What do you want to measure?

Occupancy sensors are an efficient way to analyse how buildings and office spaces are utilised. Compared to manual surveys that are cost and resource efficient and reduces human errors. Using data gives stakeholders greater visibility to make decisions on what changes can be made to optimise work practices, inform future designs and ultimately boost employee productivity to make sustainability a reality.

Where to start?

Define clear goals and identify metrics you want to measure in order to understand what type(s) of occupancy sensors are right for your projects.
Do you need data to inform decisions on:
  • How to manage work rotations?
  • How to keep within social distancing occupancy limits?
  • Coordinate cleaning teams efficiently?
  • Usage behaviour of workspaces and assets?
  • Busy and low periods of utilisation in the office?
  • How much space you really need?

Manage work rotations

As employees return on a rotation basis it's important to understand the number of people in the office at any given time, in order to stay within social distancing limits.
Passive infrared sensors (PIR) gather individual utilisation to occupancy data from desk, focus rooms, phone booths or meeting rooms.
  • How it captures data - Triggered by both motion, heat and the amount of time the space has been occupied
  • Anonymous data - No personal or health information of an individual is captured. GDPR compliant
  • Immediate granular data gathered on whether someone is present at a workspace for more than 10 minutes
  • Placement - Discretely placed under desks and not disruptive to employees

Understand the footfall of free flowing areas

Keeping to social distancing limits and ensuring specific areas of the office are not over capacity, counter sensors gather usage data in meeting rooms, open spaces or collaboration areas.
  • How it captures data - Triggered by object recognition to provide insights on how often workspaces are used and by how many people
  • Immediate insights on number of people going in any direction
  • Accuracy is measured by the field of focus and covers a wide area
  • Placement - Discretely placed above doors or ceiling so they are not disruptive to employees

Minimise the transmission of viruses

Research has indicated the link between poor air quality and the transmission of viruses. Keeping an eye on office indoor air quality is becoming highly critical as employees return to the office.
  • What data is capturedTemperature, CO2, Humidity and Noise levels
  • Anonymous data - No personal or health information of an individual is captured. GDPR compliant
  • Monitor the health of buildings and air quality throughout the day to ensure fresh air is circulated efficiently
  • Placement - Discretely placed on ceilings or on the wall
