Promixa wearable tech
Lighting controls specialists, Prolojik (www.prolojik.com) has created the Proxima, its
latest wearable tech to allow organizations to empower people to manage their own risk and
exposure to the COVID virus, through wearable technology in the form of a wristband or
lanyard that connects wirelessly to Prolojik’s Proxima sensor network.
“At a time when businesses and educational institutions need as much support as possible to be operational, Proxima wearables provide the ultimate reassurance and comfort for employee and students,” explains Asela Rodrigo, Managing Director of Prolojik. “The unique difference is the stand alone sensor infrastructure which can equally be fully integrated with any lighting control systems to increases the measurable and trackable area.”
The movement and temperature of each wearer can be monitored throughout all areas within the space, vibrating when people are within two metres of each other, as well as taking their temperature to alert them of potential illness.
Data collected via the Proxima sensor network can be stored on premises for real time analysis or shared with third party systems such as BMS. For example, if someone contracts COVID within an organization, it is possible to track that person interactions in the preceding days, identify others that have been in close proximity to them, therefore exposed to the virus and potentially at risk.
The enormous benefit is that Facility and Building Operators can focus on specific areas, rather than having to close entire buildings down. As with education, this approach allows for a far more targeted approach to infection management, by isolating individuals or specific social bubbles.
The integration with the lighting control system means that all areas of the building are within the trackable zone, including workspaces, circulation areas, back-of-house, plant rooms, car parks, presentation spaces and external spaces.
