No Need for LPR or privacy concerns with INDECT’s ‘Car Locator’ software v2.0

June 17, 2019





No Need for LPR or privacy concerns with INDECT’s ‘Car Locator’ software v2.0




Boston, MA (June 17, 2019) INDECT USA today announces the newest version of their popular Car Locator software, version 2.0. This software allows customers to quickly and easily find their car using on-site kiosks or the INDECT Car Locator App.




The latest release features the unique ability to quickly and easily locate customers’ vehicles in any parking garage or open-air lot, while maintaining complete owner privacy and complying with all applicable state laws.


“Previously, some garages were prevented from offering our original Car Locator feature as it uses license plate recognition technology and this conflicts with their local state laws concerning privacy,” said Dale Fowler, President of INDECT USA.


“The latest version of Car Locator uses the unique time and date stamp on each parking ticket to locate the customer’s vehicle and does not require the installation of LPR at all.” said Fowler.


According to Fowler, customers enter the unique time and date stamp from their parking ticket into the onsite INDECT kiosk. The system then displays all vehicles that parked in the garage within 5-10 minutes of this time. The customer is able to select their car and follow the onscreen directions to their vehicle.


“This new version is not just great for protecting people’s privacy, it’s also perfect for states that don’t require vehicles to display front plates and for people who simply do not know their license plate details.” he said.


INDECT also offers garage owners the option of integrating a barcode scanner, or coder from the parking system, into the Car Locator kiosk.  Customers would simply scan their parking ticket barcode and select their car from the vehicles displayed.


“INDECT is constantly researching and developing new technologies to ensure our system continually meets the needs of our customers. We work hard to be the best parking guidance system on the market and that means listening to feedback and using it to generate new ideas and new products.” said Fowler.




INDECT is the leading provider of parking guidance systems. INDECT’s systems combine the most advanced parking space sensors with industry-leading data management technology to offer drivers a safer, more convenient parking experience while helping parking owners operate their parking assets more efficiently and profitably.

TagMaster closes acquisition of Sensys Networks



Stockholm Sweden 14 June, 2019

TagMaster AB (publ) (“TagMaster”), a leading manufacturer and supplier of advanced sensor systems for Smart Cities, has completed the acquisition of Sensys Networks Inc (“Sensys Networks”). The acquisition was previously announced on May 3, 2019. The purchase price was USD 16 million on a debt and cash free basis with adjustment of net working capital as of the closing date against normalized net working capital.

Sensys Networks

Sensys Networks, established 2003, is a leading provider of advanced data solutions for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Sensys Networks offers a comprehensive wireless platform, addressing today’s most challenging traffic and parking data needs. This end-to-end solution, comprised of sensors, edge gateways and highly sophisticated data management software (SNAPS), has been deployed in hundreds of cities globally, addressing the growing need for data driven traffic and parking solutions.

Sensys Networks is headquartered in Berkeley, California, and is led by industry veterans who bring years of experience in wireless communications, carrier grade infrastructure, enterprise software and transportation management for the public sector.

Sales for 2018 was approx. USD 15 million with an EBITDA of approx. – USD 1.7 million. After cost reductions, implemented during January 2019, the EBITDA for Sensys Networks 2019 is expected to be positive.

Background and acquisition rationale

The past year confirms the validity of the TagMaster’s chosen strategy of focusing on growth within the Traffic Solutions business segment. While Rail projects demonstrate high profitability, the major growth is in Traffic Solutions. Cities and other densely-populated areas worldwide face challenges of rapid growth, rising populations, climate change, declining air quality and forced urban development, which places new demands on transportation systems. Meeting these challenges requires Smart City solutions that streamline traffic and transportation systems, making day-to-day life simpler, safer and more efficient.

Sensys Networks’ products are deployed as part of several ITS applications including Traffic Signal Control, Traveler Information Systems, Tolling and Road Pricing, Safety and Enforcement. The ITS market is estimated to be $66B globally by 2024[1], with growth driven largely by the increasing global demand for Smart City solutions.

