Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, recently launched the updated version of AXIS People Counter. This version now offers a consolidated product with additional functionalities included as features.
AXIS People Counter runs embedded in compatible indoor Axis cameras and provides reliable counting of people in both directions simultaneously so visitor trends can be quickly analysed, and peak visitor times identified. This updated application also offers the opportunity to estimate occupancy levels in real-time and provide instant access to data on the number of people present in the premises or in certain areas at specific times. This information can be used to understand occupancy trends and enable measures to be taken if occupancy levels exceed user-defined thresholds. Additionally, the updated application can detect and send a notification if more than one person enters within a given time interval, or if people move in the wrong direction.
The key features included in the application are optimizing operational efficiency, gaining actionable insights, analysing visitor trends, estimating occupancy levels, and evaluating site performance.
“Axis Communications has always spearheaded the innovation of products and solutions that can cater to the myriad customer needs. Amidst the pandemic, security and surveillance has played a central role in monitoring gatherings and occupancy to ensure adherence to country or region-specific guidelines,” said Sudhindra Holla, Director, Axis Communications, India & SAARC. He added, “We believe the enhancements introduced to the AXIS People Counter will strongly help our customers in identifying valuable visitor insights to aid business operations of all sizes.”
This edge-based application can be remotely configured, managed, and monitored to provide direct access to statistics from all connected cameras. This means multiple sites can be reviewed and compared simultaneously—all from a central location. AXIS People Counter will be offering these additional functionalities at no extra cost.
