Video Occupancy Counters for Retail, other Buildings and Transport
5 September 2020
Now more than any time stores and other businesses need accurate counts of the number of people on their premises. Our occupancy counting systems let you monitor different areas within the building, as well as the overall occupancy - helping ensure social distancing. Live totals are shown on LED displays, on secure web browsers and on smart phones. Visual alerts & texts are sent to warn staff when capacity limits are approaching.
- Live occupancy shown locally and remotely
- Occupancy alerts and warnings by text, tweet, smart phone, browser, reporting dashboard, screen, meter & internet of things
- See how many people are in each room, on each floor or in the entire building
- Real-time counts aid compliance with health and safety regulations
- Historical records help future planning
- Queue monitoring
- Networked systems can communicate securely over the internet and the IoT
Video Occupancy Counting
The system comprises overhead IP or CCTV cameras linked to intelligent people counting units (called Video Turnstile). It counts people entering and leaving areas. No-one is identified - all counts are anonymous. Video Turnstile is designed and manufactured on our premises in the UK: we can thus customise any system to your specifications.
The system displays occupancy analytics in a number of ways - on screens or meters, via our cloud-based reporting software, by text and tweet - alerting you when getting near to, or exceeding, the capacity.
A virtual occupancy meter shows people counts via smart phone or computer - just log into the Reporting Dashboard.
An LED display shows the number of occupants and flashes an alert when nearing the maximum. The display meter is mounted on a wall or sits on a desk and updates every second with the current occupancy. The standard meter measures 7 inches (178 mm) or you can choose larger screens.
The system sends texts when occupancy approaches or passes its threshold.
Alerts can also be tweeted.
Analyse Previous Counts
As well as real-time counts, records are kept of previous totals. For example, you can see how many people entered and left each hour or every 5 minutes over the past weeks or months. The historical counts are stored as text, XML or MySQL files: you can either use our dedicated reporting software available via the cloud, or almost any other Windows analysis software, to process the data and compile reports.
Our people counting system is not limited to capacity monitoring. You can also use it to monitor queues - inside or out - and determine which areas of the venue are most popular.
You can be sure that the counts are accurate simply by watching the video - securely over the internet. During configuration, you can stream the video and diagnostic data slowly to accurately calibrate and verify the counts. The occupancy monitoring system is over 98% accurate no matter how bright or dark it is.
Restrict Number of Passengers on Buses
Showing live occupancy figures helps people keep within social distancing rules and recommendations made necessary by COVID-19 whilst using public transport.
