TKH Security has been Awarded its Fourth Major Parking Guidance System Contract with Tavistock Development
CHESHIRE, CT – August 5, 2021 – TKH Security (formerly Park Assist) has been awarded the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract for the Lake Nona Wave Hotel. Tavistock Development’s latest design, the Wave Hotel, is an urban lifestyle hotel located at the epicenter of Lake Nona, offering an eclectic assortment of dining and dynamic meeting and event spaces. With hospitality and technology integrated at every touchpoint, Wave Hotel includes 234 total guest rooms, including 16 One-Bedroom Suites and two Penthouse Suites. TKH Security’s M4 system will be installed in the hotel’s new 900+ space garage, ensuring that guests are treated to an exceptional experience from the moment of arrival to departure.
Given the success of TKH Security’s previous on-site installations and its industry-leading technology, Tavistock Development elected to deploy TKH Security’s camera-based M4 smart-sensor system in this latest facility. Along with the camera-based M4 PGS, this installation will also include TKH Security’s LCD-NAV and VMS-NAV wayfinding signage as well as several exclusive software modules: Park Finder™, Park Alerts™, and Park Surveillance™.
TKH Security’s proprietary M4 PGS and digital wayfinding signage offer each parker unparalleled guidance from garage entry to exit. The entryway LCD-NAV sign provides advanced, customizable, real-time data as drivers arrive at the facility, immediately helping them decide which level has the most available parking.
The in-aisle, state-of-the-art VMS-NAV signs display a vast array of continuously updated occupancy data, empowering visitors to make informed on-the-spot decisions. With split-screen, scrolling, and toggling capabilities, the VMS-NAV offers operators a flexible navigation solution that can broadcast an expansive set of dynamic digital messages beyond simple counts.
As wayfinding signage guides users to appropriate parking areas within the facility, TKH Security’s M4 smart-sensors enhance the guidance experience by indicating which specific spaces are available or occupied using color-coded red (occupied) and green (available) LED lights.
Upon returning to the garage at the end of their stay, the Find Your Car™ vehicle locator feature enables hotel guests to locate their car quickly and easily. By entering all or part of their license plate number into the Park Finder system, guests are guided to the exact space where their car is parked, increasing customer satisfaction and decreasing the time they spend exiting the facility.
The Park Alerts and Park Surveillance integrations help increase control and security in the garage. The Park Alerts software extension allows parking management to set automated rules and alerts, enabling operations staff to enforce policies and remain informed about parking abuse and policy violations within the garage. TKH Security’s Park Surveillance module enables the M4 sensors to capture streaming video of any movement in or around parking bays. With unobstructed views of each parking bay as well as space in between vehicles, the M4 cameras can successfully capture all action in the garage, serving as a proven deterrent of theft and other criminal behaviors.
“Lake Nona has consistently been a great client and location for the TKH Security (Park Assist) client portfolio. We are proud to continue to build our footprint in the Orlando area with our fourth major installation in this incredible development with their new Wave Hotel property. We are excited & grateful for the opportunity and look forward to our continued success with Tavistock Development.” Said Thomas Alexander, Regional Account Manager Southeast US.
Site work has already commenced and is anticipated for completion in October of this year.
