After emailing LittleBits for technical support, I was told by Theodore and Kathy that I should post my request here so that the “Community Manager” can respond and share this with the forum.
Here is a recap of our goal with utilizing LittleBits:
We want to use your simple parts to build a simple sensor that can count people throughout the day. Nothing fancy - it just needs to be functional. For context, we want to use it in our convenient store to capture traffic analytics. There is only one door to enter/exit the store, so we want to be able to count people here. Additionally, perhaps you can come up with a way to track activity in the aisles of the store as well. So, our primary goal is to build something that will capture traffic/count of people walking through the door… and our secondary goal is to capture any other analytics that can be built with your parts as far as store analytics (i.e. store aisle activity, etc).
I hope this makes sense. You have flexibility in using whatever sensors/means that you offer to achieve these goals. You are the experts, and we are open to suggestions.
