Burlingame, CA (April 24, 2017)— Sentry Control Systems, America’s leading provider of parking solutions and technology, announced today that the company is now maintaining a new office in the San Francisco suburb of Burlingame, California. Sentry installs and services many of the parking industry’s most popular and advanced technologies, including SKIDATA parking access and revenue control equipment (PARCS), Frogparking sensors and analytic software, INDECT parking guidance systems, and Global Parking Solutions multi-space meters. With this expansion, Sentry becomes SKIDATA’s exclusive distribution and servicing representative in the Bay Area. Sentry is a subsidiary of SKIDATA.



“We have been active in the Bay Area for a long time, so it made sense to establish a permanent presence here,” said Lester Mascon, executive vice president of Sentry Control Systems. “Parking has been transformed by the introduction of many new technologies over the past decade, and Sentry is the recognized leader when it comes to the sale and servicing of the industry’s most important technologies. It’s exciting to be here, in the heart of America’s technology industry.”


The new San Francisco office already services parking technology suites for numerous Bay Area businesses, including many of the area’s largest and best-known parking operators. Sentry recently completed the installation of a new parking package at famous PIER 39 in San Francisco.


Sentry’s parent company, SKIDATA, Inc., was selected by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) last year to upgrade 22 parking garages with a combined total of more than 15,000 spaces throughout the city. Sentry will play a key role in servicing the contract, which included upgrades to Parking Access & Revenue Control Systems, coordination with the City’s SF Park Program, and the introduction of a state-of-the-art License Plate Recognition (LPR) system to secure revenue, enhance security, and introduce exciting new customer service amenities.
