Genetec, a leading provider of open architecture security and public safety solutions, announced its latest version of AutoVu™ Free-Flow off-street parking management solution.
Designed to help increase parking enforcement efficiency by providing a real-time inventory of vehicles parked illegally in monitored parking lots, Free-Flow will now be offered within Genetec Security Center, the company’s unified security platform that combines video surveillance, access control and automatic license plate recognition (ALPR).
Catching parked vehicles in violation is a challenge for many parking organizations. Business managers estimate that they apprehend less than a quarter of parking violators. With AutoVu Free-Flow, parking enforcement officers can easily identify lots with unenforced violations and dynamically adjust their patrol routes to maximize violation capture rates.
A growing number of parking property owners are investigating gateless parking to reduce vehicle congestion and provide a more convenient and efficient parking experience. AutoVu Free-Flow provides the technology to forego using gates, while maintaining compliance with parking rules.
With Free-Flow now an integral part of Security Center, parking managers will be able to monitor occupancy and violations across all their parking lots, directly from one location.
Genetec™ Plan Manager provides an added interactive and graphical mapping application allows operators to better visualize and manage environments. With Plan Manager and Free-Flow in Security Center, parking lot owners will now be able to dynamically navigate and oversee a large number of properties via their installed ALPR and associated video surveillance cameras for real-time, correlative coverage.
When parking occupancy reaches a certain threshold, parking managers can rely on Free-Flow to trigger actions advising customers that parking space count is low, or the lot is full or closed using third party signage within the parking property. This allows parking officers to direct customers accordingly and better-manage lots, especially in complex urban environments.
