As a facilities manager, you’ll want to know which rooms in your office are being used and when. You’ll want to be able to effortlessly manage meeting rooms to ensure no room gets double-booked or over-filled.

A Room Management System can be integrated with PIR sensors and cameras to measure how many people go in and out of a designated room. The data can then be displayed in real-time on the room booking system to let people know when a room is in use or has reached its full capacity.

How do PIR-motion detection sensors work?

PIR stands for passive infrared sensor. Humans emit IR radiation and the sensors can detect heat energy in an environment. They’re commonly used in motion detector and automatic lighting applications.

For completely automated occupancy monitoring, you should consider these smart building elements.

PIR sensors not only detect when someone enters the room, they also detect when a room has reached its full capacity. This technology can also enable the lights, sound masking and video conferencing systems to automatically switch on. This creates an ultra-efficient meeting room experience for everyone.

As soon as the total occupancy level has been reached, access can also be restricted. This is useful for preventing anyone from interrupting your session and maintaining a safe work environment. You can easily set and adjust the occupancy levels.

  • Provide a live view of occupancy and availability, so users can quickly find available rooms or workspaces.
  • Automatically check users into a room by detecting their presence, allowing no-show bookings to be released.
  • Build accurate reports of which areas are most used and identify any parts of a building which are under-used.
