The UK Government announced some of the biggest changes to lockdown restrictions in England since March yesterday. With many premises now set to reopen on 4th July, we’ve taken a look at how the new Parametric smart capacity monitoring solution can help monitor capacity and ensure customer safety going forward.
Over the last three months, we’ve all become accustomed to the 2 metre social distancing guidelines. As we approach stage 3 of England’s lockdown exit strategy social distancing is due to be lowered to 1 metre+ in areas such as bars, hotels and restaurants where the 2m rule is more difficult to apply.
Based on the latest Government guidelines (dated 23/06/2020), Restaurants, pubs, bars and shops should all calculate the maximum number of customers they can accommodate to reasonably follow social distancing. This is where the Parametric smart capacity monitoring solution can help!
Meet the Parametric PCR2-XIO
Paired with the new specially designed light pole, the Parametric outdoor people counter sensor can be configured to your capacity numbers to display a green or red light based on whether it’s safe to enter or not. This compact device can sit neatly in your venues entrance to help manage queues.
What does it do?
The Parametric PCR2-XIO is a bidirectional counting sensor which uses radar signals to monitor the number of people entering and leaving your premises. With an XIO extension board for digital outputs, the sensor can be configured to work alongside other devices to control equipment, lamps and/or access control systems.
