Camio Occupancy Counting puts existing cameras to work counting people for real-time data and alerts.
Businesses and educational institutions ensure safe reopenings by monitoring occupancy levels using existing network cameras. Occupancy insights also enable alerts and monitoring that inform staffing, merchandising, and even tenant decisions. Automatic alerts are triggered when lines are long, waiting rooms are full, or even when gym treadmills are open. Data is stored in Google BigQuery for universal access and integration using standard SQL.
Camio supports two counting methods:
Camio Occupancy Sampling delivers the highest ROI through variable-rate, query-based sampling using the standard field of view of existing cameras — without specialized sensors or overhead mountings. Counting operations are initiated by simple queries like “people west campus courtyards every 5 minutes” for the best price and performance.
Camio Occupancy Sampling works by taking a ‘snapshot’ count at defined intervals.
Virtual turnstiles provide precise positive and negative flow counts with inter-event tracking without storing PII (Personally Identifiable Information). Cameras gain a new sense of depth and understanding by segmenting and tracking people as they move on a 3D floor-plane grid. Events are uploaded to the cloud in real time and available for indexed search within an average of 14 seconds from the time of the event occurring.
Any search query can be turned into an alert triggered when too many people are congregating or when any other criteria are met. Alerts are sent automatically to authorized personnel and can be viewed from any browser on any device.
Dashboards identify trends and compare data to prior periods. Camio also enables custom reporting that can be grouped and summarized by any dimension, including time of day, geography, zone or arbitrary tags. Trendline reports are especially useful to measure rates of change.
Because Camio is software-based, deploying Occupancy Counting is simply a matter of “lighting up” existing cameras. There are no client apps to download, no systems to integrate, and no proprietary apps to purchase. It’s fast and easy to get up and running—like opening a web page in any browser. And usage-based pricing makes it cost-effective.
