We have created a quick, effective way to get license plate recognition with Network Optix. NX alerts Plate Recognizer of motion events and creates a bookmark of the motion event. We then grab a short video clip to analyze for ALPR.
This is a cloud-to-cloud integration, so there’s nothing to install or fiddle with on-premise!
Step 1.1. Sign up on Plate Recognizer.
Step 1.2. Click on your email address in the upper right hand corner and select Activate NX.
Step 1.3. On the Plate Recognizer Activate NX page, enter your NX Server username, password and Server URL.
Step 1.4. Enter the Country Code(s), such as us-fl for Florida or gb for the United Kingdom. Full Country Codes can be found here.
If your server is not directly accessible via the Internet, then proceed to Step 1.5. Otherwise, go to Step 2.1.
NOTE: Please do Steps 1.5-1.9 if your server is not directly accessible via the internet.
Step 1.5. Connect your server to the NX cloud then use the cloud proxy URL which is in this format:[system id].relay.vmsproxy.com
Step 1.6. Check the next screenshot for where the system id is located. So like in this case the URL to use is (just an example):de36beaa-d1c2-477d-bd8e-0c5f06e3afa3.relay.vmsproxy.com.
Step 1.7. Go to System Administration Settings. Right click to popup the menu.
Step 1.8. Click on the Cloud tab then enter your cloud credentials and connect.
Step 1.9. Login to the Cloud Portal to verify and get your System ID.
Step 2.1. To add your Cameras to Plate Recognizer, click on the + sign under Action.
Step 2.2. Enter your Camera UID then click Submit.
Step 2.3. In Network Optix, identify that camera. Right click on that Camera Name and select Camera Settings.
Step 2.4. Turn on Recording for that selected camera.
Step 2.5. Turn on Motion Detection for that selected camera.
Step 2.6. You will need to configure 2 Rules for each of the cameras added to Plate Recognizer.
For the Bookmark Rule:
For pre- and post-recording, you can leave it at 5 seconds.
Step 2.7. For the Motion Detection Rule:
Then click OK.
