If the SharpZ3 system includes the AUX PoE expansion module, you can connect additional context cameras to the system or you can install wheel-imaging cameras on the patrol vehicle.

Before you begin

Connect wheel-imaging cameras or auxiliary cameras to the PoE expansion module.

What you should know

  • On the Auxiliary cameras page, you can associate up to two wheel-imaging cameras with SharpZ3 cameras. Typically, left and right wheel-imaging cameras are associated with left and right SharpZ3 cameras. However, you can also associate one wheel-imaging camera with more than one SharpZ3 camera.
  • If you are using the Aux PoE module to power third-party hardware, no configuration is required in the Sharp Portal.


  1. Log on to the Sharp Portal.
  2. From the Configuration menu, click Cameras > Auxiliary cameras.
    The page lists the SharpZ3 ALPR cameras that are installed on the base unit.
  3. Click the Assigned auxiliary camera field for a SharpZ3 camera and select the auxiliary context camera or wheel-imaging camera that you want to associate with the SharpZ3 camera.
    • The same wheel-imaging camera can be associated with more than one SharpZ3 camera, typically one per car side.
    • The Assigned auxiliary camera field displays expansion module slot and port, for example, EXP 1 - AUX PoE port 1.
  4. Click Save.

After you finish

Configure wheel imaging settings in Genetec Patroller™. For more information, see the Patroller Administroator Guide.
