License Plate ID & Capture
All ProVue NVRs are equipped with advanced AI (Artificial Intelligence) built right into the software. It provides the ability to identify license plates and send alerts if a known or unknown plate is detected. The system automatically detects, captures, and compares plates against a whitelist, blacklist, or unknown and can perform custom responses for each of them. The system automatically creates a video and snapshot of each plate which can be searched in the database. Several variables must be considered to reliably capture plates. Follow these rules and you’ll reliably capture plates.
The unit stores the video footage on internal hard drives. The size of the hard drive and the recording options determine the total number of days the system can store. Click here to choose the right hard drive for your needs.
