ZKTeco’s Visible Light People Counting System integrates Access Control, Facial Recognition and Video Surveillance, which automatically counts and controls people traffic conveniently, precisely and effectively. It enables management staffs to effortlessly monitor crowd traffic and control number of people in a certain site,and integrates entrance control, tracking, and instant notification of event and instant view of crowd status. ZKTeco People Counting System, with advanced technologies turning manual people counting digital for greater convenience,preciseness and efficiency, is an optimal choice for businesses which require a better people count performance.

What is People Counting

People Counting is a crucial measure for crowd traffic control for both better safety and user experience. ZKTeco with our advanced technologies turns it digital for greater convenience, preciseness and efficiency.

ZKTeco integrates computer vision technology with people counting system, the new generation of facial recognition system is able to automatically count number of people in a certain site, once it detects that the number of people counted exceeds the maximum preset value, alarm will be triggered and doo r will be automatically closed to prevent entry to the site to effectively control crowd and traffic.

People Flow and Line Management

Cost Saving Deployment People counting solution deploys ZKTeco's standalone access control terminals, which are critical in any door area, as they allow only authorized people to enter. By combining people counting function and multi-verification system (including facial recognition, fingerprint and ID card etc.), cost is greatly saved by just installing one access control terminal to count entering to a particular area, hence which saves money meanwhile maximizing convenience, efficiency and security.

People Flow and Line Management

Various People Counting Decisions ZKTeco has a scalable and flexible access control system that can be integrated with entrance control system in entrances of building. It is enabled to perform traffic track, tracking particular persons' entry and exit or other people counting functions with ZKTeco's flexible people counting system.

It is enabled to perform traffic track, tracking particular persons' entry and exit or other people counting functions with ZKTeco's flexible people counting system. 

High Security Overcrowding in a closed space can cause severe danger, ZKTeco's people counting system offers monitoring function to grant access without charging any extra security cost. When the traffic rate exceed the maximum level, the door will be locked to make sure the business are on a strong security presence. ZKTeco's people counting system also enables global linkage extension to alarm, email and video, letting administration staffs or security staffs know the instant traffic data if there is any emergency action needed. 

ZKTeco provides an efficient way to control human traffc with a facial recognition system to control the maximum occupancy, people and well counted and in case the number of people exceeds the maximum level of the occupancy, alarms/ door lock will be

triggered and therefore disallowing people to access to the particular zone. The people counting function is for retailer, entrainments venues, shopping centre, retail chain, museum 

restaurant, as it provides a wide range of useful figures of people traffic. With our advanced technology, it is now enabled to work with the 

functions of access control, time attendance, elevator control, visitor, video surveillance with its combined technologies.

1)Access Control Terminal

Access control identifies users by various biometric credentials, which include facial recognition function, people only need to stand in front of camera within 3m distance to gain access and will be counted at the same time when they enter the particular area.

2)Entrance Control

Entrance control system is also used as a counter, which is typically combined with access control terminal, so people will be counted when they request entry. It is generally an optimal application in high crime area or high security facilities.

3)Software (ZKBioSecurity-MTD )

ZKBioSecurity-MTD is the ultimate “All-in-One” web based security platform developed by ZKTeco. It contains multiple integrated modules: access control, time & attendance, consumption management, elevator control (online/ofline), hotel module, visitor management, parking, guard patrol and video linkage. With its newly added function of people counting, it provides the most advanced solution for a whole new user experience.

Occupancy Management of Access control

ZKTeco people counter is based on computer vision technology – visible light recognition. When people walk through the camera, the receiver detects human face with a screen displaying total number of people. The counted number will be shown with green or red background indicating different occupancy status.

Counting Function of Access Control

The combination of people counter and facial recognition make our system very versatile. Once the people enter the specific area and face to the camera, they will be counted with screen displaying total number of people


Works with All-in-One software - ZKBioSecurity-MTD

ZKTeco integrates people counting function into ZKBioSecurity-MTD Software to provide an effective way to manage in-store capacity.

ZKBioSecurity-MTD is a web-based software, once connect to the network, it is able to check real-time capacity data on the web browser anywhere.

Besides, people counting screen can be installed in entrance and exit, to provide an instant capacity at the door to assist staffs to decide if people can still access to the secured area.

3 Metres Recognition Distance and Extra-wide Angle Recognition

While most of algorithms only support 15-degree angle facial recognition, ZKTeco's access control and counting system supports 30-degree angle facial recognition.

The visible light facial recognition is way quicker than the previous near infrared facial recognition, and the recognition distance has been greatly extended up to 3 meters long, which significantly improves maximum traffic rate.

One Of the highlighted functions of the counting function is the global linkage. It is able to automate system cross

platform interactive functions and notifications system. There are multiple tiers to the alert process including alarm,

email notification and video linkage.

Alarm and Door Lock

Alarm sensor device and magnetic door sensor can

be connected to the alarm input ports. With the

people reach the maximum level of capacity,

linkage will be activated, door sensor can trigger the

status of the front door and the alarm will sound if

the devices is set off.

Email Notification

Email notification allows system to automatically

send out email to notice administrators once the

people reaches its maximum capacity.

Video Linkage

Enables photo capture, video recording and pop-up

video to warn administrators, when the monitoring

area is overcrowded, the video recording system is

able to capture and save footage before the events

occur. Video footage length could be up to 180
