To ensure that your SharpZ3 cameras read license plates accurately, you must properly align them after they are mounted on the patrol vehicle.

  • Determine which alignment scenario applies to your situation.
  • Make sure you have a AutoVu™ Alignment Kit, with the following tools: tape measure, plumb-bob weight, chalk, and a vertically adjustable target.
  • Install and secure the SharpZ3 cameras.
  • Have a laptop computer available. To verify that the cameras are aligned, you must connect to the Sharp Portal, which displays the camera video feed.
  • Make sure the camera is installed so that the camera roll is parallel to the ground:
    A Level to ground
    B Not level to ground (body roll)
    C Upside down
