Tomorrow’s buildings will be smarter. New technologies are already providing occupants with more practical, safer, more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly work and living spaces. Smart building developments are also enabling building managers to offer innovative services. The technology behind thermal activity sensors, which has been successfully used in preventive maintenance for more than two decades, is the only mature and accessible solution capable of meeting today and tomorrow’s smart buildings needs.
Thermal activity sensors can detect more than just movement. They can make a distinction between an alarm triggered by a pet or an intruder. Thus, thermal activity sensors bring intelligence to alarm systems, guaranteeing a significant reduction in the number of false alarms.
Retail stores and other public access buildings can use thermal activity sensors to accurately count and locate people on their premises. This way management can staff areas with high volume of activity more appropriately or improve retail store traffic flow, and thereby enhance the overall customer experience, while respecting customer anonymity.
Office buildings and other commercial facilities can leverage thermal activity sensors to control building systems such as lighting or HVAC in order to improve occupant comfort, and optimize workspace management.
Thermal activity sensors can contribute to improving patient care, as well. Healthcare facilities can use these sensors to intervene more rapidly should a patient or others fall while on their premises.
As thermal activity sensors can detect abnormally high temperatures, building occupants and operators can be alerted to a problem before people or property are at risk.
Our thermal activity sensors help smart-buildings system designers create effective, reliable solutions for detecting and classifying occupant activities without infringing upon occupant privacy.
