introduction to Thingsee PRESENCE IoT sensor device

Adrian Canales from Haltian is back in his introduction to Haltian series! In introduction to Thingsee PRESENCE IoT sensor, you’ll learn about Thingsee PRESENCE: a small, wireless device for occupancy monitoring and visitor counting.

To start, all Haltian sensor devices are wireless, battery operated, and come to our customers reconfigured with Wirepas mesh connectivity. Once you get your devices, all you need to do is to activate the sensors and the gateway, and they start receiving and sending out data immediately!

Thingsee PRESENCE is used in a variety of smart building and smart office applications, from hot-desking and utilization monitoring to analytics and security use-cases.

Visitor counting tells you your peak times

Another use case for Thingsee PRESENCE IoT sensor device is visitor counting. Installed above an entryway, Thingsee PRESENCE counts the passers-by and you can tell, for example, which times are the busiest.

Thingsee PRESENCE is often used in smart washroom solutions to alert the cleaning staff after a certain amount of people have visited a restroom. With this data, you’ll be able to create a more on-demand cleaning approach, instead of scheduled checks, and focus cleaning effort to areas where they’re needed the most.

Another use case for Thingsee PRESENCE is security: you can install the sensor device to entryways in remote locations and you’ll be able to tell if there’s somebody in an area where they’re not supposed to be, or if there’s any movement during hours when there’s not supposed to be anyone present.
