People counter

Count people entering and leaving a location. Even if customers can enter or leave through more than one doorway, this automatically counts the total number of people in the building. Real-time occupancy levels are displayed on signage in multiple locations.

Entrance control

When occupancy levels reach maximum, doors can be closed automatically. They will automatically be reopened when occupancy levels are reduced. Signage informs customers when the location is full. If Queue Management is also installed, it will automatically be enabled on demand.

Management alerts

Notify staff when occupancy levels reach preset thresholds so that staffing levels can be adjusted to meet demand.

Ombori Grid is trusted by leading companies worldwide


Occupancy Control allows you to ensure compliance with regulations and provides valuable data that enables you to make critical decisions. Signage ensures transparency which increases visitor satisfaction.

  • Safety: be confident that the location is compliant at all times with fire, insurance or COVID regulations governing the maximum number of people permitted.
  • Reduce costs: no need to have staff standing at the door controlling entrances.
  • Accuracy: since all entrances and exits are monitored centrally, there is no risk of inaccurate data or breaching occupancy levels through staff failing to communicate.
  • Analyze peaks and troughs: determine what days and times are the most popular so that you can adjust staff levels accordingly.
  • Understand external factors: analyze how demand is affected by factors such as weather or local events.
  • Optimize staff utilization: adjust staff assignments in real time in response to the number of visitors.
  • Reduce visitor frustration: clearly displaying current occupancy levels allows visitors to understand what is happening when the location is temporarily closed.
  • Smoother visitor flow: visitors can choose low occupancy times so that they can get in and out more efficiently or have a more pleasant experience.
  • Smart queue management: visitors can enter at will if there is capacity, but can join a virtual queue if the location is full.
