People counter system can record the data information of the passenger flow in real time dynamically, accurately and continuously. These data information includes both the current passenger flow and the historical passenger flow, as well as the passenger flow data of different time periods and different regions. You can also access the corresponding data according to your own permissions. Combine passenger flow data with sales data and other traditional business data, retailers can analyze and evaluate the operation of daily shopping malls.

4.How do people counters with different technologies work?
Infrared people counters:
It work by IR (infrared rays) beam and will count if any opaque objects cut the beam. If two or more persons pass shoulder by shoulder, they will be counted as one person, which is same for all the infrared people counters in the market, not just for us. If you want much higher accuracy data, this one is not suggested.
However, our infrared people counters has been upgraded. If two persons enter with a small distance about 3-5cm, they will be counted as two persons separately.
2D people counting camera:
It uses a smart camera with analysis function to detect human head and
shoulders, automatically counting people once they pass the area,
and automatically omitting other objects such as shopping carts, personal
belongings, boxes and so on. It can also eliminate the invalid pass by seting a
3D camera people counter:
Adopted with main development dual-camera depth algorithm model, it conducts
dynamic detection on cross-section, height and movement trajectory of the
human target, and in turn, obtains comparatively high-precision real-time people
AI camera counter for people/ vehicles:
AI counter system has a built-in AI processing chip, uses AI algorithm to recognize humanoid or human head, and supports target detection in any horizontal direction.
"Humanoid" is a recognition target based on human body contour. The target is generally suitable for long-distance detection.
"Head" is a recognition target based on human head characteristics, which is generally suitable for close-distance detection.
AI counter can also be used to count vehicles.
5.How to choose the most suitable people counter for our stores?
We have different technologies and types of people counters to meet your requirements, such as infrared people counters, 2D/ 3D people counting cameras, AI people counters and so on.
As for which counter to choose, it depends on many factors, such as the actual installation environment of the store (entrance width, ceiling height, door type, traffic density, network availablity, computer availablity), your budget, accuracy rate requirement, etc.
If your budget is low and you do not need much higher accuracy rate, infrared people counter is recommended with wider detection range and more favorable price.
If you need much higher accuracy rate, 2D/ 3D camera people counters are recommended, but with higher cost and less detection range than infrared people counters.
If you want to install the people counter outdoor, AI people counter is suitable with IP66 waterproof level.
It's hard to say which people counter is the best, because it depends on your requirements. Namely, just choose the people counter that is most suitable for you, not the best and most expensive one.

No matter what type of people counting system it is, the accuracy rate mainly depends on its own technical characteristics.
The accuracy rate of 2D/3D people counting camera is mainly affected by the light of the installation site, people wearing hats, and people's height, the color of the carpet, etc. However, we have upgraded the product and greatly reduced the impact of these distractions.
The accuracy rate of infrared people counter is effected by many factors, such as the strong light or outdoor sunlight, door width, installation height, etc. If the door width is too wide, many people passing shoulder-by shoulder will be counted as one person. If the installation height is too low, the counter will be affected by arms swing, legs. Normally, 1.2m-1.4m installation height is recommended, this position height means from people’s shoulder to head, the counter will not be affected by arms swing or legs.
