API for IoT People Counter Integration


A key feature of our EvolvePlus IoT People Counters solution is our IMMOTION software platform where data from our IoT traffic counters and devices are available from a unified dashboard & reporting platform. 

The platform enables organisations to analyse their people counter data using dashboards, reports and charts accessed via web browsers on desktops, tablets or smartphones. Users can filter by specific locations, positions, sensor and date/time periods ( hour, day, week, month, and year).

We also recognise the need for organisations to incorporate their people counter data into their Business Intelligence apps - so we make it easy for organisations to connect to the data platform using a range of APIs for your authorised BI apps to read the footfall data and incorporate in a combined dashboard. For example: Hourly People Count vs Sales, Hourly People Count vs Staff Rostering, etc.

Integrating with People Counter Data


Our modular People Counter solution makes it easy to integrate the footfall data with other information systems that your organisation may be using - ranging from Sales & Finance systems through to BACnet Building Automation and Control Systems.

Two popular methods for integrating the EvolvePlus People Counter solution with other systems include:

People Counter Software Implemented on Linux


Our Wireless Infrared and Overhead Thermal People Counter solutions include the SensorServer software application which allows users to analyse traffic count data by hour, day, week, month, and year in table or graph form simply using their web browser. This valuable information reveals peak traffic periods to determine optimal operating hours and staffing requirements, and helps calculate peak visitor times. The People Inside Web App for SensorServer also enables organisations to view the number of people currently inside a venue, which is ideal for venues that are required to monitor capacity numbers in real time to comply with liquor licensing laws, venue capacity limits, etc.

Up to now the On-Premise edition of SensorServer has been installed on the Windows and macOS operating systems.  We are pleased to announce that we have successfully implemented the SensorServer software for our People Counters on the CentOS Linux platform.

This is ideal for customers who are using Linux as their preferred operating system platform. It also represents a lower operating cost when implementing a dedicated Linux virtual server in AWS or Azure compared to monthly costs of using a Windows virtual server.

Wireless Door Counters with Remote Data


Our battery powered wireless technology offers a reliable, user-friendly and affordable people counter solution. The door counter has 2 parts, a transmitter and receiver, which are positioned across the entry (max 6m) and generate a beam that is broken by people passing through.

The count data is transmitted every 10 seconds to our Sensor Network Gateway (SNG10E) unit that can be located anywhere within a range of up to 30m. Since the Sensor Network Gateway (SNG10E) unit requires an internet connection and a power point it is normally located under a service counter or in a back room. The Sensor Network Gateway (SNG10E) unit stores the count data and forwards it as data packets at regular intervals to our 'SensorServer™' reporting system.

The Sensor Network Gateway (SNG10E) is able to collect the counting data from up to 10 door counters. The Sensor Network Gateway (SNG10E) can be paired to operate with 3G Modem/Routers in remote areas and also able to be powered via POE (Power over Ethernet) devices.
