SenSource Introduces Mobile App for SafeSpace Occupancy Monitoring

SafeSpace by SenSource provides libraries an easy-to-use real-time occupant counter to help provide safe environments for patrons. Library staff has even easier access now with the newly released smartphone app.

Youngstown, OH July 17, 2020: Cities across the U.S. continue to emerge from a post COVID-19 shut down with different regulations in place. Libraries are being especially cautious as they want to provide safe environments for patrons as they return. SafeSpace by SenSource is an automated occupancy monitoring solution that helps libraries achieve this goal.

SafeSpace consists of two components. It starts with SenSource’s people counting sensor. Boasting 97%+ accuracy, the sensor is mounted overhead of entrances and exits. As visitors cross the designated threshold marker, it automatically sends the count to the cloud, updating the location’s occupancy in real-time. The sensor can accurately monitor multiple customers at multiple entrances/exits at the same time. Removing the human element from the counting process can increase accuracy and productivity.

The second component is an optional display that communicates a real-time occupancy count. The color-coded display conveys to visitors if and when it is safe to enter a facility. It also helps employees understand occupancy to ensure visitors are following guidelines.

For libraries with multiple entrances, sensors can be combined with SafeSpace’s manual entries via the brand new SafeSpace smartphone app. The app is available via the Apple App Store and the Google Play store for Android devices. The app allows users to manually increase or decrease the occupancy numbers, or just pull up the current occupancy to stay informed.

Data is stored in SenSource’s cloud-based Vea Reporting Platform. Users can access reports showing library usage which can often be used in funding, grants, and resource allocation decisions. “The main focus of SafeSpace is to count real-time and communicate those counts to employees and patrons. However, capturing that data and leveraging it into decision making metrics is a permanent goal at SenSource,” Dan Aluise, SenSource’s General Manager, remarked.
