    OpenALPR Stopped Saving Cloud Records?

    Anyone else experiencing an outage of new LPR records with the Watchman cloud storage? The OpenALPR client sees and recognizes plates, as they are marked in green as they pass by. But their 'Recent Plates' picture list on the client never has new plates added, and the cloud CSV downloads and...

    Dual Cam Stopped Streaming But BI Sends Motion Alerts?

    Thanks, Peter. It's good to know about the SD card issue, although I hadn't placed an SD card into the camera when it was installed. I did have the old G3 Ubiquiti camera still next to the new Dual cam Starlight, and as a test I changed the port to 24V passive and connected the old G3 back, and...

    Dual Cam Stopped Streaming But BI Sends Motion Alerts?

    I purchased the Dahua dual cam HDBW4231F recently in May, and all was well until yesterday when I noticed the Blue Iris lost the signal to the unit. Here are the symptoms: No signal received to Blue Iris Attempts to log into the camera via browser never return a login screen. I can ping the IP...

    Open Soure ALPR Software - Adaptive Recognition

    Anyone trying this out? I contacted the U.S. franchise in Florida concerning their commercial offerings, but their responses are too slow and unhelpful, probably because I gave my customer status as 'hobbyist.' Update: I went ahead downloaded their free software to check it out, and ran a MP4...

    Need comments/critiques on my LPR proposal

    One idea is to park your own car in the field of view you need, and tweak the settings accordingly. Nothing worse than waiting for a car to drive into view!

    Need comments/critiques on my LPR proposal

    Great location for a front-facing license plate, which are hit and miss here in California. Seems not a lot of vehicle rules are being enforced these days, with overly-opaque drivers' windows, years-old registration tags, missing front plates, and where plates' reflective coatings have been...

    OpenALPR Tool - Save and Query CSV Exports

    Hi nhs. Once the data resides in the DataGridView container then you can click on the column header at the top to sort ascending or descending. Otherwise the query would need to be altered in the code.

    Review-Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam

    Wondering if the pixelation is caused by deformities in the plastic dome, and if so was it caused by age? And 'wedge camera' refers to this Dahua model?

    Review-Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam

    Received from EmpireTech Andy via Amazon Prime today. Got both camera streams connected in Blue Iris in about 10 minutes. What I did was after acquiring the camera in Blue Iris, I went back to the 'Add a New Camera' dialog, and entered the same IP address, same username and password, and after...

    Dahua day/night switch utility - DahuaSunriseSunset

    I'm getting frustrated with the day/night focus issue with my Z12 Dahua. The SunriseSunset utility has been working well in the past, but lately the utility sometimes fails to command the camera to switch modes. Might have to consider a different camera model.

    Exported Clips With Graphic Overlay?

    Wondering about the extra date/time stamp which appears on exported clips. In the 'Convert/Export' dialog there's an option to 'Add the camera's current text and graphic overlay'. When that is left selcted then the exported clip contains an extra line of date/time, and this date/time doesn't...

    OpenALPR - No more free rides

    Looking at this PlateRecognizer.com website, their pricing plans jump from Free for 2,500 look-ups, to $50 a month for up to 50,000 look-ups. My quiet street gets around 3,000 plates a month.

    OpenALPR - No more free rides

    If you have been using their cloud version then the data would be stored on their server, and the images only locally. Not sure of their other products. Maybe send them an email or a ticket asking for the best practice to maintain the data.

    OpenALPR - No more free rides

    Hmm. I am thinking it would just be a matter of copying the installation folder, C:\OpenALPR\ . It contains the image database, too. Not sure if you are reinstalling Windows, and what effect that might have on their client product.

    OpenALPR - No more free rides

    I believe the local images are all stored in a proprietary MDB database file, and the server pulls out the images as JPGs for display whenever asked to.
