This pilot project will provide McMaster University / Facility Services with Wi-Fi Occupancy Detection and Visualization.
The pilot will provide visualization of occupancy in spaces to better understand the opportunities related to automated management of buildings such as HVAC controls for energy savings and improved lighting comfort. Three buildings have been selected for the pilot, IAHS (second floor), Thode Library and Mary Keyes. Privacy and security policies have been reviewed against the pilot, and data collection excludes any personal identifiable information. The pilot will provide data towards evaluating and recommending Phase 1 and it’s identified Success criteria to enable us to approve and plan the Phase 2 – Production Implementation after one year of cyclical analysis.
