Authorities all over the world are contemplating imposing lockdowns in a bid to curb the pandemic’s spread. The alternative is getting people to observe the recommended social distancing guidelines. The alternative is better since businesses can keep their doors open, and life can continue with some degree of normalcy.

Observing social distancing guidelines has been tricky. However, it will prove easier and efficient if retailers use retail occupancy signs.



How Does a Retail Occupancy Sign Work?

Retailers are trying out different solutions to limit the number of customers to acceptable amounts. One such solution is appointing an employee to guard the door. A retail occupancy sign does the same, but it relies on sophisticated technology.

A retail occupancy sign uses monitors, sensors, and screens to regulate occupancy rates. Sensors are installed at the entrance and exit points to keep count of how many people are coming and leaving at any given time. Monitors then keep track of the occupants and deduce important factors such as how long a shopper will stay or how much they will spend.

Data collected by the sensors and monitors is then relayed to a screen outside the retail store. The screen tells shoppers outside whether it is safe to come in, including estimates of how long it will take until there is enough room. It isn’t complicated, and it can be designed to work like a traffic light post telling customers when to come in and how long to wait.

For Business & Public Health 

Retail occupancy signs strike a delicate compromise between economy-crippling shutdowns and safeguarding public health. Many people will be willing to comply, as they are aware of the dangers posed by exposure to COVID-19 and, at the same time, want to return to a sense of normalcy.
