    The needs of our customers are unique and they need more than just controlling the number of visitors in a given place. The CounterGuard’s customized, unique sensors can be tailored to the different needs of the facilities:

    Monitoring and measurement

    Monitoring the actual number of visitors in the facility - you can know exactly which entrance was used by how many customers on a given day. Conversion measurement. By taking into account the utilization of the building, the maintenance tasks and costs can be identified.

    Measurement of promotions, attendance of events by installing temporary measuring points with mobile gate systems. Statistics on the move of the crowd can be set up, so you can see when and how many people arrived to each gates, thus the number of entry staff can be planned efficiently.


    Security system and staff can be optimized based on traffic data. Control of the entering traffic to avoid crowded routes, and recommendation of alternative routes on the basis of utilization. In the case of an official control, you can prove that the current number of visitors in the facility doesn’t exceed the permitted limit.

    Which technology is the most effective?

    CounterGuard vs.

    Laser gates based on discontinuity

  • Laser gates based on discontinuity can easily be circumvented at nightclubs and they can't even provide accurate data in shopping malls, as they can’t handle multiple people passing through the gates at the same time. CounterGuard, by contrast, provides accurate data regardless of the height of the people, even in a crowd, and it can also handle visitors with strollers.

  • Wifi based counters

  • At first, it seems to be a good idea not to determine the number of people but the number of mobile phones. These solutions hold, however, several problems. On the one hand, the mobile phones’ wifi service must be turned on, which, by most users is not a default setting; on the other hand, one person can have more than one mobile, while another person might have none at all. CounterGuard counts in every case accurately, as its algorithm focuses on the shape of persons.

  • Heat detection systems

  • Heat detection systems, the accuracy of which can be over 80%, are also widespread. However, this accuracy might be reduced by many factors. Heat camera solutions, for example, can’t be applied where headroom is less than three meters, they are also sensitive for weather conditions, air curtains and air conditioners. Their field of view is narrow, therefore, a costly field survey is required prior to installation. By contrast, our product has a wider field of view, insensitive for temperature changes, and the type that counts in the infrared range provides accurate data even in poor light conditions.
