The Video People Counter combines the effectiveness of an overhead camera with the intelligence of a counter unit to provide an innovative approach to tracking people entering and exiting a pathway. The system uses an extensive algorithm to distinguish a person walking through a gate versus a cart or other object. In addition, the system can detect with great accuracy the number of people walking in different directions.

The system is simple to install and requires a single power source for the entire package. All of the needed equipment is supplied in the kit. The system is ideal for applications where door counters are subject to unintentional contact and allowing the system to be out of alignment. In addition, the area of counting can be increased or decreased by adjusting the height of the installation. The unit has a distinctive chime to indicate movement in one direction or the other. As an additional feature, the system has a video output that will connect using a standard video cable.
