Smart building

Room occupancy monitoring via occupancy counters

The number of users of a room or space at any given time is a critical source of information for use in a smart building. This information can allow systems to manage lighting, heating and other utilities. During the COVID-19 pandemic, room occupancy monitoring has also been critical for adhering to social distancing practices.

Terabee People Flow Counting L-XL device

The People Flow Counting L-XL device from Terabee is a device which can reduce costs and optimize value from smart buildings, retail operations and office spaces. This device is a means of room occupancy monitoring that uses advanced Time-of-Flight technology whilst remaining GDPR compliant. When positioned in a doorway, this room occupancy counter device can keep track of the people passing in both directions through the door as they leave or enter a space. 

The Time-of-Flight technology is able to sense distances between users, gathering non-intrusive depth image data without capturing personal identity. The camera does not need any specific light levels for optimal performance, meaning room occupancy monitoring can be carried out in both light and dark conditions. 

Room occupancy monitoring and people traffic can be carried out by placing a ToF counting device in a doorway. This will offer both historical and real-time data regarding a room’s usage pattern and the managers of the device can keep track of when the room is full, empty, over capacity or under capacity. Sensors are a critical part of the room occupancy monitoring and data collection of a smart building and can inform specific decisions about where the resources should be allocated.

The importance of Time-of-Flight technology and thermal technology for room occupancy monitoring

Using Time-of-Flight technology means that data can be accumulated over time and room occupancy can be optimized for future usage.  Terabee have also pioneered a people-counting algorithm which is able to generate 98% accuracy or more. The benefits of this are multifaceted, providing immediate and ongoing returns on investment (ROIs) from the perspective of smoother business operations and clarity of planning. 

Users can deploy our room occupancy monitoring hardware to drive internal management decisions that enable them to extract the maximum value from a given space. Meeting rooms, for example, can be managed clearly and efficiently, with occupancy counting data supplementing booking systems. Additionally, occupancy counting data can support routine cleaning initiatives and predictive cleaning in the likes of washrooms, supporting the ongoing effort to champion greater hygiene and customer service standards in commercial environments.

By sensing thermal signature, Terabee People Occupancy Counting uses non-intrusive, anonymous heat source image data. Personal identity can never be captured. And since the device doesn’t need ambient light for optimal performance, it’s suitable for applications with low-light and no light, without losing accuracy.

People Occupancy Counting

Terabee People Occupancy Counting sensor stands out for its cutting-edge features. Using 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 spaces to reception halls, 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 personal identifiable information (PII) ensures privacy compliance, aligning with GDPR regulations and respecting individuals’ rights to privacy within monitored spaces. It ensures precise occupancy tracking in all light conditions. This is ideal for fine-tuning energy management, to optimize space use and automate building operations.
