In today’s evolving building landscape, the need for efficient space utilization and privacy-compliant solutions is paramount, especially within confined areas. Thermal occupancy devices have emerged as a game-changer in managing smaller spaces effectively while addressing concerns related to privacy and GDPR requirements.
Introducing thermal occupancy sensors
Thermal occupancy sensors, such as the Terabee People Occupancy Counting device, harness thermal imaging technology to detect human presence and count occupants accurately within spaces as small as 8 m x 8 m. These sensors utilize infrared radiation emitted by individuals, providing a non-intrusive, highly precise method of occupancy detection. With this technology, spaces can be optimized for maximum efficiency, allowing for better resource allocation and energy management.
People Occupancy Counting sensor
Terabee’s People Occupancy Counting sensor stands out for its cutting-edge features. Utilizing advanced thermal imaging, this sensor offers real-time, high-precision occupancy monitoring. With its compact design and easy installation, it seamlessly integrates into various environments, from offices and meeting rooms to public areas, enhancing space management capabilities. The device can focus on multiple regions of interest, up to eight, to monitor or exclude specific areas.
The sensor’s ability to count occupants accurately without capturing identifiable personal information ensures privacy compliance, aligning with GDPR regulations and respecting individuals’ rights to privacy within monitored spaces. Moreover it ensures precise occupancy tracking in all light conditions. This is ideal for fine-tuning energy management, optimizing space utilization and automating building operations.
Privacy and GDPR compliance benefits
Unlike traditional surveillance systems or RGB devices, thermal occupancy sensors do not capture or store images of individuals. Instead, they focus on detecting heat signatures, ensuring anonymity and safeguarding personal identities. This approach mitigates concerns about intrusive monitoring and potential data breaches, enhancing privacy protection within confined spaces.
The versatility of thermal occupancy sensors extends to various applications. In office settings, these sensors aid in workspace optimization, enabling better utilization of meeting rooms or workstations.
Their ability to accurately count occupants, show if a space is occupied or not, ensure GDPR compliance, and maintain privacy within confined areas are useful benefits in efficient space management.
