Network Specifications

Occuspace sensors are designed to easily integrate into your existing network through a WiFi or Ethernet connection

WiFi Network Connection Requirements

Our customers frequently supply a WiFi network that our sensors use to connect to the Internet and send data back to Occuspace's cloud infrastructure. The table below outlines the supported WiFi standards and specific requirements of our sensors:
802.11 b/g/n/ac 2.4GHz or 5GHz
Network Type
WPA-PSK, WPA2, WPA2 - Enterprise
Encryption Type Supported
Ports Required Open
80 (HTTP) & 443 (HTTPS)
Additional Requirements
  • Network must be broadcasting a visible SSID
  • No splash pages or button presse requirements to join the network (unless MAC address bypass is possible)

Ethernet Connection Requirements

Our sensors can also connect to the Internet via Ethernet. In this case the following LAN standards and specific requirements of our sensors are:
VLAN connection to public Internet IEEE 802.3 connection (minimum)
IEEE 802.3u (recommended) 10Mbps (minimum) 100Mbps (recommended)
Ethernet Cable
Cat 5 or Cat 6
RJ45 connector, 8-pin, 4 pairs
Ports Required Open
80 (HTTP) & 443 (HTTPS)

Network Setup Best Practices & Recommendations

  • We recommend that our customers whitelist the MAC addresses of each Occuspace sensor in their central network/IT infrastructure
  • We also recommend when possible that customers assign static IP addresses for each Occuspace sensor
