Secure, Remote Access of Radar Speed Signs from Radarsign Delivers Productivity Gains

Cloud-Based Management System + Rugged Design + Economical Pricing = Remote Access and Smart ROI for Municipal Traffic Calming in 2012

ALPHARETTA, Ga., Feb. 23, 2012—With 2012 well underway, municipalities are evaluating infrastructure needs within budgets that continue to shrink. The result, according to the National League of Cities’ 2011 City Fiscal Conditions Report: 72 percent of cities plan to respond to 2012 budget reductions by cutting personnel. The need for improved productivity has never been greater. For municipal traffic managers, EZ Comm from Radarsign® answers the need for flexible, multi-tasking work options through remote access.

EZ Comm, Radarsign’s remote-access technology, allows for efficient, remote programming and management of radar speed signs—from any location via any internet-enabled computer or smart phone, saving resources and increasing productivity.

“We estimate that EZ Comm remote access can help save time, labor and vehicle overhead by about 30 percent* per year,” says Charlie Robeson, Radarsign co-founder and managing partner.

Cities investing in multiple radar speed signs will appreciate the net ROI of EZ Comm compared to the traditional method of dedicating staff and vehicles to manage the signs and collect data on-site. “When coupled with Radarsign’s StreetSmart traffic statistics software, traffic managers have access to traffic data reports, graphs and tables measuring vehicle speeds, speed limit violations, average, peak speeds and more, without having to leave their desk.”

EZ Comm’s easy to use, a secure browser-based tool for managing Radarsign systems is:

  • Centrally Managed: Control one or thousands of systems from a single browser-based user interface
  • Convenient: Authorized users have instant access to the user interface anytime from anywhere, using browser-enabled desktop, notebook, tablet or smartphone
  • Cost/Resource Effective: Eliminates the need for resources to be deployed to the field to manage individual signs, saving time and fuel
  • Fast and Secure: Utilizing Cloud-based architecture, EZ Comm provides secure and reliable communication between the system server and network controller over a highly secure Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Radarsign’s EZ Comm feature is powered by Sparks, Nevada-based Spot Devices, through a joint venture that provides remote access to the world’s first armored driver feedback signs.
