TKH Security’s Park Assist Parking Guidance System to be Deployed at Fresno Yosemite International Airport

 

CHESHIRE, CT – – TKH Security’s Parking Guidance System (PGS) will be deployed at Fresno Yosemite International Airport’s new four-level parking garage. Located in Fresno, CA, Fresno Yosemite International is the primary commercial airport for California’s Central Valley and three national parks: Yosemite, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon. Complete with the M4 smart-sensor system, this parking facility will support increased traffic as passengers return to travel, ensuring an unparalleled parking experience from entry to exit.

Fresno Yosemite International, along with the Design-Build General Contractor, Overaa Construction, chose to implement TKH Security’s proprietary camera-based M4 PGS to help optimize space utilization and increase garage efficiency by streamlining the parking journey. The smart-sensor PGS is designed to help parkers quickly locate available parking spaces within the facility. This system utilizes digital wayfinding signage and bright LED signal lights to indicate if spaces are available and where they are located before entering the facility, significantly reducing search and park times for travelers and removing traffic congestion, confusion, and stress from the parking experience.

The M4 PGS was selected for this project due to its user-friendly interface and robust capabilities in an airport environment, TKH Security’s reputation as an industry-leading technology provider, and the flexibility to customize the system’s design to achieve the airport’s unique needs.

Unlike many installations, this site did not use the traditional Park Assist channeling to secure the system in place. Instead, the track and cabling were embedded in the facility’s existing architecture, and the sensors will be suspended directly from the ceiling for a simple, clean design.

Along with TKH Security’s exclusive M4 technology, the airport’s PGS will also come equipped with the popular Park Finder™ software add-on.

The customer-centric Park Finder™ module ensures that guests can easily pinpoint their vehicle upon returning to the garage. Travelers simply enter their license plate number into the Park Finder system and are guided to the exact location of their vehicle. The Find Your Car™ locator searches the database of parked cars and identifies the correct license plate number and corresponding vehicle, providing step-by-step directions on how to get to the car.

​​​​”TKH Security is very excited to work with Overaa and Walker Consultants to design this completely embedded M4 system. This project not only illustrates our system’s versatility but also demonstrates our continued commitment to designing parking guidance technology that suites each of our client’s specific requirements”. Said Will Cai, Regional Account Manager.

Working with Overaa and Walker Consultants, the project is already underway and scheduled for completion by September.

TKH Security Introduces its Newest Smart-Sensor Parking Guidance System: PE360

 

CHESHIRE, CONNECTICUT – May 25th, 2021 – TKH Security is excited to introduce the latest addition to its parking guidance product lines, the PE360 Smart-Sensor parking guidance system (PGS).

This new PGS incorporates vehicle sensing, high-tech guidance, and sitewide surveillance. The PE360 sensors, designed with a 360° field of vision, have complete visibility throughout the garage. Each sensor can capture and stream video and images to our proprietary management system while also collecting rich occupancy data to help increase garage efficiency.​​​​

In announcing the launch of the PE360, Gary Neff, President at TKH Security, said, “The PE360 will be the first product that combines Park Assist and ParkEyes technology in one solution. With the ability to function with both systems, it shows the power of our merged business as we continue to drive our innovative solutions as TKH Security”.

Designed to compete with low-cost ultrasonic systems, the PE360 camera-based PGS offers a lighter infrastructure and easier installation. It can be quickly installed, with little disruption and minimal effect on daily operations. One sensor, installed above the driving lane to monitor spaces on each side, can observe up to 6 parking bays. This unique vantage point offers unobstructed views of parked vehicles – while providing parkers with clear sightlines for easy guidance and navigation.

Leveraging Park Assist and ParkEyes’ industry-leading experience, the PE360 utilizes bright RGB LED indicators to deliver seamless guidance, while the sensor captures and stores video footage and images on demand or 24/7, whichever is preferred. With a 360° field of vision, the sensors, driven by a powerful software platform, provide real-time video surveillance and streaming, video playback, and the ability to extract and save videos to enhance the parking facility’s safety and security.

This latest sensor can operate in both the ParkEyes and Park Assist parking guidance systems with either software platforms, ensuring ultimate flexibility and control for customers around the globe.

Scott Dubois, Vice President of Product Management, added, “With the ability to function in ParkEyes’ software suite as well as Park Assist’s INX-driven ecosystem, the camera-based PE360 combines simplified implementation and commissioning, as we continue to add functionality in our new software platform to extract the value from this video-based system”.

