ZKTeco with our advanced technologies turns it digital for greater convenience, preciseness, and efficiency. ZKTeco integrates computer vision technology with a people counting system, the new generation of the facial recognition system is able to automatically count the number of people on a certain site, once it detects that the number of people counted exceeds the maximum preset value, an alarm will be triggered and the door will be automatically closed to prevent entry to the site to effectively control crowd and traffic. 

People Flow and Line Management

Cost-Saving Development

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.), the cost is greatly saved by just installing one access control terminal to count people entering a particular area, hence which saves money meanwhile maximizing convenience, efficiency, and security.

Traffic Flow Monitoring

People flow has always been a challenge to staff in holiday and sale promotion. ZKTeco People Counting System ensures that a particular area is not overcrowded, as it automatically counts everyone entering a specific area, with a display of the exact number of people walking through the door, which is significantly useful to staff to monitor traffic flow compared with the old manual people counting method.

Various People Counting Decisions

ZKTeco has a scalable and flexible access control system that can be integrated with the entrance control system in entrances of the 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.

High Security

Overcrowding in a closed space can cause severe danger, ZKTeco’s people counting system offers a monitoring function to grant access without charging any extra security cost. When the traffic rate exceeds the maximum level, the door will be locked to make sure the business is 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.

People Counting Solution

ZKTeco provides an efficient way to control human traffic 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 designed for retailers, entrainments venues, shopping centers, retail chains, museum restaurants, 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.

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 a human face with a screen displaying the 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 makes our system very versatile. Once the people enter the specific area and face the camera, they will be counted with a screen displaying the total number of people.

Works with All-in-One software ZKBioSecurity-TMD

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

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

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

3 meters Recognition Distance and Extra-Wide Angle 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 the maximum traffic rate.


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

Global Linkage

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

An alarm sensor device and magnetic door sensor can be connected to the alarm input ports. With the people reach the maximum level of capacity, the linkage will be activated, the door sensor can trigger the status of the front door and the alarm will sound if the device is set off.

E-mail Notification

Email notification allows the system to automatically send out an email to notify administrators once the people reach their 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 seconds.
