For SharpV cameras that are installed outdoors, we recommend that you keep the default exposure settings. If you notice that license plates are often under-exposed (too dark) or over-exposed (too bright), you can adjust the exposure settings. However, there are many factors to consider in order to account for changing lighting conditions.

IMPORTANT: Modifying the SharpV exposure settings can greatly impact ALPR performance. Vanity plates, or plates that are damaged or dirty can have different reflective properties. Improving the exposure using a stationary test plate can result in reduced ALPR performance on every-day traffic which includes plates with a wide range of reflective properties. You must test the system after modifying these settings.