”TagMaster is very excited about this important step in our growth strategy, as Sensys Networks makes us stronger in the ITS and Smart City markets. With the combined expertise of Sensys Networks and TagMaster, we have excellent revenue growth opportunities in both US and European markets” says Jonas Svensson, CEO, TagMaster.

Commenting on the acquisition, Amine Haoui, Sensys Networks CEO, said “We are very pleased to be joining the TagMaster group. We recognise and welcome the strength that the union will bring to both brands and the synergies that are immediately apparent with the other TagMaster companies.”

The combined company

Both Sensys Networks and TagMaster are leading technology providers in the Smart Cities sector, selling direct and through channel partners to end users such as authorities and road operators.

The acquisition provides the companies with an enhanced capacity for creating future products and solutions in the US and Europe, as well as a platform to deliver next-generation infrastructure to smartphone (“I2X”) applications for connected travelers and autonomous vehicles. I2X has significant market potential from agencies, OEMs, fleets and other smartphone enabled travelers.

The combined entity will have enhanced scale and reach with 2018 proforma revenue and EBITDA of SEK 326 million and SEK -2.7 million respectively. The EBITDA for 2019 is expected to be positive.


The acquisition was funded through a combination of debt facilities, an equity issue with preferential rights to existing shareholders and a directed equity issue with deviation from existing shareholders preferential rights. The debt facility amounted to USD 5,7 million and the remaining part of the purchase price was financed through the equity issues of approx. SEK 130 million.


Cirio Advokatbyrå is legal adviser to TagMaster in connection with the acquisition and the equity financing, Mayer Brown LLP is legal advisor in connection with the acquisition and Redeye AB is acting financial advisor in connection with the equity financing.

INDECT’s unique fish-eye surveillance module allows clients to monitor all aspects of the parking garage not just the parking space

June 11, 2019


INDECT’s unique fish-eye surveillance module allows clients to monitor all aspects of the parking garage not just the parking space



(Boston MA, June 10, 2019) INDECT USA, the industry’s leading provider of parking guidance systems, today reveals their unique, fish-eye surveillance module to the US market.


Unlike any other parking guidance cameras on the market, the INDECT surveillance module offers ultra-high definition, full-colour images that are streamed in real-time, providing complete coverage of the entire parking garage, not just the parking space.


“One of the best features of our fish-eye surveillance module is that you can monitor activity anywhere in the garage, at any time,” said Dale Fowler, President of INDECT USA.


“Most parking guidance cameras focus on the parking spaces in the immediate vicinity of the sensor but this doesn’t tell you what’s going on in the rest of the garage.” said Fowler. “You get a nice image of a parked car or a vacant space but you miss out on any activity of interest that might be happening in the stairwells, doorways or driveways.”


“If a theft or vandalism occurs, standard parking guidance cameras might capture an image of the perpetrator but they don’t provide any information about where the person entered the garage or how they exited.” he explained.


“Were they working alone or as part of a team? Where were the security personnel at the time of the incident? All this information is extremely important, not just for catching the person responsible but to make sure it doesn’t happen again.” said Fowler.


The surveillance module is available as an add-on to the UPSOLUT parking guidance system. It is installed directly underneath the sensor but within the IP67 rated housing, making it extremely discrete as well as completely protected from dust, dirt and water.


According to Fowler, it is this unique placement, combined with the fish-eye lens, that enables the module to capture such a wide view. It is not necessary to have the modules installed on every sensor to achieve 100% coverage. Placing them at key position points such as intersections, stairwells, doorways and other pedestrian areas, is enough to provide a complete picture of the garage.


The surveillance module is available in a choice of 3 or 5 megapixels with up to 2592 x 1944 QSXGA full colour image resolution and is capable of streaming at 26 frames/second. This is far superior to the industry standard, which remains at 720 x 480 VGA resolution. The module is also ONVIF compatible so INDECT is able to route all footage directly into the client’s existing, on-site security system.


