    Problems With New HFW5241E-Z12E

    ::HUGG:: ::FIST PUMP:: ::CHEERS:: To @bigredfish. I think the B&W is PERFECT. Seems focus stayed. Even when it went "night mode". Made a few more adjustments. During the day, it seems a bit "dark" on the plates, but its legible. Seeing if I can make some changes there. I think its just the...

    Problems With New HFW5241E-Z12E

    I feel like that was a big facepalm to me! Duh! Change earlier, let it focus, then when the ambient light changes, it shall stay "focused". I will try B&W first, then night profile earlier. The problem i MIGHT have with changing night earlier, is when I have my settings to 1/500 for the...

    Problems With New HFW5241E-Z12E

    Schedule does NOT affect focus. (At least for me). When it changes to 'night' profile it tries to refocus, when it changes to 'day' profile, it will refocus again (but work because of day). B&W is NOT the problem. The Focus does not stay where I say to keep it, even with SCHEDULE enabled. IS...

    Problems With New HFW5241E-Z12E

    Manually setting the camera profile, does NOT affect the focus, the focus is off every night time, since it has nothing to "focus" on, while during the day, the camera will refocus within 5-10 seconds. I essentially need a script to click "simulate sunset" twice at sunset time....since the...

    Problems With New HFW5241E-Z12E

    Using the built in profile, would mean you would have to change the timing every month or two though right? As sunset changes times as days go on. I guess if my 30 second delay does NOT work, id rather be changing the settings every few weeks to ensure correct focus, then relying on automation...

    Problems With New HFW5241E-Z12E

    Anyone able to work around the lost focus issue with these? I am using the script, HAVE been using the script, and just started to look into it more, and noticed (at least yesterday) after changing from day to night script (that has a different focus) that sometimes it will change the ZOOM, but...

    OpenALPR Tool - Save and Query CSV Exports

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news @DLONG2 and @Gymratz Somehow, wasn't running either program for a bit. Started them both back up. LPR Downloader connected to database fine, imported like a few thousand plates (since it missed quite a few days). So that is working. Had a suspicious vehicle...

    You can edit the code to change the date so you don’t get this. All it is is the date range is “wrong” so you click ok and just fix your date range and it’ll work. If you don’t like clicking ok you have to edit the code.

    OpenALPR Advice?

    I used CLIGET in firefox to get the command, then tweaked it to add the "date/time" at the end, however, now that I am using OpenALPR/LPRDownloader/LPRViewer, etc, I do not download them anymore.

    IPC-HFW5231E-Z12 LPR from 137 feet

    sounds like the FOCUS is messing up, try going into the focus step, changing it to step 1, or even 5, and micro adjusting the focus, and then matching it up to what is in the program.

    Mask out in openaplr software. Go to video. Mask an area. Just draw over the plate. But remember if the car moves out of the masked area it’ll start over. So block a good portion of that area.

    OpenALPR cloud API (free calls reduced to 1000/pm)

    DLONG, yes, uses processing power to constantly "read" the parked plate. I tried customer service, and was told "it needs to constantly evaluate the video" so I asked regardless of motion detected or movement? and the answer was to just "mask out the area if it bothers you". While I get its a...

    now I get this unrelated to other stuff but when I run it in "auto download" mode, it just goes minute after minute of "downloading" but never adding anything to the db either.... I apologize for this, it seems like I hit a wall so early.

    It stepped through no problem..... however i thinkthe problem is still with adding to DATABASE, as AUTO download, letting it run, does NOT add anything to the database. So I used your idea of "save to history" and put a breakpoint there.... Looks like no data is being parsed to the DB
