Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)


Powerful ANPR systems and solutions

Automatic number plate recognition is a highly accurate system that uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology to precisely identify information on a number plate and can be integrated with your company’s access control system.

Our ANPR systems are the ideal solution for your tolling and vehicle tracking needs, and for speed and traffic light enforcement. Our range can work up to 25 metres away with a max speed detection of 250km/h.

Streamline vehicle and traffic security

After identification, our ANPR systems can log the date, time and location of the vehicle and carry out actions based on the data. These systems can save the information for later retrieval, or enhance premises access control by opening gates or issuing alerts for blacklisted plates.

While ANPR is commonly associated with law enforcement use such as identifying speeding offences and spotting stolen vehicles, the system has many applications designed for business security and private use.


Keeping you and your business safe

Installing an ANPR CCTV system in a car park enables organisations to ascertain that only authorised cars can enter their premises. This can be easily achieved by connecting the ANPR to a pre-existing access control database of permitted plates and then installing ANPR-linked cameras and barriers into the car park. The barriers will not lift for an unauthorised vehicle, and a security person can investigate via intercom or in person.

ANPR combined with barriers is also an excellent way to streamline entrance to any car park, even a public car park, as they can speed up the payment or visitor management/time and attendance process exponentially.
