Smart-Q queue management system

07 July 2020

Available via specialist distributor, Switchtec, the Smart-Q system from Sirena is a self-powered luminous & acoustic system for the management of queues at the entrance to shops, supermarkets, banks, and post offices.

The Smart-Q system compromises of a Red & Green LED luminous beacon and an internal sounder, providing visual and audible indication to shoppers when it’s safe to enter a building. Just like a small Traffic Light the Smart-Q provides an indication, to those who are waiting at the entrance to a shop, when it is time to enter the building or move forward in a queue.

The battery powered Smart-Q traffic light system allows traders to regulate the flow of customers into and around their premises. Powered from a rechargeable battery, the Smart-Q guarantees 8 hours of continuous operation, then simply plugs in to a 230V power socket to recharge overnight.

To allow customers to do their shopping as safe as possible and help with safe social distancing, the Smart-Q manages the queue at the entrance of the building by staggering the entrance times. The Smart-Q can be controlled either by the built-in selectable timer or manually by the shop keeper via a remote-control key fob. The Smart-Q’s built in timer has a selectable 2-12 second delay, which changes the LED Traffic Light colour from Red to Green, and back to Red for the next customer. The built-in timer can be overridden by the shop keeper using the Key fob or used manually, as, and when the shop keeper is ready for the next customer.

The Smart-Q system is IP65 and supplied mounted on a Stainless-steel pole, fixed onto a sturdy base making the system ideal for internal or external use. Other mounting options are also available.

The Smart-Q from Sirena is easy to install as it does not need a qualified electrician to install. It also removes the necessity for a member of staff to control customer flow into the building, multiple devices can be connected and synchronized for orderly advancement of the queues in and around shops. Its simple operation makes it an ideal solution for queue management in small or large shops & supermarkets

The Smart-Q is part of Sirena’s range of Signalling devices which include Light Towers, Acoustic Alarms & Bells, Strobes and LED Beacons.
