CoWorkr’s Sensor hardware, called a “WorkPoint”, reports an occupancy state using various methods of sensing. WorkPoints report a reading of “Occupied” instantaneously and otherwise, if no change of status is observed, a WorkPoint has a “heartbeat” that reports an update to CoWorkr every minute, letting CoWorkr know it’s online. WorkPoints also contain a notification button that reports to CoWorkr if pressed.
V1 - Version 1 WorkPoint that uses temperature or vibration sensing
V2 - Version 2 WorkPoint that uses temperature or vibration sensing
V3 - Version 3 “Motion” WorkPoint that uses passive infrared (PIR) sensing
WorkPoint UUID: Unique string defined by a WorkPoint’s Mesh Network radio, for example “B827EB13B5F2”
WorkPoint ID: Unique string assigned to a WorkPoint when created on CoWorkr, for example, “54f45a67ac641604fd9bfa1a”.
Name: A custom value assigned by users via CoWorkr’s app. Its default value is the WorkPoint’s UUID.
Firmware: The version of firmware running the WorkPoint.
Notes: A custom field for users to input misc. information regarding a WorkPoint
The state of a WorkPoint changes with time and its sensor status. The following states may exist:
connected - true if the WorkPoint has reported to the server within an anticipated time frame, false if hasn’t recently
reported to the server
recentlyConnected - (CoWorkr Admin use only)
occupied - true if the workPoint is reporting an occupied state, false if not occupied
occupiedBy - (CoWorkr Admin use only) string with admin info on the occupied state
occupyReason - (CoWorkr Admin use only) string with admin info on the occupied state
occupancyChanged - timestamp of the last reported change in status
recentlyOccupied - true if WorkPoint has been occupied within the last 5 minutes
flags.press - A notification button on the WorkPoint has been pressed
flags.button1 - WorkPoint Notification Button 1 has been pressed
flags.button2 - WorkPoint Notification Button 2 has been pressed
RSSI - (CoWorkr Admin use only) signal strength
battery - (CoWorkr Admin use only)
optical - (CoWorkr Admin use only) if available, a light intensity reading
CoWorkr's camera-based device uses a computer vision library and a machine-learning model to count humans in images. Counters create data based on the installer's "capacity" value. This is used to define WorkPointActivity records that combine the ID and UUID of the device plus '_N' where N is 0 to the max capacity-1. Counter records will be differentiated from WorkPoint sensor records by their automatically assigned Tag key and value: "sensor", and "counter" and have specific API calls that are different from WorkPoint calls.
Counter ID: Unique string given to a Counter when placed onto a FloorPlan, for example,
Counter UUID: Unique string associated with a Counter's Mesh Network radio, for example
Counter Capacity: Single numerical value assigned to a Counter by an admin in CoWorkr's App to define the maximum number of work settings in the area monitored by the Counter.
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 given to a WorkPoint when placed onto a Floorplan, for example,
WorkHub UUID: Unique string associated with a WorkHub’s Mesh Network radio, for example
A physical location from where 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. Note: Data timestamps are in UTC, this is notated by the "Z" at the end of each timestamp (
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 can be set by an admin in CoWorkr's App.
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 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: X,Y coordinate that locates a WorkPoint icon on a Floorplan image on CoWorkr’s App
Tags are attributes assigned to CoWorkr devices to help contextualize their locations. Tags are added to CoWorkr Devices by Users who are setting up a WorkPlace on CoWorkr's App. Tags are generally used to describe an object or place, for example, the object a Device is monitoring or the place where the object is located. Common Tags would describe departments, resources (displays, phones, whiteboards, etc.), furniture type, room type, space type, or other. Tags are not to be used to record the names of individuals using said locations - Tags containing personally identifiable information (PII) violate CoWorkr's EULA which all Users accept when signing up for the service.
Tags contain 2 fields: a Key and a Value. A tag may have 1 Key and Multiple Values. Here are some examples of Tags
Key: "Furniture", Value: "Desk"
Key: "Furniture", Value: "Chair-Swivel"
Key: "Department", Value: "Operations"
The following default Tags are automatically added to WorkPoints:
- Key: "Floor", Value: "FloorPlan Name"
"FloorName" is created by users on the App when creating a FloorPlan. An example is "floor 12".
- Key: "Sensor", Value: "Sensor Type"
"Sensor Type" is generated based on the device firmware. This may be "IR", "PIR", "Acceleration", "Counter", etc.
