The Wireless Desk Occupancy Sensor uses a combination of temperature measurements and machine learning to determine if a desk is occupied or not based on changes in temperature created by the presence of people sitting at a desk. The result is wirelessly transmitted to nearby Cloud Connectors (gateways) via the SecureDataShot™ protocol. Cloud Connectors relay sensor data into the DT cloud infrastructure for forwarding to other cloud services using Data Connectors or use directly in DT Studio (web application).

See the datasheet for detailed specifications.
1) Based on standard ITU-R P.1238 (indoor) and ITU-R P.525 (free-space).
Detailed installation and planning instructions can be found in the Installation Guideline.
Install the sensor under the desk, approximately 2 to 4 cm from the edge, at the center where a person usually sits.
Clean the installation surface, peel the protective film from the back of the sensor, stick the sensor to the table, and press it firmly for a few seconds to ensure good adhesion.
To increase the wireless range between the sensor and the Cloud Connector, we recommend installing the sensor with a Range Extender accessory.
After the installation, the sensor needs a working day of data from the environment before it accurately determines the occupancy status of the desk.
Installing the sensor on a metal desk will severely impact the wireless range of the sensor. Using the
Range Extender accessory with PN: 101707 can increase the performance when used on metal desks.
Factors that impact measurement accuracy
Unusual heating/cooling patterns or offline periods.
