Wireless RF People Counter - The Three Easy Steps To Install

EvolvePlus offers an automated wireless people counter solution that is easy to install. The solution combines wireless RF people counter sensors with either our Australian-developed cloud portal or the IMMOTION on-premise software to provide data-driven analysis through dashboards and reports.

We ship the people counters and SNG Hub (sensor network gateway) preconfigured with your counting location settings. Your team can install the sensors and hub by following these 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Install SNG Hub: Unpack the SNG Hub and connect to power and an internet-enabled ethernet port within 20 metres of the proposed counting location. If your network has a firewall, you will need to allow port 5xxxx for data transfer to/from the EvolvePlus cloud or on-premise software.

 

Step 2: Insert Batteries in People Counter Sensors: Unpack the people counter sensors, which consist of a transmitter and receiver, and insert 2 x AA batteries into each. Then, activate and validate the sensors.

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.

Enhancements to People Counter API

The ePortal API for our EvolvePlus Cloud Dashboard delivers footfall data from our Overhead 3D, Wireless and USB people counters in JSON format.

The information delivered via the API provides valuable traffic insights to determine optimal staffing requirements, operating hours, and peak visitor times, with organisations able to utilise the data within their own analytics applications such as Zoho Analytics and Microsoft PowerBI.

Version 1.2 of the ePortal API version 1.2 has been enhanced to support our latest Wireless LoRaWAN people counters (available in horizontal and overhead mounting models). LoRaWAN is a Low Power, Wide Area networking protocol designed to connect battery-operated sensors over long distances.

By incorporating the traffic data into your centralised business intelligence dashboard, you can combine data from multiple sources into a centralised insight, including sales results, financial statements, library statistics, event sales and people traffic counts.

Contact EvolvePlus to learn how to use the EvolvePlus Cloud API to incorporate your people counter data into your business intelligence platforms.

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.

Comparison of Battery-Powered Wireless People Counters

Two models of battery-powered wireless people counters are available from EvolvePlus, with each having advantages for different people counting environments. Each model provides different data transmission methods, whilst both models utilise the same sensor enclosure with horizontal infrared technology. This enables customers to choose the model that best suits their environment.

The Wireless RF (Short Range) People Counter model can transmit count data every few seconds and is ideal for organisations that require self-hosted software or live occupancy displays. This model features indicator lights on the sensors to highlight successful data transmission and low battery.

The Gateway (SNG Hub) for the Wireless RF (Short Range) People Counter model needs located within 20 metres of the people counter sensors and provide connectivity to the network via ethernet. Reporting software for installation on your own PC/server is included, with the option for the EvolvePlus Cloud Dashboard.

The Wireless LoRaWAN (Long Range) People Counter model has a key feature of counting people at both indoor and outdoor entrances that may be located hundreds of metres from the LoRaWAN Gateway, with the data transmitted every 30 minutes for analysis and reporting to the EvolvePlus Cloud Dashboard.

The gateway includes wi-fi, ethernet, and optional 4G network connectivity and is also available with an external long-range antenna. Instead of the EvolvePlus Cloud Dashboard, organisations can also choose to use their own Smart Cities LoRaWAN IoT data platform.

Active Infrared People Counters installed at Melbourne Airport screen point

Modern airports are among the busiest places globally requiring continuous crowd monitoring for security and efficiency purposes. There are many challenges that airports face daily, and high people flow is one of the most critical ones. People traffic counters are useful tools for airports to have, the traffic counting technology allows security managers to make informed decisions on streamlining passenger traffic.

The EvolvePlus Wireless People Counters were recently installed at the security check screen point servicing Terminal 3 and Terminal 4 departures at Melbourne Airport allowing management to make evidence-based decisions. With the ability to compare traffic flow between various periods, management can prepare in advance with additional resources and predict peak travel times.

The EvolvePlus Wireless People Counter Active Infrared / IR beam (also called a ‘break beam’) technology was selected due to the ease of implementation with no significant delays experienced by passengers or detrimental impact to airport operations during installation.

LoRaWAN People Counter

Organisations face the challenge on how to effectively count people and facilities and entrances located hundreds of metres from the nearest mains power source, with data automatically transmitted to a cloud platform for reporting and analysis.

Our LoRaWAN People Counting solution solves this challenge with our battery powered People Counter sensors implemented at remote locations. For example:

  • public toilets
  • parks
  • playgrounds
  • sporting facilities
  • outdoor events
  • footpaths
