Extend the Boundaries of Your Security System

The AutoVu ALPR system automatically identifies and tracks vehicles accessing your facilities. Unified with video surveillance and access control through Security Center, the AutoVu system expands the reach of your security platform to the edge of your facility, allowing you to secure and monitor areas previously left unprotected such as parking lots, ultimately leading to a more comprehensive security approach.

As the heart of license plate-enabled parking enforcement, the AutoVu ALPR system brings together a broad ecosystem of payment and parking enforcement partners. The AutoVu system can be tailored to a wide variety of parking deployments with mobile or fixed cameras for on-street and off-street enforcement.

Key features

Insight That Goes Beyond ALPR

The AutoVu ALPR system offers features that heighten accuracy and increase operator efficiency. In addition, ALPR reads are augmented with context images, time stamps, and GPS coordinates and can include wheel images for strict time-limited parking enforcement. By providing this contextual data, the AutoVu system helps resolve investigations faster and reduces ticketing disputes.

Unification for Greater Situational Awareness

Manage your ALPR needs from a single unified security platform so you can seamlessly link ALPR reads to video and access control events. You can then use ALPR events to trigger actions and alarms across your entire security system. The Security Center platform allows you to investigate events across systems and provides unparalleled reporting capabilities.
