Yorkland Controls Limited Partners with Irisys, to Deliver Real‐Time People Counting and Occupancy Solutions
TORONTO ONTARIO, July 28, 2021 – Irisys (a Fluke Brand) provide people counting solutions that deliver insights to building owners and operators about how their buildings are really being used, enabling them to improve operational efficiencies.
Irisys has recently added BACnet/IP support to their smart IOT people counting sensors, allowing accurate and reliable people count data to be consumed by various building management platforms.
Together, Irisys and Yorkland will offer immediate access to people counting solutions that leverage these BACnet/IP and IOT enabled sensors. Designed for solution providers, system integrators and contractors, Irisys sensors have been developed to simplify and accelerate the installation and commissioning process as well as enable end‐users to gain benefits from data integration to their BAS systems.
People count and occupancy data has huge value in commercial real estate, from understanding space utilization for space planning and optimization, to reducing building operational costs, improving employee productivity and promoting occupant wellbeing.
“I am excited about the partnership and the various real world applications”, said Gerry Cellucci, Vice President of Systems Solutions. “For example, using live data from the new BACnet/IP people counting sensors, the building’s ventilation system can automatically control ventilation based on the demand of the building’s users ‐ enabling energy and cost savings. Basing ventilation rates on a per person calculation, actually increases indoor air quality when a space is occupied, improving wellbeing and productivity. Energy consumption is reduced when a space is unoccupied, as the system is not solely relying on carbon dioxide sensors.”
“We are very pleased to be partnering with Yorkland Controls”, said Yizhou Chen, General Manager, Irisys. “Combining our people counting sensors with Yorkland’s experience in BAS, enables building owners and operators to realize huge benefits”.
