Turn on the WIFI function of your smartphone, search for WIFI networks, and find your network. Our network hotspot named “HXZY”, join this network, and make sure that the network is successfully connected.

After starting the AP service, if there is no mobile phone connected to the “HXZY” network within 30 seconds, the AP service will be automatically closed. You need to pay attention to the countdown on the screen of the passenger flow counting terminal, and the countdown will restart every time you touch it again.

If the mobile phone has been connected to the “HXZY” network, the AP service of the passenger flow counting terminal will continue to be maintained, so there is no need to worry about the countdown time.

If there are other wireless devices in use or WIFI channel interference around, it may fail to add network, you can try to add network again.

3.The terminal configuration interface for the number of people counting in the store

Open the browser, enter: 192.168.8.1 in the address bar, press OK (GO) to enter the passenger flow counting terminal configuration page. The initial password is 1234, you need to enter the password to log in before you can select the setting content.

4.Stand-alone Parameter Configuration

When the store people counting sensor runs for the first time, it needs to enter the “single machine parameter” configuration interface to set the business hours and statistical data analysis period.

5.Store Staff Counter Connection Wifi Parameter Configuration

If the store personnel counter needs cloud management, enter “Network Configuration” to configure the WIFI network name, password and server address (WIFI network with Chinese and English names are supported).

Before configuration, you need to prepare a smart phone with WIFI function to complete the subsequent configuration work.

Tip: Starting the AP service (WiFi configuration mode) consumes a lot of power. It is recommended to complete the settings as soon as possible and close the AP service in time.

Fourth: The Working Principle And Installation Steps Of The Shop Personnel Counter

1. The working principle of shop personnel counter

Shop personnel counting sensors need to be used in conjunction with infrared transmitters, which are installed face to face on both sides of the entrance and exit. 

When there are pedestrians at the entrance and exit, the infrared signal is blocked by the pedestrian, and the store people counting sensor automatically recognizes the walking direction of the pedestrian through the infrared blocking direction and automatically counts the number of people.

2. Installation And Debugging Of Shop Personnel Counting Sensor

The shop people counting sensor is installed on the right side of the pedestrian entering direction at the entrance and exit, with the USB interface facing down, and the infrared receiving unit facing the infrared transmitter.

Use the matching double-sided tape or screws to fix the terminal on a wall or door frame with a height of about 1.2 meters. Make sure that the passenger flow counting terminal and the infrared transmitter are aligned. Then the installation is complete, the whole installation process is very simple.
