The patented IPS solution uniquely provides a credit card enabled single-space meter mechanism that retrofits into your current on-street parking meter housing.

The kit updates outdated components with new IPS technology and features. Designed with the service technician in mind, the modular components can be easily removed, serviced, and replaced with no more than a screwdriver. Cities benefit from lower equipment upgrade costs, ease of maintenance, reduced overall cost of ownership, and seamless integration into the IPS Data Management System.
IPS Vehicle Detection Sensors reliably detect the presence and absence of a vehicle in a parking space. The IPS sensor uniquely directs all sensing information to the IPS parking meter cellular communications backbone, saving customers the hassle of installing additional network equipment and dramatically reducing the cost of ownership. The IPS sensor uses multiple sensing technologies to detect vehicles. Its unique design provides the most accurate data on the sensor market and allows for quick installation and servicing.

The ParkSmarter™ mobile app works with IPS Smart Meters to bring greater efficiency and choices to the on-street parking customer experience and parking operations in your city. ParkSmarter™ allows for controlled, personalized management of a customer’s parking experience with time-saving tools right at their fingertips. The easy-to-use app sends expiration notifications and allows the ability to add time to the meter to prevent parking ticket fines. When used in conjunction with IPS sensors, available on-street parking spaces are displayed so that customers can park quickly and easily, reduce emissions created while circling the block. Users are able to add multiple vehicles and credit cards under one account so business and personal parking can be conveniently managed in one place.
