PD29 Presence Detection Monitor

The PD29 is an all-in-one sound, light and motion sensing monitor designed specifically for occupancy detection. It is a combination of three separate sensors that detects Sound Level in dBA, Light Level in Lux and PIR motion. The PD29 can be used in conjunction with other products from NuWave and from the AirSentric™️ range including combining air quality monitoring with occupancy based monitoring for demand controlled ventilation applications. The PD29 sensor data can be monitored online using NuWave’s HEX software platform and API.


• Sound Level in dBA

• Light Level in Lux

• Motion Level using PIR sensor

• Air quality sensors can be integrated depending on customer requirements


PD29 Features



NuWave’s Remote Monitoring System

You can monitor your connected PD29 sensor online and in real time using a NuWave Sensors cloud based ‘HEX’ monitoring account. Set up is quick and easy – connect the data hub to an ethernet point and your sensor will connect wirelessly and send data online. Once connected, data can be analysed online or be downloaded for more detailed analysis as well as linked with existing IT systems.


• Remote monitoring, analysis and alerts

• Plug & Play set up

• No need for additional monitoring software systems

• API available for integration into your software
