PeopleCounter Desk Sensor
AsureSpace’s PeopleCounter Desk Sensor is designed to assist organizations analyze how individual workspaces are being used and uncover potential inefficiencies and cost-saving opportunities.
Using Passive Infrared (PIR) technology, each wireless desk sensor unit is placed under a desk and sends the utilization data of a workspace to a data-collection system. This data is then processed in PeopleCounter’s business intelligence database and presented in intuitive, interactive data visualization dashboards, which is then used to help answer vital workspace utilization questions such as:
- Was the workspace actually used?
- How long was it used?
- What is the maximum number of workspaces in use at any given time?
- What is the average number of desks being used daily, weekly, monthly, etc.
This type of insight into actual space utilization can lead to potential opportunities to reduce or eliminate underutilized workspace, repurpose space to better align with changing work styles, and measure the performance of telework programs – all leading to substantial real estate savings and a strong ROI.
- Passively captures desk occupancy data and metrics
- PIR sensor and transmitter are contained in a single unit
- Desk Sensors are powered by an internal battery. No cables or power supplies are needed
- Sensors provide a “heartbeat” signal if no occupancy is detected. No need to question if a sensor is broken or out of range.
- Desk sensors need to be located within 50 feet of a receiver
- The desk sensor transmits occupancy data every four minutes
- Easy mounting and flexibility.
- Comprehensive analytics with intuitive, interactive data analysis visualizations
- Provides actionable data to address real estate and other operational inefficiencies
- Intuitive administrative functionality
Powerful Innovation Leading to Powerful Insight
The PeopleCounter Desk Sensor is a compact motion detector which features a white light filter, automatic temperature compensation, and exceptionally effective RFI immunity, all working together to virtually eliminate false activation.
The desk sensors do not contain cameras—they simply capture movement. They are integrated and designed to capture utilization data for almost any function and location in today’s offices—from workstations and meeting rooms to collaborative work areas.
Each desk sensor contains a transmitter board that communicates occupancy data to a PoE powered receiver using a proprietary 315 MHz signal. Sensors need to be positioned within 50 feet of one or more receivers.
If for some reason a desk sensor is removed, or accidentally repositioned, returning the desk sensor to its original location is all that is needed to continue passive data capture.
