These license plate cameras are called ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) or LPR (License Plate Recognition) because they are designed to record legible license plates of vehicles. These models with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) are capable to read the license plate characters and menage a license plate database with Blacklists and Whitelists. You can use these cameras to control the access to your property by means of the included ANPR software or designing your own software with our SDK.
See below these cameras in action in a real installation.
There is a big difference between our ANPR capture cameras and these models with OCR. Our car plate capture cameras just watch the license plate legibly and do not perform any video analysis. Instead these models with OCR, in addition to resuming the plate, are able to read the numbers. They come with an OCR algorithm that transforms the image of the number plate into an alphanumeric data. You will be amazed at the quality of the OCR function of these cameras which identify any license plate, even foreign one, with 97% reading accuracy in optimal conditions.
These LPR/ANPR cameras include a powerfull and reliable OCR algorithm that you can adjust to perfectly match your installation scenario. You can trigger the plate capture when a vehicle is detected in the scene or on the base of an external detector placed on the road. You can capture 2 ways traffic or 1 way only. You can even set the minimum and maximum size of the car plates and the accuracy threshold.
You can control these cameras with common Internet browsers like Chrome or Firefox. There are many functions that these ANPR cameras with OCR can perform.
First of all they capture the car plates thus providing a LOG of the license plates. They can even upload data and pictures to a remote server via FTP or HTTP POST. This allows you to keep a record of vehicles, with time and photos, which can be easily checked at any time.
You can also upload a LIST OF CAR PLATES to the camera. The camera will activate the built-in relay output according to the vehicle license plate, managing BLACKLIST and WHITELIST. You can use this function to open a barrier or an automatic gate on the basis of the vehicle's license plate.
These ANPR cameras come with a free ANPR software. With this software you can run a features-rich car plate control station. You can MONITORS CAR PLATES in real time, SEARCH FOR CAR PLATES in the log with photos and videos, ENTER NEW CAR PLATES in the camera database and SET B/W LIST rules. The free software also includes a TECHNICAL SECTION to install and configure the cameras.
These cameras are normally installed in areas with artificial night time illumination. Nevetheless they can also operate in the dark. With low light these cameras shoot the license plates thanks to their illuminator which emits warm white light. The maximum illumination distance is 15 meters. The power of the LEDs can be adjusted via computer to adapt it to the real target distance. The LEDs turn on automatically below 10 lux thanks to the light sensor placed on the back.
When reading license plates, perfect lens adjustment is essential. For this reason, these ANPR cameras are equipped with a varifocal manual lens that you can adjust to focus the license plate according to the target distance. Rememeber that a license plate camera must be focused to the road, so it is not meant for ordinary, wide-angle surveillance. If the are is well illuminated at night you can read plates up to 30 meters distance.
These cameras have been designed to monitor entry/exit gates. They are usually installed on the roadside with the wall bracket included. You can use them to monitor both the front or rear license plates with an optimal reading distance between 3 and 15 meters . This limit is due to the LED power. If you are monitoring an illuminated area you can read plates up to around 30 meters. When choosing the best position for your camera, consider that the optimal angle with respect to the vehicles direction is around 25°. Such an angle is recommended to reduce the night glare of the headlights. Once the camera is mounted and the lens is adjusted you can perform all the setting remotely with your computer or via NVR.
These cameras come with relay output for door opener to activate an automatica gate. With this output you can allow access to vehicles according to the license plates. In order to match any external device, you can set the relay function (NO/NC) and the switching duration. These camera also includes an input to connect an optional external vehicle detector to be installed on the road.

All cameras in this range support POE power via the network cable (IEEE 802.3af Class 3). To make them work, all you have to do is connect them via network cable to a POE switch or a POE NVR. If for some reason you cannot take advantage of POE power, for example if you use the camera with a wifi bridge, you can power the camera with a 12VDC power adapter. Only one network cable is needed to install our ANPR IP cameras.
The cameras of this series are quite different compared to our standard CCTV cameras since they often interface with external software. In order to offer the maximum compatibility these cameras support RTSP video streaming, the most universal video protocol. While you are menaging the camera with the ANPR software you can also connect it to a video recorder, like our RK Series NVRs.
These ANPR cameras come a built-in microSD card slot. You can insert a micro SD memory up to 128GB and record vehicle images directly on the camera. Even if you use the software to control the cameras, we recommend you still insert the SD card as a backup recording in case of network failure.
With these cameras you can upload vehicle plates and pictures to an external server, within the local network or via web. You can use FTP or HTTP POST protocols. Storing data on external servers or NAS is very convenient to share files with other applications.
These cameras are designed for access control applications where software interaction with other equipment is often required. Our free ANPR software offers the most common features but cannot provide advanced functions like vehicle counting, permanence duration or billing. That is why we offer to software developers our free SDK libraries to control all functionalities of the cameras with their own software.DOWNLOAD SDK
