now you can chat to us!

Welcome to our Metrikus product release update for October 2020. We’ve got lots of things to tell you about, so let’s dive right in.

What’s inside?

  • Density integration

  • New utilisation charts

  • Dials: aggregation selection

  • Custom capacity limits 

  • Intercom on the website

Density integration

Let’s start things off with a bang: Metrikus x Density, the integration we’ve all been waiting for. 

The need-to-know:

Density offers a highly accurate, completely anonymised people-counting sensor. Using a depth sensor, no information can be traced back to individuals who cross the sensor field. 

We have now integrated Density into the Metrikus platform. This enables their accurate, anonymous technology as an option for Metrikus customers who want to prioritise accuracy, but also have the option of the additional anonymity.

Why this is great:

✅ Super-accurate, industry-leading sensor
✅ Accuracy consistently over 95%
✅ No camera means ultimate privacy And let’s be honest – they look pretty nice, too.

New utilisation charts

In this release, we’re giving you not one, but two new ways of visualising your data. Aren’t we nice?

Occupancy utilisation: by day

You can now view utilisation data over a chosen period of time highlighting the average and peak utilisation across individual days of the week. You want to see average utilisation for all Thursdays during September? No problem.

Occupancy utilisation: by hour

This chart helps you to view utilisation data over a chosen period of time highlighting the average and peak utilisation across each hour of the day. 

So you can see your occupancy on all Thursdays in September, but you can also now see average utilisation between 11:00-12:00 across all those Thursdays, too.

occupancy monitoring charts

Why these are great:

In these continually uncertain times, these visualisations could really help with efficient organisation of your space and teams. 

For example, you could identify that a particular department rarely comes into the office on Fridays. At a glance, you could see that the space could be made readily available to other teams.

✅ Average utilisation values are calculated from the data within your building’s normal operating hours

✅ Get specific: see data for a particular floor, area or department

✅ All data is exportable as an Excel file for further analysis

Dials: aggregations selection

 The need-to-know:

 Dials have been updated and now allow you to select what type of aggregation you want applied to the data. Choose from mean, minimum or maximum.

 For example, you can now create a dial to display the current maximum CO2 reading across all the air quality sensors within a space.

wellness dials

Why this is great:

✅ Further customisation and personal configuration of your dashboard

✅ See more meaningful values on the dials when looking at groups of sensors 

✅ Use these visualisations to make more informed decisions

✅ Thresholds are visually displayed within the dials – see at a glance if the displayed values are within optimal range or not.

Custom Capacity Limits

The need-to-know:

This one is short but sweet. We have added the ability to set your own custom capacity limit for each floor within a building.

Why this is great:

✅ Set custom limits you may now have due to social distancing restrictions

✅ New thresholds can be seen within the capacity panel

✅ The chart will highlight the times where this limit has been exceeded

✅ Allows for close monitoring where thresholds must be adhered to
