IP Bullet Camera Interface

Selection of suitable IP cameras to interface to BeParking system is time consuming task. There are so many IP cameras from many different surveillance cameras manufacturers available in the market, which one would best suit the CPMS system. Each IP camera when running will generate video stream and this stream will feed in the BeParking ALPR software service to process and analyse the picture to recognize the number plate if any.
 
There is no need to use expensive ALPR integrated camera, because the ALPR software engine already integrated in BeParking server.
 
The good camera will generate good quality high resolution picture frame in any condition like day time or night time.
 
After trial of several different models, we found out that several cheaper camera models can provide picture frame as good as more expensive cameras.
 
Here is the list of several camera models that interface well to BeParking system: Hikvision DS-2CD5A26G0-IZ, Geovision GV-TBL4710.
 
IP camera uses at each gate tested with high end  model of Hikvision like DS-2CD5A26G0-IZS at day and night time shows very high accuracy (above 96%).  The Geovision GV-TBL4710 has anti-vandalism IK10 protection.
 
At Entry Gate, car can move at speed limit between 20 – 40Km/h, BeParking still recognize the number plate successfully, that allows traffic at entry gate goes smoothly.

Web based management Software

 

 

The Web Interface Software can be hosted at local LAN network or Cloud based network and provides User Interface for manage all daily operations remotely such as check reports, check car park fee daily sales, check membership accounts, etc. The Cloud based Software provides interactive interface to Driver Phone App for Parking Payment and check parking status or any promotion from Car park Owner.

Integrated absolute encoder, which ensures greater precision in slowdowns and advanced control of the boom movement. Serial connection with SIS accessory data sheet, for fast and easy connection for operation in paired boom mode.

Option to install FTC.S photocells using concealed system so that they are perfectly integrated.

Safe performance and reliability
The FAAC B680H has a Hybrid heart which, together with its “everlasting” springs, allows it to exceed 2,000,000 cycles of continuous-use, raising 8 m beams in less than 6 seconds, in total safety, thanks to the reverse on contact feature.
