ESCA Locus

The Officebooking Esca Locus Occupancy sensor measures desk occupancy. The wireless sensor is mounted directly under a desk and can be used for both regular and standing desks.

Esca Locus is battery operated and communicates via LoRa communication standards. The sensor is fully integrated with the Officebooking IOT-Core platform. Our proprietary ESCA firmware technology uses Artificial Intelligence to minimise false positives, based on the context of the user and historic data. Data is transmitted on wake up or during configurable intervals, enabling longer battery life while minimising false positives.

Desk occupancy detection by ESCA smart pir technology. Operates as a stand alone node. Data contains movement threshold and intensity. Status message every 8 hours. Node sends directly after a wake up event, after wake up every 5 minutes until 0 detections. Sensitivity threshold and no detections message scheduling configurable.
