With tight parking for 198 units, this program allows us to monitor and manage vehicle registrations, illegal parking and limit vehicles per unit. The team is wonderful to work with, quick to respond, and helpful with all of our questions. Would highly recommend to anyone with tight parking as it helps to manage the daily headache of parking in a community.

License Plate Readers Software

When managing your parking lot, you should be able to identify trespassers easily. That is where ParkingPass.com’s License Plate Reader (LPR) feature comes into play. We even offer three different LPR options to choose from:

  • Mobile App License Plate Reader
  • Vehicle Mounted License Plate Reader
  • Stationary License Plate Reader

With ParkingPass.com, you can install a stationary license plate reader in your lot, similar to those used on red light cameras. You can also install a LPR on a lot enforcement vehicle, which can even read license plates in motion. 

For more accessible parking lot management, you can download our app to use our LPR feature. By using the app, you or your car park managers can scan license plates on every car parked in your lot from your phone. Our license plate readers are here to help you reduce patrol time and manage your lot more efficiently.

License Plate Readers FAQs

“This is critical to our enforcement partners who provide mobile patrolling services to speed up their patrol duties at the property. From a fixed LPR perspective, ParkingPass can understand exactly which vehicles are entering and exiting the property real-time, while creating alerts to interested parties for any unauthorized entry to the property. This helps for overall safety and management of the parking.”

Mathieu Boileau - Owner ParkingPass.

Types of LPRs

  • Mobile App

    By downloading our app, you can scan license plates with your phone to easily identify who should and shouldn't be in your lot.

  • Car Mounted

    When using a car-mounted reader, you'll be able to scan plates from the front of your vehicle, and the data and information will appear on a laptop in the vehicle.

  • Stationary

    Commonly used on traffic lights or telephone poles, you can arrange these license plate readers throughout your lot to cover a large area.

How Does License Plate Recognition Technology Work?

License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology, also known as License Plate Readers, uses specialized cameras and software to capture images of license plates from vehicles. If you use stationary LPRs, cameras are strategically placed in parking facilities, entry/exit points, or along roadways. If you use a car-mounted LPR, a camera will be placed on the front of your vehicle that sends its data to a laptop inside the vehicle. 

LPR mobile apps allow you as a property manager to scan license plates on parked cars from their phones. Once a picture is taken, the LPR software processes the images, extracting the license plate number from the photo. This data is then converted into a machine-readable format, making it accessible for various applications. 

ParkingPass.com’s LPR feature uses high-resolution cameras and advanced recognition algorithms to capture license plate data accurately. What sets ParkingPass apart is that you have all the features you need in one parking management system. This also automates parking and your parking enforcement system, increasing efficiency.

Therefore, the software can instantly cross-reference the captured information with the database of registered vehicles in your lot. This enables parking facility managers to track and manage parked vehicles, identify authorized users, and enforce parking rules efficiently.

What Are the Potential Benefits of Implementing LPR in Our Parking Facility?

Implementing license plate recognition technology offers numerous advantages for parking facilities, such as:

  • Enhancing security by automatically identifying and monitoring vehicles entering and exiting the premises. 
  • Detering unauthorized access and preventing vehicle theft or misuse
  • Saving you time and money by allowing you to reduce on the amount of in-person patrol time you use
  • Streamlining the parking process, reducing congestion and providing a smoother experience for parkers.

At ParkingPass, our LPR feature enhances security and offers convenient parking solutions for property managers and users. Property managers can automate access control, track occupancy in real time, and generate valuable reports for decision-making. 

On the other hand, users enjoy the convenience of hassle-free entry and exit using their registered license plates, reducing the need for physical permits or tickets. This streamlined approach results in improved operational efficiency, enhanced user satisfaction, and an increase in revenue for the property manager.

What Are the Costs Associated with Installing and Maintaining LPR Systems?

The costs associated with installing and maintaining LPR systems can vary depending on the setup’s complexity and the parking facility’s size. Initial expenses typically include purchasing and installing LPR cameras, software licenses, and any necessary hardware infrastructure. Maintenance costs may involve regular software updates, camera maintenance, and technical support.

ParkingPass.com offers a cost-effective solution for LPR implementation. Our software is designed to work seamlessly with various camera hardware, reducing the need for expensive infrastructure changes. Moreover, our user-friendly interface simplifies maintenance and ensures minimal downtime. 

What sets ParkingPass apart is that we include everything in your estimate, so you know exactly what you are paying for before you sign on with us. This goes beyond LPRs, as license plate readers are only one of over 60 different features offered on our software. By providing an all-in-one solution for parking management, ParkingPass.com minimizes the total cost of ownership and maximizes the return on investment for parking facility owners.

Are There Any Legal and Privacy Considerations When Using LPR Technology?

Using LPR technology involves legal and privacy considerations. When collecting and storing license plate data, parking facilities must comply with local and national privacy laws. These include data protection regulations and the Public Records Act, to name a few. It’s crucial to have clear privacy policies in place, inform users about data collection, and secure the data against unauthorized access.

ParkingPass.com’s software incorporates thorough data protection measures, ensuring that license plate data is stored securely and accessed only by authorized personnel. We always inform you when you need to inform your residents and lot users of data collection and usage policies.

In addition, our software allows customization to align with specific privacy regulations. By making legal compliance and privacy protection a priority, ParkingPass.com ensures our LPR technology adheres to industry and ethical standards.

How User-Friendly Is the License Plate Reader System for Property Managers?

The user-friendliness of an LPR system is crucial for its successful integration and operation. Users, including property managers and parkers, should find the system easy to navigate and understand. A complex or confusing license plate reader can lead to frustration and operational inefficiencies.

At ParkingPass.com, we strongly emphasize the user-friendliness of our software. Our LPR feature is integrated into our software interface, making it straightforward for property managers to configure and operate. This way, you have everything you need for parking management in one place. In addition, our in-app license plate reader offers a simple and intuitive way to scan license plates to monitor the usage of your lot.

What Security Measures Are in Place to Protect LPR Data from Unauthorized Access or Breaches?

Security is the top priority when dealing with sensitive license plate data. Unauthorized access or breaches can lead to privacy violations and legal repercussions. To mitigate these risks, LPR systems must implement robust security measures.

We employ encryption protocols to protect data transmission and storage at ParkingPass.com. Access controls and authentication mechanisms ensure that only authorized personnel can access the system. Regular security audits and updates strengthen our software’s resilience against potential threats. By implementing a comprehensive security framework, ParkingPass.com ensures the protection of LPR data, giving users peace of mind.

Is the LPR System Customizable to Meet Specific Needs?

Every parking facility has unique operational requirements, and an LPR system should be able to meet each facility’s unique needs. Customization options allow property managers to tailor the system to specific operational workflows and policies.

Like all parts of our parking management software, ParkingPass.com’s LPR system is highly customizable. Property managers can configure access rules, connect permits to license plates, and enforce LPR policies to align with their operational needs. This flexibility ensures our software adapts to various parking scenarios in commercial settings, residential complexes, universities, or other environments. The ability to customize the LPR system empowers property managers to optimize parking management efficiently.
