SALT LAKE CITY – November 11, 2020 – Monnit Corporation’s ALTA® Motion Detection Sensor has long been one of the company’s best-selling products, and it just got better. A new wide-angle option, gives facility managers the ability to audit seat occupancy at desks, cubicles, and conference room tables.

“Large commercial organizations have challenges with understanding their facilities occupancy and usage. Is the building over/under utilized? Do they need to build additional square footage or consolidate space? Those are data points that increase or decrease the bottom line,” says Brad Walters, Monnit CEO. “The wide-angle motion sensor enables them to monitor tight spaces (like under a desk) and collect accurate data for better decision making.”

Rather than a camera, the sensor records heat signatures to improve reading accuracy and data reliability while boosting the aperture from a 60 to 100-degree viewing angle. The wide-angle option is available in a bone white commercial housing and is powered by two AA batteries.
