1. What is LPR

LPR/ANPR(License Plate Recognition ) is a a technology that uses optical character recognition on images to read vehicle registration plates . For Milesight, the LPR algorithm is embedded in cameras are able to recognize, capture and upload license plate images on their own and intelligently.

2. Countries that support LPR

For Milesight, the LPR function only applicable to the following countries:

Countries that support LPR

CIS (former Soviet Union)

Countries that support LPR
Note:

The algorithm of Milesight LPR doesn’t support text recognition other than letters and numbers.

3. Milesight LPR Cameras

* LPR 12x H.265+ Motorized Pro Bullet Network Camera

* LPR 12x H.265+ Mini PTZ Bullet Network Camera

* LPR H.265+ ABF Pro Box Network Camera

* LPR H.265+ Vandal-proof Motorized Mini Bullet Network Camera

* LPR H.265+ Motorized Pro Bullet Network Camera

The integration with NVR/CMS is in processing, which is going to bring another supreme experience.

Notes:

Installation Angle Considerations


To increase the accuracy of license plate recognition, be sure to install the LPR cameras properly to capture the license plates with the correct image size, lighting conditions and camera angle. The following highlights is the precautions of installation angle

A: Installing the camera in front of the vehicle (Recommended):

The captured image should be filled with a full width of the vehicle.

B: Installing the camera slightly to the side:

To avoid capturing unnecessary contents in the image, the camera should be installed in a higher position(Vertical angle is less than 30°; Horizontal angle is no more than 30°; Tile angle is less than 5°) to capture the front part of the vehicle.

[Confidence Level]: You can set the confidence level from 1 to 10. When the confidence level of the license plate is higher than the set confidence level, it will push the license plate image to the logs interface..

[Repeat Plate Checktime]: Set the time interval for repeatedly reading license plates to effectively avoid duplicate identification of parking vehicles.

[Feature Identification]: Check Region, Direction, ROI_ID or All to enable Features Identification, it will display the corresponding information on the logs interface.

Note: Region detection only supports DACH region.

[LPR Message Post Settings]: Check the checkbox to enable LPR Message Post. It will push information to some third-party devices or software that are compatible with ours. Information can be pushed by RTSP, TCP or HTTP.

More information about LPR Message Post, please refer to Milesight-Troubleshooting-Integration between LPR Camera and NVR(VMS).

How to use LPR function better under night condition


To increase the accuracy of license plate recognition under the night mode. In some special circumstances, you can't get clear license plate capture by adjusting WDR and HLC. Then we recommend that you can set the following options in advance.

Step1: After log in the web, and go to “Basic Settings “→ “Image “→ “Enhancement“ interface. Check the checkbox “BLC”, then select “off” the BLC region, remember to save your settings by check the “Save” button, There will be shown in the blue box as below:

LPR Logs

Step2: Set reasonable exposure time and brightness, go to “Basic Settings “→ “Image “→ “Day/Night Mode“ interface. Then set the Exposure level to 1 and the Minimum Shutter to 1/1000 and keep other settings;

LPR Logs

Then be sure to install the LPR cameras properly to capture the license plates with the correct image size, lighting conditions and camera angle.

Note: If you still can't get clear license plate capture according to the above settings, we suggest you to reduce the exposure time.

LPR Logs

The license plate captures obtained under night conditions are shown below:
