    My Speeding Dectector Setup

    We found the Algood Dug Store robbers!!! I made some friends and we solved the crime!! The city cops didn't give two Sh*ts because it's an inside job. Listen to my speech I told them we had a drug house and no one cared or ask me about it. WHY??????? 100k of drugs is in that trailer

    My Speeding Dectector Setup

    The apologies are rolling in. Always accept a sincere apology you are getting what you wanted. No need to hold a grudge. We will do a 4 week data collection but I think we hit a home run. I underestimated how many cared but felt powerless.

    My Speeding Dectector Setup

    Algood City Hall Council Meeting So I have been gathering data for more than 9 months. Time to go to city hall and speak my mind. Boy I believe in God, and karma. A local drug store was broken into that very morning. Guess what? That was one of regulars 50 MPH plus. Police wanted video after...

    My Speeding Dectector Setup

    True but..... They do in a small town. The web traffic to my site blew up at each article. To be honest it's word of mouth. Just calling the paper and asking about ads dropped the numbers. Each time I send details to the city hall as well but it wears off. They locals use the web page and...

    My Speeding Dectector Setup

    A big warning to the people out there thinking of do something similar. I got to talk to a local officer. He suggested to bring up neighbors speeding directly to the neighbor and not waste his time. DO NOT DO THIS. ABSOLUTELY NOT. It never goes well. We had a big increase in speeder percentage...

    OpenALPR - No more free rides

    Did anyone answer this? Yes I use both. The open edition finds the jpg to send to the commercial version. I do this in python. My coding is fairly bad ;) I post a PHP version that just posts to MySQL.

    OpenALPR Webhook to MySQL PHP Program

    It's not there any longer. I can't seem to find the PHP in this wiki. OpenALPR API — openalpr 2.2.0 documentation

    My Speeding Dectector Setup

    <light bulb> <face palm> It occur to me, after listening to my algorithm talk to me, why we are having a 3x speeding increase. These are "out of towners" in search of food. I am NOT kidding. Algood Walmart is basically empty. They haven't restocked in at least a week. I mean holy shit what are...

    My Speeding Dectector Setup

    I could write a book on what I have learned but YOU hit the nail on the head. Right on the mark. Thank you. Guess who 10-5% of the speeder use to be? Government vehicles, "connected people". 1-2% lead foot women drivers. 3% rich mother fuckers. Kids, and redneck truckers seem to very few now...

    My Speeding Dectector Setup

    Interesting during these trying times with little traffic. The speeding has jumped to 15% during certain hours. Traffic is clearly speeding to Walmart which is empty of all staples. People are continue to hoard without anyone stopping them. The big bible belt says "F*&^ your neighbor. The...

    IPC-HFW5231E-Z12 LPR from 137 feet

    Way too much contrast, that's why the bright headlights. 60% would be better IMHO - set gain 40-50 (tweak form there) I did post a setup procedure in my speed detector hardware post, but you are almost there. Good job!

    Question about IPC-HFW5231E-Z12E

    Welcome to the forum. If you are a beginner start reading. Most of the answers are already here in the forum. Then you can ask questions for guidance. That camera has plenty of posts. You will be using OPENAlpr. I use both free version and commercial. The commercial version beats everything else...

    The mystery of the "invisible" license plate on my LPR cameras

    Hopefully not off subject but does anybody have an IR reflective spaint pait I can use for targets? Say spraying an "X" on the road. Marks on posts etc.

    First foray into LPR, with IPC-HFW5241E-Z12E

    Speed Camera?

    It's been two weeks and nothing from support. You can't test it in trial mode? Disappointed. Time for a refund I guess.

    Anyone played with a Dahua Radar connected to their PTZ ?

    They are part 15 FCC certified, so absolutely. Looks cool, but not useful for "speed trap"

    My Speeding Dectector Setup

    Well some time has passed and and interesting thing happened over the holidays that I can't explain. The speeding rates have fallen measurably. Certain days they drift back to 10%, but we had 2-3 this week at %3. I started after a messy Thanksgiving, and people doing 50-60 mph. A week later the...

    My Speeding Dectector Setup

    I would agree with you. However you need a job to travel to, and as you get older medical care. TN has the best medical care if you have great insurance, and leave close to a decent hospital. As far as accountability somebody is forgetting repeated recordings over time will buying them. The one...

    Speed Camera?

    Purchased the software. Having activation issues. No reply yet. The calibration is done by measuring a distance in front of the camera. Would be nice to be able to pull data and incorporate into my system. Let you know how it compares to radar.

    Speed Camera?

    In my limited experience. The speeds will be approximate, and no one is going to take uncalibrated readings seriously. Then they we beat you up about how do you "calibrate it". Which is nothing more the using a calibrated tuning fork to verify speed. You could use a Sportster III with display...

    The mystery of the "invisible" license plate on my LPR cameras

    My question would be why does local PD spray their plates? Op, Question how many feet away? I see this on some plates. Dirty and temp plates in particular. It got better when I moved the target closer by changing angles, something you can't do. More IR light? but if what bigredfish says is...

    My Speeding Dectector Setup

    It called taxes, and I don't pay them to speed without their lights. It was a nice test though. 3 cars, the one speeding was in the middle and the system got it right. It just another example of childish bullshit that goes on everywhere. Adults acting like children.

    Speeder Detection with LPR and RADAR (technical posts only!!)

    Blue Iris is giving me less fits lately. Most of the problems being poor camera voltage, and poor programming of the video overlay. We learned how to get the overlay to work in almost realtime. Plate ID takes 3-4 seconds then posts the results on the video as well as various radar/speed data.

    Speeder Detection with LPR and RADAR (technical posts only!!)

    I replaced the IPC-HFW5231E-Z12E with a IPC-HFW5241E-Z12E Now the adjustments are the same and the results are the same. I'm still adjusting the camera position. Slowly pulling each camera to the left or right depending on vehicle direction. This has the effect of taking a bad picture but...

    This is what the system picked up on last night. Can you guess who that is? Hint I'm paying for it.

    Anybody figure out the web API to trigger a recording to file? I have a IPC-HFW5241E-Z12E

    I would like to directly trigger the camera via web API and store the stream to a file for processing. I haven't found any links to get my a clue on how to do this. The API docs are like drinking muddy water. This would take some pressure off of Blue Iris doing all the pre-trigger and converting...

    My Speeding Dectector Setup

    ok I put pricing up for you. The boxes were half the cost of pelican boxes. The connectors are water resistant and have worked well. They already have those speed boxes. Yes, I was thinking the same but there is a lot more work to do. Solar power, battery back up, and remote internet. Right now...

    Capture plates between these two poles?

    Ah.. ok The PHP I post will get you talking to thw web API directly. But what language are you going to use it to ID cars? The reason I ask is I want to ID vehicles as the pates don't always detect for various reasons. I would like to car count, and let the software know a plate should been...
