What is an Occupancy Counting Sensor?

An Occupancy counting sensor in each piece of hardware that detects and records the occupancy of a certain space.

What Are Occupancy Counting Sensors Used For?

Occupancy counting technology has long been one of the strongest marketing tools available to a retailer. The increased accuracy and ability to drill down reporting into minute increments, all from a cloud based reporting server, is what now makes people counting a necessity for any serious retail or commercial business.

As well as the above, occupancy counting technology has expanded to also inform best practices for space management, which includes energy conservation (this is hyperlinked, which scrolls down to “Innovations in Occupancy Sensors”) .

For premises such as schools and universities (link to below section), it can also inform space management practices, as valuable data is gathered of lecture hall attendance, and other space usage, to inform and potentially save on new building developments.

Occupancy counters can be used for:

Occupancy Sensors for Universities

Space & Facilities Management is a core part of every university or higher education facility. Without proper planning and management of space within a university, it can lead to billions of dollars in wastage. A proper Space Management Solution will:

Proper University Space Management is impossible without occupancy counting sensors. These allow for the implementation of energy saving technology where necessary. These factors will help you save billions over the long run.

Innovations in Occupancy Sensors: Turning Your Premises into a “Smart” Building

Smart buildings are those that leverage technologies to increase the capabilities of, or completely automate, certain aspects of the building itself.

One such technology is infrared detection which provides the ability to measure how a building’s occupants use their environment. Infrared technology is well proven and has been used in many applications from night vision in defence and security systems, planned maintenance in plants, to building energy surveys.

Infrared technology is now being applied to commercial buildings, can be used for:

TPS’ Occupancy Counting Sensor - The VO4 Series

The TPS VO4 Sensor and TPS VO4 Node are people counting sensor devices with the imaging optics, sensor, signal processing and interfacing electronics all contained within a molded plastic housing. The unit is installed on the ceiling in a downward facing direction detecting the heat emitted by people passing underneath as Infra-Red radiation collected through a germanium lens with a 60° field of view.

V03 people counter One of our TPS VO4 IP ‘master’ people counters can be used as a single counting node which can be connected directly to an Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN). Additionally, the IP master people counter sensor can be connected to a number of TPS VO4 Node People Counters to cover a wide entrance. Up to 8 units can be linked together to span the wide opening and these will appear to the user system as a single counter unit with a wide ‘footprint’. Only one IP address is required per people counter unit.

Both data output and counter configuration is handled via the IP connection. This allows true remote configuration and data integration via IP. Firmware upgrades to the counter may also be available periodically which can also be done remotely via IP. Configuration can alternatively be performed via direct serial connection to the master counter using the TPS Accessory serial cable. A serial to USB convertor is also included for other inputs to the people counting sensors

IP Interface Specification: Standard RJ45 sockets are provided on the rear of the unit for structured cable (CAT5) connection. Power can be supplied over the CAT5 with the TPS Power Injector accessory or directly to the power terminals on the people counter unit base. Power over the Ethernet (PoE) now also supported.
