French sensor solutions technology company Terabee has launched a new smart building sensor solution dubbed People Counting M.
In a release, the firm noted that the new offering is designed for doors up to 80 centimeters wide and narrow corridors. With its 95% counting accuracy, the People Counting M uses 3D depth-sensing to provide footfall data and occupancy insights in real-time, enabling wider take-up of smart building technology, the company said.
“Now systems integrators and end users can monitor every standard door in a building to get accurate footfall insights at every corner, which is a game changer in real-time occupancy and footfall data. Smart buildings have just become smarter,” said Max Ruffo, CEO and founder at Terabee.
Terabee also noted that People Counting M can be connected via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, depending on installation constraints and connectivity in the building.
Once connected, the Terabee People Counting M device can push data directly to any cloud platform via HTTP or MTTQ, or communicate with the Terabee Internet of Things platform.
Facility owners and managers can better understand use of space, so staffing can be optimized, cleaning and maintenance can be scheduled based on footfall data and real use, Terabee added.
People Counting M provides footfall data in all building locations, to build a deeper understanding of how spaces are really being used. It counts people passing through standard doors, to give a clear picture of footfall traffic. End users can have detailed insights about how buildings are being used, in all spaces, not just the main areas, the French company said.
Key features of the new sensor include:
-DPR-compliant by design
-Uses 3D depth sensing
-Ethernet and WiFi connectivity
-5V or PoE supply
-Easy-to-install and configure through a Web GUI
-Easy-to-read status LEDs
-Real-time and on-board computed data
-Remote device management and software updates
-Direct data integration to Cloud and servers via HTTP
“The flexibility to easily install and connect Terabee People Counting M via Ethernet or WiFi answers the main connectivity needs of our integrators,” said Ruffo.
