Yes, I remember that!

Now is it possible you could send me some of the images day/night that you have?
Everyone has a different position on where the camera is and I just wanna see what I can work on.
I thought it might be useful to have some short clips of the captures and some which were missed. All clips are short, no more than 13 seconds and usually less than 10.

Here are a few successful captures:

And finally, some pics showing different angles of good captures:

Awesome, this is perfect!

Now the question is, do I look more into a application you tie in your camera too? or am I just working to capture the license plate from images/videos?

I guess at this point folks would be just looking for something that works and is cheaper than Rekor or Plate Recognizer.

I was thinking that between Deepstack and some program to read text, it might be doable. Folks here have created a custom deepstack model based on their field of view to take a picture when the plate is in view and draw a box around the plate. Once that image is taken and not trying to be analyzed real time going 45mph, maybe a text reader could read the plates if the picture is provided to it with the plate delineated in a box?

In addition to all the attempts at LPR out on GitHub, I believe that Amazon's Recognition has this ability to read plates as well, so maybe your purchasing power could make that cost-effective?

when I run view master I get unhandled exception has occurred in your application
procedure or function sp_LPR_AllPlates has too many arguments specified

i have done a new install on a different computer and still get the same error as above, also the downloader is not working i think it has something to do with the times line 505 and 509 in the downloader code

str_UTC_Offset = "%2b" + str_UTC_Offset;
}


string _url = "" + str_StartDate + "T" + str_StartHours + "%3A" + str_StartMinutes + "%3A00" + str_UTC_Offset + "%3A00&end=" + str_EndDate + "T" + str_EndHours + "%3A" + str_EndMinutes + "%3A59" + str_UTC_Offset + "%3A00&order=desc&format=csv";

Curious what time zone you are in, or if your PC has an unusual date and time format?

i am in the uk
Within your OpenALPR CSV files, each record's row has two time stamps. This is how mine looks:

epoch_time_end
2021-12-26T11:56:11.920Z

Yours should be similarly structured. Being in the UK, each of your records should be showing the true time, as epoch time is based on GMT. In my case, the epoch time is ahead of me by 8 hours, and Gym's code has to do a conversion based on the PC's local time.

Your CSV's epoch time is structured the same and shows the true local time already?

The epoch time on the csv file is good
but download manager will not down load
If i change time on computer to utc -01.00 download manager works

Looking for some guidance on the Pushover notifications. I created an account and then downloaded the iOS app. I created an API key for the LPR Downloader and put that key in the Token section in settings. I put my pushover user key in the User section in settings. If I make up a fake license plate number and click test, the application fails. If I put in a real one from a car that just passed my house and click test, nothing happens. I don't get a pop up on my phone. Am I doing something wrong with the test box? Do I have to install the pushover desktop app in order for the notification to get sent? I tested sending a notification from the pushover webpage to my phone and the notification went off, so I think that piece is setup correctly.

EDIT:
Apparently, I have push setup correctly, the test button just doesn't do anything (at least on my machine) or I don't understand what I am supposed to enter in the text box before I click test... I set my car to alert me via push and it did today.

Hmmm. Does the Push notifications work okay from their pushover.net website? I believe they have a way to test the feature there. Also, you don't need to install their app on the local machine in order to leverage PushOver.

I have Just now added the guide on the PDF walk thru post on how to configure the Pushover with this tool.
