Terabee announces enhanced People Counting technology

Terabee announces enhanced People Counting technology, giving real-time, privacy-protected data for very, very wide entrances and passageways

April 7 2022, Saint Genis-Pouilly, France  French sensor solutions technology company, Terabee, has enhanced the flagship of its people counting range, People Counting L-XL, to enable even wider and higher passageway coverage.

The Smart Building device and solution for occupancy monitoring, facilities management and staff optimization, using Terabee’s unique people counting algorithm, has been improved for even better performance.

“For conference and exhibition centres, schools and universities, hospitality facilities such as hotels and restaurants, retail spaces and large office complexes – any indoor environment that has a particularly wide entrance – reliably tracking the number of people entering and exiting the building, has until now, been a challenge,” says Greg Watts, Marketing & Technical Sales Director, Terabee.

New software enhancements enable up to five devices to be installed at a height of 4 meters, to allow a 15.4 meter wide detection zone. If using a single device mounted at 4 metres height, the Terabee People Counting L-XL device now counts people within a zone that is 3.4 meters wide.

Flexible and scalable

“A flexible and scalable People Counting solution that fits any kind of indoor wide entrance, to support informed business decisions, is therefore critical. Moreover, this wider field of view, at a higher installation height, means that only one device is needed to cover large doors.”

Filtering and counting software is embedded on the device and the solution is easily configured via a web GUI.

Fast and easy to install on high ceilings, People Counting L-XL is suitable for a broad range of applications related to indoor people counting, while preserving Terabee accuracy (98%+), multi-device capabilities and privacy standards.

Privacy and lighting advantages

The devices use advanced Time-of-Flight technology, collecting non-intrusive depth image data, meaning personal identities cannot be captured. This makes the solution GDPR compliant by design. Since the device does not require high levels of ambient light to function, it retains its accuracy even in very low light conditions.

“Terabee People Counting L-XL is ideal for building managers and integrators wishing to measure the footfall at specific locations, using the data to ensure healthy ROI metrics are maintained,” said Greg Watts.

“Terabee works with System Integrators and IoT solution providers in the Smart Building sector enabling them to offer new services and solutions to their existing end clients, whilst unlocking the possibility to scale up data analysis and offer metrics based on counting data,” Greg Watts said.

People counting applications across a variety of sectors

Optimize building spaces and enhance customer experience

The Terabee People Counting L-XL can be used to aggregate occupancy statistics and monitor footfall, for accurate data on busy and unoccupied space, occupancy peaks and people flow in specific rooms, offices or facilities.

Manage real estate expenditure

Monitoring people flow and occupancy in a specific building with the Terabee People Counting L-XL provides clear insight into when people arrive and leave, thus enabling better management of HVAC and lighting, tailored to real-time data and actual people density. When spaces are not being used, there is no need to recycle, refresh or heat the air, or have the lights on, which also means energy efficiency gains.

Understand people traffic 

With its 98% and more accuracy, Terabee People Counting L-XL provides the number of entries and exits throughout the day or selected time period. For public buildings to abide by the recommended occupancy levels, these footfall numbers can be extracted so that security staff have a reliable occupancy metric. The system can also be linked to digital signage to indicate when a building or room’s people density is low enough to accept more people without compromising social distancing regulations.
