How PEARL Works
USD 499.95 Free Express Shipping

Your all-in-one people counter sensor

Fully wireless, PEARL works as a pair of sensors that creates an invisible ribbon across your entryway.

Every time someone walks between the two battery-powered sensors, PEARL captures your inbound and outbound footfall numbers accurately.

People counting made simple and flexible

Easy-to-use, scalable and affordable: see how PEARL makes it possible for even the smallest of businesses or nonprofits to capitalize on people counting insights.

Enjoy the best people counter experience

Check out these people counter performance features to get the most out of your PEARL People Counter.

Designed for outward opening doors, PEARL works ideally in low-to-medium traffic single- and double-door entryways, mall entrances and corridors.

PEARL can work with inward opening doors if the sensors are mounted beyond the door swing. Essentially: nothing, should block the direct signal between the sensors.

PEARL captures one person at at time and splits up entries and exits according to your foot traffic reporting options.
PEARL’s beam covers entrances up to 15 ft wide—7 ft in bright sunlight: more than enough for standard double doors.
Choose to capture adults AND children by installating PEARL at 24 inches high, or adults only by placing the sensors at 54 inches off the ground.
If your entrance is equipped with infrared operated doors*, consult installation recommendations before purchasing or check out our 3D SCOPE II LC People Counter.

*also applies to automatic garage doors with safety sensors

Everything you need. PEARL comes with pre-installed AA batteries, mounting brackets with peel-and-stick 3M™ tape already in place, and a special tool to press the hidden setup button. In other words: PEARL is ready to be installed in minutes—just stick at the entrance, pull the battery pull tabs, download the app, and follow the simple steps.

Yes. The PEARL People Counter works as a pair of two sensors, one main and one secondary unit. These two sensors come standard with every PEARL system at USD 499.95.

Install a sensor on each side of the doorway; when someone passes through the beam, PEARL adds that person to your foot traffic data. PEARL’s sensors are bidirectional, counting both ins and outs separately.

Yes, it is. No wires are needed. PEARL is WiFi-enabled and works with standard AA batteries.

It connects to standard 2.4 GHz WiFi networks such as W.P.A., WPA2, and WEP. The same network you connect to with your computer. Enterprise type of authentication is not supported, and 5Ghz-only networks are not supported.
Yes. PEARL can tell the difference between someone coming in and going out. It registers both. The standard report will show you the number of entries. You can see the number of exits in the detailed version of the report.
In theory, yes. It depends on the rules and settings of the public WiFi service. Connecting to your WiFi network is preferable.
PEARL detects one person at a time, so it works perfectly in most single-door and double-door entrances, and can still work well for large entrances with a low to medium traffic flow.
PEARL works with doors opening outwards. It can work in entrances with doors opening inwards too, as long as it’s mounted beyond the door swing, inside the location.
Yes. But if the system is directly exposed to bright sunlight, its maximum entrance coverage is reduced to 7 feet. This is more than enough, however, to cover standard double doors.
PEARL has many smart energy-saving features. Battery life depends on the factors below. While results may vary, you can typically expect between 6 to 12 months of battery life, excluding Real-Time Mode*. PEARL will send you an email alert when the battery level is low. Factors that can affect battery life.
  • Communication frequency with the server: the LITE Plan connects to the server every hour. 30–min and 15–min intervals, or even real-time* connection, are available with other Plans.
  • Distance between sensors: PEARL automatically adjusts its signal detection capability when the primary and secondary units are farther apart—this draws more energy from the battery.
  • Sunlight exposition: PEARL automatically adjusts its signal detection capability when exposed to sunlight—this draws more energy from the battery.
  • WiFi signal strength: if the WiFi signal is low, PEARL may require more energy from the battery to establish a connection.
  • Regular blocking of the beam signal: PEARL will send alerts every time its signal is blocked by someone or something for more than 60 seconds. If this happens often, it could affect battery life.
  • Regular business or operating hours: PEARL shuts down automatically to save the battery energy according to hours you entered in the software.
  • Use of Energizer™ batteries: high-quality batteries make a real difference. Some inexpensive batteries have low capacity and end up costing more in the long run.
*Note: Real-Time Mode, part of the REAL-TIME Plan, requires constant energy flow from the battery to connect to the Cloud server. We recommend using Batteries to Power Adapter sold on Amazon, as batteries will only last a few days in Real-Time mode.

Yes. Although we do not recommend it for occupancy monitoring, as PEARL can only count one person at a time. The 3DScope II LC is the better product for occupancy monitoring.

In Real-Time Mode, PEARL will stay connected to your WiFi, and it will send counts immediately, as they happen. We recommend using Battery to Power Outlet adapters, sold on Amazon, as batteries will only last a few days in Real-Time mode.

PEARL will not register multiple counts if someone stands still between the sensors. If someone or something blocks the beams for more than 60 seconds, PEARL will send you a heads-up message by email.

PEARL has a built-in memory and can store up to 24 days of data. It will continue to count, even if the WiFi network is down.

If the battery runs out, the internal memory will keep track of all the people counts that weren’t sent to the server. PEARL will transfer the data to the server as soon as good batteries are installed.

To count accurately, the PEARL People Counter requires an unobstructed view between the sensors. Varying tint, thickness, or reflective properties of glass can affect PEARL’s beam signal. Our 3D SCOPE II LC People Counter would be a better solution in this context.

There’s no need: PEARL is so easy to install, anyone can do it. The simple installation steps are included in the app’s installation guide.

There’s also a video to help you out.

We recommend installing PEARL at the height of 54 inches. This height should be measured from the bottom of the sensor to the ground. Make sure the sensors are installed higher than any door handle.

No. Once placed in its brackets, PEARL is solidly locked in. The double-stick tape used to affix the brackets is very strong. There’s also a screw at the bottom to make the sensors even harder to remove. The brackets themselves can be screwed in instead of the stick-on-install option, using three screws placed through the beveled screw holes.

PEARL can count children and adults by installing at 24-inches high, instead of 54 inches. This is still in beta, we have not added the steps in the configurator in the App. Please follow the instructions on this help page: SMS Store Traffic — How to count children with PEARL (beta)

Storetraffic engineers in Canada developed PEARL. It’s also manufactured in Canada.
