AP Motion Sensor

To view an AP 8132 model access point‘s deployment area motion activity:

  1. Select the Statistics menu from the Web UI.
  2. Expand the System node from the navigation pane (on the left-hand side of the screen). The System node expands to display the RF Domains created within the managed network.
  3. Expand an RF Domain node, and select one of it's connected access points. The access point's statistics menu displays in the right-hand side of the screen, with the Health tab selected by default.
  4. Expand the Environment menu.
  5. Select the Motion tab.
    The Statistics > AP 8132 > Environment > Motion tab displays.
    Click to expand in new window
  6. Refer to the Motion table to assess the sensor's detected movement within the AP 8132‘s immediate deployment area.

    Motion is measured in intervals. The table displays the Current Motion (count per interval) and the 20 Minute Average Motion (count per interval). Compare these two items to determine whether the AP 8132‘s deployment location remains consistently occupied by client users.

  7. Refer to the Motion Trend Over Last Hour graph to assess the fluctuation in user movement over the last hour. Use this graph in combination with the Light and Temperature graphs (in particular) to assess the deployment area‘s activity level.
  8. Refer to the Motion Trend Over Last Day graph to assess whether deployment area user movement is consistent across specific hours of the day. Use this information to help determine whether the AP 8132 can be upgraded or powered off during specific hours of the day.
  9. Select Refresh at any time to update the screen‘s statistics counters to their latest values.
