Seeing the shortcomings of conventional carpark managements which did not meet their requirements, the Makhon Pathom Central Prison hoped that ZKTeco could offer them a safe and efficient carpark management system.

Client Requirements

Increasing Security Level

Entry to the Prison requires strict identity verification of the staffs and visitors, yet its conventional carpark management made it difficult and time-consuming to manually identity staffs’ car and differentiate them from illegal entries.

Enhancing Carpark Efficiency

As the carpark of the Prison is daily accessed by an approximate number of 500 vehicles, conventional carpark management applied to the Prison carried out heavy workload to the Prison’s security staffs, and it sometimes accumulated heavy traffic loading. Thus it required a carpark system that is able to enhance the operation efficiency.
