People counting sensor solutions

This model contains a small easily installed unit. The solution ideal for passageways, such as paths, stairs, or uphill terrain, where passers-by move in a moderate pace. The sensors register with great precision, all movement in a 2 meter range and up to 10 km per hour. With operating temperature limits of -10 to +65°C, as well as an IP68 certification, you can be sure of your data’s quality. The unit’s installation is quick and easy for the customer with the included installation guide.

data collection

The units register through infrared sensors and transmit the counting every 15th minute, so you can have live data from the units. So, if 10 people pass the sensor in 15 minutes, then you receive the number 10 for that quarter. There is no camera surveillance and therefor no need for GDPR.


The sensors transmit data through the Sigfox network, which cover 99.7% of Denmark. Sigfox is a cloud-based low energy network, which eliminates the need for Wi-Fi or SIM cards. Furthermore, Sigfox is your guarantee for safe data transmission and storage.

Access to Data and functions

Customers get access to HedeDanmark’s own platform, where they can view the data from different periods. The data can be illustrated in graphs and printed, so you can present it based on your needs.
