Every customer has his own goals, ideas and wishes. thingdust can be flexibly adapted to these and offers various application possibilities.

Long-term installation with live view for employees and evaluation option for building owners and facility managers.


The customer has built new premises for over 1000 employees. The buildings are equipped with 215 meeting rooms, quiet workspaces and work boxes. These are spread over two buildings with 6 floors each.

The thingdust solution is mainly used for orientation in the building. With the web-based dashboard, employees can find freely available places with their smartphone. The measurement data of the sensors are additionally stored and are available for the occupancy analysis . These allow, for example, the comparison of meeting rooms reservations to the real use. Poorly used spaces can also be easily identified and the range of rooms can be adapted to their use. The live data is further transferred to an existing campus app via the API.

Analysis of the existing office concept over several months to define the optimal sharing ratio.

The customer has an existing building with around 700 workstations and would like to find out which sharing ratio is to be implemented in the planned new building. The data should be collected and evaluated within six months.

For this purpose, the use of the individual workstations (distribution of the sensors according to the random principle) is measured in order to determine which workstations are no longer needed in desk sharing. Since six months are available for the measurement, the individual areas are each measured for two months and the sensors are shifted twice. Thanks to the simple installation with magnets or double adhesives and the flexible network within a few hours.

Temporary check of the number of seats in meeting rooms.


The customer has, distributed over several floors, meeting rooms with different numbers of seats. These vary from one to twelve seats. The customer had the feeling that they were not really well utilized.

In order to measure the occupancy, thingdust sensors were installed under the tables for each individual seat. These sensors measure the occupancy of the individual chairs and enable the evaluation of the actual use of the rooms. In a short time it could be determined that the rooms for up to 12 persons are only used by an average of three persons.

Long-term installation with connection to existing room finding tool via thingdust-API


The ZHB Luzern has a large number of learning places. These are all visible on an existing system, which also allows the display of books on the individual shelves. To avoid having to offer the students a new platform with additional login, the ZHB was looking for a solution with integration into the existing system.

The sensors are installed at the individual learning stations and the live data is transferred to the Artec system via the thingdust API. The visitors of the ZHB have the possibility to check the occupancy at home and can decide if the way is worth it.

Live occupancy display on screen for employees and visitors .

The insurance company is currently testing various shared office concepts and was looking for a solution to display live occupancy so that employees can see vacant workspaces directly at the entrance.

The sensors installed at the individual locations measure the occupancy in real time and with the thingdust front screen view this can be easily displayed on an info screen. In order to measure the occupancy, the employee does not need another device, but the sensor measures the presence with a PIR-sensor. At the same time the customer has the possibility to find out how the utilization of the different modules is and can plan his entire changeover based on the employees needs.
