Here are several features that automated car park station machines use to boost car park investment returns.
Maintaining a car park without the need for additional staff is a major return on investment. In such instances, companies keep car parks open and available 24/7. Clients can pay using a variety of means, and payments are kept secure in robust payment caches.
Detailed features include:
- Multi-level Cash Protection
- Coin, Banknote, Card and Contactless Options
- Ticket Reader
All car park payment machine stations feature intercoms and other security features that keep clients and payments safe.
Car parks must be kept secure using physical means. However, clients feel more secure when they know other people are available in the event of an emergency. Further, credit card data and digital payments also must be secured. As a result, multi-level security features are designed to meet these various demands separately, and simultaneously.
Multi-Level Security Features
- Anti-vandal LCD touch-screens
- RS/485 IP Communication
- Variable IP Intercom
- Multi-Language Options
IP communication tools ensure that credit card data is encrypted and secure. Other communication features, such as touch-screens and intercoms allow clients to communicate directly with security officers.
Car parks are often an entry point to the rest of a building, complex or location. Physical security features keep currency and clients secure while they are in the car park. Access control features keep an entire area secure.
Access Control Features
- RFID Car Reader
- Remote Monitoring
- Barrier Control
- Parking Ticket Validator
Access control features are easily integrated into stand-alone payment stations. They are also incorporated into complete parking systems. Complete parking systems feature barriers and gates to control access.
Information and Marketing
Car park payment station machines are sited at entrances and exits. These are prominent locations. Anyone strolling or driving past will see these stations. Anyone entering and exiting the car park interacts with these stations. Businesses capitalize on this prominence by using payment stations as ad space.
Seventeen-inch LCD screens are designed to communicate with users. Maps, promotions, upcoming events, important information and other messages are programmed into station screens. In addition, parking tickets feature ads and promotions.
