ANPR – Automatic Number Plate Recognition


- Only allow authorised vehicles in to your car parks/sites
- Easily add visitor’s details to allow limited time access
- Stop unwanted guests coming on to site
- Use IR LED lights for night time use

ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) is a highly accurate system that uses OCR (or Optical Character Recognition) technology to accurately identify the numbers and letters on a number plate.

After identifying the number plates on any vehicle, ANPR systems can easily log the date, time and location of the vehicle, and proceed to carry out an action based on the data (save the information in a database for retrieval at a later time, issue an alert should the plates match against a specific database, open a gate, etc.).

While ANPR is commonly associated with law enforcement use (speed ticketing, congestion area charging, identification of stolen vehicles, etc.), the system has numerous applications designed for private use.

By installing ANPR cameras at a car park’s entrance and exit and checking number plates against an existing Access Control database, organizations can rest assured that only authorized vehicles are able to access their premises. Plus, with ANPR and automatic barriers, access to any car park can be significantly improved and streamlined.

Whether your site only requires a simple system with a single PC and scanner or you’re looking for a fully integrated solution spanning a large premises, CCTV Surveillance will be able to provide you the necessary assistance in choosing the ANPR system that best suits your requirements.
