Hikvision Smart Parking Management Solution

With years of experience applying intelligent solutions in thousands of businesses around the world, Hikvision is set to make life easier for parking operators. With their state-of-the-art Smart Parking Management Solution, this solution from Hikvision masterfully improves the efficient management, security, and profitability objectives of parking operators.


For parking lots close to town centers or popular facilities, high customer flow during rush hours often creates parking entrance congestion. Effective parking safety and management are critical concerns here, especially in retail sectors.


The Hikvision Smart Parking Management System applies the latest barrier technology, combining it with Hikvision’s industry-standard Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) to ensure seamless, managed vehicular entrance and exit from parking lots. Fast vehicle identification and integrated barrier control software means queues are minimized, and greater vehicle flow can be handled to increase the productivity and efficiency of any parking site.


Advanced Hikvision DarkFighter and True WDR imaging technologies are employed in the ANPR system, as well as optional IR or built-in white light LED lighting. These industry-leading technologies ensure the delivery of crisp and clear recognition and recording of every vehicle using a parking lot day and night.


Parking Guidance cameras in this robust solution automatically monitor the use of the car park along with the availability of spaces, 24 hours a day. More sophisticated and useful than the usual ‘Spaces available’ sign, the system actually highlights the available parking spaces to customers and guides them to those spaces upon arrival. This is achieved via parking guidance display screens at critical junctions within the car park, which display the number and location of available parking spaces. Additionally, a dynamic lighting indicator system directs customers to a specific space available – reducing customer parking times and creating an experience where drivers always find a free parking space quickly.


Controlled by the Hikvision Parking Guidance Terminal, the system not only provides power and network access for up to 32 nearby cameras, but also provides real-time video for surveillance and incident evidence preservation. Additionally, terminals back up critical data locally and can run parking guidance offline – to ensure optimal system reliability and minimal impact on local area data networks.


Creating additional value and an improving end-user experience in a parking lot, the Hikvision Smart Parking Management System includes a ‘Find My Car’ feature. When returning to the parking lot, drivers can use the Query Kiosk touchscreen. By simply entering their license plate number in full or in part, vehicles can be easily located on a schematic floor map, and the vehicle location displayed, along with the shortest and quickest route to the vehicle.


Day-to-day management, including remote barrier control, license plate access management, vehicle accidents and unauthorized parking, can now be achieved with Hikvision’s centralized parking management platform. Providing the information and tools essential to ensuring smooth parking lot operation, the Hikvision Smart Parking Management Solution employs a central management platform that enables operators to deploy manpower, monitor a comprehensive facility overview, and respond to planned and unplanned events quickly and efficiently.
