Network Presence Sensing
Surprise! Your smart home or office now responds to you.
Change Detection can replicate the performance of current motion sensing hardware (which is often found in security hardware or in commercial lighting control) with some distinct cost and performance advantages.
State of technology: Robust and ready to rock. Namely, ready for chipset integration.
Use Cases: Lighting Control, Security
Presence Detection is true occupancy sensing. Most companies call motion sensors "occupancy sensors" when they are really just sensing motion. Presence Detection is different. It literally determines the presence or absence of people in a space. No more arm-waving to keep the lights on with this one!
State of technology: Tested, demonstrated, and ready for chipset integration.
Use Cases: Lighting Control, Security, HVAC Control, Building Automation Systems, Proximity Marketing
People Counting builds on the Presence Detection functionality by determining the number of individual people within a defined space at a given time.
As it turns out, according to studies sponsored by the Department of Energy, cost effective people counting functionality can have a significant impact on the United States' overall energy consumption. When was the last time you said the word, "Quadrillions?" That's how many BTUs we're talking about.
State of the technology: In the pipeline with initial data showing promise.
Use Cases: Lighting Control, Security, HVAC Control, Building Automation Systems, Proximity Marketing, Public Safety
People Locating leverages Presence Detection and People Counting to locate people in a space without the use of a fiducial element on each person. Requiring the greatest computational power, this functionality is the proverbial icing on the NPS cake.
State of technology: In the pipeline
Use Cases: Lighting Control, Security, HVAC Control, Building Automation Systems (namely building optimization), Proximity Marketing, Public Safety
