Use of New Technology Assists NMW Mission whileReducing Costs and Helping to Keep Visitor Fees Stable
I you arrived at one o our staed checkpoints ater daily operating hoursor entered through one o the unstaed electronic gates last season, youare aware that we have been making some signicant adjustments inthe way we operate. These changes have been implemented so we cancontinue our mission o keeping the area open to public use by protect-ing property through managing access. We are doing this with the useo motion sensitive cameras, satellite internet service and telecommu-nications at some entrypoints. Supplementingpeople with technol-ogy has been occurringat many businesses inorder to improve oper-ations and to maintainor reduce operatingcosts. NMW has beengoing through a similartransition.
Night Time Entry and Motion Detection Cameras
Up until 2009, we staed some checkpoints 24 hours a day seven days aweek- 6 Mile Checkpoint on the American Realty Road, Telos Checkpointand Caribou Checkpoint on the Golden Road. In 2009 we did not ll thenight shit employee positions, but instead installed motion sensitivelights, live time recording cameras and satellite internet service. This al-lowed us to monitor trafc between 9 PM and 6 AM or the above check-points, plus Fish River and Dickey, rom our Ashland ofce.Camera images are sent via satellite internet to a central control room inour Ashland ofce where one person watches all nighttime trafc. Tele-phone communication is available at all locations which allows visitorsto call our ofce at night to register and enter or leave NMW or get as-sistance in case o an emergency. Although this system may not be asconvenient as having someone at the checkpoints, it is less expensiveand so reduces the need to increase ees paid by visitors. With camerasrecording trafc 24 hours a day seven days a week, it also helps us keeptrack o who is traveling in and out o the area should we have thet orvandalism problems.
Automated gates
As a non- prot organization, North Maine Woods operates on a break even basis. The amount charged or overnight camping is directly re-lated to costs NMW incurs or maintaining campsites. The same is trueor the amount charged or day use. Day use ees oset costs or operat-ing checkpoints which allow access into the NMW region. In an eort tocontinue to allow access while keeping user ees low, we have installeda number o automated, unstaed gates in recent years which is a morecost eective way to manage access.Visitors entering the North Maine Woods on some low trafc accessroads may encounter automated, electronic gates. These gates are notstaed, but have instructional signs, motion sensitive video camerasand a telephone located in a small building next to the road. Signs in-struct visitors to call the number provided which will connect them toone o our employees who will help them sel register and pay appro-priate ees. Once this process is complete, permission will be grantedto enter. I someone wants to enter or leave NMW via one o the auto-mated gates, it will simpliy the process i they pre-register at a staedcheckpoint or have season passes, L Passes or Guest Passes with them.NMW sta monitors trafc at these locations 24 hours a day, seven daysa week and the cameras record all video or the year at each location.Dickey Checkpoint was the rst to be automated in 2005 and, ollowingseveral years o successul operation, more have been added at otherlocations. In 2009, Seboomook Dam and Northeast Carry automatedgates were installed on roads leading into North Maine Woods romSeboomook Township north o Rockwood.In 2011, another automated checkpoint was installed on the so-calledKelly Dam Road which enters the North Maine Woods rom Route 201a ew miles north o Jackman. We encourage visitors to pre-register atBishop’s Store in Jackman prior to heading into the Kelly Dam Road aspre-registering will streamline the process and reduce time required togo through this process over the telephone at the automated gate site.Visitors can expect to encounter additional conversions in the uture aswe improve the operational aspects o the equipment and as road sys-tems change along the NMW boundary.
