An essential element in creating a COVID-secure environment for your staff and customers is to limit the number of people inside the building at any one time to ensure that social distancing may be maintained.
Many retail outlets have managed “people counting” by having staff on the entrance and exit points. This approach to retail people counting can be resource-intensive but essential to maintaining social distancing.
Custom Fire and Security intelligent technology applications can supply and install customer counting sensors and COVID-19 occupancy systems that uses sensor technology to count people entering and leaving a building and utilises a traffic light system to manage retail people counting.
These systems can be fitted onto all entrance and exits to a building and can be linked to control barriers or gates. Control software provides data to help manage customer flow and ensure the environment can provide enough space for social distancing.
