ANPR settings consist of Settings, List Management, Black List Mode, White List Mode and Visitor Mode.
Do as following 5 steps to enable ANPR function.
Camera will start to detect license plate and NVR will start to receive license plate information once these steps are done.
Step1: Select a channel and enable ANPR function.
Step2: Select processing resolution. The further distance you detected, the higher resolution is needed. 1280*720 by default.
Step3: Set ANPR function effective time.
Step4: Set detection parameters including detection trigger, repeat plate checktime and features identification.
Detection Trigger: Always and Alarm Input are available. It will only detect when alarm input is triggered if you select Alarm Input.
Repeat Plate Checktime: The same license plate information won’t be received on NVR within the time you set.
Features Identification: The selected features identification will be shown in ANPR logs interface.
Step5: Set the detected ROI region which can be up to 4 regions. License plate will only be detected in the ROI regions.
Make a license plate list for your own NVR ANPR system.
Upload license plates and set them with different license type here. 10000 plates can be added at most.
Kindly note that the list is exclusive for NVR, working with all LPR cameras you add. It won't synchronize with the list on camera side.
There are two methods to add license plates:
① Add one by one.

Step2: Input the license plate and select license type.
Step3: Click OK and then the license plate will be added into the list.

Black List Mode/White List Mode/Visitor Mode
We provide you three modes for better event management, which is based on two license types.
Black List Mode: Manage event for license plates in black list.
White List Mode: Manage event for license plates in white list.
Visitor Mode: Manage event for those license plates do not have license type.
Steps for settings:
Step1: Enable Black List Mode/White List Mode/Visitor Mode as your demand.
Step2: Set effective time which means Mode works during that.
Step3: Set action including Audible Warning, Email Linkage, Event Popup, PTZ Action, Alarm Output and Trigger Channels Record.Note:
Do not forget to enable these modes, set effective time and record action for corresponded mode, ensuring that you can get real-time video when license plate is detected (Effective time and record action is enabled by default.). You can refer to How to check ANPR record part for detailed record settings.
3. How to check real-time license plate?
At the beginning, you need to switch the preview mode to ANPR mode.
There are two methods to enter live view ANPR Mode:
① Right click the mouse and select ANPR Mode as preview mode.
② Select ANPR Mode on live view bottom tool bar.
After entering ANPR mode, the real-time license plate information will be shown on the left of the interface once it get detected.
License plate information includes Plate Snapshot, Channel Name, License Plate Number, Detected Time and Plate Type.
Two License types:
No plate type will be shown if the license plate does not exist in Black/White list.
However, you can right click the license plate information to quick add it to Black/White list or delete it from Black/White list.
Besides, you can click the license plate information to check the latest X seconds (10s~20s) video.Note:
1) X = 10 + Pre Record Time You can set Pre Record Time in Storage -> Video Record -> Record Settings interface.
2) Ensure that there is available HDD on NVR and correct record settings is made, so that you can check the record on live view. Please refer to How to check ANPR record part for detailed record settings.
3) Ensure that NVR can get the license plate information. Please set TCP which is the default mode as Post Type. It can be set in Camera web page -> Advanced Settings -> ANPR -> Settings interface.
4. How to check ANPR record?
Before checking record, please ensure that you have done correct settings to make record work.
Step1: Set Smart Analysis as Record Type in Storage -> Video Record -> Record Schedule interface.
Step2: Black List Mode or White List Mode or Visitor Mode is enabled as your demand.
Step3: Effective time and Trigger Channels Record action of Black List Mode/White List Mode/Visitor Mode is set (Full effective time and trigger channel record are set by default).
Then NVR will record when license plate is detected .Note:
Generally, record is triggered by event. If you just enable ANPR function without enabling Black List/White List/Visitor modes and setting record action, that means you just enable the function while record action is not set. Then no record will be triggered. So it is necessary to do all above three steps if you want to trigger record.

Entering Playback -> Event Playback -> Smart Analysis interface.
Input corresponded information and click search button to search.
Click record to play the video searched out .
