A people counter can be anything from a simple manual counting clicker to the sophisticated automatic counters.These high-tech devices are already in use in many retail stores throughout the world, in supermarkets, universities, airports and more.
Simple beam-break people counters can be placed horizontally and measure the numbers of people wakling past, but these can be very technically limited and lack the accuracy of more advanced systems.
Other people counters, such as infra-red people counters, are placed above the counting area, giving an unobstructed view, for more accurate data collection.
Irisys people counters are some of the most accurate counters available, with an accuracy in excess of 99%.The unique thermal sensors in Irisys sensors mean they can cope with variable lighting conditions, climates and temperatures, both indoors and outdoors.
Irisys sensors are installed all over the world, from Sweden to Dubai, from California to Japan, and achieve market leading reliability, with an average product lifetime of around 20 years, delivering high reliability, high accuracy, low maintenance counting.
Businesses must respond to the needs of their customers, so an objective measure of when their customers need help is a huge bonus to planning workforce scheduling.
Sometimes customers need one to one assistance to make their purchase choices, and for stores with this problem a way of measuring trends and giving an exact number to the volumes of visits to the store means that you can prepare the right number of staff in advance.
You can also use a system like this to schedule maintenance in your customer washrooms, and do so on the basis of actual usage rather than at arbitrary times throughout the day.

Infrared is a type of light with a wavelength that is longer than visible light. It cannot be seen, but it can be detected. We can sense it – as heat. Even objects that we think of as being very cold, such as an ice cube, emit infrared.
Irisys has a range of counters, some of which do emit infrared light.
Our Gazelle range of people counters, and models developed before this, all use a passive infrared array to detect and count people.
However, our newest product, the Vector 4D, uses time-of-flight technology, which does emit infrared light.
