Unleash the power of automatic license plate recognition

What is XProtect License Plate Recognition?

It is designed to fit XProtect products and Milestone Husky™ NVR units perfectly, and it integrates seamlessly with XProtect Smart Client. With optimized recognition algorithms for more than 200 countries and states around the world and advanced matching logic, you can compare recognized number plates with pre-defined lists and initiate automated actions. Gain efficiency and increase productivity with a wide set of application areas, including access control, theft prevention, and border control.

Prevent losses

Are customers driving away without paying for fuel?

XProtect LPR is an ideal solution for gasoline chains. Using negative lists and third-party integrations, the system can automatically close a gasoline pump if a blacklisted vehicle license plate is recognized at any station in the chain.

Manage parking

Is this car covered by parking subscription?

XProtect LPR can help you reduce the costs and time associated with managing parking subscriptions. Instead of issuing toll collection devices or radio frequency identification (RFID) tags to authorized personnel, XProtect LPR can automatically open a parking lot gate when a permitted license plate is identified.

Regulate access

Should this vehicle be granted access?

Use XProtect LPR to optimize your processes by automatically controlling access to protected areas and premises. The software’s flexible, user-defined match lists make it easy to add license plates belonging to visitors, temporary personnel and delivery vehicles. Once the pre-defined license plates are identified, vehicles are automatically granted access.


Gather evidence

Where was the car in question?

XProtect LPR can be a powerful tool for law enforcement agencies needing to track the movements of a suspicious vehicle. Each time a vehicle passes by a camera equipped with XProtect LPR, it is registered in the system. Using XProtect LPR’s reporting functionality, law enforcement officials can create a report showing all of the movements of a particular vehicle within a specified timeframe. The report includes a video thumbnail of the recognized vehicle, a close-up of the license plate and details about the detection time.
