Create a Smart Office with Sensor-Controlled Workspace and Office Management

See desk and room availability in your calendar, automate workspace check-ins, cancellations and no-shows. Expedite meeting room turnover and cleanings and get a clearer picture of employee workspace usage and behaviors.

The Office Place Sensor solution works with a variety of sensors, such as occupancy and motion sensors enabling different sensor solutions to work together with Microsoft 365. The integrated solution lets room or desk sensor’s API communicate with Microsoft 365 to give you smarter insights, automated functionality and capabilities for workspace and office management.

Smart Office with Sensor-Controlled Workspaces and Desks

Examples of how sensors can be used at your workplace

Our workplace sensor solution runs within our OfficePlace suite, integrates with Microsoft 365 and filters data from sensors to adapt and handle various business scenarios. No more unnecessary administrative work to correctly see desk and meeting room availability.

Simplify check-outs and cancellations

Detect when meetings end early or last longer than planned.

The workplace sensor can smartly detect a lack of occupancy or prolonged occupancy and provide information to end or extend the room booking.

The space will then appear free/occupied in Outlook® for other employees to book or not.
Customize the solution according to your needs.

Make instant bookings

Create a booking by walking into an available meeting room & book a desk when sitting down.

If a sensor registers activity in a meeting room or at a reserved desk, the workspace booking will be confirmed in Microsoft 365 / Exchange.

The room or desk will appear as booked in Outlook®.

Support facility management

Resources associated with a meeting are canceled when the sensor does not detect activity, although a room is booked.

If a reserved meeting room or desk is not used anyway, there is no need to clean it. Facility Management can get an overview of the facilities that are actually used.

Save costs and time by focusing only on the desks and rooms that have been in use.

See up-to-date availability

See up-to-date desk occupancy and meeting room availability in your Outlook® calendar.

Overview floor plans can show you which desks are occupied and where you can find your perfect spot.

The sensor provides information to OfficePlace. When occupancy is registered, the workspace will appear occupied on floor plans and in the Outlook® calendar.

Gain insights with Business Intelligence

Optimize resources and office space.

The sensor solution provides data about no-shows, cancellations, usage time, and more. It can help you answer questions like:

– How many hours is a specific room or desk used?

– Which days or hours are resources used the most – or least?

– Which desks are booked the least and which areas are the most popular?

Optimize real estate costs

See data about the sensors in an interactive up-to-date dashboard.

The OfficePlace Sensor dashboard can help adjust your procedures and save on costs by providing data insights that help property managers make informed decisions, such as:

– How large does the office need to be?
– Do we have space that can be sub-let?
– Do we have more space than we need?

How you can use the data you collect when using occupancy sensors

Occupancy sensors or motion sensors for the office make space and resource management easier. Take a look at the OfficePlace Sensor dashboard and use it to determine the optimal employee-to-seat ratio, saving on real estate and maintenance expenses. The BI data can for example help you determine when and which desks and rooms are used the most, or at what time of day they are occupied least. The options are many.

What is a workplace sensor? 


A workplace sensor is a device designed to gather data and interact with various platforms to analyze and offer insights into the utilization of office spaces and desks. This makes them a fundamental element of an office’s Internet of Things (IoT) technology strategy.

Typical workplace sensors encompass desk sensors, motion sensors, or occupancy sensors for meeting rooms. These sensors employ passive technology to detect both heat and movement. They are typically installed beneath desks, on ceilings, or at elevated positions on walls to ensure comprehensive room coverage.

Workplace sensors can seamlessly integrate with room booking software to optimize the utilization and management of office spaces.

The implementation of office sensors has the potential to transform any establishment into an intelligent workspace that enhances operational efficiency and employee well-being. Furthermore, these sensors provide valuable real-time insights that can be leveraged for informed decision-making.

Why should I invest in office sensors?


The implementation of workplace sensors can enhance overall operational efficiency within companies by capturing and quantifying usage and occupancy data. It facilitates streamlined discovery and reservation of meeting rooms, facilitates in-depth analysis of workplace utilization, and offers a comprehensive understanding of space usage patterns. Consequently, users gain insights into room availability, duration of occupancy, and the availability of unoccupied rooms.

Occupancy and motion sensors in the office contribute for example to:
– improved employee experience
– effective space utilization
– better sustainability

What information can sensor data provide for optimizing space?


Incorporating sensor data into space optimization strategies provides a good understanding of how office spaces are utilized. This empowers organizations to make informed decisions that enhance employee experiences, boost productivity, and maximize the value of their physical work environment.

Office sensor data also provides insights that benefit room booking by displaying up-to-date room availability and usage patterns. Workplace optimization is aided by understanding peak usage times, identifying underutilized areas, and recognizing collaboration zones. The efficiency of desk booking improves as data reveals trends in desk occupancy. These insights inform better space allocation, enhance productivity, and elevate the overall workplace experience.

What are workplace occupancy sensors used for?


Workplace occupancy sensors are utilized to monitor and manage the utilization of office spaces and help you get a clearer picture of employee workspace usage and behaviors.

Occupancy sensors aid in space utilization analysis, allowing organizations to make informed decisions regarding office layout and resource allocation.

In combination with a desk booking system like Resource Central, you can even see desk and room availability in your Outlook® calendar, and automate workspace check-ins, cancellations or no-shows.
