The Benefits of License Plate Recognition (LPR) Cameras

License plate recognition (LPR) cameras are specialized surveillance units designed to detect, capture and log vehicle license plates.

Unlike standard surveillance cameras that record a wide field of view or are set to tour predefined zones for activity, LPR cameras are specifically deployed for the singular purpose of capturing license plate details.

WCCTV, the USA's leading supplier of mobile video surveillance cameras, outlines below the unique benefits associated with LPR cameras.

The Benefits of License Plate Recognition Cameras for Law Enforcement

LPR cameras are the ultimate evidence-gathering tool. They provide Law Enforcement agencies with critical, indisputable video footage to investigate crimes and secure arrests. 

Right now, Police Departments across America are utilizing WCCTV's rapid deployment LPR solutions to combat illegal dumping, business crime, parking lot theft, and vehicular crimes. 

But what is it that makes them so effective, and what makes WCCTV's product set so unique? 

1. High Accuracy Evidence

WCCTV's LPR Cameras can capture accurate license plate scans in any weather or lighting conditions from vehicles traveling at speeds up to 130mph. 

Standard pole cameras may struggle to provide high-quality video in these conditions, but an LPR camera will deliver usable images every time. 

A combined Pole Camera and LPR solution like WCCTV's 4G Mini Dome + LPR gives you the best of both worlds - full situational overview video delivered in 1080p HD quality from the pole camera along with crystal images of vehicle license plate details from the LPR camera. 

This integrated solution helps law enforcement build complete case files with evidential quality images to secure arrests and convictions.

2. Ease of Use

WCCTV's LPR solutions allow for fully autonomous video surveillance, removing officers' requirements to manually monitor or review video footage.

Our free and unlicensed viewing software automatically converts license plate scans into a text database that users can quickly search for vehicles of interest.

The software directly links to a nationally hosted LPR data server and car detector, allowing users to create hotlists of vehicles of interest. When plates from these vehicles are scanned, users will receive an automatic email alert.

Free up your time and resource and let WCCTV's systems do the hard work for you. 

3. Portability and Versatility

WCCTV's LPR cameras are designed for ease of deployment. Fix the camera to your existing utility pole or building, power, and walk away. 

They can be rapidly deployed to new locations to meet emerging surveillance requirements and help you fight back against illegal dumping, traffic crimes, vehicular theft, parking lot crimes, and more.

Who Else Can Benefit from LPR Cameras?

Such is the quality and versatility of LPR cameras; they are now widely utilized for applications other than Law Enforcement.

Based on our 20 years of experience in the security industry, below are the types of organizations we believe can most benefit from deploying LPR cameras.

Construction Job Site Security

LPR cameras help improve construction job site security. These sites can be dark and poorly lit, so a standard definition security camera might not deliver the video evidence required to help law enforcement investigate crime and secure arrests. 

An LPR camera will capture license plate details no matter how dark your job sites get so that any unwelcome visitors can be promptly tracked by law enforcement. 

The cameras can help manage access control to your sites by creating a 'white-list of authorized vehicles in the software database.

Homeowners Associations

LPR cameras are incredibly valuable in helping law enforcement investigate crimes.

Homeowners associations can benefit from this by deploying cameras in the neighborhood to track cars entering and leaving streets at any time.

This helps with evidence gathering should any crimes occur within the neighborhood to pass onto law enforcement.

Parking Lot Security

LPR cameras can also help manage parking lots and garages, helping to boost security and help with information gathering.

The cameras can help manage access control by linking them to an entry/exit gate, log vehicles entering and exiting the parking area, and assist with any investigations should crimes occur.
