The attributes of continuous-valued data are examined in respect to presence systems. The limitations of the existing presence system with respect to continuous-valued data is examined. Requirements are formulated that would enable the use of the presence system for this data, with an emphasis on providing the watcher with a means of control over the measurement process.
