Successful business owners know that reputation and word of mouth is important to continued success. Unfortunately, many people develop poor opinions of businesses with loiterers and litter outside. This is an extremely common occurrence at convenience stores around the country.
Mint Controls’ Smart Bins monitor people and activities and prevent bins from overflowing. This reduces the amount of litter around the property and provides the data needed to locate and prevent people from loitering.
Prevent Dumpster Diving
The thought of people digging through garbage is both disgusting and unsettling. When people stick their hands in the garbage bin they’re just asking for trouble. Yet people do it every day and then go on to touch public door handles, shake hands, exchange money, etc., spreading germs and bacteria everywhere they go.
Our Smart Waste Bins make sure trash makes it into the bin, while keeping pests and people out. Everything is trapped safely inside where it belongs, including odors and harmful bacteria. Our bins are more attractive, safer, cleaner, and smarter than any other on the market.
Loitering is a major problem for convenience stores around the United States. Loiterers often obstruct doorways, parking lots, and other areas making it difficult for customers to come and go as they please. Sometimes loiterers intimidate potential customers, leading to lost business. These are the main reasons why most businesses discourage loitering. Unfortunately, without proper monitoring, there is absolutely no way to know if someone is loitering outside your property. Mint Controls’ LiDAR System solves this problem.
Mint Controls’ LiDAR System monitors movement and people within a space. It scans the area and provides data regarding the number and location of people as well as time spent in each area. This helps property owners better understand traffic. It also provides the information needed to locate loiterers.
Our system attaches easily to our Smart Bins and begins monitoring activities immediately. Users receive a text message alert when people linger too long in one area. Users can easily view the high quality images provided by the system on their smart phone or other device. This makes it possible to determine if further action is required.
Our LiDAR system provides a 360 degree view of the entire space being monitored. This is different than traditional surveillance cameras which only provide a 120 degree view.
Counting the number of people within a space is important for a number of reasons. Knowing how many people enter and leave your convenience store helps you better understand traffic. It also helps ensure compliance with local laws and regulations relating to occupancy.
