License Plate Reader Technology For Parking Enforcement

License Plate Reader (LPR) technology is a hot topic in the security world. It facilitates patrols at residential communities because Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR) cameras transmit vehicle information in real-time. In fact, it is one of the most effective residential parking enforcement methods in multifamily communities. Thanks to LPR technology security personnel can more quickly and effectively pinpoint parking violations and enforce property parking rules.

How Does LPR Technology Work?

LPR technology consists of mounting hands-free, high-speed cameras to patroller vehicles that are scanning and photographing as the patroller drives through a property. LPR cameras capture and combine multiple images into one single high-quality image. The photo is time and location stamped, uploaded to a central database, and run through an optical character recognition software that uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to determine license plate numbers.

LPR software then compares plates with an approved vehicle list, as well as a list of vehicles with violations or restrictions. If any discrepancies are found, patrol personnel receive instant notification to their patrol laptop prompting them to take action. The system then documents and stores license plate information, dates and times of infractions, and citation types.
