Fully automated people counting with the Connfair Entry-Light. Concentrate on your customers - our Entry-Light takes care of the counting. The additional smartphone app provides you with a great overview.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, almost every country has admission restrictions for shops, museums, restaurants and more. Regulations often stipulate that the number of people must be limited based on the sales area.

The Connfair Entry-Light takes over the counting of your customers and visitors fully automatically by means of a built-in light barrier. Thanks to constant synchronization with the Connfair cloud systems, the use of several Entry-Lights is possible without any problems.

The device only requires electricity and can be put directly into operation via plug&play without any construction work. With the optionally available All-Net LTE SIM card you do not even need a network connection.

With the Connfair admin tool and the Counter App you always have a complete overview, perform analytics and adjust configuration, for example if regulations change at short notice.

Your advantages

Immediately usable

The device is delivered pre-configured and can be put into operation within a few minutes - only a power connection is required. If you have not chosen the optional LTE variant, a network connection or WLAN is also required.

One of our experts will be happy to provide you with digital support during installation to ensure a reliable count.

Optionally combinable

You can combine our Entry-Light system as you wish. You can use one Entry-Light as a standalone solution, several Entry-Lights as a complete solution, or a combination of Entry-Lights and Counter Apps.

You are still unsure and would like to test our Entry-Light system first? Install the Counter App now and start right away. There are no additional costs if you buy the Entry-Light system afterwards.

Easy to use

The overall system is designed for a simple, mobile and understandable usage. The used traffic light signalling is familiar to everyone and easy to understand. If somebody still ignores the red traffic light, an acoustic warning signal can be enabled.

On the operator side, simple and speedy commissioning as well as simple and easy-to-understand self-services are available in order to quickly configure the device and make adjustments - without any time-consuming support requests.

Counter App & Admin Tool

With the Counter App available for iOS and Android you always have a complete overview of your occupancy rate, are able to make adjustments and view evaluations at short notice. A manual use of our Entry-Light system per app is already possible while the Entry-Light is still on its way to you.

For each admission ticket you will receive five free users for the Counter App and the admin tool.

This is how the Connfair entry system works

Cloud systems are the core of our entry system. This is where all the data from the Entry-Lights, the apps and the admin tool converge and are evaluated. Third-party systems can be connected via interfaces (public APIs) and, for example, the current capacity utilization of a market can be displayed on a homepage.

The browser-based admin tool is used to manage the user accounts and configure the locations. Additional users and locations can easily be created in the self-service. In addition to the configurations, the Entry-Lights can be managed and statistical analyses can be viewed.

The actual people counting takes place either fully automatically through light barrier of the Entry-Lights or manually via app. The correct capacity utilization is always calculated thanks to the merged data in the background.


How fast can the system be used?

The system is ready for immediate use and can be easily put into operation via plug&play. If the variant with WIFI or network connection has been selected, an internet connection is required.

While the Entry-Light is on its way to you, you can already start counting people reliably with the Counter App and get to know the system. As soon as the Entry-Light is set up, the digital assistant takes over. 

What is the purpose of the admin tool?

The admin tool is the central web interface to manage and configure your location, users and devices. There, you always have an overview of your location, can create new locations and have an overview of the current occupancy rate. Further functions are:

  • Monitoring of all Entry-Lights for a location
  • Historic evaluations of all conceived data
  • Adding and deleting of users and their authorizations
  • Adjusting the configuration for your location

The admin tool is constantly being developed and extended with new functions. Features planned for the short term include alerting in the event of a device failure, extended statistics and evaluations as well as various notifications via e-mail or app.

What is required to set up the Entry-Light?

The Entry-Light requires a power connection within a radius of 5m and an internet connection. If the LTE variant has been selected, it is necessary to ensure that network coverage is available (All-Net SIM card), otherwise a network or WIFI connection is required.

To ensure reliable counting it is important to achieve separation during passage. The recommended passage width is 0.80m - 1.20m with the technically maximum possible passage width being 1.50m. Furthermore, the Entry-Light should be placed on solid, not shaky ground. Depending on the application, a fixed installation can increase the counting stability. 

Due to the double-sided sensors, there is a wide range of possible applications. The device can be placed on the left or right side or in the middle. When used in the middle, the detection of people on the left and right side of the device is ensured. The device configuration can be adjusted dynamically without restarting the device.

Our experts are available to answer any questions you may have about the system or its setup.

What happens if the Entry-Light signals red?

The maximum number of allowed people is configured in the admin tool. As soon as the occupancy rate is 100%, the Entry-Light switches to red and the people are informed that the location is fully utilized. In addition, an acoustic warning signal can be activated which sounds if people pass the signal improperly while the Entry-Light signals red.

As soon as enough people have exited the location and the occupancy rate is below 100% again, the traffic light immediately turns green and further people can enter the location.

Can several entrances and exits be synchronized?

Since the Entry-Light does not manage data locally, but synchronizes it with the cloud, multiple devices can work together easily. This means that multiple inputs and outputs can be covered. In addition, the system can be extended by the Counter App if, for example, an additional side entrance is only opened on weekends during peak hours and the purchase of an additional Entry-Light is not worthwhile.

Where can the evaluations be found?

Current evaluations of the occupancy rate and the remaining free capacities can be viewed directly in the Counter App. Additional analyses of historical data are available in the admin tool. This way, the times with the highest number of visitors can be identified and employees can be scheduled accordingly. In addition, the configuration of your locations can also be made in the admin tool and, for example, the number of permitted people can be set.

Can I grant another user a only-read authorization?

The sophisticated authorization system enables a very granular rights management. You determine whether a user has access to all data or can, for example, invite further people. You also define whether the external security personnel can count people while not being able to adjust the configured maximum number for your location. If you need further individual roles, we will be happy to create them for you.
