People Counting digital signage to help monitor venue capacity and maintain social distancing

Safeguard your customers by tracking the number of people entering or exiting your premises. 


NowSignage has collaborated with leading technology partner Philips Professional Display Solutions to provide an effective way to manage in-store capacity during and after the Covid19 crisis. Maintaining social distancing regulations is made simple by displaying real-time capacity data on your digital signage screens in any given location and, with the Android SOC used across Philips digital displays, this solution is immediately available on the full range, including 16/7 to 24/7 usage, as well as videowall and high brightness models with up to 2,500 nits.  


Installing a ‘people counting sensor’ on your entrances and exits will provide an accurate live data stream to help you make informed and decisive decisions. 


By connecting this real-time data to NowSignage and your Philips screen you can then easily control the flow of customers at your entrances and visualise exactly when maximum capacity has been reached. It is even possible to automatically open and close entrances and exits when capacity allows. 


Tom Ross, Commercial Director for NowSignage said, “We are living in some unusual times and it is the responsibility of businesses to regulate flow to ensure the safety of staff and customers. Businesses therefore need to adapt accordingly and, crucially, very quickly.”


“When dealing with safeguarding customers and staff it was therefore vital that we partnered with the right technology partners. When combining the reliability and security of NowSignage and Philips Professional Display Solutions’ Android ‘System on Chip’ screens, we believe we have the most robust solution on the market and are excited to begin rolling it out to many end users over the summer. Whilst retail is the obvious market, it should be noted that this tech can easily be applied to other industries such as real estate, transport, public service, tourism and so on”.


By activating the ‘Capacity Management’ app within your NowSignage account you can add your camera locations, set the capacity limits for each location, customise your dashboards and then apply these real-time people counting dashboards to your digital signage. 


Once set up, you can also export your data as capacity trend reports, providing vital marketing and commercial analysis whilst also meeting your safeguarding obligations to your staff and customers.
