Area Counting Mode
- Area counting is mainly for stores that have crowded spaces, with random walking pattern. Unable to draw the In/Out line on the store entrance due to limited space.
- Using a tracking zone to count the visitors: when a person enters the tracking zone for more than “2 seconds” (adjustable), it will be counted as IN
- Accuracy level tested: > 90%

Low Ceiling Mode
- For device mounted on the ceiling between 2.15-2.4m.
