TimeTec offers different pricing models for TimeTec Parking System, depending on the specific requirements of a client. We welcome interested parties to email specific requirements to firstname.lastname@example.org, and our team will revert with a more solid proposal and costing for your consideration.
Yes. You can upgrade your parking system to TimeTec Parking System and integrate the old system for seamless parking management.
Yes, you can select your preferred parking access methods. Cashless is the current trend. If you manage a parking site in Malaysia, the TNG RFID with TNG Card as backup is highly recommended because they cover the vast user base, and it provides the best parking experience for users with its touchless and cashless system.
Yes. You can set your preference on the TimeTec cloud server to choose your parking area for private use instead of being open to the public.
|On Next Activity Flows|
Yes. Integrability is the whole idea behind TimeTec Cloud; to build an effective cloud ecosystem for smart offices. For example, TimeTec Parking is integrable with TimeTec VMS, Visitor Management System for office towers to manage visitors for better automation and control.
Yes. TimeTec provides two systems to support owners in that area. One is i-Ad for the push advertisement feature, and another is i-Merchants for near field merchants listing based on distance. Both are integrable with TimeTec Parking to add value to the system.
TimeTec offers TimeTec TA for Time & Attendance and TimeTec Leave for employee leave management; both are Workforce Management Systems. The integration of these systems with TimeTec Parking will provide employees who are also season parkers to free their parking lots for Parking Airbnb (Please refer to Parking Airbnb) for better automation.
It all depends on how the parking bay owner or parking operator set their system. For example, each time the car owners enter a premises, the system will auto-lock a certain amount from their e-wallet based on the setting of the parking operator to ensure that patrons have enough credit for the parking fees when they leave the premises. A better experience for the user is based on trust, where the parking operator absorbs the calculated risk. The system will allow users to enter and exit the parking even when they don't have enough credit in their wallet, and the parking fees will be deducted whenever they top up their credit.
The system will send a notification to the car owners when they enter the parking area. As such, they can't access the barrier gate at the exit if they don't top up their e-wallet. If their primary payment method is a credit card, the payment is not an issue. Another suggested method is to set the system, allowing users to enter and exit even when they don't have enough credit in the e-wallet. The system will collect the parking fees when users top up their credit in the e-wallet.
Users can retrieve and print the e-Receipt anytime from TimeTec Parking App or TimeTec Parking Web.
|On License Plate Recognition (LPR)|
Yes. We have the TimeTec Smart License Plate Recognition as one of the access methods for TimeTec Parking, which can use for both casual and season parking.
An LPR system must have a vehicle detection loop or an induction loop. The loop will trigger the LPR camera to read the vehicle's plate number when the vehicle passes and arrives at a certain point. The induction loop consists of the loop, loop extension cable and a detector. Most boom gate installers are familiar with induction loops. Click here for more information
The TimeTec Smart LPR deploys OCR, Optical Character Recognition Technology, that converts images it scans into text format. The access rate also depends on the external environment, such as the image quality. For example, if a car plate number is covered with mud which causes a readability problem, it will affect the accuracy. In general conditions, the access rate of TimeTec Smart LPR is 99.5% accuracy. TimeTec LPR also is built with deep learning technology to improve its accuracy from time to time.
TimeTec Parking provides the best backup parking access method in case of LPR failure, which is the TimeTec BLE-2 with QR code reading.
|On Season Parking|
Season parking is a parking type that permits vehicle owners to park their vehicles regularly, near their home or workplace, at a fixed monthly rate.
Yes. TimeTec Parking System supports both.
Yes, TimeTec Parking System provides a feature for the reminders to be sent with an online payment option.
|On Touch ‘n Go Card (TnG) and Touch ‘n Go RFID|
The Touch 'n Go card contains Mifare contactless technology used as the sole electronic payment system (EPS) by toll expressway and highway operators across Malaysia. The Touch 'n Go card is also one of the most popular used cashless payment and access methods for parking sites in Malaysia.
