Metric Definition: Peak Person Count

 

Single Spaces, Groups of Spaces (Space Types), Floors, and Buildings

 

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.

The peak for a group of spaces (space types, space groups, floors, or buildings) similarly uses the point in time (down to the second) where the person count was the highest. For groups of spaces, we find the absolute maximum person count for each of the spaces, sum these values together, and then find the second with the largest aggregate. That is then reported as the peak person count. 

 

FAQ 

Q1: Can you provide an example of absolute maximum for a group of spaces? 

Absolute maximum (note that there are many more person counts taken into consideration in this method but for example purposes we are using a limited set):

Room

10:00…

10:06…

10:21…

10:36…

10:42…

Q2: Did VergeSense calculate Peak for groups of spaces differently in the past? 

  • We previously found the average person count for each of the spaces within an hour, sum these values together, and then find the hour with the largest aggregate. That summed valued with the largest aggregate is the number reported as the peak for that group of spaces.
