Installing the Desk Monitoring Application

The Desk Monitoring Application is a Windows based application that enables automated presence detection of users at a desk location when plugging their computer into a Universal Docking Station.

When a user docks at an Agile desk, Space Connect automatically changes the status of the desk to 'Unavailable', ensuring others are able to view real-time availability of desk space. When a user undocks, the desk is made available again for other users to occupy.
