People counting is vital for resource planning, optimisation, analysis and forecasting

According to ‘Markets and Markets’, the global people counting market will grow to $1.3 Billion by 2025.
‘Grand View Research’ predict that edge computing will have a global compound annual growth rate of 38.4% from 2021 to 2028.
Knowing how many people come and go and what they look at plays a big part in the success of physical venues and stores.

Why the edge?

The edge can be defined as processing hardware that's close to or at the source of the data capture instead of far away.

The advantages of such a set-up include the hardware cost savings, speed of data transfer, increased data security and easier data protection compliance from on-premises vs the cloud.

Facit's Smart Count on Axis Cameras:

Easy & fast set up

The architecture of the cameras and Facit's software enables easy set up and connection to multiple cameras. Save time, increase efficiencies.

View results across PC, tablet, phone

The cameras do the processing for the people counting and a PC, tablet or phone is just needed to see the results via a url.

No additional hardware costs

No need to buy additional hardware. The architecture of the cameras and Facit’s software means cameras can connect over the network and Facit’s Smart Count and Smart Reporting is able to run on the cameras themselves.


Facit's Smart Count software enables very accurate people counting even on a perspective view with people far away.

Business Intelligence

Gain valuable insight into how marketing affects visitor numbers, seasonal changes, capacity, safety, security, sales forecasts or staff scheduling.

Connect cameras across locations

Cameras across multiple separate store locations can also be configured to collect data and feed it to a central computer for data aggregation and reporting across multiple locations.

API Integration

API integration is also possible with Facit's Smart Count software.


With processing on the cameras it means increased network security and easier data protection compliance from on-premises vs the cloud.
