What is Wi-Fi Sensing

Wi-Fi sensing is the detection of motion, presence and activity patterns through disruptions in Wi-Fi signals. Wi-Fi sensing technology measures the extent to which living objects distort the signals or waves emitted from transmitters to receivers.

nami modules collect, process and analyse Channel State Information (CSI) data 30+ times per second to sense activity in the environment.

Understanding Wifi Sensing

How does nami compare to other tech? 

For years, homes and buildings have been fitted with technology that can sense motion. However, as you can see from the image below, they are no match for nami’s Wi-Fi sensing. 

  • PIR sensors use infra-red technology to recognize movement based on body temperature. While affordable, these sensors can be difficult to deploy, have limited coverage, fail to accurately distinguish humans and pets, and do not integrate well with other tech.
  • Radar is a more costly option for smart buildings.
  • Indoor cameras are a privacy risk due to their personal identification of individuals. They are also ‘line of sight’ only, and therefore vulnerable to blindspots.

Benefits for Internet Service Providers

Easy to deploy

Has wide coverage — it ‘sees’ through walls and objects with minimum # of nodes.

Has deep granularity — it can distinguish humans from pets and other minor movements.


Is interoperable with most existing IoT applications.


Protects the privacy of the users - no cameras & microphones


Enable recurring revenue opportunities for ISPs
