Occupancy control in staff canteens is now very easy.

Controlling entry into a canteen or a meeting room, or any other area in an office or building, is now very easy.

Designed for accuracy and fast implementation, the SureCount® Automatic Occupancy Control system helps businesses comply with social distancing and occupancy guidelines by anonymously counting people as they enter and exit any enclosed space in their premises.

People counting data accuracy is critical when measuring occupancy as this minimizes error build-up:


At 95% and 98% accuracy in people counting, the table above shows how large errors can rapidly accumulate as people are not detected entering or exiting the defined area. In a high footfall location with 2,500 daily visitors, even 99% accuracy is not good enough. As the day goes on, the live occupancy count could be out by as much as 25 people!

In a small building or area, the maximum occupancy under current government guidance and legislation could be less than 25 people. This means your live occupancy count could be preventing people from entering when it is safe to do so, OR, even worse, it could be allowing double the amount of people in than is safe to do so.

When measuring occupancy for our SureCount AOC solution, we use a highly accurate people counting device. This sensor has a proven accuracy in excess of 99.5% meaning that the potential for error build-up is extremely low, even when dealing with large volumes of people.

The SureCount AOC system detects and delivers live occupancy data with visual warnings and alerts when limits are approached or exceeded. Just set the number of people allowed at a time and the SureCount AOC system does the rest.

The easy-to-read display makes it simple for users to see whether they can enter or not. Once the desired number is reached, entry can be denied until the requisite number of people exit and the SureCount AOC system shows it is safe to enter once again.

SureCount AOC works independently of existing IT networks and is designed for simple setup and fast installation.
