Occupancy Monitoring System

Helping facilities managers to collect occupancy data and make informed decisions

Visionist Consulting

With the advent of smart building technologies, facilities managers have access to various IoT sensors that provide a comprehensive picture of building occupancy. These smart occupancy monitoring systems provide accurate, real-time information on space occupancy, which means that building managers no longer need to rely on estimates and approximations.

Benefits of smart occupancy monitoring systems

  • Optimise space management decisions

  • Alleviate pressure when up- or down-sizing

  • Promote social distancing

  • Make efficient resourcing allocations

  • Save on operating costs

  • Improve experience and comfort for tenants and workers

  • Monitor space usage

  • Use space more efficiently

How an occupancy monitoring system works

An occupancy monitoring system requires the deployment of sensors in a building. These sensors can detect an individual’s presence at desks, offices, common areas, and any other building spaces. These smart sensors are send real-time data to a central management dashboard. The dashboard is cloud-based and can be accessed at any time, from any connected device. It can also be configured to send instant alerts to the relevant manager if pre-defined activities take place.

Enabled by Smarter Technologies’ Orion Data Network, our smart occupancy monitoring system is wireless, easy to install and provides accurate data and reporting.

Real-time space management

Real-time occupancy monitoring enables the effective management of offices, desks and meeting rooms. With visibility of the utilisation of different areas of the building, staff have instant access to information about space availability. This avoids double-bookings and minimises time spent searching for available spaces.

Enforce and monitor social distancing

The COVID-19 pandemic has added an extra layer to businesses’ occupancy monitoring needs. To create safe working conditions and ensure compliance, building managers need to be able to optimise their space more effectively than ever before.

Occupancy monitoring will become vital to business success due to the coronavirus pandemic. Another reason why this is the case is that working patterns have changed, with more people hot-desking or working from home. This can make it difficult for a company to estimate the exact space they need. This is made simpler and more accurate with an occupancy monitoring system in place.

Space allocation

Elevated temperature and humidity have a negative effect on a cow’s feed intake, leading to reduced milk production. Heat stress can increase body temperature, which may affect the fat synthesis in the mammary gland and reduce the quantity and quality of the milk.

With Smarter Technologies’ ActiveHerd Livestock and Cattle Bolus, you will instantly receive data on abnormal temperature fluctuations during the lactation period, allowing you to take measures to reduce heat stress and improve milk production.

Improve tenant and employee comfort levels

Occupancy monitoring systems help to improve tenants’ and workers’ comfort levels by optimising HVAC functions based on the number and density of occupants. The software also ensure proper lighting conditions while helping organistions save on energy costs.
