1. An environmental conditioning system for conditioning an environment of an occupiable region and configured to communicate with ingress and egress sensing devices, the environmental conditioning system comprising:
environmental conditioning hardware constructed and arranged to condition the environment; and
a controller including an occupancy module configured to receive ingress data from the ingress sensing device associated with occupants entering the occupiable region for each of a first plurality of ingress iterations of a first prescribed time period, perform a first ingress rolling mean of the ingress data over the first plurality of ingress iterations, compare at least the first ingress rolling mean to a first occupancy threshold, and output a start command to the environmental conditioning hardware when the first occupancy threshold is exceeded by the first ingress rolling mean.
