IoT Smart sensors are the crucial element of today’s building automation capabilities, as they provide the data required for optimizing building operations, energy savings and business intelligence. A critical IoT sensing breakthrough is capturing valuable data on how and where occupants use a building – a capability that current sensing technologies fall short of achieving.


With nearly 30 million consumer electronic devices installed worldwide since 2010, PointGrab has a proven ability to identify and deliver large scale solutions. Founded by pioneers of ultra-accurate computer vision technologies that convert human gestures to digital commands, PointGrab applies its superior artificial intelligence (deep learning) technology to the building automation ecosystem, where data is increasingly abundant, but efficient, real-time analytics is lacking. With the advent of its CogniPoint embedded-analytics sensors and edge-computing approach, PointGrab is fulfilling its mission in making truly intelligent buildings by understanding occupants’ behavior and space utilization.
