City of Naples’ Visitors and Residents to Park Smarter and Faster with New APGS

Park Assist Solutions 16.04.2024

Cheshire, CT – April 16, 2024 – TKH Security is pleased to announce our partnership with the beautiful City of Naples, Florida. With a population of roughly 20,000 residents and tourists visiting throughout the year, parking can pose a challenge especially in peak travel season. To create the smoothest possible travel experience for tourists and residents alike, the City of Naples is implementing our Automated Parking Guidance System (APGS) in their two existing parking garages to monitor more than 600 combined spaces, as well as a new structure that will open later this year with 400 spaces.

Nestled in southwest Florida between Miami and Fort Myers, the City of Naples is known for luxury, leisure, and unparalleled natural beauty. This coastal gem is widely recognized as both one of the best beach towns to live in and the golf capital of the world. After earning such high praise and accolades, it’s no wonder that the city draws in large numbers of visitors from across the country – all of whom need somewhere to park when they arrive.

“The City of Naples is one the most beautiful cities in the State of Florida. It’s always a pleasure and privilege to bring new technology to thriving cities looking to enhance the experience for its residents and visitors,” said Thomas Alexander, Regional Account Executive. “We are thrilled to add another major city to our long list of Florida projects.”

Installation of the Park Assist Solution in the City of Naples will be completed in two phases – first, replacing the outdated loop system in the existing parking structures with the camera-based C5 Smart Counting Solution and second, installing the C5 in a new garage to open in late 2024. Unlike traditional loop systems, this state-of-the-art solution can be installed with no disruption to parking operations and offers unmatched accuracy, flexibility, and data insights. The C5 cameras are strategically installed at crucial locations, precisely detecting bidirectional traffic at 96%+ accuracy, and transmitting the counts to both VMS signs and INX for comprehensive reporting for operators and unmatched insights for visitors to draw upon when choosing where to park.

The City of Naples’ automated parking guidance system (APGS) package also includes:

The first phase of installation in the two existing garages is slated to begin in Q2 2024 and be completed by the middle of summer. The second phase will commence once the new garage is completed in late 2024.

“The City of Naples selected us based on our proven track record throughout the state and a recommendation from a trusted general contractor who had previously worked with us,” said Thomas Alexander.
