Read & Track License Plates

If your business owns a parking lot, or a large dumpster and receiving area where vehicles come and go, being able to read license plates on vehicles from the vantage point of a security camera is a highly valuable capability. Not only can you read license plates, but you can also set your security camera system to memorize and recognize particular license plates that pass through the camera's field of view. So you can even set your surveillance system to alert you when a particular vehicle comes onto your premises.  Geovision has cameras that are designed for reading and recognizing license plates from a distance:

The GV‐LPR CAM is a weatherproof IR camera that provides 570TVL high-contrast video in deep shadow, strong or low sunlight, which allows it to read license plates in almost any lighting environment.

Key Features:
  • Built-in powerful IR LED illuminator
  • Built-in always-on blower  
  • Weatherproof (IP66 standard)  
  • Sun-shield

iPhone application for surveillance systems 

Being able to view your surveillance footage (whether live or recorded) so readily is helpful to anyone who owns a surveillance system. It not only gives the owner the ability to check on things while they're out, but also allows the owner to review past footage whenever and wherever they want to do it. These applications for the smartphone are invaluable and can be accessed almost instantaneously. For quality control, quick references, screen shots and just general peace of mind, you can't go wrong with GeoVision's smartphone apps.
