An automated parking system, also known as a multi-level parking system, is a machine designed to minimize the space and/or number required for parking automobiles. As with a multi-level garage, an APS gives automobiles parking on multiple levels stacked closely together to maximize the available space while minimizing land use. An APS is also very cost-effective, as there is no need to have a second and third level if there isn’t enough space for one.
Another benefit of installing an automated parking system comes in the form of security. Many people are inclined to park their cars in highly insecure spots, such as on the street or in a shopping mall parking lot because they don’t feel comfortable leaving their valuables out in plain sight. However, a properly installed automated system will prevent potential burglars from using these areas as their hideout. These systems are also more secure than manual locking mechanisms, making them an ideal option for businesses with employees who will be visiting clients regularly.
