You can monitor parking zones from the Monitoring task. The Monitoring task tiles can display the parking zone occupancy and the number of violations. If additional surveillance cameras are linked to the parking zone, the tiles can also display their video feeds.

Procedure

  1. Open the Monitoring task.
  2. Double click a parking zone from the area view, or drag a parking zone to a monitoring tile.

    If no additional video cameras are linked to the parking zone, the following information is displayed in the tile:

    • Parking zone name
    • Current parking zone occupancy displayed as a ratio, a percentage, and a circle graph
      NOTE: The occupancy graph changes from green to orange when the parking zone reaches 70% occupancy. When the parking zone reaches 90% occupancy, the occupancy graph changes from orange to red and starts to flash.
    • Current violations, expressed as both a number and a percentage of active parking sessions
    • Time and date at which the tile information was updated

    If additional video cameras are linked to the parking zone, the following information is displayed in the tile:

    • Video feeds from linked surveillance video units
      NOTE: You can cycle the video feeds in the monitoring tile using the controls in the tile widget.
    • Parking zone name
    • The current parking zone occupancy displayed as a ratio, a percentage, and a bar graph above the video feed
    • Current violations, expressed as both a number and a percentage of active parking sessions
      NOTE: The occupancy graph changes from green to orange when the parking zone reaches 70% occupancy. When the parking zone reaches 90% occupancy, the occupancy graph changes from orange to red and starts to flash.
    • Time and date at which the tile information was updated

  3. (Optional) At a certain point (for example, when the parking lot closes) you can assume that all parking sessions have ended and that any vehicles remaining in the parking zone have been issued tickets or must be towed. You can reset the parking zone inventory using the action Reset parking zone inventory.
