INDECT USA chosen as the preferred parking guidance system for The Village at Totem Lake, Washington.





North Kirkland, WA (January 30, 2019) INDECT USA has been chosen as the preferred parking guidance system for Washington’s new luxury lifestyle center, The Village, located at Totem Lake.




A total of 1625 INDECT ultrasonic sensors with extended LED lights will be installed to help guide residents and shoppers quickly and easily to the nearest available space.


“Extended LED lights are a popular choice for large parking garages as they make it easy for drivers to spot the vacant spaces even from a distance,” said Dale Fowler, President of INDECT USA. “Having a light above every space takes the guess work out of finding a spot and promotes trust in the system’s accuracy.”


When complete, The Village will be a massive multimodal complex, comprising of approximately 400,000 square feet of fashionable retail boutiques, exceptional restaurants, luxury rental units, a premium cinema and numerous landscaped public spaces.


Designed to reproduce the close community of a small village with the sophistication of a modern city, the new lifestyle center aims to provide residents and visitors with a superior social experience.


“We have installed the INDECT parking guidance system at a number of high-end retail and entertainment complexes, including Houston’s prestigious City Centre, and the feedback has been excellent.” said Derek Frantz, Head of Business Development at Parking Guidance Systems (PGS).


“Modern luxury destinations, such as The Village, want to give people the best experience possible and because that experience starts from the moment they enter the parking garage, it’s important to get it right.” he said.


According to Dale Fowler, the parking garage is effectively the welcoming center of the entire complex. When a driver is greeted with clear signage and quickly directed to the nearest available space, they arrive in a good mood and ready to enjoy whatever the center has to offer.


The parking guidance system designed for The Village will use different colored LEDs to indicate the status of each space: green for available, red for occupied and blue for ADA. The lights will be clearly visible from several hundred yards away and signs at the end of each driving aisle will indicate the number and type of spaces available in each parking aisle.


“The INDECT system is the most accurate and reliable system on the market.” said Fowler. “Just follow the directions and you will find a space. First time, every time. It’s as easy as that.”


The parking guidance installation is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2019.
