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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
