Presence Detection | People Counting

Lexington - The Tannery

Background

They are a privately-owned, full service real estate development and together with InnoConn Construction Corp, their construction arm, they have over 30 years of experience specializing in the acquisition, adaptive reuse, and new construction developments in both the commercial and residential segments. Lexington Partners, LLC has corporate offices located in downtown Hartford, CT, and properties throughout New England.

Challenge

Residential properties have shared spaces such as fitness gyms, lounges and sometimes even restaurants as in the case of The Tannery. Knowing real-time usage data can provide critical insight to understand how their facilities are used and how they can improve it. For the tenants, energy saving technology embedded into the building could be an attractive benefit.

  • No data to monitor gym usage
  • Possible push back from tenants if using cameras other than security purposes
  • reducing energy expenses by auto controlling HVAC and lighting during vacancy
  • traditional sensors are not reliable enough to detect true presence without false alarm

Solution

Xandar deployed true presence detection and people counting radars through several key locations in the residential property.
