Vehicle access system

Controlling vehicle access is one of the keys to providing security services in hotels, resorts, parking lots, government, medical and educational facilities. However, in the event of a power outage, Internet interruption, or network attack, the signal that controls vehicle access will be easily interrupted. Then, facility managers and security personnel cannot track visitors, and it is difficult to prevent unauthorized vehicles from visiting the community or parking lot. In addition, the vehicle access system may also lose important data.

Today, most companies believe that customer satisfaction is the most important, and this is also true when it comes to vehicle access. When the system fails or runs below expectations, customers will complain about it. Later, they will post on social media. Then, these customer opinions may have an impact on business reputation. At the same time, the current situation of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) has inadvertently raised consumer expectations for safety and contactless interaction.

In addition to customer satisfaction, companies also rely on the effectiveness of vehicle access systems to obtain substantial revenue. The size of the US parking lot and garage market in 2020 is 9 billion US dollars, involving 16,021 companies, employing 142,726 people.

Modern RFID vehicle access systems provide new opportunities to meet customer expectations and business goals. Even during power outages, they can provide continuous security access control to ensure the safety, efficiency, and reliability of closed societies and parking lots.

Shortcomings

From an economic point of view, the continued use of existing vehicle access systems seems to be a sensible move. After all, the system can operate most of the time, and at the same time, it takes more cost to develop a new system. However, backward technologies such as key cards, magnetic strip cards, and personnel-controlled access control are difficult to meet the modern development conditions of vehicle access systems. In fact, they are outdated. In some cases, it is difficult for car owners to find some hardware in the old vehicle access system. In addition, these backward technologies are difficult to meet modern needs because they lack the reliability and safety measures required by the global public to access vehicles.

Vehicle access

Traditional technology VS RFID technology

Recognizing license plates is one of the most commonly used techniques for vehicle access. When the certificates and license plates are available, then tolls, parking fees and tolls are reduced. However, dirt, glare, or man-made changes may make it difficult for traditional vehicle access systems to recognize license plates.

In fact, the traditional vehicle access system is vulnerable to hacker attacks, which leads to the fact that secure access is not reliable. Once the shared keyboard PINs quickly get out of control, it is easy for hackers to sniff out and retransmit the garage door-style radio signal, so the license plate and bar code of the vehicle can easily be copied and used by them.

In a typical charging case, MassDOT found that when RFID systems are installed in gated communities and parking lots, compared with the previous license plate recognition system, the accuracy of the license plate recognition is improved to 99%.

Contactless access

Before COVID-19, the market for contactless access was expanding, and during the pandemic of the new crown virus, it became more important in all walks of life, especially in the parking lot business.

Therefore, companies have made fundamental adjustments in order to retain customers based on the business style of consumption expectations. The parking lot is usually the customer's first impression of the business provided by a company, so it must give a positive impression. Due to the pandemic of the new crown virus, customers prefer contactless access to parking lots and community gates, and non-contact payment of related charges. Today, 84% of consumers are using contactless parking services, and 86% hope that companies continue to provide such parking services. This shows that consumers give priority to companies that provide contactless services

In the first quarter of 2020, 79% of consumers around the world used contactless payments due to the spread of the new crown virus. Therefore, global contactless transactions achieved a 40% growth rate. In addition, 1 in 6 consumers stated that they would not do business with institutions that do not have digital payment options.

RFID equipment and offline management

Improve the reliability of collected data

The usage of the vehicle identification system is different, and the outstanding problem of the closed community vehicle identification system is that when the vehicle access control system is closed, data collection will be stopped, and the gate will not be opened until the system backup is completed. Then, the typical solution is to keep the door open, but this obviously runs counter to the security purpose of the access control solution. System downtime not only causes safety issues for staff and community members, but also frustrates community visitors.

A well-designed RFID vehicle access solution can meet the needs of customers to access vehicle systems with confidence. Choose a PoE-enabled system that provides offline management and backup gate power to provide customers with maximum reliability.

The vehicle access system also needs to provide services for enterprises to facilitate staff management of vehicles. With reliable software and RFID tags, this allows employees to quickly program or reprogram, while simply making related reports. The RFID tag can be affixed to the rearview mirror, or it can be affixed to the windshield, headlight or license plate. RFID tags can also be reused, which undoubtedly saves the cost of tags for vehicle access systems.

Nowadays, most companies are brand-centric, and the advantage of RFID vehicle access system is that it can establish a good brand for the company.

In short, in order to obtain maximum customer satisfaction, data reliability and security, and minimum downtime, it makes sense to upgrade modern RFID vehicle access systems. A reputable integrator will listen to customer needs, re-adjust the existing components of the vehicle access system as much as possible, and select equipment and software that can bring maximum accuracy, uptime and customer satisfaction.
