Door Tablet Motion Sensors

Adding Motion Sensors (MOTs) to your Door Tablet installation can further transform how you manage workspaces.

Motion Sensors help to automate the room status change preventing interruptions and ensuring accuracy even if staff do not take the steps to formally book a room.

MOTs placed inside rooms or by workspaces signal to the system that people are entering or using that space. When movement is no longer detected for a certain amount of time, it will signal the space is free.

This information is used for:

  1. Automatic check-in to meetings
  2. Showing that the space is occupied (even if it has not been booked)
  3. Termination of meetings once spaces are unoccupied for a predetermined amount of time as configured by you. Administrators often allow for 15 minutes of inactivity before freeing the room, to allow restroom breaks for users without worrying about losing a booked room

Automatic check-in to meetings

Rather than manually checking into a room by pressing the display or tappingswiping an RFID card, Door Tablet MOTs allow users to simply walk in and start working, while the outside display indicates the room is now in use.

Automatic termination of meetings

If a space is unoccupied for a predetermined amount of time then the meeting/use will be assumed to have ended. The space is released to the system to be booked once again, or if it is a non-bookable space it will be designated as free to be used immediately.

Showing that the space is occupied

By confirming that a space is being used, MOTs can:

  1. Prevent annoying interruptions in non-bookable spaces – people will know the space is being used without having to ask
  2. Stop disturbances to private consultations/meetings - stop privacy intrusions when it is not easy for people outside of a space to know if it is being used e.g. without having to knock on the door or look through a window

Area Sensing

For Door Tablet Enterprise users, Area Sensing allows your motion sensors to show active rooms on Floor Plan displays. In the image below the spaces marked in blue are those where people are in, but the space is not reserved.

MOTs are easy to configure and install, see here for instructions


Installing MOTs into health consulting room ceilings enables the Door Tablet system to signal whether that room is being used or not. This information can then be displayed on Door Tablet screens outside the room and the appropriate privacy messages given, e.g. “In Use - Do Not Disturb” or “In Use - Please Knock Before Entry” etc. Importantly, these messages are always up to date since they are based on a continuous analysis of what is actually happening within the room.

Door Tablet MOT sensor device

Our MOTs are small and discreet and powered by PoE or a USB power source. The MOT’s do not connect physically to any display devices - they communicate instead to the Door Tablet system by ethernet or Wi-Fi. The USB version of our sensors connects to Windows devices directly and are not connected to the network.
