I've been lurking the LPR forum for the past week to learn how to do LPR. It's a personl project and to be honest, law enforcement will probably not use my LPR reading and clips as full evidence to catch the suspect. But I'd still like to educately analyze the cars that come in and out of my streets. Spending a ton of money isn't an option, but for about $150 a camera as I recently learn here the 2mp Dahua starlight can do wonders. What I gathered is the non-lpr camera doesn't have the "built in software" I suppose this mean it logs all the plates info? So how is this acheived with non-lpr camera? I'm looking for free software options as the LPR software is too rich for me. I'm seeing 500-1000 which I'll never get ROI on. I see OpenLPR pop up a lot, I registered for the trial but since I don't have a camera to play with I didn't get to do anything else but log in.
