Micro Display People Counter

A micro display (LCD) people counter is a device to count the number of people passing through a particular area or doorway. It typically consists of a small display unit integrated with sensors that can detect the presence of individuals.

Here's a general overview of how a micro display (LCD) people counter works:

1. Detection: The system uses sensors on either side to detect people passing through a designated area.

2. Data Processing: The sensor data is processed to analyse the presence and movement of individuals.

3. Counting: As people are detected, the system increments a counter to keep track of the number of individuals passing through. This count is displayed on a small micro display unit, which is integrated into the device.

Indoor Air Quality Sensors for Workplace Health

Indoor air quality (IAQ) sensors have become increasingly popular, especially in office buildings where air quality can have a significant impact on employee well-being and health. The EvolvePlus indoor air quality sensors can provide real-time monitoring of indoor air quality and help employers create a healthier workplace.

By monitoring CO2 (carbon dioxide), humidity and temperature, the EvolvePlus indoor air quality sensors can help identify potential sources of poor air quality and allow building managers to take corrective action. For example, if carbon dioxide levels are high, it may indicate a lack of ventilation in the office, and improving air circulation or opening windows can improve air quality.

Our IAQ sensors can also help create a healthier and more productive workplace. Studies have shown that improving air quality can lead to higher staff satisfaction, reduced sick leave, and increased productivity. In addition, the EvolvePlus indoor air quality sensors can help employers comply with regulations and certifications related to indoor air quality, such as the WELL Building Standard.

EvolvePlus IAQ sensors are available in AC and battery-powered models, easy to install and automatically transmit data via a wireless LoRaWAN gateway to the EvolvePlus Cloud Dashboard for detailed analysis and reporting.

Contact EvolvePlus for more information and to learn how we can help your organisation with air quality measuring and other IoT LoRaWAN requirements.

People Counters for Optimising Facility Cleaning

Maintaining clean public toilets and other building facilities is essential for ensuring the health and safety for visitors. EvolvePlus people counters can help facility managers and cleaning contractors identify which restrooms require more attention than others.

By monitoring each bathroom's foot traffic and usage patterns, facility managers can identify which restrooms are used more frequently and require more frequent cleaning. This information can be used to allocate resources more effectively and ensure that the most heavily used restrooms receive the attention they need. The data collected by the EvolvePlus people counters can be used for strategic planning and decision-making, such as identifying trends and patterns in usage, assessing the impact of cleaning schedules, and forecasting future demand.

The EvolvePlus people counters can also help cleaning staff allocate their time and resources more efficiently. By tracking the number of people entering and exiting a toilet facility, the cleaning team can prioritise their tasks based on usage patterns. The EvolvePlus Cloud Dashboard can show that a bathroom is frequently used for short periods of time, so it may be more effective to clean the restroom more frequently but for shorter periods of time. This ensures that the bathroom is always clean and available for use, while minimising the amount of time and effort required to clean it. The EvolvePlus Dashboard can also be used to allocate resources more effectively and ensure that the most heavily used restrooms receive the attention they need.

Privacy is also important for organisations implementing the EvolvePlus people counters to ensure they remain compliant with the relevant GDPR and New Zealand data privacy regulations. Our horizontal wireless and overhead infrared models are ideal solutions to provide anonymous traffic monitoring without using cameras or capturing personal data.

'Footfall' - What is it?

‘Footfall’ is a time-series statistic that is used to measure the number of people is received within in a specific location and a given timeframe.

Aggregated footfall data is used to compare the popularity of each point of installation; historical data can be gathered and stored over time and can be used to monitor an increase or decrease in visitors.

Footfall counters are automatic, sensing technology-based approaches for quantifying footfall statistics. This technology is also often referred to as ‘pedestrian counters’ or ‘people counters’.

Businesses and Retailers measure footfall for a variety of reasons: to gain valuable analytics and key performance indicators, to improve the visitor experience, to save money, to see current occupancy and to optimise operations.

Community agencies use footfall to measure attendance as a foundation for budgeting, staffing, and service requests while combatting increasing financial pressures.
