Density Control Solution launched by Hikvision

Designed to support supermarkets, retailers, banks and other facilities manage the number of people on their premises at any one time, Hikvision has launched its new Density Control Solution.

Hikvision-DensityControl-20With social distancing an ongoing requirement in public places, Hikvision’s system is said to utilise highly accurate people counting technology, a clear, dynamic display and real-time alerts to ensure pre-defined capacity thresholds are never exceeded, even in locations with multiple entrances and exits. Optional central management software allows users to obtain in-depth Business Intelligence reports for trend analysis.

Gary Harmer, Hikvision UK and Ireland Sales Director, commented: “The Density Control Solution is designed to be simple to use and highly accurate, with options to suit all potential application scenarios. There’s a single door option for smaller establishments and a version incorporating multiple people counting cameras for multiple doors. The Density Control Solution can also be managed across multiple sites using HikCentral management software.

“In all of these scenarios, a clear, very easily understood dynamic data display monitor is sited at each entrance, providing those awaiting entry with real-time updates on the number of people inside. An alert is created when the pre-configured maximum is reached, and an audio alarm can be triggered if anyone attempts to enter before the numbers go below that threshold.”

The solution allows organisations to reduce the number of staff required to be physically present at doors, as the remaining capacity is clearly displayed. Additionally, Hikvision believes the highly accurate nature of the cameras’ people counting functions – utilising 3D binocular stereo vision and Deep Learning algorithms – means potentially complex counts in multi-door sites are no longer an issue.

Alongside the Density Control Solution, Hikvision also offers a Mask Detection Solution, designed to ensure that anyone entering a premise is wearing a face mask if local restrictions dictate that this is required. The Mask Detection Solution can be delivered in a variety of formats depending on user needs: onboard a specialist camera; on a Hikvision DeepinMind NVR for users with existing camera systems; integrated into Hikvision’s Temperature Screening Thermal Solution; or as part of a MinMoe door access unit with built in face detection technology, which can deny entry if a mask is not worn and or an out of range skin surface temperature is detected.
