Some customers mix the terms and concepts of license plate recognition (LPR) and automatic number plate recognition (ANPR). Generally, LPR is used to describe surveillance cameras that are capable of capturing license plates clear enough for humans and machines to recognize. For example, if you record video to a DVR and go back to review footage, the license plates can be read. ANPR generally refers to software that can identify license plates and take some type of action such as recording the plate number to a database or matching the plate against a database list for access control (like opening a gate).

Designing a surveillance system with LPR is typically more technical than designing a traditional CCTV system. The trained video surveillance engineers at CCTV Camera Pros can assist you in planning and help design a system based on your specific requirements and goals. Please contact us if you would like assistance. You can email us your system requirements or call us at 888-849-2288.

NOTE: Please Read LPR Install / Positioning Guide prior to purchasing an LPR camera.

NVRs with Automatic License Plate Recognition Software

DVR with ALPR Software

All of our Viewtron IP camera NVRs have built-in ALPR (automatic license plate recognition software). Although these recorders are made for IP cameras, some people still refer to them as DVRs (digital video recorders) instead of NVRs (network video recorders). They are available in 8 channel, 16 channel, and 32 channel models. CCTV Camera Pros can provide a custom license plate recognition system quote for you based on any of these recorders and any number / combination of Viewtron IP cameras. We provide free email and phone consultations to make sure that our system meets your requirements. You can also email us here if you have any questions.

Security Camera Mobile App

Security Camera App

Here is a video demo video using the Viewtron security camera app for iPhone. The mobile app for Android is identical. In this video, the mobile app connects to the Viewtron IP camera NVR at CCTV Camera Pros office. The CCTV Camera Pros' NVR is connected to 6 Viewtron IP cameras, including 4K AI security cameras and an LPR / ANPR camera (license plate recognition / automatic number plate recognition). You can watch additional video demos of the Viewtron security camera app here.

IP LPR Camera System Demo

LPR ANPR Camera System

Watch this video to see the Viewtron IP-LPR7 LPR camera used with (2) Viewtron AI security cameras to provide a complete LPR / ANPR camera system. Check out this video to see the different ways to search & playback recorded LPR video footage.

License Plate Reader Camera + AI Vehicle Detection

License Plate Reader Camera System

Watch this video to see how CCTV Camera Pros used our the license plate reader camera in conjunction with one of our Viewtron AI cameras to detect when people are illegally dumping in our garbage dumpster. The AI camera is setup to detect people and vehicles around the dumper after hours and trigger a bookmarked event on the NVR. The LPR-IP7 license plate reader captures tags.

LPR / ALPR Camera System

Here is a picture of our ALPR camera system setup on the pole behind our warehouse. The camera mounted down low on the pole is the LPR / APLR camera. And, the two cameras installed up high on the pole both this model IP-A4BZ bullet AI camera. We use both of those cameras as overview cameras to cover both directions of traffic around the bend. All of the cameras that you see mounted to the pole are using our universal security camera mount box. You can click on the image for a large view.

LPR System Demo

LPR Camera System

Viewtron license plate recognition cameras (LPR) are designed to detect when vehicle license plates enter a defined area. The LPR system tested in the above video used a Viewtron LPR-IP7 license plate AI camera connected to a Viewtron IP camera NVR. When a plate is detected, the event is bookmarked, a snapshot is taken, and video is recorded on the NVR's hard drive. Thumbnail images can be displayed on the live video view (like you see above) for easy access to playback the recorded video of the license plate capture.

Night Time License Plate Recognition

License Plate Recognition System

Watch the Viewtron license plate recognition system capture plates at night time in a very dark environment. After watching the above video, you will better understand why it is important to install an LPR camera with at least one overview camera.

ANPR Camera

In addition to detecting license plates, the LPR-IP7 is also an ANPR camera (automatic number plate recognition). Number plate recognition and license plate database applications are possible when you connect a LPR-IP7 to a Viewtron NVR. The above ANPR database screenshot was captured from a Viewtron NVR. Please note that Viewtron BNC hybrid DVRs do not support LPR and other AI functions.You must use a Viewtron IP camera NVR for all AI functions.

Front License Plate Capture

License Plate Capture Camera

Here is another night license plate capture recording. Except this one demonstrates capturing the license plate mounted in the front of the car. This video shows how well the LPR-IP7 compensates for headlight glare. In this video, the LPR-IP7 camera is connected to a Viewtron hybrid security camera DVR that also supports IP cameras. This is also known as a hybrid BNC DVR. Hybrid DVRs allow customers to use BNC security cameras and network IP cameras on the same recorder.

The one downside to using a Viewtron DVR vs NVR is that the DVRs do not have the ANPR software built-in. What does this mean? Basically, the camera and DVR will be able to record license plates clear enough for a human to read, but the DVR will not automatically identify the license plate and specific numbers automatically. Only Viewtron NVRs have the automatic number plate software built-in.

License Plate Reader Database

License Plate Reader Camera

Watch this video to learn how-to create an authorized vehicle database using our Viewtron license plate reader camera and NVR. License plates can be added to the database via the following methods.

  1. Manual data entry on the NVR.
  2. CSV file import on NVR (comma separated value). You can download my CSV import file template here.
  3. Using existing license plate capture records on the NVR.

Automatic License Plate Reader (Rain Test)

Automatic License Plate Reader Camera

Watch this video to see the Viewtron automatic license plate reader camera working in the rain.

LPR Camera Installation

Please use these recommended best practices in order to plan a successful license plate capture camera installation. It is important to mount the camera so that the camera view width is 16 feet or less at the point where plates will be captured. License plate cameras can not monitor wide areas also capture small details like the numbers on a license plate. These are extremely important concepts to understand when planning a successful license plate capture system.

LPR Camera Installation

Watch this video to see Mike discuss all the the best practices that he recommends when it comes to installing a Viewtron LPR camera system.

How-to Playback Recorded Video

LPR Video Surveillance Recording

Watch this video to see Mike review the various ways that recorded LPR video surveillance footage can be searched for and played back on Viewtron NVRs.

SD Card Recording & Web Browser Access

LPR Camera Web Browser Setup

Although CCTV Camera Pros highly recommends using our LPR camera with a Viewtron NVR and at least one overview camera, the LPR-IP7 camera can be used as a stand alone recording device because it has a micro SD card slot and the ANPR / LPR software is embedded in the camera.

LPC vs LPR vs ANPR Explained

License Plate Capture vs License Plate Recognition Camera

Watch this video to hear Mike explain the differences between LPC (license plate capture) vs LPR (license plate recognition) cameras. Mike also discusses ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) software.

Wireless Setup for LPR Camera System

Wireless LPR Camera System

CCTV Camera Pros supplies this wireless camera system as an add-on for IP cameras. Watch the above video to see the LPR system installed at CCTV Camera Pros warehouse in West Palm Beach, Florida. We are using the WIFI system to transmit HD video from 3 security cameras mounted on a pole behind our building. This system is working great. This was an important demonstration because license plate recognition requires high quality video and frame rate. The fact that we are able to do this over WIFI is important to document for our customers. Please note, we ALWAYS recommend hard wiring camera systems. Wireless is ONLY recommended as a last resort if hard wiring is not possible. Wireless is NOT as reliable as a hard wired surveillance system. You can learn more about this outdoor wireless security camera system here.