The TNG RFID Tag is a sticker embedded with a radio frequency chip, and it is unique to each user, usually affixed to either the windscreen or the headlamp of a vehicle. The tags are tied to the Touch 'n Go eWallet and used as a form of electronic payment for tolls across the country, providing drivers with a safer, hassle-free drive. Soon Touch 'n Go will expand this electronic payment mode to other facilities, including paying for fuel and parking in Malaysia.
The TNG RFID enhances the parking experience. Besides being cashless and seamlessly integrated with TNG eWallet for auto-deduction of parking fees, the TNG RFID touchless feature automates the uplifting of a boom gate at the entry and exit points, in line with the future parking trend.
i.Clean the surface of the windscreen or the headlamp.
ii. Peel off the TNG RFID Tag.
iii. Install TNG RFID Tag on the outside of the upper left windscreen or left headlamp (passenger side)
i. Click on the RFID icon on the home screen of your Touch 'n Go eWallet App.
ii. Click on the 'Activate' button.
iii. Fill/Check your account details.
iv. Register your vehicle.
v. Enter the 24-digit RFID Tag number or scan the bar code on the TNG RFID Tag packaging.
vi. Activate by authorising the activation.
Follow the steps below:
i. Register an account on mx.touchngo.com.my
ii. Insert the TNG RFID Tag number & add your vehicle details.
iii. Link your TNG RFID Tag to your Touch 'n Go eWallet.
iv. An activation notification will be sent to you within 24 hours.
According to Touch 'n Go, the TNG RFID sticker is made to last for an average of five years and is made of highly durable material that can withstand various weather conditions, including heat and rain. It is also recommended to avoid chemical wash directly onto the sticker.
Yes, TimeTec is an authorised System Integrator and a Strategic Partner for both TNG Card and TNG RFID for Parking.
The parking site can only install a TNG card, but the TNG Card will default as a backup system if TNG RFID is deployed. And eventually, all parking sites will have both; the TNG RFID as primary and the TNG card as a secondary parking system.
|On Parking Airbnb|
It is a new concept for sweating the carpark bays by renting out the unutilized parking bay at a certain period to those who need them. For example, you are a season parker at an office tower but have been allowed to work from home every alternate week or with a job function that requires you to go outstation and abroad regularly. Hence, you can free the vacant parking bay to ease the parking bay shortage during peak hours and yield extra income or reduce your monthly carpark rental.
a. First, the parking operator/building owner/JMB (Joint Management Body) for the residential community has to agree in principle and subscribe to TimeTec Parking Airbnb.
b. Parking bay owner/season parkers will have to fill up the form, agree to free their parking bays via TimeTec Parking App whenever vacant.
c. Parkers can search through the TimeTec Parking App and view the available parking sites and bays to pre-book and pay for the selected parking bays.
d. Parking bay owner/season parkers might need to share their parking income with the parking operator/building owner/JMB.
Yes. It most probably offered at residential properties because the car park owners free their parking bays during the weekdays and daytime; this is known as conditional season parking.
Conditional season parking allows parkers to access and park during specific days and hours only, as the original parking space owners offer.
Authorized parkers will scan the QR code displayed at the entrance and exit lanes using TimeTec Parking App.
Parkers can pay via FPX bank transfer, credit card and eWallet on TimeTec Parking App.
Yes. Conditional season parking is not casual parking; it is limited in quantity, and it is for authorized parkers only.
b. Parkers are using non-transferable QR codes to access.
c. The e-form can be customized. Since the parkers usually work nearby, it is easy for the residential to carry out due diligence.
As stated in the agreement, the parking owner has to free his parking bay or make his own arrangement.
The period recommended is Monday-Friday from 8.30 am to 6.30 pm excluding public holidays.
There are no standard charge rates. However, parking Operator/Building Owner/JMB is recommended to set their casual and conditional season parking rates lower than the regular nearby car park's season parking fees.
No. The parkers have to park at the specific parking bays assigned to each parker.
TimeTec Parking System will auto bar them from entering the enclave after the expiry date.
