STERLING, Va. — Retail technology firm iConnect is rolling out a new traffic counting system that uses a handful of inexpensive digital cameras not only to count store traffic, but also to report on where shoppers linger and whether or not they are repeat visitors.

​The new Visilytics is slated to roll out around Thanksgiving time and is meant to replace a system that was launched just a few years ago by Amitesh Sinha, owner and chief information officer of the Sterling, Va.-based iConnect.That earlier system — called SIA for Shopper Intelligence Analytics — used WiFi routers as sensors. They were placed strategically in the store, to count and follow any consumer who walked in the door with any brand of smartphone. SIA did a good job of connecting to the shoppers, calculating their numbers, tracking their time spent in various areas of the store and reporting all this to the retailer, for a low monthly subscription fee, Sinha said.
