French group Terabee rolls out new smart building sensor solution

PARIS, September 9, 2021

French sensor solutions technology company, Terabee has launched a new smart building sensor solution, People Counting M, designed for doors up to 80 cm wide and narrow corridors. 
It can be used on all standard doorways – its low price-point making mass deployment commercially viable, differently from most existing solutions on the market.
With its 95% counting accuracy, the People Counting M uses 3D depth-sensing to provide footfall data and occupancy insights in real-time, enabling wider take-up of smart building technology.
"Now systems integrators and end users can monitor every standard door in a building to get accurate footfall insights at every corner, which is a game changer in real-time occupancy and footfall data. Smart buildings have just become smarter," remarked its CEO and Founder Max Ruffo.
"People Counting M can be connected via Ethernet or WiFi, depending on installation constraints and connectivity in the building. Wireless connectivity has been in hot demand, making installation times faster and reducing the total cost of ownership," he explained.
Once connected, the Terabee People Counting M device can push data directly to any cloud platform via HTTP(S) or MTTQ(S), or communicate with the Terabee Internet of Things platform. Removing the necessity to pull Ethernet cables further simplifies product use for those who can rely on WiFi for data transmission. 
"The flexibility to easily install and connect Terabee People Counting M via Ethernet or WiFi answers the main connectivity needs of our integrators," stated Ruffo.
Smart building decisions, including programming of heating, cooling and lighting can be made based on precise knowledge of how space in a building is being used, to better allocate resources and manage needs.
People Counting M, he said, was the smaller sibling of Terabee People Counting L-XL, the device for wide doorways and passageways, which can also be used in parallel to cover super wide entrances.
According to Ruffo, the facility owners and managers can better understand use of space, so staffing can be optimized, cleaning and maintenance can be scheduled based on footfall data and real use.
"People Counting M provides footfall data in all building locations, to build a deeper understanding of how spaces are really being used. It counts people passing through standard doors, to give a clear picture of footfall traffic," he explained. 
"End users can have detailed insights about how buildings are being used, in all spaces, not just the main areas, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