The PE360 provides all the advantages of an ultrasonic system with the added benefits of advanced camera-based guidance, unprecedented 360° sitewide surveillance, and the highest level of security the parking industry has ever seen. This sensor bridges the gap for garage owners and operators eager to switch from a basic ultrasonic or single space PGS to a camera-based guidance system.

TKH Security Brings State-of-the-Art Parking Guidance to ilani

 

CHESHIRE, CT – May 6th, 2021 – TKH Security (formerly Park Assist) recently finished installing its advanced-tech M4 Smart-Sensor Parking Guidance System (PGS) at ilani, the Pacific Northwest premier gaming, dining, entertainment and meeting destination in Ridgefield, Washington. Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE), the resort’s managing partner, selected TKH Security for ilani along with its flagship property, Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. ilani is located minutes from Portland, Oregon, and it is one of the largest casino resorts in the Northwest. As part of the resort’s expansion, a 2,700-space parking facility was constructed. Designed to facilitate increased traffic flow during major events and peak business hours, this garage also supports future expansion plans. The M4 PGS will enhance the garage, elevating the guest experience and public safety by offering the latest technology in parking guidance.

ilani’s new PGS includes several popular software integrations, including Park Finder™, Park Surveillance™, and Park Alerts™, ensuring guests are treated to unparalleled parking guidance from entry to exit.

As parkers arrive at the facility, the M4 PGS helps them easily navigate the garage, indicating where spaces are available on each level. Utilizing color-coded LED lights, the M4 sensor indicates which spots are open and directs parkers to these specific spaces. This intelligent system enhances the user experience by significantly reducing the search and park times for guests while streamlining traffic and relieving congestion to ensure the facility operates at maximum efficiency.

As visitors prepare to exit the property, the guest-centric Park Finder software module utilizes LPR (license plate recognition) technology to ensure that they can quickly pinpoint their vehicle. Guests can simply enter their license plate number into a Park Finder enabled kiosk, and the Find Your Car™ locator searches a database of parked vehicles in the garage, identifies the correct license plate number and corresponding vehicle, and provides step-by-step directions to get to the car.

Park Surveillance and Park Alerts provide increased surveillance, maximized control, and extra security to this parking facility. The Park Surveillance integration enables the M4 sensors to capture streaming video of any movement in or around parking bays. With clear views of each parking bay and the surrounding space between vehicles, the M4 cameras can effectively provide continuous surveillance, document all garage activity, and guard against criminal activities such as theft, vandalism, and unwanted intruders. Additionally, the Park Alerts add-on allows parking management to set automated time and license plate-based rules and alerts that help staff control garage activity, enforce parking policy, and respond to critical events.

“TKH Security was thrilled to have the opportunity to install this new parking guidance system at ilani. As it is one of the largest casino resorts in the Northwest, it was imperative for us to provide a solution that would not only improve each customer’s parking journey but increase security and efficiency of the facility as well.” Said Will Cai, Regional Account Manager.

TKH Security worked as a subcontractor to the General Contractor, Swinerton.

Recently completed, the garage is open, and the PGS is ready for public use.

TKH Security’s Parking Guidance Solution Set to Deliver a World-Class Parking Experience at Arsenal Yards

 

 

CHESHIRE, CT – – TKH Security (formerly Park Assist) has been awarded the parking guidance system (PGS) contract for Arsenal Yards in Watertown, Massachusetts. Arsenal Yards, the joint development of Boylston Properties and The Wilder Companies, is a 1 million-square-foot state-of-the-art mixed-use development in the heart of Watertown’s East End. With unique dining, boutiques, brand-name retail shops, entertainment, a Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton, modern apartments, and three eventual life science buildings, this destination caters to various employees, residents, and visitors. Eager to enhance the parking journey at this new development and provide additional guidance and security, Boylston Properties selected TKH Security to install its M4 system in its second garage at Arsenal Yards, ensuring that all patrons are treated to a world-class parking experience.

As guests arrive at the facility, the camera-based smart-sensor system helps parkers navigate two garages on site. The bright, color-coded LED light rings on the smart-sensors signal which spaces are available and occupied using red and green lights. This makes the parking process easier and more efficient for the end-user, and it helps decrease traffic congestion and reduces the time visitors spend searching for parking.

The M4 system is driven by TKH Security’s new software platform, INX™.  This cloud-based user interface provides operators with real-time data, dashboards, historical reports, and comparative analyses to improve the facility’s parker experience and operational efficiencies. This technology platform also encompasses business intelligence modules, service and support access, and optional applications for enhanced functionality and greater control. Park Finder™ and Park Alerts™, two of the most popular Park Assist software modules, are also available via INX.

