What is a Smart Station?
By combining entry, exit, and pay-on-foot device hardware—like the credit card reader, ticket dispenser, barcode scanner, RFID reader, and receipt printer—we do away with expensive, proprietary hardware and give you and your guests an all-in-one device.
Is there really no need for a ticket dispenser?
Yes, your customers can use their credit card as their ticket by swiping their card upon entry or they can press a button and get a ticket. No more bent tickets; no more demagnetized tickets; no more cardstock printers that easily jam — just a simpler, more secure, and easily maintainable parking access system.
What if I am not ready to use credit card swipe upon entry as a form of ticket, instead of paper tickets used today?
That’s okay, instead of entry and exit using a credit card, you can opt to use encrypted barcoded tickets to be printed upon entry. When your guest leaves they scan the ticket using the barcode scanner.
What happens if there is an Internet outage?
FlashPARCS’ system LTE/3G router acts as a back-up network in case of Internet outages, ensuring continuous operation for your facilities, and access to your data.
