ZKTeco's People Counter for crowd control is an optimal choice for businesses which require better people counting performance and turning manual people counting digital. People Counting System integrates access control, facial recognition and video surveillance, to automatically count and control people traffic conveniently, precisely and effectively.

ZKTeco integrates computer vision technology in the new people counting system.The new generation of facial recognition systems can automatically count the number of people in a certain site. Once the access control device detects that the number of people counted exceeds the maximum preset value, an alarm will be triggered and the door will be automatically closed to prevent entry to the site, effectively controlling crowd and traffic.

The people counting function is designed for retail, entrainments venues, shopping centre, retail chain, museum restaurant, as it provides a wide range of useful figures of people traffic.

Our innovative solution, has enabled combined technologies and functions to work with access control, time attendance, elevator control, visitor and video surveillance.

  • Access Control Terminal: Access control terminals identify users applying various biometric credentials. When using facial recognition for authentication, users only need to stand in front of the camera within a 3m distance to obtain access and will be counted at the same time when they enter the particular area.
  • Entrance Control: An entrance control system can also used as a people counter, typically combined with an access control terminal, so people will be counted when they request entry. It is predominantly an optimal application for high-security facilities.
  • Software (ZKBioSecurity-MTD): ZKBioSecurity-MTD is the ultimate “All-in-One” web-based security platform developed by ZKTeco. It contains multiple integrated modules: Access control, Time and Attendance, consumption management, elevator control (online/offline), hotel module, visitor management, parking, guard patrol and video linkage. With its newly added function of people counting, it provides the most advanced solution for whole new user experience.
  • Global Linkage: One of the highlighted functions of the counting function is global linkage. It is able to automate system cross-platform interactive functions and notifications system. There are multiple tiers to the alert process including alarm, email notification and video linkage.
  • Alarm and Door Lock: Alarm sensor device and magnetic door sensor can be connected to the alarm input ports. With the people reach the maximum level of capacity, the linkage will be activated, the door sensor can trigger the status of the front door and the alarm will sound if the devices are set off.
  • Email Notification: Email notification allows the system to automatically send out an email to notify administrators once the people reaches its maximum capacity.
  • Video Linkage: Enables photo capture, video recording and pop-up video to warn administrators, when the monitoring the area is overcrowded, the video recording system is able to capture and save footage before the events occur. Video footage length could be up to 180 seconds.
