Our video intercoms can bolt-on or integrate with any new or existing PARCS kiosk.
Parker Video Intercoms bolt-on or integrate with your new or existing PARCS kiosks in entry lanes, exit lanes or pay-on-foot stations. We currently have installations “live” in the U.S. on the following PARCS equipment: Amano McGann, FlashParking, TIBA, T2, SkiData, WPS and more.
Each video intercom hardware installation requires our a “Video Display” and “Brain,” unless it is an integrated solution like FlashParking. See below for more information on each component.
The Video Display features a 1080p HD LCD screen that performs well in low and under-cover light conditions. An optional hood is available for direct-light, outdoor applications. The Parker Video Display is an all-weather, highly durable exterior casing that can stand up to abuse from vandals and the normal wear-and-tear of day-to-day operations. The polyvinyl cover over the screen is highly scratch resistance and inexpensively swapped out in the event of damage.
The Brain is the computer control module of the Parker hardware platform. The Brain is where your “help” button, speaker, microphone and Video Display connect. The Brain can also connect to control relays for raising the gate, vending a lost ticket and more – depending on the device and location requirements. The Brain connects to the Internet via a Cat5e cable that is wired back to your Internet router. It requires local 110V power.
Connecting to the Cloud
The Parker Brain is the central control for the local PARCS device. Once you have connected the Brain with an Internet connection (1.5 MB up/down speed recommended for HD video), the equipment self-configures with our Call Center Software to activate the location.
From this point forward, when the “help” button is pressed on a Parker-enabled PARCS kiosk, the call lands in our cloud-based platform, and is answered by a well-informed, patient CSR in our 24/7 Call Center.
Have More Questions?
In addition to our two-way video intercoms, we also offer audio-only intercoms. Many of our clients will use a combination of both in their facilities, based on the type of lane (entry v. exit, monthly v. transient).
