RedStorm™ Parking Guidance System

RedStorm 2.1, a TCP/IP enabled Parking Guidance Solution, the Parking Guidance System with OPTIONS

RedStorm 2.1
  • Just install it as a stand-alone car counting system - no Ethernet or software required
  • OR
  • Install it with Signal-Tech's new Reporting Software and start monitoring your parking activity today

The RedStorm™ Parking Guidance System combines real-time vehicle counting with Space Available signs and optional RedStorm Sign Control and Reporting Software. Using sensing technology, the RedStorm 2.1 System counts the number of vehicles entering and exiting a parking facility or deck. The remaining available “open” spaces are then displayed on signs letting motorists know where to find the open spaces.

When you choose RedStorm 2.1 PGS

RedStorm 2.1

You are choosing a parking guidance system that is:

  • Expandable over time
  • Capable of delivering accurate counts even when tailgating occurs
  • Compatible with new and existing 3rd party loop detection equipment
  • Ideal for service driven industries with non-revenue control parking garages and lots
  • TCP/IP Ethernet enabled for use with our RedStorm Sign Control & Reporting Software
  • Supported by a trained network of providers and an engineering team in the U.S.A.

Improve your customers’ parking experience with the RedStorm 2.1 Parking Guidance System!

Why RedStorm 2.1?

It’s Expandable
Start with one RedStorm 2.1 total count system. Expand it to a level by level count system. Add software to increase your span of control:

  • Begin monitoring and reporting parking activity so you can deliver the best parking experience to your customers
  • Manage one or multiple RedStorm 2.1 parking locations
  • Share available parking information with your customers using our XML feed
  • Use parking occupancy-level-conditions to redirect motorists to alternate parking with smart LED wayfinding signs

It's Accurate
Using infrared technology to detect vehicle movement even when there is bumper to bumper tailgating situations.

RedStorm 2.1 Anti-tailgating Sensor Technology
You can count on RedStorm’s ability to detect vehicles even in congested tailgating situations. We use the optical precision of infra-red technology to detect vehicular movement. Our sensors have a 7 foot wide sensing field which provides maximum coverage over the traffic lane and a narrow 3 inch deep sensing field ensures detection of individual cars, even in bumper to bumper traffic.

It's Simple
Installs without structural changes, no concrete to cut. RedStorm 2.1 will interface with 3rd party inductive loops as well as our Overhead Sensors.

It’s Versatile
RedStorm adapts to any garage or surface lot configuration. Use it for existing or new parking facilities, large or small lots, as well as city-wide or campus-type locations. Simple enough to support a total count system at a single structure or lot; and robust enough to handle complex level by level counts as well as multiple garages, surface lots or combinations of both.

  • As a Total Count System track the number of vehicles entering and exiting the garage or lot.
  • As a Level by Level Count System track the number of available or open spaces by level, deck or nested area in your parking facility
  • In a city-wide or campus–style parking application, broadcast available or open space counts to signs across the network

It's Green
The combination of RedStorm’s Space Available signs and real-time car counting capabilities makes finding an open space faster, more efficient and eliminates congestion.

It’s a Sole Source, Signal-Tech Solution!

How It Works

As a vehicle enters the parking garage or lot it passes over a pair of loop detectors or under a pair of overhead sensors that can detect direction of travel. When the vehicle triggers detection, the DZ Counter (differential counter) captures that information and communicates it to the SuperMaster Controller. The SuperMaster in turn communicates the counts to the Space Available Signs and updates the LED count displays on the signs in real-time.

When the optional RedStorm Sign Control and Reporting Software is added to the system, it seamlessly connects RedStorm 2.1 to your network. When connected, you can modify and manage your RedStorm 2.1 System from anywhere on the network.

The Software also gives you the ability to remotely control Signal-Tech LED Smart Signs and VMS Rebel Programmable Displays; making it possible to control sign messages on wayfinding and directional signs as parking occupancy changes.
