That is how I found your thread, which last post was IN 2017...., I asked myself the same. Thank you for starting this thread. It is not very much alive so I could have started a new one but as you probably noticed, not much input. I do hope I can get it alive again (not much hopes tho).I wonder why there is little discussion on cameras with built-in ANPR or LPR function
You are mistaken..The dedicated LPR cameras are no better at capturing the plate than a standard camera. Some have added features like ANPR which is about 90 percent accurate at slow speeds...That is how I found your thread, which last post was IN 2017...., I asked myself the same.

As you described, I wondered the same. All these people trying to capture license plates with 'normal' surveillance camera's where there seems to be solutions doing a much better job. You mentioned Hikvision, me myself I stumbled over the Dahua ITC237-PW1B-RZ.
Where I live there is a saying, 'use the right tool for the right job'.
In my search, initially I had honestly had to look up what LPR and ANPR meant. Since we post in the section LPR (License Plate Recognition) I guess partly there you could have found the answer. I guess otherwise there would have been a section ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) as well.
From what I now understand they are the best tool for the job but there are a couple reasons why these ANPR camera's seem not popular (for private use)
So for this moment in time I guess we will keep reading threads where people with turrets or 100$ cameras ask how best position their cameras for good LPR
- availability (seems it is just a specimen you aint likely to find on ebay/aliexpress, if at all)
- cost (see also availability, can buy these cameras only at certified dealers $$$$)
- operation (although one might believe, these cameras are not to be connected to your 'home-use' nvr and do not work out of the box)
- firmware (every user understand how important updates are and it is simply not attractive when you need to call your dealer, read: $$$)
I was considering something similar. Do you have a script or utility to automate the download process, or do you perform each download manually?To get around the two day limitation I'm running a daily csv download of the plate database. If two weeks passes by and I need the image of the car and plate I can locate the timestamp in the csv export file and review the video for that time.
Paramesh...I am a "Newbie" but I recently installed that same camera with the 8-32mm lens using a Hikvision DS-7716NI-I4/16P NVR...What NVR are you using? maybe I can share my NVR settings!Hi,everyone
DS-2 CD4A26FWD-IZ/P 8- ANPR camera captures license plate but the plate details listed in the NVR is missing the alphabets and has only figures. eg. for the plate number AWX 4523, the listing doesn't list AWX and only numbers are displayed. While the license plate "picture" is alright with everything captured. Appreciate, if someone can advise how to fix this. pic attached
saw this small printany one know anything about DC-CW20CL-AIP200
