Crosby Intruder Alarms would like to introduce OCCUPi which is an Occupancy Control System for multiple environments.

The Problem

With current Social Distancing Guidelines in place and the fact they are likely to be in place for the foreseeable future, hiring a Security Guard to man the entrance to the shop or having a dedicated member of staff is not only costly and a waste of resources but can often put the person in line for confrontation from angry members of the public or even be putting them at risk of being exposed to COVID-19.

The Solution

With OCCUPi, it allows for an unmanned automatic store occupancy system to be installed with a clear sign or traffic light system for when a store is at its maximum capacity.

How Can Crosby Intruder Alarms Help?

By using OCCUPi we can provide you with a fully automated, LIVE Occupancy System working with Control that will allow the premises owner or manager to set a MAXIMUM number of customers into their premises. When this number has been met, the sign or traffic light at the entrance will display “FULL” and the door will not open. We may need to work in conjunction with your automatic door company to connect the two systems together, or we can install our own Access Control System.

By Using “Deep Learning Video Analytics” this technology allows the system to recognise people and count the numbers entering and exiting the premises, access to the premises will only be allowed when the total number of customers falls below the number set for the store. The system allows for a fully automated, unmanned control over the store occupancy level.



The OCCUPi Solution can be rapidly deployed, reducing the number of staff required to control the occupancy levels in store, with the added benefit of reassuring customers.

What are the benefits?

  • Labour deployment efficiency and savings
  • Risk mitigation during peak shopping experience
  • Compliance with social distancing, critical for current COVID-19 pandemic and for the new “retail norm” post pandemic
  • A solution that will continue to benefit you for years to come






How Does OCCUPi Work?

By using the latest Deep Learning Technology and Advance People Detection the system requires a camera to be installed at both the entrance and exit to the premises. These are configured to a Deep Learning Box to recognise people when entering and exiting the building, coupled with a live counter to register the occupancy level set on the Deep Learning Box. Access Control set through relays, control the automated doors and the “FULL” sign or traffic light to show customers when they have to wait and when they are allowed to enter the premises.

The Deep Learning Box can be connected to your existing network or we can supply you with a 4G Router which allows premises managers to change the occupancy level at any time allowing them to respond to events on site and control the flow of customers.

It is recommended that signage is used to inform customers of the system and make them aware of how it works. With signage in place, customers will be controlled in an orderly fashion without the need for a dedicated staff member or security guard to maintain access to the premises. This removes the risk of human error and reduced ongoing costs.


If you would like a FREE remote demonstration of OCCUPi this can be organised  via a Zoom Meeting in conjunction with our supplier. Please get in touch via our contact form and a member of our team will get back to you as soon as possible to organise.
