The cameras are easy to install, run off mains power and communicate over 4G (no IT integration required). Our patent-pending AI algorithms convert footsteps into highly accurate data and rich insights. This data is manually audited for accuracy every day and delivered to customers as a service via our proprietary, real-time dashboard and a comprehensive range of APIs.
