AccuraCounter Overview - Standalone Counter

The AccuraCounter was introduced in 1986 when Mark Walker developed an ac-powered library patron counter using an industrial security sensor and a pedometer as a display. It sold for $99 and was very popular. By the way, today's adjusted price for that sensor would be $235 plus shipping.
The AccuraCounter underwent many changes as technology improved and other features were requested - but the basic idea of a reliable, responsive, inexpensive, simple to install, simple to use counter still remains.

Today, We Count People offers a number of versions of the AccuraCounter, and those will be reviewed below. All AccuraCounters are ac-powered and provide a total count (no breakdown of hourly, daily, monthly counts). The user would walk to the display, write down the count, and reset to zero.

Overhead Counter Overview - Ceiling Mounted Counters

This section will review the counters that are installed above the entrance.

The TotalCounterOH is not as accurate as the other two counters - nor does it offer reporting - but it is less expensive and is easier to install. The TotalCounter Video is typically 95% accurate and includes on-board counts that are accessed by Internet Explorer Web Browser. The IP Connected Video counter is the most accurate, can be used to measure across very wide entrances, and includes sophisticated cloud-bases reporting packages.
