Digital People counter




High-precision digital people counting in real time. The electronic passage control of HOF-Automation ensures maximum security and reliability in counting people and to limit the number of people entering the sales area during the Corona pandemic. Equipped with an optical feedback system it offers immediate clarity to customers whether they are allowed to enter the store.


The result: A smoothly running and secure day-to-day business - and this is independent, easy and completely automatic.


The advantage: The electronic passage control can be used anywhere and at any time.

Once installed, the system works completely autonomously. Thus, it protects the personnel from any risks of infection as well as from cold and damp weather conditions. If entrance inspectors have to warm up, pause or if their concentration drops after a few hours, this may lead to an incorrect count result.


The consequence: Increased risk for customers and personnel and the non-compliance with the current Corona regulations. 

How the System works

The handling of the digital passage control is simple. Before the first application, the maximum number of people allowed in the sales room is determined via a panel. This setting can be adjusted at any time.


The operator-friendly system ensures easy and effortless handling. For installation, simply supply the pillar with standard household electricity via a standard outlet. For fixation, the system is either bolted or glued in the entrance area.


Whether it be in supermarkets, petrol stations, drugstores, bakeries or car dealerships - the electronic passage control facilitates the daily business of all types of stores.


Absolute highlight: In addition to a visual display, the system can also be optionally equipped with an acoustic warning signal. This increases its reliability even further, because customers are again advised of the restriction - in case they neglect to check the entrance stop.
