0.1 WorkPoint Sensor
CoWorkr’s V4 WorkPoint Sensor is a Mesh Network low-energy-enabled device for detecting occupancy using passive infrared sensor readings. This matchbook-sized device uses an ultra-low-power circuit & 2.4 GHz wireless for high-frequency data collection, and a 5+ year lifetime utilizing a LI coin cell battery. The WorkPoint Sensor requires the use of CoWorkr’s firmware and its data requires a network-enabled and authenticated Hub for collection in CoWorkr’s secure cloud environment.
In simpler terms, a WorkPoint Sensor is an occupancy sensor that uses motion detection as a basis for determining occupancy.
V1 - Version 1 WorkPoint that uses temperature or vibration sensing (no longer available)
V2 - Version 2 WorkPoint that uses temperature or vibration sensing
V3 - Version 3 “Motion” WorkPoint that uses passive infrared (PIR) sensing
V4 - Version 4 (2019+) "Motion" WorkPoint Sensor that uses a digital passive infrared
0.2 WorkSpace Counter
CoWorkr’s WorkSpace Counter is a Mesh Network low-energy-enabled device for counting occupants using infrared sensing and a lightweight deep-learning AI model. This wallet-sized device uses an ultra-low power circuit and confidential components, including a low-power thermal sensor for anonymous counting of occupants. The WorkSpace Counter requires the use of CoWorkr’s firmware and its data requires a network-enabled and authenticated CoWorkr Hub for collection in CoWorkr’s secure cloud environment.
A WorkHub is CoWorkr’s internet-enabled device that reads and pushes WorkPoint data to CoWorkr’s servers. WorkHubs, or “Hubs”, require an internet connection using LAN, WiFi, or Cellular dongle to operate.
WorkHub ID: Unique string is given to a WorkPoint when placed onto a Floorplan, for example, “54f45a67ac641604fd9bfa1a”
WorkHub UUID: Unique string associated with a WorkHub’s Mesh Network radio, for example, “CE27EB1455F1”
A WorkPlace is a physical location from which WorkPoints and Workhubs are streaming. A WorkPlace is generally used to represent a single location that is based on a geographical address - for example, a building. WorkPlaces contain one or more Floorplans to which WorkPoints and WorkHubs are assigned.
WorkPlace ID: A unique case-sensitive alphanumeric identifier, for example, “YvamDKDx6KD4QZh5g”, given to a WorkPlace on creation.
WorkPlace Name: A custom field assigned to the WorkPlace by a user.
Address: The physical location of the WorkPlace. This is also used to pair with the geolocation services of WorkHubs.
Timezone: The local timezone of the WorkPlace.
Group: A grouping of users with specific access permissions. Groups are generally created for each customer to segment access but may also be a group of users that belong to a 3rd party that oversees multiple customers. A group is identified by a given Name and a case-sensitive alphanumeric ID, for example, “nzYf5H8RNBYSgrLHJ’
Start & End: “Start Date” is the first day the data is to stream from a corresponding WorkPlace. “End Date” is the day the data at the corresponding WorkPlace will end its streaming. These dates are generally defined by the customer’s subscription period.
Active Hours: “Active Start Hour“ and “Active End Hour” hours determine a time range wherein occupancy data will be ignored for a specific WorkPlace. This generally is used to eliminate occupancy data created outside of working hours such as that created by late-night cleaners. This is a custom field that an admin can set.
A FloorPlan is an image file used as a background for CoWorkr’s “FloorPlan” view on which WorkPoints are placed. This is commonly a cad-based 2D drawing that has been exported as a raster image like jpeg or png.
FloorPlan ID: A unique string assigned to a FloorPlan upon creation.
FloorPlan Name: A custom, required, field given to the FloorPlan image upon upload.
FloorPlan X, Y: A location on the FloorPlan using a X-Y coordinate system, typically used to describe a WorkPoint location
Location: A X, Y coordinate that locates a WorkPoint icon on a Floorplan image on CoWorkr’s App
Tags are values assigned to WorkPoints to describe but are not limited to, the physical location or the use of the space. Tags contain 2 values, a category and a value associated with that category. For example, a tag category/value for a WorkPoint assigned to a workstation may be “furniture/desk”.
Analytics is the method of creating and analyzing metrics that are created by CoWorkr to help describe your data.
The Interval setting is present throughout CoWorkr's App. Controlling the interval of occupancy will adjust the granularity of the data used to produce your metrics. Our highest resolution data is in 1-minute intervals, wherein you can produce your analytics to the finest granularity. Using a higher interval will lessen the resolution and ultimately increase the % Activity and other associated metrics.
The interval setting is a key input for all analytics features. Since it impacts the core Activity Data, it impacts all other metrics. For example, increasing the Interval will likely increase the Peak Activity as well as the number of Workers, and decrease the Vacancies. Select an Interval before you dive too deep into your analytics.
In the diagram below, we look at what happens when we use 3 different Intervals with 7 minutes of occupancy data.
