I am looking for a bidirectional people counter for the entrance of one location to start. I am just testing some of my own ideas with the data generated by the device. The device needs the have the following traits:
- Relatively small and easy to install in an entrance
- Data is accessible live via API (wifi or 3/4G capable)
- Can count incoming and outgoing people
- Preferably overhead installation
- Will ship to the USA!
What I want is essentially this company's product: https://www.density.io/
However, I have been following them and I doubt it will ever be released. There are many other companies, but they are either offering something considerably more expensive packed with additional features or they want a monthly subscription like density per device which can get pricey. I have considered building my own device and system. Am I overlooking a good alternative?
