site and maintenance risks as well as network connectivity during deployment. Sensor technology is only half the equation, having a robust data analytics platform will help you interpret the data into tangible tactics.
Our experience of working with large FTSE companies to medium and small businesses deploying sensors across multiple sites, has allowed us to build best practice deployment approaches to manage the following risks:
Site specific risks - Gateway and sensor placement for signal quality and established connection to cloud
Prepare risk – Staging to verify design
Maintenance risk – Detecting sensors that are not transmitting data
Network connectivity - From gateway to cloud during deployment – setting up staging, maintenance – keeping the data flowing
Scoping process – Identify and ensure impact on key KPIs
1. Site specific checklist
Gather CAD drawing or floor plan
Plan gateway placement
Identify any mounting and placement issues
Test building corners for signal quality
Confirm gateway locations and pre-installation requirements with onsite contacts
2. Staging checklist
Order sensors and gateways
Plan deployment rollout: floor by floor
Plan for safe storage
Plan and implement staging to pre-configuring gateways and sensors
Assemble Project Kit with all hardware (such as adhesives, screws and mounts)
Connect gateways and test connectivity using some sensors
Test remote access to the gateway
Mount gateways into position and document
Test end-to-end network connectivity with a few sensors
Deploy sensors according to the rollout plan
Prepare handover documentation with asset register
