No it does not. This was designed around scraping the OpenALPR data.I apologize if this is answered somewhere in this thread, but I'm wondering if this database and viewer can be used locally, independent of an OpenALPR / Rekor Scout subscription.
I was hoping there was someway to feed a BI plate recognition into this utility directly, check for repeats, etc. and then send alerts only if the plate is new, or if it is in a watch list, etc. without that recognition having to be done by OpenALPR.
In my case, I'm using PlateRecognizer since I see fewer than 2500 plates a month. Others are starting to use @MikeLud1 's ALPR module. In both cases, it would be nice to be able to decouple the recognition so that you could then feed the plate into this utility for storage, alerting, historical data, editing, notes, etc.
Anyone know if this is presently possible? Or if not, what might be involved in getting this capability in place? I just think it could be mighty helpful.
Thanks, I wasn't aware of that thread. Let me get to reading.@VideoDad There's this thread that has another method of collecting and displaying plates: Node Red Dashboard for Blue Iris ALPR
I'm not discounting the capabilities of Rekor and the additional information it provides. If I had more and diverse traffic, I might opt for it.What I like about the Rekor ALPR is that it works really well capturing plates and identifying different state license plates. The PlateRecognizer misses almost half of the plates on my street, and I understand that to improve the capture rate it would require some adjustments on the BI camera's settings. The number of plates which ALPR captures each month is beyond the free tier of the PlateRecognizer, and the first price point would be $50 a month.
Yes there are alert images. The idea was to make a call to save that image, the plate number, etc. and then use the database for quantifying plate hits, check trends, etc.Considering the PlateRecognizer (PR), as I understand, it only inserts an entry into the BI log file. It would be an easy task to open the log file and parse for these plates, and enter them into the database. Or if the need was just to collect unique plates then to look up for the plate and insert if it is new. Part of the usefulness of the existing tool is to quantify plate hits to see trends.
Even so, with ALPR there's a photo which can easily be acquired, copied and referenced within the local database. With PR, I don't see an easy way to acquire an image. Is there?
No Currently, There is no way that I can think of to do it through the GUI. However, you can write that number on a piece of paper with a Sharpie and flash it in front of the LPR camera. That will likely do the trick.Question can I input a license plate number that has never been read by my system to a status group so I can be notified when it hits?
Nice, Yes this can work. I have plenty of Company name from vehicles, which gets registered as a plate every now and then, can use one of those and edit it to the plate number as needed. Thank you so much Dlong for that idea !!Doesn't the viewer allow for editing of a plate? Maybe pick a commonly-seen plate and edit just the one occurrence. Once the target plate is in the database then can it be tagged for special alerts?
I asked a similar question July last year but got no reply I don't think anybody knows. I'm not even sure that Gymratz is still supporting this programAnyone know the code location for the daily license plate report and the license plate alert email. I would like to change the format up
