LocoMobi World Launches Its Safe, Secure and Sustainable CondoPark LPR System at Bloorvista

August 4, 2020

Toronto, ON. – LocoMobi World, one of North America’s Smart City technology leaders, is proud to announce the launch of its fully integrated CondoPark system at Bloorvista in the Islington Terrace master-planned community in Etobicoke. Built by Canadian award-winning developer, Tridel, this sold-out building demands the best in security and parking technology to keep tenants safe and trespassers out. CondoPark, powered by LPR Express, is a web-based parking system that uses industry-leading License Plate Recognition technology to instantly give access to registered tenants and guests by reading their license plates in seconds. All guests are securely registered through an encrypted online portal, providing both convenience and the highest level of security. This eliminates the need for fobs or access keys, which can easily be stolen. Enhancements to this system at Bloorvista include LocoMobi World’s Added Awareness Console & Advanced Alerts and CallWhenHere. The Added Awareness Console provides an extra level of security that focuses on keeping tenants safe and intruders out. The concierge and security teams are aware of who is in the parking garage at all times including vehicles tailgating inside, vehicles with unauthorized access, and non-vehicles such as persons, skateboards, and bicycles. CallWhenHere allows tenants, customers, and visitors access to a property by simply speed-dialling the gate/door call number from their vehicle. Access will only be granted if the phone number is registered and active at the time they call.

“When working with one of Canada’s premier developers such as Tridel, LocoMobi World’s commitment is to provide a safe, secure, and seamless experience with reliable leading technology and interactive apps to guide the smart community. The CondoPark system and add-ons form one of North America’s strongest parking solutions in the market,” says Grant Furlane, LocoMobi World’s CEO.

Welcome to the Next Generation of Curbside Pick-Up and Drive-Thru with Arrival Alarm powered by LPR Express!

During the global pandemic, businesses have completely shifted their practices with curbside pick-up and drive-thru becoming increasingly essential. Even with the slow open of brick and mortar retail shops and in-restaurant dining, curbside pick-up and drive-thru remains favorable among consumers and will continue to be as we move forward. 

According to Hal Lawton, CEO of Tractor Supply Company, “consumers will likely stick to shopping habits picked up during the coronavirus pandemic well into the future.” Lawton emphasizes that things like contactless payment and curbside pick-up will be important and that his business model has shifted to favor these new consumer habits.  

As shops have started to open up, The New York Times reported that retail sales have rebounded in May. Small shops have seen success with steady sales through curbside pick-up only. The New York Times also stated that stand-alone retailers and other open-air retail spaces (as opposed to enclosed shopping malls) are seeing favorable results as people are shifting to the new norms of shopping and the curbside pick-up model. 

LocoMobi World’s mission is to move the world forward with the latest smart city technology and we recently released Arrival Alarm to help businesses introduce or improve their curbside pick-up or drive-thru system. Arrival Alarm, powered by LPR Express, notifies establishments in real-time when customers arrive on-site, vastly speeding up the pick-up process.

Arrival Alarm eliminates long lines and frustrated customers and instead, streamlines the order & pick-up process saving time and money. Customers are asked to input their license plate number when ordering online or through a business’s mobile app. When they arrive for pick-up, LPR cameras scan their license plates and the establishment is notified instantly of their arrival. LPR Express’s multi-step scanning process uses advanced artificial intelligence to ensure extreme accuracy. Specially built recognition cameras with AI exposure control guarantees the best image possible for the license plate recognition and multiple license plate scans further increases accuracy. Customers no longer have to phone in or scroll through their email inbox when they arrive, thus creating a truly frictionless experience for all parties involved!

Get in touch with one of our expert salespeople to learn more and let’s get the ball rolling on a convenient, frictionless, and sustainable curbside pick-up and drive-thru system today! Email or call us at (416)-883-2463.
