Occupancy Estimator Technology during COVID-19


By Data Installations & Supplies ltd

Knowing how many people are in one place, at any time is becoming an increasing demand due to the outbreak of COVID-19. With social distancing measures in place and limited access to the local supermarket including other retail locations; The Occupancy Estimator Technology gives you real-time data on how many people are in any area, at any time.

Occupancy levels aside, this solution also helps you understand visitor flow and how space is used, with detailed analytics, heat maps and more.

We’re going to show you how this nifty piece of kit can really help control occupancy levels right now during the global pandemic but can also benefit and grow the business going forward too.

What is an Occupancy Estimator?

The Occupancy Estimator Technology makes your life easier by tracking how many people are present in a building or area, at any time of the day, so you don’t have to. Not only does it analyse individual sites and compare performance across multiple locations. It even lets you access real-time people counting data as the application can be remotely configured, managed and monitored.

This intelligent technology can track the number of people coming in or going out of a building from as many exits/ entrances as you like. Perfect for supermarkets, shopping centres, convention centres and even places like entertainment venues. 

With the information that has been collected, you can use the research to help improve the space. For example, the occupancy estimator shows you the flow of people within an area, including areas that don’t get used. For some businesses, this could give a good indication of revenue opportunity, improve staff planning and determine optimal opening hours. 

To benefit you today, this could minimise the risk of spreading Coronavirus as the Occupancy Estimator lets you know if too many people are the building. You can even use it to inform potential visitors about peak visitor times or when you are at full capacity if you really wanted to. It’s that good.

How does the Occupancy Estimator Technology work? 

Based on a combination of intelligent technologies, the occupancy estimator solution is a mixture of network cameras and applications, that work together to give you real-time information. 

Data is collected from each camera and stored for up to 90 days, reducing bandwidth and eliminating the need for expensive servers. 

The Occupancy Estimator application runs through the network cameras and together they automatically count in real-time the number of people passing under the camera and in what direction.

We can also supply a broad solution offering for Store Optimisation, based on a combination of network cameras, network audio solutions, video analytics and reporting tools. Speak to a member of our team today or request a quote, to find out more.

What is the Occupancy Estimator used for?

This technology works best in a building space, any room or enclosed area. Here at DIS, we are implementing this technology in warehousing and production environments. It’s becoming very popular particularly in the food production and retail warehouses as they are finding it to be very successful.

Also, ideal for supermarkets, entertainment venues, convention centres, high street retail shops and shopping centres. 

For transportation centres and healthcare centres, it is a great way to measure demand and could be a really important feature for service planning.