Yes. Like any ordinary parking site, any conditional season parker must sign an agreement with the Parking Operator/JMB. We will provide a customizable sample agreement for Parking Operator/JMB to use.
Yes. It is advisable for Parking Operator/JMB to do so. Any available vacant carpark bays with lot numbers will be shown in green, and the ones taken will be shown in red on the TimeTec Parking App.
Only those gated and guarded residential communities surrounded by offices, colleges, commercial areas, or nearby LRT stations that are short of parking spaces can offer this parking Airbnb service.
A few criteria that should be taken into consideration:
a. There is a parking Airbnb site nearby your workplace and within walking distance;
b. Your working time is stable, no irregular working hours or OT;
c. The Airbnb parking rate is cheaper than your workplace's rates.
No. At the moment, we only deal and sign contracts with Parking Operators/Building Owners/JMBs. Therefore, all individual parking owners have to convince their management to join the Parking Airbnb service and collectively offer their car parks via the management.
Please write to us at email@example.com, and we will establish contact with you at the earliest.
Yes, the systems can be integrated or stay standalone. By integrating the two systems, residents/parking owners can fill up the e-form via i-Neighbour to participate in the Parking Airbnb service. Besides, the monies they made from offering this service can be credited into their account every month or knock-off part of their maintenance fees.
Yes. TimeTec Parking System is famous for its next activity flow. If the office tower is subscribing TimeTec TA for Time & Attendance and TimeTec Leave for leave management, the systems can integrate with TimeTec Parking Airbnb. So whenever a staff is taking leave, outstation, on-field, overseas, or work from home, his season parking bay can be automatically free for Airbnb purposes.
|On Video Parking Guidance|
Yes. Our parking guidance system, be it video guidance or ultrasonic guidance, is a part of the TimeTec Smart Parking System. It provides API for integration with any third-party system. In your case, once the parking guidance system has established integration with your shopping mall app, it will provide a real-time and accurate number of available parking lots anytime a user login to their app.
Yes. Only the TimeTec Parking Video Guidance System can achieve such an objective, but not the Ultrasonic Parking Guidance System. The TimeTec Parking Video Guidance System has been embedded with License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology to identify where a vehicle parks regardless of its entry and exit points. Therefore, it is achievable with one prerequisite condition that your parking site has to adopt the LPR parking system as the only parking method.
Yes. Like parking lot availability check, TimeTec cloud-based parking system back-end supports the Find My Car feature on TimeTec Parking App or any integrated app. However, this feature only applies to the Parking Video Guidance System and not the Ultrasonic Parking Guidance System.
Yes. The video cameras we are using for the guidance system can also serve as surveillance purposes to improve carpark security.
Yes. You can set different parking rates for different parking zones. The video guidance cameras can identify the bays where users park their vehicles. If the parking rates are set differently according to parking zones, you can charge users differently based on the parking zones.
|On Sensitive Data Protection|
TimeTec approach is Customer Managed Keys (CMK), also known as Bring Your Own Encryption or Bring Your Own Keys.
In a Customer Managed Keys CMK solution, there are four key processes.
• SaaS providers encrypt the sensitive data they store,
• Enterprise customers control and manage decryption keys,
• Encryption and decryption requests are sent from SaaS provider infrastructure to customer infrastructure.
Data is encrypted using envelope encryption - instead of sending the entire chunk of data to the customer’s infrastructure for encryption/decryption, the data is encrypted in the SaaS provider’s system using a random key, and that key is sent to the customer KMS to be encrypted. This keeps the request size small and keeps the sensitive data in the SaaS provider’s infrastructure.
In a less technical explanation, imagine installing a new lock for your main door. However, you don’t hand over the new lock and the key to the installer. Instead, you just hand the installer the lock and keep the key. Therefore, you are the only one who can enter your own premises without being afraid that the installer has duplicated another key. The same concept applies to CMK solutions. We just help you to set up your system, but you are the only one who can access your own sensitive data because you are the one who generates and keeps your own key.
