Spazio Parking Meter

Why choose Spazio Parking Meter?

Easily configured fares

Customer loyalty systems

Excellent performance even in difficult environmental conditions

Security and endurance first and foremost

The Spazio parking meter puts security first: the body, completely made of high-quality stainless steel, is structured in such a way as to make it extremely resistant, both against vandalism as well as lock picking. A superficial coating further increases its resistance to corrosive agents and paint and therefore also better preserves its appearance.

Furthermore, the locks represent the state-of-the-art in terms of security and can also be differentiated, each with its own key.


Pay the way you want

Thanks to the possible configurations, Spazio allows a choice among multiple means of payment.

Besides coins, it is also possible to use electronic means of payment such as chip cards or contactless cards, prepaid cards or city cards, and, finally, bank cards. The availability of different methods for payment has undeniable advantages both for the end-user, who is no longer required to have the exact amount of coins, as well as for the handler who, on one hand, sees payments flow directly into his account, and on the other hand sees the frequency, with which the parking meters’ money boxes are emptied, decrease greatly. Consequently, management costs are also reduced.


Help for those who work

The components used have been designed specifically to make maintenance operations easier. All devices can be easily accessed and, if necessary, quickly substituted thanks to their modularity. The device can also be controlled and programmed remotely, therefore reducing the need for direct maintenance. An alert system uses SMS or email to quickly reach the handler anywhere he may be.

Energy efficiency also means savings

One of Solari’s goals with Spazio has been to create a highly power-efficient device. Besides making the parking meter an eco-friendly object, this characteristic also makes it possible to obtain a performance that, along with a solar panel, guarantees energy independence. The result is that no external power supply is necessary and there are less battery substitutions throughout the product’s lifecycle, as well as reduced management costs.

Much more than parking

The services offered by our parking meter go beyond simply paying for parking. With Spazio it is possible to obtain advanced features regarding customer loyalty, such as discounts for local residents, special rates or free parking once the person is identified by means of a special card. Furthermore, tickets can be dispensed for the use of public transportation. And that’s not all. Another feature is the ability to interface with barrier systems used in parking structures. And there are many others features available.

An effective solution goes beyond a parking meter

Spazio is not just a system for dispensing tickets for parking. When used with Solari Smartpark software, it allows for a broader view of parking management with the purpose of providing the handler with all the tools necessary to help him perform his duties effectively. The entire infrastructure can be controlled remotely by means of a Web server, where information regarding the system can be obtained for both diagnostic and financial purposes. The first step in the decision-making process is to work with solid information: Smartpark offers a wide range of statistics, and should these not be sufficient, it is always possible to extract all necessary data. A management system also includes the ability to program parking meter functions directly from the office: rates, tickets, messages and many other parameters can be configured and updated remotely with just a few clicks of the mouse, without the need to directly access the devices.

Spazio (Space) is a device designed for parking control and, once payment is confirmed, it is capable of dispensing a ticket attesting a person’s right to park for a certain amount of time. Spazio is both reliable and efficient, as well as robust and can operate in outdoor environments even when conditions are difficult, and does so without forgetting the importance of a captivating design and good taste.
