Focus Family

Active infrared presence sensor


BEA’s Focus family consists of infrared-based presence sensors designed to effectively detect people and objects. These compact sensors can be used in a variety of applications where space may be limited or additional detection is required to complement pre-installed sensors, such as on revolving doors where pinch-zone protection is needed.

The Focus 2 offers the same protection as the Focus but can be recessed into a ceiling. The Smart Focus provides internal and external self-monitoring. Single button setup ensure easy installation in most common applications.

The Focus family can be used on revolving doors, drive-thru windows, and in industrial applications such gate and access control.


Low profile detection

Low profile, recessed-mount enables Focus 2 and Smart Focus to eliminate contact with the moving door

Monitoring capable

Smart Focus is fully monitored (not the Focus or Focus 2)

Perfect for activation of small windows/pass-thru

Ideal for drive-thru / pass-thru applications

Ideal for gate and barriers

Can be used in gate and barrier applications
