CAPACITY CONTROL, RETAIL SECURITY
Nowadays, capacity control has become a first order necessity. Any commercial space is susceptible to crowds and must be controlled both for the peace of mind of the users who move around in these spaces and for the safety produced for the enclosure staff.
The capacity control cameras are placed above the store entrances, and from there in a synchronous fashion, they count each person who enters the interior, subtracting those who leave. These devices send information to the screens placed on the outside, which indicate whether it is possible to enter or not according to the influx that has been recorded so far and considering the capacity limitation determined.
In addition, real-time information on mobile devices is available to security personnel. In case of having several establishments, the real capacity of all of them can be centralised on a single screen.
The user clearly understands whether or not he/she is allowed to enter or not with a traffic light that appears on the screen: green, when the capacity is still less than that established in the event area and red when at full capacity and, therefore, he/she must wait to be able to enter. In addition, it emits an acoustic signal if someone enters when the enclosure is at full capacity.
In turn, it provides precise information on the number of people inside at that time and the number of people needed until the maximum permitted capacity is reached.
The CarttecLAB Capacity Control system provides very useful information to the operation manager as it generates statistics of traffic flow per entrance and exit access with its hourly reference, being able to compare this data with other external variables.
