We consider the problem of detecting sensor commissioning in the form of determining the sensor layout. We address this problem for single-pixel thermopile sensors, located at the ceiling, that provide remote temperature measurements for people counting applications and HVAC controls. We employ a random forest classifier to determine the deployed layout in an area. For this classifier, we propose spatio-temporal distance features using two-sided cumulative sum recursive least squares (CUSUM RLS) filtering of the thermopile temperature sensor signals. Using sensor data generated with simulated occupancy patterns and a thermopile signal model, we show that the proposed method achieves a true positive rate (determining the correct layout) of 90.2% and false positive rate of 1.3%.
