Our Overhead Thermal People Counter fits discreetly onto the ceiling facing downwards and counts the people that pass underneath using thermal technology. The sensor is designed to detect the heat emitted by people passing underneath it as infrared radiation.
The units contain imaging optics, sensors, signal processing and interfacing electronics all within a discretely designed moulded housing. High-performance algorithms allow you to count people accurately even in high-volume areas.
The Overhead Thermal People Counters have two count lines allowing separate counting for both "In" and 'Out" directions. The integrated Sensor Network Gateway (Ethernet or 3G) provides the wireless capture of the counting data from one or multiple counters and uploads it to a local or remote server every minute.
For wide opening configurations you can implement additional overhead "nodes" to provide a counting coverage over an extended area.
Our unique SensorServer software allows users to analyse the data by hour, day, week, month, and year in table or graph form. This valuable information reveals peak traffic periods to determine optimal operating hours and staffing requirements, and helps calculate customer/sales conversion ratios.
Overhead Thermal Sensor
Overhead Thermal Sensor
Our Overhead Thermal Sensor is a ceiling mounted device designed specifically to count multiple people in both directions. It uses a heat-sensitive sensor and a high speed signal processing controller all neatly contained within a moulded plastic housing for easy mounting to the ceiling.
The downward looking configuration allows the thermal sensor to record a count by detecting the heat emitted by people passing underneath within the sensing area. The sensing area of the detector is a square on the floor and the width approximately equal to mounting height (e.g. when mounted at 3.5m a 60˚ unit ‘sees’ a 3.25 x 3.25m square on the floor).
For wide locations, a number of sensors can be joined together to increase the zone span.
The captured people count data is automatically relayed wirelessly from Overhead Thermal Sensor to the Ethernet Network Gateway device (SNG10E) or 3G Gateway device (SNG103G)
This particular model PCM30C1 has a mounting height of 2.2m to 4.8m. (Optional model PCM31C1 with a mounting height of 4.0m to 7.0m is also available)
Sensor Network Gateway
Sensor Network Gateway
The Sensor Network Gateway (SNG) wirelessly communicates with the people counting sensors to receive the latest, up to date, count data from one or more entrances within a 30 metre radius. Once received, the count data is automatically sent at regular intervals to the SensorServer™ software where the count data can be viewed/exported by hour/day/week/month year totals.
The Sensor Network Gateway is available in two editions:
Ethernet (SNG10E) Edition
The Ethernet edition (SNG10E) is designed to connect directly into your local network via an Ethernet cable. The SNG10E is ideal for situations where there are Ethernet ports available within a 30 metre range of the entrance where the doorway sensors are installed. This device is able to collect count data from up to 10 door counters/entrances within a 30 metre radius.
3G (SNG3G) Edition
The 3G Edition (SNG3G) utilises a cellular 3G connection to communicate through to the SensorServer™ software. The SNG3G is ideal for situations where there is no Ethernet ports available near the people counting sensors. This device is able to collect count data from up to 10 door counters/entrances within a 30 metre radius. The SNG3G requires a full size 3G SIM (not included) and has been tested with the Telstra 3G Mobile Data SIM - please contact us if you would like us to test with an alternative Australian 3G carrier.
Our SensorServer™ software allows users to analyse count data by hour, day, week, month, and year in table or graph form. This valuable information reveals peak traffic periods to determine optimal operating hours and staffing requirements, and helps calculate customer/sales conversion ratios.
The SensorServer™ software/database is optimised to handle multiple locations and/or people counters for easy viewing and overall analysis. The SensorServer™ software/database is scalable so that additional Sensor Network Gateway's (SNG) and/or door counters can be added at any time.
Wireless Range Extender
Range Extender for Wireless People Counters
The Range Extender increases the Wireless Range between a Wireless People Counter (Network) and the Sensor Network Gateway (SNG).
With the Wireless People Counter (Network) solution the Sensor Network Gateway device captures the counting data from one or multiple counters and uploads it to a local or remote server every minute. This requires the Sensor Network Gateway to be located anywhere within a range of up to 30 metres (unobstructed) from the Wireless People Counter. Implementing the Range Extender effectively increases the range between the Sensor Network Gateway device and a single Wireless People Counter by up to a further 30 metre range.
The Range Extender has been designed for ease of installation: when a SNG device is found the LEDs display the signal strength of the detected device. We recommend the Range Extender is installed in a high position to improve the wireless signal via line of sight.
Number of people in a venue at any one time
Our people counters record the number of people entering and exiting a venue in real time. From this information, we can then calculate and display the total number of people in the venue at any one time. This feature is ideal for venues that are required to monitor capacity numbers in real time to comply with liquor licensing laws, venue capacity limits, etc.
The live count total is displayed on a custom styled web page that is compatible with any web-enabled PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
The live count total constantly updates higher or lower depending on the number of people entering or leaving the venue. In addition, a separate 'IN' and 'OUT' count total is collected and can be viewed in an hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly breakdown.
As our people counters only count and do not identify people, the privacy of people passing through our counters is assured.
