Factors to take into account include selecting the cameras, their ideal number and installation location, a reliable power source, a network connection, camera configuration, and the actual installation on site.
Any camera will do. Parquery can use images from any Internet Protocol (IP) camera, including standard cameras, CCTV cameras, webcams and more. We have worked with all major brands including Axis, Bosch, Dahua, Hikvision, Samsung, Wenhua and many others.
Parquery detects objects in both images and video streams from any camera. All we need is the footage they produce. For video cameras, we sample and analyse the video stream at the interval the client requires, for example, every 10 seconds, once a minute, every 5 minutes, etc.
If you have no cameras installed yet, Parquery will help you identify the optimal number and most effective locations to cover your parking area. All we require from you is a map of your parking areas and the available installation height.
Starting from there, we compute a simulation of the camera views to determine how many cameras we need and where to install them. We base our simulation on a selection of common off-the-shelf cameras. The goal is to cover the entire parking area with the minimum number of cameras. This translates directly into saving you money: we monitor as many parking spots as possible with as few cameras as possible.
Ensure a reliable power source, for example, connect to the public electricity supply by cable or install solar panels.
Ideally, the cameras will be mounted on buildings, tall posts or atop street lamps. Once connected to a power source and running, the cameras can send images in real-time or at any time interval chosen by the customer.
For solar-powered cameras, the frequency for sending images depends on battery capacity.
The camera images are either processed remotely on Parquery’s cloud servers or on-site on a dedicated server. In either case, the cameras need a network connection:
Regardless of whether you run our software locally or on Parquery’s cloud servers, you have two options to enable data transmission:
In either case our Operations Team will help you configure your cameras for the best possible results.
The customer can decide whether to install the cameras themselves, commission an installation company, or work with one of Parquery's professional installer partners.
Parquery's solution is easy to implement, and it is possible to use existing cameras.
It is an ideal solution, and is also more efficient than sensors.
