Single-camera people count monitors.

This article explains the process of setting up a single-camera people count monitor. Multiple-camera people count monitors can also be created. Please see our separate article for information on this.

If you want to know the total count of people who have come into your site, or a particular space on your site, you can use a people count monitor.

The counting is bi-directional so you can report on individual or combined traffic directions.

People count monitors can be used to view pedestrian flow into, or passing by, your venue. They can also be used to notify team members each time certain traffic thresholds are met, such as notifying a cleaning team after every 200 uses of the bathroom.
