Desk Controller

Sustainability and occupancy data

Kahu’s desk controller is a modular device that makes any desk smart, helps you monitor occupancy accurately and drives sustainability benefits.  

It includes a sensor unit that sits under the desk which detects when someone is using it, and a power control module that can turn the power on and off to the desk. 

Once checked-in, the desk powers up, becoming usable. Unreserved and non-checked-in desks stay powered off, reducing energy consumption and ensuring accurate occupancy data. 

Together these features provide rich and accurate data for powerful and actionable office insights and ensures that wasted energy by unused desks is kept to a minimum.
