TKH Security (formerly Park Assist) recently finished installing its advanced-tech M4 Smart-Sensor Parking Guidance System (PGS) at ilani, the Pacific Northwest premier gaming, dining, entertainment, and meeting destination in Ridgefield, Washington. Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE), the resort’s managing partner, selected TKH Security for ilani along with its flagship property, Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. ilani is located minutes from Portland, Oregon, and it is one of the largest casino resorts in the Northwest. As part of the resort’s expansion, a 2,700-space parking facility was constructed. Designed to facilitate increased traffic flow during major events and peak business hours, this garage also supports future expansion plans. The M4 PGS will enhance the garage, elevating the guest experience and public safety by offering the latest technology in parking guidance.
ilani’s new PGS includes several popular software integrations, including Park Finder™, Park Surveillance™, and Park Alerts™, ensuring guests are treated to unparalleled parking guidance from entry to exit.
As parkers arrive at the facility, the M4 PGS helps them easily navigate the garage, indicating where spaces are available on each level. Utilizing color-coded LED lights, the M4 sensor indicates which spots are open and directs parkers to these specific spaces. This intelligent system enhances the user experience by significantly reducing the search and park times for guests while streamlining traffic and relieving congestion to ensure the facility operates at maximum efficiency.
As visitors prepare to exit the property, the guest-centric Park Finder software module utilizes LPR (license plate recognition) technology to ensure that they can quickly pinpoint their vehicle. Guests can simply enter their license plate number into a Park Finder enabled kiosk, and the Find Your Car™ locator searches a database of parked vehicles in the garage, identifies the correct license plate number and corresponding vehicle, and provides step-by-step directions to get to the car.
Park Surveillance and Park Alerts provide increased surveillance, maximized control, and extra security to this parking facility. The Park Surveillance integration enables the M4 sensors to capture streaming video of any movement in or around parking bays. With clear views of each parking bay and the surrounding space between vehicles, the M4 cameras can effectively provide continuous surveillance, document all garage activity, and guard against criminal activities such as theft, vandalism, and unwanted intruders. Additionally, the Park Alerts add-on allows parking management to set automated time and license plate-based rules and alerts that help staff control garage activity, enforce parking policy, and respond to critical events.
“TKH Security was thrilled to have the opportunity to install this new parking guidance system at ilani. As it is one of the largest casino resorts in the Northwest, it was imperative for us to provide a solution that would not only improve each customer’s parking journey but increase security and efficiency of the facility as well.” Said Will Cai, Regional Account Manager.
TKH Security worked as a subcontractor to the General Contractor, Swinerton.
Recently completed, the garage is open, and the PGS is ready for public use.
