Innovative motorbike-park secures with Pacom

Leeds, Yorkshire and Alicante, Spain

Mimoto Parking offers a revolutionary service where owners can safely park their motorbikes and also store belongings such as helmets, jackets and gloves in lockers.

With the use of motorbikes on the rise all over Spain, Mimoto Parking has installed cutting edge access control and intrusion detection technology from Pacom across its facilities, so owners can keep their motorbikes safe and secure.

According to a 2016 study by the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA-UAB) and the UAB Department of Geography, Barcelona is now the European city with the highest number of motorbikes per inhabitant. The research found that 372,278 trips are made on motorbikes every day in the city.

Unattended motorbikes are vulnerable to theft and vandalism, so protecting them has become a key concern. Similarly, city councils are cracking down on illegally parked motorbikes that obstruct access, and are removing them from pavements and other areas.

It’s this situation that prompted Alicante-based motorcyclist, Alejandro Martin, to create Mimoto Parking, along with two other biking friends. As the company’s managing director, he takes up the story and explains, ‘We want our customers to be able to keep their motorbikes secure and avoid the fines associated with illegal parking. By creating conveniently located facilities that can be accessed at street level, without the need to negotiate dangerous ramps, we have reinvented the parking concept. We offer a revolutionary service where owners can safely park and also store belongings such as helmets, jackets and gloves in lockers. Users can access our parking lots on a 24/7 basis and go about their business without worrying about their motorbike’s security.’

After discussions with Pacom and integrator Cettec Seguridad, Cettec configured a solution based around the Pacom 8002 integrated access and alarm controller – an all-in-one platform that integrates the functionality required for a remote security system. Pacom 8002 supports auto-discovery of peripheral devices for simplified installation and all doors can be individually configured to operate via card only, PIN only, or card and PIN, with access schedules providing additional control. Furthermore, doors and alarm points can be partitioned into different areas of security and controlled by multiple keypads. The Pacom 8002 system would have to integrate seamlessly with Mimoto Parking’s mobile app and allow the ARC to monitor events at all times.  Pacom's technical experts were able to modify the software’s algorithms and design new schematics to meet Mimoto Parking’s exact requirements and, in addition, deliver uninterrupted system operation, intelligent self-testing and multiple back-up.

Pacom and Cettec Seguridad also collaborated to ensure that the system can be quickly and easily rolled out across any new sites as they are acquired. Each system controls one entry and one exit door using a single controller and keypad, which means minimal wiring and allows minor adjustments to be made as necessary.
