Covid-19 use case

One use case example is combining Strips Presence for LoRaWAN with +Switch, creating unique use-cases for smart offices. Normal desk occupancy sensors only report occupied or not occupied. Presence +Switch gives it the possibility to have a manual interaction stage with the device, providing information if the desk is “occupied”, “vacant” or “pending”, pending meaning when a person is at a desk, then leaves, the sensor will report the desk is “pending”, not just “empty”. The action that is required for the desk to be available for someone else can, for instance be pending cleaning and disinfection. When the cleaner has disinfected the desk, they can simply slide +Switch on the sensor and the sensor will report that the desk is both available and disinfected.
