Setting up Plate Recognizer to run with Blue Iris and your choice of cameras is easy. Just follow the steps below:
Set Up Cameras. You can use any IP camera you wish. Read tips on how to set up your cameras for ANPR.
Download Blue Iris. Go download Blue Iris and then install it on a Windows PC.
Connect Cameras. Hook up cameras to Blue Iris Video Management Software.
Activate Plate Rec. Blue Iris is pre-integrated with Plate Recognizer. Just enter in the Plate Rec API info.
Set Motion Detection. See steps below to set Motion Detection.
Optimize Motion Detection for Vehicles. When motion is triggered in BI, it will automatically send image to Plate Recognizer. By setting up Zones and also Weights in motion detection, we can avoid animals running across the road. Why? Because the motion will be triggered by a “heavy object” that passes from Zone A to Zone B.
See Dashboard. Get full results of decoded plates in Plate Recognizer Dashboard.
Use Webhooks. Forward the decoded plate info to another system using our Webhooks. This feature is mainly for software developers!
