Why the edge?

The edge is processing hardware that's close to or at the source of the data capture instead of far away. Fast, accurate, lower costs.

The many advantages of an edge set-up include hardware cost savings, fast data transfer speeds, increased data security and data protection compliance from on-premises operations vs the cloud.

Smart Count Features:

Position, extend & resize the crossing line.
Counts people in and people out to determine occupancy.
Schedule when counting takes place.
