License Plate Recognition Systems, ANPR / LPR Cameras

LPR Camera System

Viewtron license plate recognition systems include a network IP LPR camera, AI security camera for overview, network video recorder (NVR) with PoE, and CAT5 cables for each camera. The Viewtron network video recorders have built-in LPR / ANPR software. This software works in conjunction with the firmware on the LPR camera to recognize license plates (LPR) and automatically detect the numbers and letters on the plates (ANPR).

These IP camera systems are simple enough for DIY installation, however, they are the high end construction that professional installers and electricians expect. The overview cameras that CCTV Camera Pros includes are AI security cameras. You can check out the artificial intelligence functions here. You can watch these LPR video demos and this NVR user interface demo to see the outstanding quality that our Viewtron systems provide. We also have this installation guide available. You can request a free consultation and custom LPR system quote here.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How can I export license plate numbers from the LPR database?
Yes. It is very easy to export all of the license plates that were recorded on the NVR to an external USB drive. You can export a JPEG image of each license plate along with a CSV file of all of the plate numbers. That file can then be opened on a Windows or Mac PC. These CSV files can be used to import all of the license plates and time / date that they were captured into a 3rd party system. This allows you to integrate our Viewtron LPR camera with your system using a semi-automated process. Please find License plate export instructions here.

Can detected plates be checked against a database of authorized plates?
Yes. Viewtron LPR camera systems have ALPR software built-in. ALPR stands for automatic license plate recognition. After the ALPR software recognizes the characters on a plate, the plate can be compared against a list of authorized license plates that you can define on the NVR. Please watch our license plate reader camera & authorized database video here.

Can I receive a notification in real time when a license plate is detected or when a specific license plate is recognized?
Yes. You can receive a push notification via the mobile app when your LPR camera detects a plate or recognizes a plate in a specific list that you define. You can receive the push notification on one or multiple mobile phones. Push notifications are supported on the iPhone app and Android app.

Do I have to use a recorder or can I just install the LPR camera stand-alone?
Although CCTV Camera Pros highly recommends using our LPR camera with a Viewtron NVR, 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. Please watch our SD card setup & web browser access video demo here.

Do Viewtron IP camera systems support support multiple LPR cameras on a single NVR?
Yes. You can use as multiple LPR cameras on a single Viewtron NVR. You are only limited by the number of IP cameras supported by the NVR. We have 8ch, 16ch, and 32ch models available. 64ch NVRs are available via special order.

What is the furthest distance I can install a license plate reader camera from the target plate area?
We recommend installing our Viewtron LPR camera within 50 feet of the license plate detection zone. We highly recommend that reading our LPR system installation guide here.

Is there any limit to the number of license plate capture events that can be stored on the NVR's hard drive?
No. There is no numeric limit. You are only limited by the amount of hard drive space that you have available on the NVR.

What is the maximum speed that vehicles can be traveling when capturing license plates?
The Viewtron LPR cameras can record license plates of vehicles traveling up to 75 MPH or 120 Km/H.

Are there any monthly or yearly software licensing fees?
No. Unlike most of the other ALPR cameras and software solutions available, Viewtron ALPR cameras and ALPR software DOES NOT have any recurring fees. NO monthly or yearly licensing fees.

I want to use this LPR camera in an area with high traffic flow and higher speeds. How many plates can be detected per second?
The Viewtron license plate recognition system can detect 3 license plates per frame of video. One second has about 15 frames, so in theory, the LPR camera can detect 45 license plates per second. However, this rate of detection varies greatly depending on how much of a horizontal and vertical angle there is to the plate detection zone. It also depends on how large of a plate detection zone is configured in the LPR software and the minimum / maximum license plate sizes that are setup.

Can the license plate recognition on NVR trigger an alert to let you know when unwanted license plates are detected by the camera? Like a license plate whitelist / blacklist?
Yes. You can enable a push notifications for the unrecognized plate event on the mobile app for iPhone and Android. You can create a license plate database on the NVR to identify the plates that you authorize / recognize.

Can Viewtron LPR cameras work with access control gates
Yes. You can integrate Viewtron LPR cameras with gate access control systems using the following methods: alarm relay output, Wiegand, RS-485, software development API / SDK. You can watch this video demo to see how these ALPR cameras can control access past a traffic gate.

Can this system read license plates in the rain?
Yes. Please check out our license plate reader rain test video here.

Do you have wireless LPR cameras?
We do not have LPR cameras with built-in WIFI. However, you can use one of our wireless security camera bridge systems to connect one or more IP cameras (including our LPR camera) to a Viewtron NVR. Check out the wireless LPR camera system that we setup at CCTV Camera Pros office.

What happens if a car / vehicle is missing the license plate?
Viewtron LPR cameras can detect when a plate is missing and it will still capture the event and record the vehicle.

Can these systems capture license plates at night?
Yes. Please check out the night-time license plate capture video here.

Do you have wireless LPR cameras?
We do not have LPR cameras with built-in WIFI. However, you can use one of our wireless security camera bridge systems to connect one or more IP cameras (including our LPR camera) to a Viewtron NVR. Check out the wireless LPR camera system that we setup at CCTV Camera Pros office.

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.


Night Time License Plate Capture

License Plate Capture at Night

Check out this video to see the amazing night-time license plate capture capability of the Viewtron LPR-IP4 camera. CCTV Camera Pros does not typically recommend installing license plate reader cameras at the height and angle seen in this installation on the front of Mike's house. However, our testing shows that although the automatic license plate recognition software (ALPR) does not work reliably at this angle and distance, the license plate capture (LPC) works awesome. To make it easier to locate all of the LPC events, Mike uses this IP camera with AI security software to detect all of the vehicles driving through the license plate detection zone. This bookmarks all of the vehicle detection events on the video player timeline on the NVR, which saves a lot of time when reviewing recorded video surveillance footage.



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.

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.

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.

AI Functions

Some of our LPR systems include Viewtron AI security cameras that are capable of car detection. Using these AI cameras as overview cameras is very handy in license plate recognition applications. Here are some of the AI functions that are supported by Viewtron AI cameras. Please check the specification for the camera you are interested in to confirm which AI features are supported.

Vehicle Detection

AI Security Camera Vehicle Detection

The vehicle detection function of Viewtron AI cameras is much more reliable than video motion technique used by a non-AI camera. Traditional video motion detection produces a lot of false alerts. A well trained AI camera can detect cars and motorcycles in real time and with 99% accuracy. Object detection events can trigger alarms such as video recording, mobile app push notifications, DVR buzzer, photo snapshots, and email alerts. Watch the above video to see a vehicle detection demo.


Person Detection

Person Detection AI Security Camera

The person detection function of Viewtron AI cameras works the same as vehicle / car detection. An intrusion zone is mapped out on the DVR interface. The only difference is that human detection is selected in the setup, instead of vehicles. The red rectangle is the intrusion zone in in the above screenshot. You can see when Mike crosses over the intrusion zone, he is detected as a human and an alarm event is triggered. This dome IP camera with AI was used to capture the above screenshot.


Face Detection

AI Security Camera Face Detection

The face detection function of Viewtron AI cameras makes it easy to trigger alarms based on a human face appearing within the view of the camera. The above screenshot was captured using a Viewtron IP-A4D dome AI camera connected to a Viewtron IP camera NVR. When a face is detected, the event is recorded in the NVR's database. Thumbnail images can be displayed (like you see above) for easy access to playback the recorded video of the facial detection.


AI Camera NVR

AI Camera NVR

All Viewtron IP camera NVRs support the AI functions that you see above. However, only certain IP camera models support specific AI functions.
