Desk Occupancy Sensors

Measure occupancy with tiny, self-adhesive, wireless sensors, placed underneath every desk. The sensors detect desk occupancy by measuring the change in temperature caused by a person’s presence. At 19 x 19 x 2.5 mm and a weight of 2 grams, these desk occupancy sensors are unobtrusive. The technology, patented by Disruptive Technologies, gives these wireless sensors a battery life of between 5 and 15 years, depending on the chosen data transfer interval.

Cloud Connectors

The desk occupancy sensors automatically connect with the nearest Cloud Connector, a plug-and-play gateway, to transmit data to the cloud via an end-to-end secure solution that removes typical security weak points in the IoT architecture and simplifies implementation and maintenance. The Cloud Connectors are by default connected to a 4G/LTE mobile connection or can be connected through your company´s IT infrastructure.

Planon Workplace Insights

Information captured from the desk occupancy sensors is analysed and conveniently displayed in Planon Workplace Insights. The data is displayed as ‘live’ (near real-time) and historic ‘heatmaps’ are superimposed on your building floorplan, together with a set of occupancy charts for detailed analysis. This helps you make the right decisions to optimise your spaces and align with employee needs. It also reduces unnecessary expenses by managing energy usage and cleaning services based on actual space use.

Easy Setup and Implementation

Planon Quickstart for Desk Occupancy Insights comes with a detailed installation guide and a custom-designed onboarding app enabling you to install the sensors and cloud connectors within hours. Planon experts will then set up your Planon Workplace Insights environment and onboard your floorplans.

With Planon Quickstart for Desk Occupancy Insights, you can be up and running in days!
