What are the functionalities of Portal Beam, Smart Badge, CO2 Sensor, PIR Sensor? How do the 5 devices work together?

Portal Beam works as an all-in-one sensor, measuring occupancy, air quality, temperature, humidity, light and others, including detecting room-level certainty of the Smart Badge via IR sensor.

Cisco Catalyst access point reads the information gathered by the Portal Beam and detects the Smart Badge via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) signals, Hibou CO2, and Thingsee PRESENCE. With all this information captured, Cisco Catalyst access point sends the data to the Kio Cloud where data is processed by Kio Location Engine.

Smart Badge is detected by both Cisco access points via BLE and Portal Beam via IR. Both combinations will provide improved accuracy, which gives room-level certainty.

Hibou Air is a CO2 sensor. To reduce the risk of infection, it is important to keep the indoor concentration of exhaled breath as low as possible. This means rooms need to be ventilated whenever the concentration of exhaled air increases significantly and to ventilate them correctly.

Haltian Thingsee PRESENCE is a wireless PIR sensor for measuring people's presence through your facility. You can use the sensor for facility management and occupancy detection in various places such as offices, hospitals, or restaurants.

How do I install Portal Beam, Smart Badge, Thingsee PRESENCE, Hibou Air CO2?

  • 1 x Portal Beam - 9-in-1 BLE sensor that should be installed on the ceiling, center of a room, ideally room size about 200 sqft.
  • 1 x Smart Badge - an IR capable BLE badge card holder with 2 active buttons that can be carried on a leash or badge clip
  • 1x Hibou Air - an CO2 sensor and should be installed ideally right next to your desk on your hight level
  • 1x Thingsee PRESENCE - a PIR sensor that should be placed under a desk

What can I do with this starter kit? What use cases does it fulfil?
