The Technology

The solution can monitor how many people are within the targeted area and display a real-time count. If the capacity of this area is reached, the system's display indicates that no more people should enter.

In it's most economic form, the solution uses a single IP camera and DSS Express software.

The Dahua IPC-HFW5541E-ZE, one of three supported cameras, is a 5MP Pro AI Vari-focal IR Bullet Network Camera, that supports People Counting as well as other AI tasks.

Dahua's DSS Express is an easy to use and reliable VMS, that provides the GUI showing the current status of the people count plus other management reporting for off-line statistical analysis. Download data sheet.
