Sensor monitoring solutions for effective and efficient environments

The core of our innovative technology provides a low power RF network (iLan) to provide the infrastructure of our communications, that will run in real-time without any impact, on your existing IT infrastructure, this enables us to provide real-time data 24/7, 365 days per year, via RF transmitters using AAA batteries, low power microprocessor units to measure how your people, utilize their building environments to maximize and sweat your facility assets, across your global portfolio.

The built-in programmable microprocessor supports monitoring and transfer of information in real time to a key performance indicator and predictive “RAG” analytics dashboard enabling you to make informed decisions on your business resources.

In excess of 40,000 sensors measuring environments, assets and power across the world

From standard workplace environments in the UK, Europe, Asia and America to lifts and escalators in some of London transport network we provide access to information many clients can’t see and don’t know about until it’s too late.

Because our solution is independent from existing technology infrastructure and battery powered we can implement our sensors very quickly with minimal or no disruption to your working day.

It is a well-established fact in the workplace industry that most organisations only use on average between 45% and 65% of their office space. Our sensor solutions provide the detail required to effectively manage your space usage, identify those locations currently under-utilised, even down to the specific floor location and business group.

For workplace environments we use our room and occupancy sensors to provide utilisation data on a continual basis giving your property teams direct access to patterns of usage by building, floor, zones or business groups.

This information is essential in providing “evidence based” metrics to support alternative workplace change and drive efficiency within your portfolio.

Maintaining operation of your environments is a goal for us and we know your critical assets are essential to keep your business operational.
Assets have a recognised pattern of power consumption, temperature values, we track and trend this information to identify effective working parameters of operation. Our predictive analytics approach monitors any deviation from the norm to trigger “amber” alerts directly to your maintenance teams to avoid catastrophic failure.

Lifts, escalators, HVAC, catering equipment, refrigeration units are only some of the uses our sensor technology can be put to for continual monitoring.

Our team brings a wealth of knowledge to find the right solution for your organisation, however it’s the combined collaborative approach we drive that results in the best outcome.

Occupancy sensor

Occupancy Sensor

Overview

The occupancy sensor identifies the utilisation of a workplace position through movement and thermal measurement. In an office environment this sensor would be placed under the desk, at a team table, reception desk etc. Any location occupied by a person.

It is the combined measurement of all these positions that provide valuable insights into how your space is used. Because the sensor is continually monitoring the occupation the data provides fact-based proof of occupancy over long periods of time supporting changes within the workplace by identifying those occupants with high levels of mobility.

Functionality

  • Easy to implement and set up
  • Continuous measurement 24 hours a day 365 days a year
  • High level of accuracy
  • Battery powered min 3 years
  • Low maintenance
  • Internal sensor diagnostics monitored centrally
  • Family of products using the same data transfer technology
  • Monitors the profile usage of the specific workspace
  • Foundation data for supporting change

Technical Data

The core of our innovative technology, provides a low power network (iLan) via batteries, using radio frequency (RF) short-range wireless communication, low power microprocessor unit, providing 315, 433, 868 or 915 MHz communications, 868 MHz being the frequency most utilised for European and Middle East communications and 915 MHz for the USA.

People Counter

People Counter

Overview

The people counting sensor provides a very simple but effective way to monitor the occupancy of a meeting room, floor, zone and or breakout space. It will determine the occupancy/non occupancy for the area at a given 15 minute interval in time.

At a high level this will provide overall utilisation levels of the space and for specific meeting rooms it will support key performance indicators such as occupancy versus non occupancy to determine the actual real-time occupancy of meeting spaces.

Functionality

  • Reasonable level of accuracy
  • Battery powered
  • Low maintenance
  • Sensor condition monitored centrally
  • Part of the family of products using the same data transfer technology

Room Sensor

PIR Room Sensor

Overview

The PIR room detection sensor works on its own or in conjunction with the people counter. It senses the movement of a person within a space and transmits a time stamp of the event from when it first sensed the movement and when it stops sensing movement.

This provides very accurate information of when a space is in use and not in use. The same sensor can measure Lux levels of the space and provide a data feed to existing BMS systems to support control switching for equipment within meeting rooms.

Functionality

  • Easy to implement and set up
  • High level of accuracy
  • Battery powered
  • Low maintenance
  • Sensor condition monitored centrally
  • Part of the family of products using the same data transfer technology