“Why have two security systems?” said Fowler. “It makes much more sense to view and record the garage footage from within the existing security system. This way the regular security personnel are able to monitor garage activity as part of the whole security operation. They can even work the camera’s pan/tilt/zoom function from within their regular software.”


The surveillance module is ideal for any site that wants to extend their existing security into the garage. This includes universities, airports, casinos, entertainment complexes and shopping malls.


The INDECT surveillance module is currently installed at The Dubai Mall in Dubai.




INDECT is the leading provider of parking guidance systems. INDECT’s systems combine the most advanced parking space sensors with industry-leading data management technology to offer drivers a safer, more convenient parking experience while helping parking owners operate their parking assets more efficiently and profitably.

Honk Taps Into the Future with World’s First Virtual Parking Meter

June 11, 2019


Honk Taps Into the Future with World’s First Virtual Parking Meter



Honk Leverages NFC Tap-to-Pay Technology and Apple Pay to Bring Contactless Payment to Parking


ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA, June 10, 2019 – Today, at the International Parking and Mobility Institute Conference & Expo, HonkMobile (Honk), the fastest and most convenient way to find and pay for parking, unveiled its newest product: the world’s first virtual parking meter – HonkTAP. Honk’s virtual parking meter uses NFC technology and ApplePay to allow drivers to pay for parking with just a tap of their iPhone. Once parked, drivers simply tap their iPhone on the posted NFC signage and walk away, knowing that their parking ispaid.

Honk leverages NFC tags to immediately bring up Apple Pay on iPhone. Users can skip the step of downloading an app or registering for an account – making paying for parking infinitely faster and frictionless.

Drivers simply tap their iPhone on the NFC-enabled signage – which can be as simple as a sticker or as elaborate as a custom sign – input their license plate number and select the amount of parking time desired on the guest checkout screen, and pay with Apple Pay. Drivers can opt-in to receive text notifications when their parking is set to expire, and can add time remotely from their iPhone. Purchase history, changing vehicles and many other features can be accessed by signing up for a free Honkaccount.

With HonkTAP, parking operators no longer require bulky and expensive payment terminals that can be exposed to vandalism, and experience periods of down time and long lines of drivers waiting to pay. Instead, customized, NFC-enabled signs and structures can be used throughout parking locations, saving tens of thousands of dollars, giving customers even more choice and accessibility in parking paymentoptions.

HonkTAP is now live in select cities across North America, with 10,000 HonkTAP signs and structures to be installed across 20 cities in Canada and the US by the end of summer 2019.

“HonkTAP marks an entirely new era for parking,” said Michael Back, Honk Founder & CEO. “Our patent pending technology allows drivers to bypass the parking meter, an app download or user registration, and simply purchase parking with a tap of their iPhone. Our novel approach gives drivers the fastest and easiest way to pay for parking on site. This isn’t just a win for drivers – the affordability and ease of integration into parking operations makes HonkTAP the most scalable parking solution on the market today – it costs up to 95% less than your typical parking hardware. No power costs, data charges, paper supplies and zero machine downtime make HonkTAP a game-changer.”

About HonkMobile

Honk is North America’s leading provider of both on-demand mobile payments and advance reservations for parking. Honk has been creating solutions to avoid and eliminate the traditional parking meter for years. First, with their innovative app, then Honk KIO – a low-cost payment kiosk


aligned with the app, and now HonkTAP rounds out their family of products to serve the needs of all drivers, parking operators and real estate owners whenever and however they require.


Honk sourced the NFC tags from Smartrac, a global leader in NFC technology, when building out the product to ensure the highest level of tap functionality.

Honk is already accepted at over 2,000 locations representing 250,000 parking spaces across Canada and the United States. With the touch of a button, motorists can pay for parking anywhere Honk is accepted across North America.
