We like IPS because our customers like IPS, and at the end of the day, that’s what we’re here for.Dennis Thompson
We went with IPS because of the possibilities—the possibility to pay with additional forms of payment, the possibility to configure the meters remotely, and the possibility to use the meters and back-end system in ways we haven’t even conceived of yet.
Vehicle Detection Sensors
IPS Vehicle Detection Sensors reliably detect the presence and absence of a vehicle in a parking space. The IPS sensor uniquely directs all sensing information to the IPS parking meter cellular communications backbone, saving customers the hassle of installing additional network equipment and dramatically reducing the cost of ownership. The IPS sensor uses multiple sensing technologies to detect vehicles. Its unique design provides the most accurate data on the sensor market and allows for quick installation and servicing. IPS Group’s is the only sensor system that does NOT require a separate network.
