The Sharp Portal is a web-based administration tool used to configure Sharp cameras for AutoVu™ systems. From a web browser, you log on to a specific IP address (or the Sharp name in certain cases) that corresponds to the Sharp you want to configure. When you log on, you can configure options such as selecting the ALPR context (for example, Alabama, Oregon, Quebec), selecting the read strategy (for example, fast moving or slow moving vehicles), viewing the Sharp’s live video feed, and more.
NOTE: On a SharpZ3 unit that includes a four-camera ALPR module, each set of two cameras is configured in a separate Sharp Portal which is available from a link on the Maintenance page.
Benefits of the Sharp Portal
- Open Sharp Portals in many tabs
- Web browsers use tab-based browsing, which provides you with a simple way to configure multiple SharpZ3 cameras. You can have many instances of the Sharp Portal open within the same Web browser.
- Secure connection
- You can log on to the Sharp Portal securely using an HTTPS protocol with SSL encryption.
- Use Favorites
- You can easily monitor and configure all the SharpZ3 units on your network. For example, if you have multiple SharpZ3 units on your network, you can add them all to your Web browser’s Favorites folder, and then rename them (for example, SharpNorthParkingLot) for quick configuration and maintenance.
