LPR Gate Opener For Epic Style and Security

If, like James Bond, you could have your own personal gadget creator, what spectacular invention could make your life better?  It might be tech that gave you a little more luxury, a little more celebrity treatment while at the same time adding convenience and making you look more debonair.

The “quartermaster” in Plate Recognizer’s own research and development division has been busy creating software that can do just that for people with security gates and parking barriers.  Our LPR parking gate is now available to you from California with love.

A gate opener is already a symbol of exclusivity, a sign only certain people are allowed or invited.  When the world is not enough, our LPR gate opener takes that wow factor to the next level.  When you drive up to your parking barrier and sail through like you’ve got top secret clearance, you’ll feel like a tech savvy, classy undercover agent.  And you can extend that VIP treatment to anyone you choose.

How Our LPR Gate Opener Works

Gate Opener, our parking barrier software works like this:

  • This LPR barrier gate application takes license plate readings from Plate Recognizer Stream.  Whenever a vehicle plate is detected, Stream sends the LPR readings via webhooks to the Gate Opener.
  • The Gate Opener compares the license plate against a local whitelist database.  If the LPR reading matches against the whitelist, then Gate Opener will trigger the gate to open by initiating the appropriate input ping.
  • ParkPow maintains the whitelist of vehicles.  Gate Opener periodically pings ParkPow for the latest list of vehicles and updates the local whitelist database accordingly.

So basically, anyone you designate as authorized gets in.  No one else can.  You just need our software and any basic IP camera

It’s your own personal license to thrill.  There are no remotes to keep up with.  Drivers don’t have to roll down their window to enter a code in bad weather.  They also can’t share that code or remote with people you don’t want on your property or in your community.

You control property access via gate opener 24/7.  If you need to prevent someone from entering who previously had access (“I think he’s attempting re-entry…” said Q in Moonraker) you don’t have to worry about changing codes or getting them to return remotes. 

Simply update your list of authorized license plates.  Plus, other authorized drivers have a truly personalized experience and a little bit of celebrity treatment every time your gate opens just for their vehicle.

Why Our LPR Gate Opener Will Make You Feel Like James Bond

Audiences love James Bond because in every situation, he’s as confident as if he owned the place.  There’s never an ounce of self-doubt or hesitation in anything he does.  It’s the same for our LPR gate opener users.  They receive seamless, automatic, personalized entry available only to a select few, and that creates a sense of confidence. 

Bond also stands out because of his style.  He wears a bespoke suit.  He has exacting requirements for his cocktails (“Shaken, not stirred”).  He only uses the best kind of jam on his morning toast. 

Because our LPR gate opener is activated by each driver’s license plate, users receive a stylish welcome with every approach.  Your property appeals to everyone’s innate desire for the good life. Technology you’d expect to find at a high-security facility or on the property of the uber-rich now creates enhanced experiences for you, your staff, your residents and others you choose.

For Bond, timing is everything. That’s part of what makes him look so suave – things just fall into place as events unfold. With an LPR Gate Opener, every time an authorized driver rolls up, the gate opens as if it were scripted.

“I thought Christmas only came once a year,” said Bond, but for LPR Gate Opener users, the magic happens every day. It’s hard not to get spoiled with that type of personalized luxury. And our license plate recognition system even works in snow.

Who Needs Our LPR Parking Barrier Software?

Our LPR Gate Opener makes life easier for anyone who routinely drives through a parking barrier. Anyone who has ever had to get out to unlock and open a gate can tell you it’s a hassle that wears on you a little more every day. Like Bond said in Goldfinger, “That’s just as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs.”  If you have a gate, automatic is definitely the way to go. 

Once you no longer need to operate the gate manually, our software makes it easy to trigger operation with license plates instead of remotes or keypads.  The LPR parking gate upgrade improves convenience, security and curb appeal for a number of user types.

LPR Parking Barrier for Gated Communities and HOAs

Diamonds are forever, and so are good impressions.  People buy in gated communities because there’s an expectation of exclusivity and safety.  They want to know it’s okay for their kids to play outside and that when they go to bed at night, bad actors can’t sneak in. 

They also typically pay more for their property because gated communities and HOAs are exclusive.  Not everyone can afford to live there.  They value amenities that are a cut above.

An LPR gate opener keeps out drivers who don’t have clearance.  It enhances property owners’ perception of their experience coming and going.  An automatic parking barrier also improves property value because it’s an amenity prospective buyers know is only available in limited communities.  It’s “sheer magnetism, darling”.

LPR Gate Opener for Camp Sites

When people tent camp or RV camp, their stays are typically short. If managers aren’t on-site full-time, it can be tough to make sure campers only come and go on days for which they’ve reserved a stay.

Once their stay is over, simply change or update the list of license plates.  If campers try to overstay their welcome they’ll find the parking barrier no longer opens at their vehicle’s approach.  They’ll have to either pay to return or find a new place to stay.

LPR Parking Gate for Personal Home Use

Individuals have long been using our ALPR for smart homes.  Now you can make your home feel even more like your castle with a parking barrier that gives you:

  • Increased security – Prevent theft and vandalism and keep kids and pets from running into the road.
  • Enhanced perimeter control – if your property is fenced, an LPR gate opener helps you control the only access points. 
  • Improved privacy – Whether you’re dodging door to door salesmen, nosy neighbors or paparazzi, they’ll have to get past the gate.
  • Boosted property value – If you put your property on the market, prospective buyers will be attracted to the enhanced security and convenience.

LPR Barrier Gate for Construction Sites

While your residential or commercial property is under construction, expensive building materials often sit unattended.  Contractors and subs come and go and nosy neighbors like to wander through.  A regular gate with a lock secures the premises, but it doesn’t give you the best type of flexible control.

An LPR gate opener lets you input license plates for the framing crew one week, then change that access when they’re done with their part of the job.  Then update the list to include plumbers and electricians, adding drywall subs, painters and so on as needed.

You get improved security and privacy.  Curious individuals can’t hurt themselves on the property because they can’t get in.  Plus, if vandalism happens or materials come up missing, it’s easy to see who had access to your construction site during that time frame.
