Install a Smart Parking System in Your Apartment/Office Complex

Published May 10, 2020( 5 min read )

Parking lots in apartment complexes and offices are private parking lots. Only the inhabitants of that aprtment or office can park in that parking lot. Visitors are given special permissions for a short duration. Wifisecureaccess provides a very smart and cost effective parking management system for such parking lots. Only those whom the management allows can park in these parking lots. Management can give short term permissions for visitors. All these can be easily managed from the manager's office.

In this blog, we will learn how we can install WifiSecireAccess smart parking systems in private parking lots and how the smart devices can be installed at the entry and exit gates and how they can be configured. We will also learn how the management can add residents and visitors to the list of authorised users and how to remove them. Lets get started :

  2. Connecting cables and screw drivers
  3. Scanner Box

Follow the steps given in Section 2 of the Access Controller Documentation to integrate the access controller to the door/gate.

Then follow steps in Section 3 of the same documentation to configure the access controller.
Follow the steps in section 4 of the documentation to allow all users of the apartment complex or Office. Those steps explain how to create a group and enter the email addresses of all the allowed users, and then assigning that group to each of the access controller installed at every gate.
The section 5 of that documentation is not applicable here, and may be ignored.
Once the steps in the above sections are completed, the system is ready to be used. All allowed users can now scan the QRCode or NFC tag installed at the gate to get access.
