Current Events

We are in unprecedented times, and workplace tech is especially needed to help companies plan for a post-COVID workplace. Our AI-powered sensing products and platform are being called on more than ever to serve commercial real estate operators and employees of the modern workforce. We have been at the center of space planning conversations focused on helping companies comply with public health guidelines of social distancing, sanitation, among other applications. As companies plan the return to work for their teams, we are working with speed, accuracy, and care to deliver a crucial service in this transitional time.

Our Product

Deployed in minutes, our high-accuracy quick-installation sensors are able to identify the presence of people and key objects in the context of an office environment that signal how space is being used. Our analytics platform creates a sphere of intelligence within properties and provides actionable insights and AI-powered recommendations to help building managers make effective space planning decisions.

We’re building and training our sensors to become even smarter, with the goal of catering to an even wider range of customers, use cases, and industries. Our sensor-as-a-system and intuitive analytics dashboard provide a real-time view into what is happening in a space, and over time our sensors automatically learn to detect new types of events on the go.