The Park Finder extension utilizes License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology to ensure that guests can quickly pinpoint their vehicle upon returning to the garage. By simply entering their license plate number into the system, visitors can use the Find Your Car™ locator to search the garage’s vehicle database and identify the correct license plate number and corresponding vehicle. From there, Park Finder provides detailed directions on how to reach the car.

Additionally, the Park Alerts software module allows operators to set automated rules and alerts that bring important events to their attention. Utilizing time and license plate-based alerts, management can easily track transient parking, as well as unwanted behaviors or policy violations, to help enhance customer safety.

“Arsenal Yards will be a fantastic example of how effective smart building technology is a key driver for improving customer mobility and property efficiency. TKH Security is excited to be a part of this mission to continue enhancing the customer experience through new innovations.” Said Robert Wishart, Regional Account Manager, Northeast.

Working with Universal Automation (UA), the installation is scheduled to be ready for use by the summer.

Park Assist: Transforming Parking at Los Angeles International Airport with an M4 Smart-Sensor System

Park Assit: Transforming Parking at Los Angeles International Airport with an M4 Smart-Sensor System

 

 

 

CHESHIRE, CT – – TKH Security (Park Assist) has been awarded the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract for Los Angeles International Airport’s (LAX) new parking facility. LAX is one of the busiest airports in the U.S. This new garage, an approximately 4,300 stall parking structure, will provide drop-off/pick-up locations and short and long-term parking options. The four-story parking structure will be the first component of LAX’s Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP), opening in 2021. Once completed, this state-of-the-art facility is expected to be the new front door to LAX. Utilizing TKH Security’s M4 smart-sensor system ensures that each traveler will be treated to next-generation guidance from entry to exit, helping to streamline departures and remove additional stress from the airport parking journey.

Given TKH Security’s (Park Assist’s) experience as a leader in the parking sector, LAX chose to implement the proprietary camera-based M4 PGS to monitor occupancy and provide guidance throughout the garage. Designed to help parkers quickly and easily locate available parking spaces within the facility, the M4 system directs hurried travelers through the garage by indicating which spaces are available with color-coded LED lights. This not only enhances the customer experience by significantly reducing the search and park times for travelers, but it also improves traffic flow and relieves congestion to ensure the facility is operating at maximum efficiency.

Along with TKH Security’s exclusive M4 technology, the Airport’s PGS will also come equipped with several software add-ons including, Park Select-Rate™, Park Finder™, and Park Alerts™.

The customer-centric Park Finder software module utilizes LPR (license plate recognition) technology to ensure that parkers can easily pinpoint their vehicle upon returning from travel. Using a Park Finder enabled pay station, travelers enter their license plate number into the system and are guided to their vehicle. The Find Your Car locator searches a database of parked vehicles in the garage, identifies the correct license plate number and corresponding vehicle, and provides step-by-step directions to get to the car.

Additionally, Park Select-Rate allows parking management to easily designate spaces for premium pricing. Once a vehicle enters a premium space, the smart-sensor feeds the vehicle ID and location data to the Parking Access and Revenue Control Systems (PARCS) – which then applies the premium rate to the associated vehicle. This provides a VIP experience for the end-user and allows the Airport to create value for frequent flyers while driving new revenue streams.

Park Alerts increases control and security in the garage. This software extension allows parking management to set automated time and license plate-based rules and alerts that help staff regulate activity in the facility, enabling management to respond to any violations quickly.

“It is great to see TKH Security (formerly Park Assist) help another West Coast top 10 U.S. airport enhance its parking experience. The M4 system provides equal benefits to LAX and its travelers, ensuring that travelers are treated to the highest level of guidance while optimizing how the parking facility operates.” Said Will Cai, Regional Account Manager.

The project is already underway and targeted for completion by the end of May 2021.

Park Assist: Increasing Parking Safety at People’s Trust Insurance Company with an M4 Smart-Sensor System

 

 

CHESHIRE, CT – Park Assist, recently merged with TKH Security, has been selected to install its camera-based M4 smart-sensor Parking Guidance System (PGS) at People’s Trust Insurance Company’s corporate campus. Located in Deerfield Beach, FL, People’s Trust Insurance Company is one of Florida’s top-selling homeowner insurance companies. In a fresh campus expansion, it built a brand new garage with over 500 spaces. The garage construction was completed in August of 2020 and is restricted to employees only.

Given the long-standing and strong local presence TKH Security (Park Assist) has in Florida and its proven ability to quickly deliver on projects, People’s Trust selected TKH Security (Park Assist) to elevate the employee parking experience.

