We at Haltian are proud to announce a new addition to our Thingsee IoT family: Thingsee COUNT. Thingsee COUNT is a directional, non-camera based and anonymous real-time IoT people counter with wireless data transmission for smart building and office applications.

How are your spaces used?

The modern workspace needs to offer the best possible working conditions for many different ways of working. At the same time, facility managers and company leaders are searching for ways to optimize office space usage.

To optimize your spaces without sacrificing employee experience, you need to understand how your current spaces are used. Having a convenient and reliable people counting system in place is a vital part of optimizing the space usage of your office.

Real-time information on space utilization and people traffic

To answer the current needs of companies and building facility managers, Haltian has developed a new, directional people counter, Thingsee COUNT. “Getting real-time utilization data is one of the most important features for our smart building customers”, says Haltian CEO Pasi Leipälä. “Thingsee COUNT is a fantastic new addition to our extensive IoT sensor device portfolio. This launch means utilization reporting and visitor counting made easy for smart buildings and smart offices”, he continues. Haltian’s IoT device family includes devices for, e.g., monitoring occupancy, air quality, temperature, leakages, fill levels and more.

With Thingsee COUNT people counter, companies can define the most popular spaces and keep track of their occupancy and usage; determine peak hours; follow footfall and people traffic; determine the impact of layout changes, and prevent overcrowding in popular spaces like cafeterias or public restrooms.

Thingsee COUNT will also help companies plan and execute their return to office policies better as many companies now want to know what the people density is and how many people visit the office. With real-time usage data, companies can also make informed decisions over space needs and office design.

Reliable and safe directional people counter

Thingsee COUNT is a convenient people counter that is secure, cost-effective and reliable. The device is installed above a doorway or other passageway from where it detects movement beneath the device and reports the amount of times movement has been detected as well as its direction.

Thingsee COUNT technology is based on a detection beam, which means that it is GDPR compliant and protects the occupants’ identity, unlike camera or AI based people counting solutions. Thingsee COUNT data can be integrated with any analytics or dashboard applications, such as the Haltian Empathic Building Solution, making it an excellent addition to any smart office installation.

Thingsee COUNT is available immediately for large-scale deployments as part of the Haltian Thingsee IoT solution.
