Case Study: Shopping Mall

In this shopping mall, the same cleaning schedule is applied to all restrooms despite of the variation of restroom usage frequency. After implementing the people counter sensor, the cleaning staff switched to an on-demand cleaning pattern. When the people counter records a fixed number of users, the cleaners receive a notification to perform cleaning. This eliminates unnecessary cleaning in restrooms with lower foot traffic, resulting in a significant overall cost reduction of 30%.

Case Study: Office Environment

In this office, space, an *ATP test conducted on the floor revealed that the daily cleaning, carried out once a day, was excessive as the floor was found to be as clean as that of a sanitised laboratory. To optimise the cleaning process a human, counter sensor was installed to monitor foot traffic, and the cleaning crew is now notified to perform cleaning when the foot traffic reaches 1000. This implementation has led to a notable 40% cost reduction.
