Hi all, I’m the founder of a new tech company that helps businesses visualize, manage and plan their work spaces. (http://simple.space)
So uploading a floorplan and allowing interaction with an overlay of shapes and data on top is the easiest way to explain.
I want to tie SENSORS into this by allowing PiR (motion sensors) to capture if there’s people in meeting rooms, conference rooms or casual/informal spaces.
The goal: As an employee you can pull up our app and see which parts of the building have a free space to work in.
Naturally it also lets us correlate data like compare with “booked” calendar items to see who’s never attending their meetings… Businesses always complain they never have enough meeting rooms!
My Question: do you think a hub and a motion sensor can achieve this?
How do I want to do it? (DEVS!!)
Get a sensor to detect movement and report into an API hook (I.e. Hit a web page of ours),
Mesh: for bigger offices, I wonder how I can achieve this. I need to find out more on how the mesh network works!
Id love any feedback, comments and queries/feedback.
Maybe we can even open our app to the home market in the future, it might be more “appealing” than the usual home apps
