The Officebooking ESCA Omni sensor measures occupancy of your desks and (meeting) rooms. The battery powered wireless sensor is mounted either under a desk or on the ceiling of a room. By using the sensor in combination with the Officebooking app your users are able to individually check-in on a reservation.
ESCA Omni sensors use passive infrared technology (PIR) to detect occupancy status. Our proprietary SMART PIR technology uses AI technology to minimise false positives based on the context of the location and occupancy history. The sensor communicates wirelessly via LoRa WAN. Officebooking IOT Network services provide real time, bi-directional processing of sensor data.
ESCA Omni sensors use infrared temperature to detect the presence of humans and BLE scanning of their devices.
SMART PIR technology is Officebooking proprietary firmware to improve occupancy accuracy and reduce false detections. All data is analysed within our platform and used to train the sensors.
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is used to detect the presence of BLE enabled devices such as smartwatches or mobile phones.
LoRa has an average indoor coverage of approximately 50 meters around the individual sensor nodes, dependent of your office layout, construction and location of the gateway.
Occupancy detection and LoRa communication node. Operates as stand alone node. Data contains movement and movement intensity. Status message every 8 hours. The node sends (after first detection) a data message every 5 minutes. Sensitivity threshold, message scheduling, UUID, Major and Minor remote configurable.
