Basking leverages the existing building infrastructure to help companies understand how people interact with spaces, where they work and meet across the entire portfolio, without the need for additional hardware sensors or manual counting studies.
Using WIFI as the primary source of data, the Basking software securely connects to the existing wireless network consisting mainly of wifi access points distributed within the space. These access points see the wifi-enabled devices connected to the network or within its vicinity.
The connection enables the network management system to securely and unidirectionally send data to Basking, limited only to the data needed, not more.
Basking automatically starts anonymizing and analyzing the incoming data stream – and after applying a series of algorithms to filter the data and assess the positioning of devices using location triangulation, the software accurately transforms this data into anonymized aggregated statistics on the number of people and their location within the space, in near-real time.
