Astra Security and Customer Flow Control

Astra Security design, supply, install and maintain integrated security systems. We offer bespoke solutions that deliver against your security needs. We use industry leading technology across CCTV, remote monitoring, access control and more.

Customer Flow Control

In order to enable social distancing, it is imperative that buildings and facilities limit the number of people allowed inside.

Customer flow can be controlled using the Density Control Solution which can be used in supermarkets, retailers, post offices, banks, and other places for managing the number of people on their premises at any one time. It uses people counting, a dynamic display and real-time alerts to ensure pre-defined capacity thresholds are never exceeded.  It can also be used in locations with multiple entrances and exits. Optional software is also available to access important data such as reports to gather trend analysis.
