A people traffic counter solution for less than $500





The Micro LCD Screen People Counter with its dimensions of only 85x53x16mm is one of the smallest people counters available anywhere in the world today. Whether it’s used to help a retail store determine their sales conversion ratio or a library keep track of their visitor count, the Micro LCD Screen People Counter will help almost any type of business operate more efficiently.

The incredibly small size of the Micro Display People Counter makes it easy to mount to virtually any wall or door frame of up to 5 metres wide. The low power usage of the counters ensure that the single battery only has to be replaced once a year.

The People Counter sensor has a side fire beam which means it will be installed flat on the wall or door frame using the double-sided high quality foam tape (supplied). The display can be read easily and counts reset to zero via a special tool which is provided. The display orientation can be modified so that the counter can be fixed to either side of the doorway.

This Counter can be setup in minutes and there are no ongoing maintenance/support costs. The maximum display count value is 999999 (6 digits)

Wireless Door Counters with Remote Data


Our battery powered wireless technology offers a reliable, user-friendly and affordable people counter solution. The door counter has 2 parts, a transmitter and receiver, which are positioned across the entry (max 6m) and generate a beam that is broken by people passing through.

The count data is transmitted every 10 seconds to our Sensor Network Gateway (SNG10E) unit that can be located anywhere within a range of up to 30m. Since the Sensor Network Gateway (SNG10E) unit requires an internet connection and a power point it is normally located under a service counter or in a back room. The Sensor Network Gateway (SNG10E) unit stores the count data and forwards it as data packets at regular intervals to our 'SensorServer™' reporting system.

The Sensor Network Gateway (SNG10E) is able to collect the counting data from up to 10 door counters. The Sensor Network Gateway (SNG10E) can be paired to operate with 3G Modem/Routers in remote areas and also able to be powered via POE (Power over Ethernet) devices.

EvolvePlus releases SIP2 Support for VuFind

VuFind Patron Renew using SIP2

EvolvePlus has released VuFind SIP2 integration for our LMS drivers - providing a seamless experience for patrons to place holds, cancel holds, renew items all within the VuFind application.

The benefit of incorporating the above patron functionality is libraries no longer need to link from VuFind to their original LMS OPAC for processing reservations and renewals.  We have developed a separate SIP2Gateway web application that provides easier integration across library systems supporting the SIP2 standard without having to incorporate the SIP2 functions for every separate VuFind LMS driver.

For Amlib library customers it means that the VuFind Managed Services offered by EvolvePlus can completely replace the existing NetOpacs and OpenOPAC modules - providing library patrons with an enhanced discovery layer experience with an optimised mobile phone interface, whilst library staff can continue to use Amlib for cataloguing & circulation. Note: Amlib customers will require a valid license for the Amlib SIP2 Manager module to be able take advantage of the VuFind SIP2 connectivity.

VuFind Discovery Layer


Resource discovery systems like VuFind have developed rapidly over the last few years and have now largely established themselves as the industry standard replacing the ‘traditional’ OPACs of the previous systems development cycle. The VuFind discovery system is inspired by internet search engines and social media and provides your library users with a universal search and discovery experience.

With VuFind, you can now realise the previously illusory goal of the unified ‘single search interface’, and at the same time allowing for a personalised and interactive engagement between information seekers on the one hand, and library resources on the other.
