Genetec Patroller™

This section introduces you to the main components of Genetec Patroller™.

A Notification bar The information displayed in the notification bar depends on how Genetec Patroller™ is configured.

Generally, you’ll see basic information, such as the current time and date, your Genetec Patroller™ username, and so on. There are also icons to notify you if a connection has been lost, or if an offload didn’t complete in a previous session.

B Search Search for captured reads and hits.
C Plate review reel See plate reads live as they occur.

Depending on how Genetec Patroller™ is configured, a hit causes the plate review reel to switch from displaying reads to displaying unacknowledged hits.

You can review reads and hits from the plate review reel, and search for specific license plates.
  • To view more information about a read or hit, tap the item on the plate review reel.
  • To navigate through the list, swipe the plate review reel left or right, or touch and hold the left and right arrows. You can also type CTRL+G and use the slider to go directly to a specific read.
  • To resume live plate reading at any time, tap Go live.
D Selected read Tap a read to review it in the information panel, and see its location on the map (if maps are installed).
E Go live button Tap to resume tracking live reads and view the Patroller’s position on the map (if maps are installed).
F Information panel See information about a read or hit such as the context image, LPR image, and so on. Tap the image to switch between displaying the context image and the map in the main viewer. Tap the license plate text string to edit the plate.
G Main viewer Displays the Patroller’s current location on the map, as well as the different types of reads and hits for your AutoVu™ configuration:
No overtime rule, permit list, or zone selected. Reads are in grey, hotlist hits are the color defined by administrators in Config Tool (red by default).
Triangle (Permit lists)
A permit list is selected. Reads are in grey, permit hits are the color defined in the Plate lists tab.
H Camera indicator Indicates which camera on the vehicle captured the read or hit.
I Zoom controls Control the behavior of the Main viewer.
  • To zoom in, tap the (+) button.
  • To zoom out, tap the (-) button.
J Street address or GPS coordinates Displays the current location of the Genetec Patroller™. Click to change the display from GPS coordinates to a street address and vice versa.
K Pause/Resume reading Pauses and resumes plate reading for all Sharps installed on the vehicle.
L Toolbar
Tap to display all unacknowledged hits. Only pending hits are displayed, you must tap Review to see the hits that were processed (enforced, not enforced, or rejected).
Select the permit list to enforce.
Manual Capture
Capture a license plate by typing the plate information manually.
New wanted
Manually add a license plate to Patroller’s local database on the in-vehicle computer, so Genetec Patroller™ can generate a hit if the plate is captured. New wanted license plate values are not part of any hotlist files.
Plate lists
Tap to display active hotlists and permit lists. You can also perform past read matching.
Offload LPR data at the end of a shift.
Adjust basic Genetec Patroller™ options such as volume.
View Genetec Patroller™ statistics, download status, diagnostics, error messages, and version information. You also import your Plate lists using this tab.
Turn plate reading on or off for any individual Sharp camera installed on your vehicle. The icon displayed on the toolbar changes depending on how many Sharps are installed on the vehicle. For example, if you have two Sharps installed on the front of the vehicle (one on the front left and one on the front right) you will see the “Both” arrow icon. When you have cameras installed on the rear of the vehicle, the cameras icon is displayed.
View the live video feed from the Sharp’s LPR camera or context camera. If installed, you can also view the tire cameras' video feed. The icon will appear in red if the video feed is not working.
