Wireless desk occupancy sensors

Our desk occupancy sensors accurately detect when a desk is utilised and monitor ongoing occupancy. No cameras.

Our wireless desk occupancy sensors accurately detect and monitor passive infrared radiation (PIR) emitted by a person sitting at a desk. When a person enters the sensor’s field of view, the sensor detects motion and tells you someone is present within that space, without detecting people in the surrounding areas.


Get instant desk occupancy updates

The small, discreet sensors simply stick to the underside of the desk and send an instant update when someone sits at a desk. You can configure ongoing occupancy updates every 10 minutes to 5 hours to maximise battery life.


Accurate, reliable desk utilisation monitoring

With a narrow-angle, 180 degree radius PIR motion sensor, our desk sensors only pick up people at the desk, not people walking past or at other desks.


Access near real-time data locally or in the cloud

Desk occupancy data can be sent securely to a local network or the cloud — via Ethernet, LTE (4G) or WiFi — using Pressac’s smart gateway.

  • Detection range within 0.5 meters based on typical desk height
  • Sends instant updates when occupancy is detected
  • The sensor continues to monitor the workspace and send you regular updates on whether it’s occupied or not. Status updates can be configured between 10 minutes and 5 hours
  • They can be configured to allow for short ‘absences’ from the desk
  • GDPR and privacy-compliant solution: no images or personal information stored or transmitted
  • Ultra-low-power technology. Battery life typically 5+ years.
  • Transmit data wirelessly and securely – using AES-128 encryption – via EnOcean wireless protocol, which uses internationally approved, licence-free ISM bands
    • 868 MHz for Europe (RED)
    • 902 MHz for North America (FCC) and Canada (IC)
  • EnOcean Equipment Profile (EEP): A5-07-01
  • No recurring fees. Access the data through your chosen platform, without any additional costs from Pressac
  • Manufactured in the UK to high-quality and high-safety specifications, they are subject to rigorous testing procedures
  • Dimensions: 93 x 65 x 28 mm (approx)
