The Redwood Room Tracker provides real-time insights into conference room availability, to facilitate a productive workforce as well as provide actual room utilization data to facility managers, so they may confidently make space optimization decisions.
The solution uses occupancy sensors embedded in each meeting room to constantly collect actual utilization data. It integrates with popular calendaring systems including Microsoft Exchange® and Google Calendar™ to automatically free up unoccupied rooms that had been previously scheduled for meetings. The solution also makes finding an available meeting room a less aggravating and much faster experience, by giving workers real-time information on current occupancy in all conference rooms via the calendar application as well as a visual cue from an occupancy indicator light on the outside of the room.
Users can quickly identify conference rooms that are available now based on “presence” and the system automatically frees up rooms that are reserved, but have no people in them.
