    Hello Guys,
    I just got my fingers in this camera from HIKVision, and have the LPR function working... what I would like to do, is to use the LPR whitelist with a control panel/system I am working on.
    Do any of you guys know how I can communicate with the camera to send a license plate to the whitelist table, and also how to delete one in the table, without logging in to the GUI and do it manually ?
    I cant seem to find any information about these commands anywhere, and HIKVision is not much help.

    I see the camera have this kind of integration:
    ONVIF: Capture time & License plate info. accessible
    GENETEC: Capture time & License plate info. accessible
    SDK & ISAPI: Capture time, License plate info., License plate & vehicle picture accessible

    Should I not be able to automate the whitelist table with some code ?

    It would probably have been cheaper and more versatile to buy a much cheaper camera, computer, and use Open ALPR.

    Most of the things you see for this camera don't mention ALPR. Here's what the spec sheet says about this (assuming you have a model variant that actually supports it):
    I wouldn't be trying to manage the whitelist on camera and nothing you posted would imply this is possible. Instead, I'd have something external that takes the information from the camera and decides what to do with it.

    I suggest you search the forum here for threads where things like a Hikvision SDK and Onvif integration are discussed.
