Smart &
Secure Parking

Leverage EPIC iO’s IoT and AI analytics to identify suspicious activities in parking lots, and to understand the overall parking occupancy and parking bay availability, providing a more secure and smarter service to the community or business.

Solution

EPIC iO’s solution for Smart Parking and Parking Security Monitoring uses proprietary AI and IoT technology to monitor vehicles and pedestrians as they utilize the parking lot. Our solution identifies suspicious activities in parking lots, such as loitering, and automatically reports blacklisted vehicles through LPR. All this combined with 24/7 event monitoring and real-time alerting.

Advance technology

In addition, EPIC iO’s solution enables you to understand parking occupancy, track parking bay availability, and entry/exit count of vehicles through AI-based analytics. Automate the flow of traffic in your parking lot and effortlessly monitor parking space occupancy – all in real-time. Special handicap spots or electric vehicle charging bays can be reported separately.

Real-time data can be accessed through EPIC iO’s DeepInsights dashboard to predict parking demand, parking habits, and to support smart decision-making regarding infrastructure developments in the community.

Smart Secure Parking

Challenges

According to the US Department of Justice, parking lots are the third most common place where crimes occur with thousands of security incidents reported daily. The most frequent parking lot crimes are personal theft and vandalism, such as “smash-and-grab” crimes of opportunity.

For parking lot managers and public officials, maintaining safety is only part of the parking lot problem. Understanding parking lot usage, fluctuations per season, space saturation, utilization by type of vehicle, and delivery notifications – among other insights – is key for efficient city asset planning. Providing users with predictable data to anticipate their parking needs and direct visitors to underutilized parking areas is essential to customer satisfaction.

Anytime a bad guy or person of interest to law enforcement comes in here and their tag is read, it will notify our entire police department. We're trying to keep the bad guys out and protect our citizens.

How long is video retained?

Video recording is stored at the edge, near the camera, for 30-plus days. Live video is pulled into the DeepInsights cloud platform on demand, so it doesn’t consume your cellular bandwidth. This allows you to retrieve video evidence from an incident for that period.

How long does the system store metadata?

For analytics and metadata results, the system can store events for up to 6 months with access provided through DeepInsights. The exact number of days can vary slightly based on the amount of activity on the scene. Additional storage capacity is available upon request.

Can I receive notifications when an incident happens?

IntelliSite’s DeepInsights allows users to configure SMS or email alerts to the designated individuals you want notified. Additionally, events can be validated through our 24/7 event monitoring service.

What if an incident happens and I wasn’t notified?

Even if the system fails to capture the actual incident, the camera can still capture the vehicle and license plate, along with the fact that the vehicle was present at the intersection during the time of the event. After an incident is reported, the archived video footage can be used as evidence.

What about false alarms?

The service includes a remote monitoring center that uses live video verification to eliminate false alarms. This video verification is used prior to taking action in order to deter possible offenders and notify first responders.

Can I rebrand the system?

Yes. It is recommended that the system be branded as your own, so it will be immediately recognizable throughout your community. Through our Citizen Engagement program, you can apply a large decal to the unit to reinforce the fact that you are taking initiatives to monitor traffic safety and allowing citizens to scan a QR code to gain access to all information.

Can I reuse our fiber that already exists?

Yes, the system can reuse your fiber infrastructure instead of using a cellular connection.

Can I import data into a business intelligence (BI) tool?

Yes, the analytics can be exported to your BI tool of preference, or used to populate data you may want to build.

Can I integrate with an existing VMS we used?

Yes, our system supports integration with the most common Video Management Systems for alerting and video management. New custom integration is available upon demand through MQTT, Kafka, HTTP, or other communication mechanisms.

If it is solar powered, how does it work at night?

The on-board battery completely powers the system for up to 30 days. The camera also has night vision, which uses an IR illumination to provide a clear image at night.
