When people walk through the camera, the receiver detects the human face with a screen displaying a total number of people. The counted number will be shown with green or red background indicating different occupancy status.

  • Works with All-in-One software - ZKBioSecurity-MTD

ZKTeco integrates people counting function into ZKBioSecurity-MTD Software to provide an effective way to manage in-store capacity. ZKBioSecurity-MTD is a web-based software, once connected to the network, it is able to check real-time capacity data on the web browser anywhere. Besides, people counting screen can be installed in entrance and exit, to provide an instant capacity at the door to assist staffs to decide if people can still access to the secured area.

  • 3 Metres Recognition Distance and Extra-wide Angle Recognition

The visible light facial recognition is way quicker than the previous near-infrared facial recognition, and the recognition distance has been greatly extended up to 3 meters long, which significantly improves the maximum traffic rate.

While most of the algorithms only support 15-degree angle facial recognition, ZKTeco’s access control and counting system support 30-degree angle facial recognition.
