How to install ThingseePRESENCE

Things to note when planning the installation

ThingseePRESENCE is for indoor use only
ThingseePRESENCE is more sensitive to movement across sensor detecting area than towards sensor
ThingseePRESENCE can measure the only movement inside detecting area eg. it is not a volumetric sensor
Place sensor 2.5m/8ft above floor level and avoid locations where pets can climb to a middle part of detection field. Reduce sensitivity in these cases
To cover all required movement, use multiple sensors in a big room
Placing sensor to the corner enables better detection area coverage
Sensors can be placed either to the wall or to the roof
If the sensor is placed to the roof in the low height space, sensors should be placed close enough to each other to cover the detecting area

Things to avoid when planning the installation

Nearby heating or cooling devices and/or vents. Especially direct warm or cool air blow towards sensor can cause false functionality
Avoid direct or indirect sun light
Avoid nearby halogen lamps or similiar hot surface lamps
Placement of nearby radio equipment like Wifi routers or any other similar high power RF transmitters
Places where door or similar object can block required detection area
Attachment to surfaces which can vibrate as it may cause false functionality

Installation

A detection area is cone-shaped with a possibility to alter the area by using different domes

Visitor Counter Dome

Visitor counter dome. Detection beam can easily be adjusted with the separate Adjustment Dome. It is easy to install and makes the detection beam more accurate

Use correct screw type!
Dome can be attached with screws to ensure robust installation

When using only attachment clips, screw attachment parts can be cutted off. Do not damage attachment clips while cutting!
Install Thingsee PRESENCE sensor to the roof inside of the room. Place sensor in the middle of the door opening and 5 to 10 cm distance from the wall. Make sure that there is no blocking objects between the sensor and the area wanted to be detected
Install Thingsee PRESENCE sensor to the top of the door opening in the middle of the door opening. Make sure that there is no blocking objects between the sensor and the area wanted to be detected

Desk Occupancy Dome

Detection beam can easily be adjusted with the separate Adjustment Dome. It is easy to install and makes the detection beam more accurate.
Use a correct screw type!
Dome can be attached with screws to ensure robust installation
When using only attachment clips, screw attachment parts can be cutted off. Do not damage attachment clips while cutting!
Thingsee PRESENCE is possible to install under the table to detect usage of the working place. Sensor sensitivity should be decreased to avoid unwanted detections outside of the working place.
Install Thingsee PRESENCE under the table cover as middle as possible. If there are objects under the table, place the sensor near to object on the user side of the object. Make sure there is 50mm gap between ThingseePRESENSE and object to ensure maintenance work.
