Milesight Rolled out the Impressive Desk & Seat Occupancy Sensor to Empower Space Occupancy in Hot Desking

Xiamen, China, August 21 - Milesight is pleased to announce the release of the new Desk & Seat Occupancy Sensor which brings both VS340 and VS341 for different requirements in various applications including hot desking. The cost-effective VS340 applies highly sensitive PIR to fulfill most application demands. And the highly accurate and low-latency VS341 with dual technology of PIR and thermopile provides the possibility for more precise applications.

Desk and seat occupancy is just a part of space occupancy in the workplace while it is critical for space utilization and resource allocation optimization especially when the flexible working mode becomes a trend. The past year has seen significant changes in the workplace industry, including a lasting shift towards hybrid work. While the return-to-office mandates played a role in the increase in global occupancy rates, it is clear that the workplace will continue to evolve and occupancy will likely never return to pre-pandemic levels. Global workplace occupancy saw consistent and strong growth in 2022. In fact, global average occupancy increased 257% throughout the year. This strong growth is likely attributed to the rising adoption of return-to-office mandates globally. (Cite from Verge Sense)

The Sensor for Desk & Seat Occupancy Conditions

The Desk & Seat Occupancy Sensor is designed for detecting whether a desk or seat is occupied which is supposed to be done by a person. It applies alternative highly sensitive PIR and dual-technology of PIR and thermopile to determine the occupancy statuses of the target desks or seats. By accurately detecting, the sensor makes data collecting on hot desking, occupancy patterns, resource allocation, and space utilization realizable and further promotes system collaboration, linkage, decision-making, and highly-valued management.

Highly Sensitive, Accurate, and Ultra Low Latency Sensors

The Desk & Seat Occupancy Sensor with non-invasive design is advantageous for easy installation and quick deployment in batches based on the compact size and wireless LoRaWAN® deployment. The highly sensitive PIR equipped sensor fulfills the needs of the majority of applications in a cost-effective way, and Milesight also provides a more accurate and low-latency sensor to enrich applications with dual technology. The accuracy will be up 98% and the incredible response in the 60s almost bring real-time detection. In addition, the adjustable PIR angles flexibly aim at the target area avoiding interference and unnecessary detection. It also features unique Milesight D2D communication for convenient linkage and long service life of 5 years to improve user experience.

Empowering Workspace Utilization and More

The detection and data collection will contribute to space occupancy utilization and bring more value to decision-making, management, and optimization for more industries and application scenarios. Workplace and real estate are its most targeted applications. The hybrid work and hot desking can be efficiently managed driving sustainable development flexibly. And the applications can be extended to libraries, food plazas, and traffic hubs where desk and seat occupancy is significant for management.

It is important that organizations embrace changes and adapt to the changing landscape of the workplace or other applications with the occupancy requirements by means of technologies. And that’s why the sensor is born to service and bring value.
