Find the right sensors for your office 

Smart office sensors can automate valuable facility data and empower better workplace experiences for employees. But only if you choose the right technologies for your office, follow best practices, and respect employee privacy.  



Why workplace occupancy sensors? 

Sensors designed for the workplace are helping companies improve their office spaces and how they are used. Wrong-sized, ill-designed, poorly utilized offices are an immense burden on companies. Not only do they skyrocket corporate real estate costs, but they can also drag down employee satisfaction and productivity.  

There are plenty of different products to choose from today, but the principle is the same: sense how people use an office space and use that information to help people make better choices. The result? Employees have an easier time using their offices, and office managers can answer key workplace questions at a glance.  


A wide range of office sensors 

Some sensors are more essential than others. The foundation of any smart office are motion-based occupancy sensors. They are the building blocks for smoother workdays and space utilization metrics. They support frictionless room booking, thanks to real-time availability statuses; more accurate cleaning services, after knowing what has been used; and make hybrid workplaces more efficient, because employees and managers know precise occupancy rates.  

But there’s more to smart office sensors than occupancy sensors. Smart offices can also collect data about badge swiping, indoor climate and air quality, or people counting metrics. All these insights inform smarter workplace strategies. Depending on your company needs, and the questions you want to answer, you may choose one or many of these sensors. 


The perfect workplace sensor approach 

To get the most from your smart office, you’ll need to find the right approach for your company. This means avoiding common mistakes that apply to every workplace, but it also means defining exactly what your own challenges are. What is your office struggling with? What data do you need to solve those struggles? What workplace questions do you want to answer?  

After reading “The essential guide to office occupancy sensors”, you’ll be equipped to choose the right approach. The guide introduces you to the wide range of smart office technologies and sensors, how they solve workplace challenges many businesses are facing today, and it also includes expert advice for getting the best results.
