Two main databases that were linked were the SELS (Electronic School ID System) and Active Directory allowing for seamless data transfer between the systems. By integrating the databases, the client can automatically retrieve critical information such as student and staff records, schedules, and other essential data.
Leveraging AC data for a better way of working
To ensure that universities remain attractive to students, it’s important to utilize AC solutions to enhance campus life. For instance, the iParking website receives the data from IPROTECT to provide students with real-time information about parking availability. Thanks to this data, the university can also provide students with interesting and useful information in their “Strefa Otwartej Nauki” (SON)/Open Science Zone (SON) to show the attractiveness of the library for students, for example, how many people use this facility.
Facility Communication (Intercom)
In situations where a card is forgotten or a different car with a different LPR number is used (VIPs, couriers, borrowed vehicles, etc), Intercom provides a reliable means of communicating with the operator. Through this communication, the operator can authorize access to the facility, preventing any unnecessary delays or disruptions. For the convenience of security employees changing workstations, the Intercom system is also connected to the central phone line.
Manage events and react accordingly
Based on customer requirements, event-driven management procedures were implemented using our SMS where operators are automatically informed by an alarm when an exceptional activity of interest takes place, especially important when monitoring areas where activity should not be taking place at specific times.
Access Control for security-sensitive environments
At the university, 235 readers were installed to offer a fully equipped solution to ensure the highest levels of security for employees, students, and visitors. The advantages of the Access Control system include functionalities such as integration of a student ID card as a proximity access card and flexible expansion of the AC system with additional rooms or buildings. Our solution provides a comprehensive guest service that includes several features.

Thanks to such a global combination of our solutions, the user can manage not only the university car park but also the entire university from one place. Undoubtedly, the solution used in this project puts Wrocław University of Science and Technology among the most secure universities in Poland.”
An informed approach to campus management to ensure compliance and enhance security.
The sprawl of a college or university campus presents a set of unique challenges for parking managers, further complicated by the composition of a campus: size and distribution, urban or suburban, and proportion of residents to commuters 24/7. Additionally, traditional security systems have a hard time getting an unobstructed view of key areas where undesirable events can take place, like in and between parking spaces themselves.
The sprawl of a college or university campus presents a set of unique challenges for parking managers, further complicated by the composition of a campus: size and distribution, urban or suburban, and proportion of residents to commuters. The installation of a Parking Guidance system is a cost-effective method to keep campus traffic flowing during peak periods, manage compliance among multiple user groups, addressing the unique needs of event management, and to bolster security and safety beyond the parameters of a traditional surveillance system.
Tailored Solutions for You
Advanced wayfinding signage and bright signaling LEDs on our smart-sensor cameras team up to direct students, faculty, staff, and visitors to open spaces within their designated areas across multiple garages and parking areas. For campuses with large commuter populations, an INX Premium Subscription or our Ops Command+ API package can be used to push real-time parking availability to your website and a wide range of smartphones and tablets.
With the Park Finder software module — available with an INX Standard Subscription — our integrated License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology helps returning parkers to locate vehicles as they prepare to exit the parking facility. By entering at least three numbers or letters from their license plate into a touchscreen kiosk or smartphone app, parkers and staff members can pinpoint the exact location of their vehicle. This Find My Car functionality can be extended to incorporate campus maps for directions to specific buildings.
The business intelligence built into the core INX system enables campus operations staff to keep an eye on parking patterns and policy compliance across multiple parking assets. An INX Standard Subscription utilizing our Park Alerts software module leverages our LPR technology to fully automate both monitoring and enforcement. Vehicle-specific citations can be issued online, eliminating the labor and equipment cost of present drive-by methods.
In today’s world, the more eyes you can have on your facility, the better. The fact is, traditional security systems have a hard time getting an unobstructed view of key areas where undesirable events can take place, like in and between parking spaces themselves.
With a standard Park Assist installation, smart-sensor cameras are already identifying vehicles and monitoring occupancy in every parking space. This enables the core INX system to maintain a complete inventory of parked vehicles for security purposes. Through our Park View Surveillance add-on software module, our M5 APGS can also capture streaming surveillance video whenever motion is detected in or around a space or continuously, if desired. This provides an expanded level of security, campus crime deterrence, and additional protection against liability that would otherwise be cost-prohibitive.
