Single Space
When viewing metrics for a single space (like one conference room) VergeSense is able to provide the maximum number of people observed from a single sensor report during the time frame selected. If 8
people were recorded in a space at 10:10am
VergeSense would have a Peak Person Count of 8
.
This metric can also be presented for a building or floor if it is serviced by a VergeSense entryway sensor. Similar to a single space, the entryway sensor allows VergeSense to provide the maximum number of people from a single sensor report.
Multiple Spaces
When viewing metrics for multiple spaces such as:

All conference rooms on a floor

A space group made up of some desks and offices

All floors in a building
each space has a time when it recorded its individual Peak Person Count. Take a floor with two conference rooms, for example. Suppose, on a given day:

Conference Room A
had a Peak Person Count of4
at8am

Conference Room B
had a Peak Person Count of8
at4pm
What is the Peak Person Count across the Conference Rooms on this floor for the day? If we simply sum the Peak Person Count values for the individual spaces we get 12
. But these peaks were many hours apart, and there's no telling if any of the 4
people counted in Conference Room A at 8am
were also in Conference Room B at 4pm
!
Furthermore, if we try to sum the individual space peaks (even for a single hour) we get overly inflated Peak Person Count values, which stray further from reality the longer the time frame that is considered. Therefore, we need to determine some interval of time that allows us to derive meaningful metrics when multiple spaces are considered.
VergeSense uses 1hr intervals for metrics which are computed across multiple spaces. In the example above, we look at each hour block and first determine the Average Person Count in that hour for every space.

Conference Room A
had an Average Person Count of3.5
from8am9am

Conference Room B
had an Average Person Count of1.0
from8am9am

Conference Room A
had an Average Person Count of0.5
from4pm5pm

Conference Room B
had an Average Person Count of6.0
from4pm5pm
From 8am9am
the conference rooms had a total Average Person Count of 4.5
, and from 4pm5pm
the conference rooms had a total Average Person Count of 6.5
. Therefore, the Peak Person Count for the conference rooms on this floor occurred from 4pm5pm
, with a Peak Person Count of 6.5
.
