That includes a people counter. In this era where we are struggling to get out of a pandemic, and where we still cannot fill our businesses with the same number of people that we could before, it is essential to have a people counting system that allows us to ensure the health of our customers and employees and avoid fines from the health authorities.

Otter Video offers a video analytics module that allows you to visualize the number of people entering and leaving a business and, in addition, you can indicate at what hours and on which days the highest public traffic is registered. In addition, cameras can distinguish people from objects and backgrounds and compare faces to a database to identify people.

In addition, we also offer native mobile applications for Android and iOS operating systems so that our clients have the functions to view live video and event registration. They too can brand the mobile app with their company colors and logo.

Cloud technology does more than facilitate industry change, it also helps retailers stay flexible and adapt to the rapidly evolving market.

More and more retailers are realizing that migrating their security systems to the cloud offers them great benefits. If you want more information on how to migrate your security system, contact us today. A member of our team will respond to you as soon as possible.
