1.Package Contents of wifi people counter
Opening the packing box, there are a RX (receiver), a TX (transmitter), two
rechargeable lithium batteries, a charger, double-sided tapes, two mounting
brackets and a small wrench.
2.Installation of Cover Plate
There is a cambered notch at the top of receiver and transmitter. Use the thumbs of both hands to press the cover plate and the base, then open the cover plate carefully. After the installation and settings are finished, the cover plate can be buckled on.
Be sure to install the cover plates in correct direction.
The black bar area of the cover plate is infrared light transmission area. The infrared light of transmitter emits infrared ray beams through the area. Receiver receives the infrared ray beams and shows the contents of OLED display screen through the area.
3.Introductions of Receiver Panel for wifi people counter
After installing the battery, OLED display screen will show the booting information. By touching the touch sensor button, you can switch the contents on display screen: the current battery remaining capacity (BAT) and product serial number (SN), working parameters, open and close time, start AP menu and so on. If without touch operation for more than 10 seconds, the display screen will automatically turn off to reduce power consumption.
There are three indicator lights for receiver:
Red indicator light is used as the infrared focus indication. When receiver cannot receive the infrared signal from transmitter, the red indicator light will flash. Through this indicator light, you can easily find the suitable
mounting position of transmitter.
Yellow indicator light is used for low-voltage battery alarm and charge indications. When the battery voltage is too low, the indicator light will flash to remind you to charge or replace the battery. When the battery is charged through the USB interface, the indicator light is on. If you do not want to use battery, turn the DIP switch of power supply mode to the "V" position, then you can use the USB interface to charge the receiver.
Blue indicator light is for WIFI network transmission or data saving indication.
4.Introductions of Transmitter Panel
There are two indicator lights for transmitter:
Red indicator light is used as low-voltage battery alarm indication. When the battery voltage is too low, the indicator light will flash to remind you to charge or replace the battery.
Blue indicator light is self-test indication. When the battery is installed, the blue light will go out after flashing 3 times, that means the device is normal.
If you do not want to use battery, turn the DIP switch of power supply mode to the "V" position, then you can use the USB interface to charge the transmitter.
There are two DIP switches on transmitter. Switch 1 is used to control the frequency of transmitter, which should be corresponding to the detection speed of receiver. If the receiver is set to high speed, you need to turn switch 1 of transmitter to upside position; on the contrary, turn switch 1 to downside position. Switch 2 is used to set high power (upside position) or low power (downside position). If switch 2 is set to upside position, the infrared signal can transmit longer distance. After changing the position of DIP switch, you need to re-install the battery to make it effective.
5.The Usage of Charger
When the battery remaining capacity is low, please use the matched charger to charge it. The maximum charging process takes about 6 hours. The green indicator light is on after the battery is fully charged. The charger can charge two lithium batteries at the same time. The “+” on battery should toward the direction of indicator light.
6.Preparations before Installing Receiver of our HPC015S automated IR beam wifi human people counter sensor
First of all, you need to ensure that the receiver will work in standalone mode or network mode. If in network mode, it is necessary to ensure a good WIFI signal coverage in the installation location. You can use a smartphone to check the WIFI network signal strength in the installation location. If the WIFI signal strength is too weak, the battery power consumption of receiver will increase when connecting network or the receiver maybe not able to connect the network.
7.Working Principle of HPC015S automated IR beam wifi human people counter sensor
Receiver and transmitter should be used together and installed on both sides of entrance face to face. When there is no person traversing the entrance, receiver can receive the infrared signal from transmitter. When a person passes through the entrance, the infrared signal will be blocked. Receiver can automatically identify person’s walking direction through the infrared block direction, and then make a count.
8.Installation of Receiver
Receiver is installed on the right side of entrance in pedestrian’s entry direction. The USB interface of receiver faces down, and the infrared receiving units of receiver face the direction of transmitter. Use the matched double-sided tape to paste the receiver on the wall or door frame at about 1.3m height. If there is no suitable flat surface to fix the receiver directly in the installation location, you can use the matched mounting bracket to make sure the receiver and transmitter is face-to-face.
9.Usage of the Mounting Bracket
If the mounting positions on both sides of entrance are not parallel, it is recommended to use the mounting brackets. It is very easy to make receiver and transmitter face-to-face by adjusting the angle of mounting bracket.
Use the matched double-sided tape to paste the back of receiver and transmitter on the mounting brackets. Fix the other side of mounting bracket on the wall or door frame with the screws or double-sided tapes. Adjust the angle of receiver or transmitter, then use the small wrench to tighten the screws on the mounting bracket so that the bracket is not easy to change the angle.
10.Installation of Transmitter
Install the transmitter on the other side of entrance, at the same height with receiver, the USB interface faces down, the infrared transmission units face the direction of receiver. The launch angle of transmitter is relatively wide, so the receiver can normally receive the infrared signal from transmitter in a larger area. When the mounting position of transmitter is correct, the red indicator light of receiver will go out. Use double-sided tape or mounting brasket to fix transmitter on the mounting position.
11.Display Screen Contents of Receiver
Touch the under face of the light bar (touch sensor button position) to wake up the OLED display screen. When the OLED display screen is light, the display contents will be switched every time you touch the OLED display screen. The below contents can be displayed respectively:
As the device is battery-powered, in order to maximize the battery life, the display screen will automatically turn off if without touch operation in 10 seconds.
