Step 6. Enter your Plate Recognizer API Token in the field. Indicate the location of the Plate Recognizer SDK if you are using the SDK. Enter the Region code(s) if you want.

Please note that the Free Trial API Cloud Plan has a 1 lookup per second limit. If you send more than 1 lookup per second, the other image(s) within that second will be ignored by our Snapshot API Cloud.

The Advanced Camera Settings page now looks like this with the fields filled out. In your case, MY_PLATERECOGNIZER_TOKEN will be replaced with your actual API Token, of course.

Configure ContaCam Motion Detection for License Plate Recognition

Step 1. When your camera is connected, you will be prompted to set your camera’s basic settings. Otherwise, you can click Settings > Camera Basic Settings to set your motion detection parameters.

Step 2. Set the time delay that will elapse between the first motion frame and the frame sent to Plate Recognizer. For example, if a car enters the camera view and gets detected, you can estimate by testing when the license plate will be in view. That time delay is what you want to enter in “Drop shorter than” parameter.
