New generation of ­parking systems

August 2013 Access Control & Identity Management

CAME, a leader in access control, gate, door and traffic automation has recently released a new generation of parking systems. PS ONE is said to represent the future of parking systems.

It is a Web-based solution for pay-parking systems. It is made for maximum connectivity and system integration. This is important in order to save time and money during the normal working life and maintenance of the system. The software package allows the system manager to connect to the parking system from any remote location, allowing them to view the system status and any maintenance requirements.

The Ethernet interface allows for an unlimited number of peripherals such as automatic cash registers, entry and exit units, pedestrian monitors, and staffed pay stations. PS ONE offers many advantages and benefits when compared to traditional systems:

* Efficiency and control, always and anywhere. Real-time management.

* Licence plate recognition and HD images of all four sides of the vehicle.

* Multiple payment methods: Bank notes, coins, credit and debit cards, smartphone and even NFC (Near Field Communication). Customers can also pay using pre-paid vouchers via the Web.

* Special agreements for revenue generating solutions: discounts, vouchers, rechargeable pre-paid cards. 1D and 2D bar codes even on smartphones.

The parking system can be complemented with a wide range of barriers: from the entry level G3250 (3.25 m) to the GARD12 – biggest one in market (12 m). The GARD3 barrier offers one of the quickest opening times in the market – 0,9 second to raise the bar of 3 m.
