In the ALPR task on the Properties tab, you can configure the general ALPR Manager role settings and optional AutoVu™ features. The availability of certain features depends on your Security Center license.

XML export

The XML export settings are used to send ALPR Manager reads and hits to third-party applications. Reads and hits are sent live as they occur.
XML templates folder
Specify where the XML templates folder is located. You’ll find default templates in Program Files (x86)\Genetec Security Center X.X\Add-On\LPR\XMLTemplatesSamples\XMLExport. There are XML templates for each type of ALPR event (plate reads, hotlist hits, overtime hits, permit hits, and shared permit hits).
NOTE: In most cases the default template can be used.
XML export folder
Specify the folder that contains the XML files exported by the ALPR Manager.
Time format
Enter the time format used in the exported files. As you set the time format the information field displays what the time format will look like in the XML file.
To identify the units of time, use the following notation:
Notation Description
h Hour
m Minute
s Second
: Must use a colon (:) between the hour, minute, and second units.
hh,mm,ss Display time with leading zero. For example: 03:06:03 represents 3 hours 6 minutes 3 seconds.
h,m,s Display without leading zero. For example: 3:6:3 represents 3 hours 6 minutes 3 seconds.
tt Include A.M. or P.M. If using a 12-hour clock, you might want to use A.M. or P.M. notation. Unit can be preceded with or without a space. For example, HH:mm:ss tt displays 17:38:42 PM.
Lowercase h 12-hour clock.
Uppercase H 24-hour clock.
Date format
Select a date format to use in the exported files. You can choose either MM/dd/yyyy or yyyy-MM-dd. For example, yyyy-MM-dd displays 2016-06-21.
