I'd like to get the HFW5241E-Z12E camera and set up an LPR system at home. What free, preferably open source software is available to perform the processing? I have a blueiris computer, with an nvidia gpu (T600).

I'd like to keep track of the cars passing by, so I'd like to get an MQTT message along with a jpg capture, and I can write code to save it to a database for further processing.

Here is a thread about the program:
