The Wilderness footfall unit is easy to install and simple to reposition if needed. The unit secures to new/existing metal posts, gatework or fencing.


Remote Monitoring

In addition to the detailed visitor/environmental data, the footfall unit sends out information about the health of the unit itself, allowing each unit to be monitored remotely and reducing the need for unnecessary maintenance visits.


Tamper/Theft Alert

Designed to be left unattended in remote locations, the Wilderness Footfall counter has an inbuilt theft alert system. The unit can sense that it is being moved from its location and begin sending out alerts. The unit can also detect if it has been knocked out of alignment and sends this information as part of the monitoring information.



Wilderness Footfall does not capture any identifiable visitor information, which makes it the perfect solution when GDPR privacy is a concern.                         

 Footfall Analysis

Wilderness Sensors can help you answer some key questions about the movement of visitors at your location

When are visitors most likely to visit my site?

Using the online analytics, easily correlate visitor numbers against time of day, external temperature, weather, season, etc to determine when visitors are most likely to visit.

How are my visitors moving around my site?

Using sensors stationed at all the key points, microflow information can be generated which can allow you to see how visitors are moving round the location. This can then inform visitor experience improvements.

Which of my locations is currently the busiest?

Determine macro-flow across multiple sites by easily correlating visitor numbers in real-time with average length of stay, to work out which sites are currently busiest.
