AVUITY Introduces Next-Generation Sensors for Improved Accuracy and Efficiency
AVUITY, a leading provider of innovative workplace technology and space utilization solutions, today announced the launch of its newest line of sensors designed to revolutionize the industry with their exceptional accuracy and efficiency.
The new VuAI sensors feature state-of-the-art technology and advanced algorithms to deliver unparalleled precision in real-time data collection and analysis. These cutting-edge sensors are capable of detecting not only occupancy and utilization, but also measuring even the slightest variations in temperature, light, noise and humidity. The new VuAI sensors provide customers with the most holistic, accurate and reliable information of any sensor on the market.
"We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new VuAI system," said Brad Johnson, CEO of AVUITY. "Our team has worked tirelessly to develop a product that sets a new standard in the industry, with up to three times the detection area of our previous sensors and twice the battery life. We believe these sensors will be a game-changer for clients who require the highest level of accuracy and efficiency."
AVUITY's new sensors give enterprises a lower cost of entry to get the data they need to make informed decisions on their office space and real estate footprint quickly. The sensors are also easy to install and operate, providing customers with a seamless integration into their existing building management systems and processes. They evn have the ability to be converted to Power Over Ethernet (POE) and daisy-chained together, giving clients the ability to customize the system for their needs.
"We didn't stop at the sensor, we also worked to increase the abilities of our gateways," said Ian Iliff, Director of IoT & Artificial Intelligence. "We will be releasing the new gateway in the second quarter, and along with the new VuAI sensors we are confident that this technology will help our customers achieve their goal of optimizing their real estate footprint."
With this upgrade, the VuAI sensor is capable of understanding real-time occupancy and utilization of over 1,000 sq. ft. when installed on a 9 ft. ceiling, independently monitoring the utilization of 20 individual desks with a single sensor, and reporting both active and passive occupancy (often referred to as "signs of life") all while maintaining a battery life of between 4 and 10 years. The expanded coverage area will allow for customers to reduce the number of sensors needed by greater than 30%, resulting in materially lower costs related to hardware and installation.
Commenting on how this will impact current and future customers, Brad Johnson said, "The wider coverage area will materially reduce the total sensor cost for customers. We are preparing by building out our international presence as current customers demand rolling out the new sensor across their entire global real estate portfolio."
AVUITY will also offer customers the option of powering the VuAI with Power over Ethernet ("POE"). They expect customers to deploy the POE option in scenarios where changing batteries is impractical, such as ceiling heights of greater than 20 feet. Whether battery or POE powered, the VuAI provides the same great data with the full AI back end. The versatility of the new VuAI sensors will allow AVUITY to cover every office scenario.
AVUITY has 11 years of experience serving the occupancy monitoring industry. Started as part of an architecture and design firm, the company now operates as an independent technology business dedicated to helping clients achieve their goals with precision, efficiency, and accuracy. With a focus on providing state-of-the-art technology and unparalleled customer support, AVUITY is committed to delivering the most holistic, accurate data to real estate teams around the world as part of our passion for improving design and operations.