Eager to enhance parking while improving its employee garage’s security, People’s Trust chose to add both the Park Alerts™ and Park Surveillance™ software modules to its PGS to protect its employees and ease any security concerns.

Upon entry, TKH Security’s Park Assist PGS is used to help quickly guide employees to available parking spaces using color-coded smart-sensors and digital wayfinding signage. This continually updated guidance information enables parkers to decide on the best location to park at any given moment.

While the M4 PGS helps increase parker satisfaction and enhances garage efficiency, the Park Alerts and Park Surveillance software add-ons improve garage security and control. The camera-based smart-sensors have a unique vantage point of the parking facility. With unobstructed views of the areas in and around the bays as well as the spaces in between vehicles, the Park Surveillance software module enables these sensors to capture and store streaming video of any motion in the garage, protecting against theft, vandalism, unwelcome intrusions, and other criminal activities. Additionally, the Park Alerts software extension allows parking management to set automated rules and alerts that help staff enforce policies and remain vigilant about parking abuse, unwanted activity, and policy violations within the garage.

“People’s Trust Insurance Company was a special project for our team. Despite ongoing COVID-19 challenges, People’s Trust truly believed TKH Security (formerly Park Assist) could deliver a state-of-the-art camera-based system and improve peace of mind for all employees and staff. Ownership was particularly looking forward to utilizing our Park Surveillance feature to enhance security for its newest asset. We are delighted to be a part of this exciting new project and look forward to future expansions on campus.” – said Thomas Alexander, National Channel Manager.

Site work began in October and is slated for completion by the end of February.

This is the first corporate campus project TKH Security (Park Assist) has been awarded in Florida, but its 10th installation throughout the state.

TKH Security’s Park Assist Parking Guidance Solution is Set to Go Live at Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center Garage

TKH Security’s Park Assist Parking Guidance Solution is Set to Go Live at Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center Garage

 

 

 

CHESHIRE, CT  – Park Assist, recently merged with TKH Security, installed its Parking Guidance System (PGS) at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in the Wexner Medical Center Garage at the end of 2020. This new technology, now ready to go live, will bring world-class parking and next-level guidance to the patient experience. With the anticipated opening of ~1,900 parking spaces to better serve the growing medical campus, the M4 smart-sensor system will support this expansion.

The installation will include the proprietary M4 system, custom enclosed wayfinding signage, the new INX™ software platform, Park Finder™, and Park Alerts™.

From the moment patients and visitors enter the garage, digital wayfinding signage guides them, indicating where there are available spaces. Continuously updated with information collected from the sensors, these signs provide simplified data to help parkers make informed decisions. As drivers make their way through the facility, the camera based smart-sensor system helps parkers navigate the garage. Equipped with bright, color-coded LED light rings, the smart-sensors signal which spaces are available and which are occupied using red and green lights. This not only makes the parking process easier and more efficient for the end-user, but it helps to decrease traffic congestion and reduce the amount of time patients and visitors spend searching for parking.

TKH Security’s new Park Assist software platform, INX, is a cloud-based user interface that will provide garage operators with real-time data collected by the M4 system using dashboards, historical reports and comparative analyses to help improve the facility’s parker experience, operational efficiencies and drive new revenue opportunities. This technology platform also encompasses business intelligence modules, service and support access, and optional applications for enhanced functionality and greater control. Park Finder and Park Alerts, two of the most popular Park Assist software modules, are now also available via INX.

The customer-centric Park Finder extension utilizes License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology to ensure that guests can easily pinpoint their vehicle upon returning to the garage. Using either a mobile app or a Park Finder enabled kiosk, patients and visitors will be able to enter their license plate number into the system. The Find Your Car™ locator then searches a database of vehicles in the garage and identifies the correct license plate number and corresponding vehicle, providing step-by-step directions on how to reach the car.

Additionally, the Park Alerts software module allows operators to set automated rules and alerts that bring important events to their attention. If any parking policies are violated (overstayed vehicles in time-limited spaces, misuse of restricted or premium spaces, etc.), management will be immediately notified so they can take the appropriate action, helping parking management quickly react to any unwanted behaviors and enforce the policies that keep their garage running smoothly.

“Utilizing automated technology to curate an unparalleled parking experience with a focus on wayfinding and ease of access, TKH Security (formerly Park Assist) is committed to reducing parking hesitations at the doorstep of the hospital journey.” Said Robert Wishart, Regional Account Manager, Northeast.

Working with Denier Electric, a seasoned and proven TKH Security installation partner in Ohio, the project is complete and ready for use.
