The hotlist settings in Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool determine how the hotlists are used and what is the Patroller behavior with different hotlist options.

Procedure

  1. Open Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool.
  2. Go to Operation > Hotlists.
  3. Configure the following options:
    Allow consecutive hits
    Turn on to allow sequential hits for the same plate. For example, if you capture a plate that raises a hit, and then capture the same plate again, it will raise another hit.
    NOTE: If you turn this setting off, Genetec Patroller™ would need to capture a new plate before allowing a hit for the same plate.
    Enable new wanted
    Turn on to allow Genetec Patroller™ users to add New wanted hotlist entries.
    Enable new wanted management
    Turn on to allow Genetec Patroller™ users to edit and delete New wanted entries from the database.
    Enable comments for new wanted
    Turn on to activate a text box in Genetec Patroller™ where you can enter a comment when entering a New wanted hotlist item.
    New wanted expiry options (days)
    Create the expiry options available to the Genetec Patroller™ user when adding a New wanted entry.

    For example, let’s say you create the options 1, 5, and 10. When you add a New wanted entry, you’ll be able to choose for that entry to expire in 1, 5, or 10 days. If you don’t provide an expiration option, New wanted entries will remain in the Genetec Patroller™ database indefinitely.

    Add expiration option ()
    Enter an expiration option (in days). Maximum value is 100.
    Delete expiration option ()
    Delete an existing expiration option.
    Enable Selectable hotlist
    Turn on to allow Patroller users to select which hotlists among those available on the Genetec Patroller™ are used to generate Hits.
    Enable past read matching
    Turn on to compare reads from the past with a new hotlist, or new wanted plates that have been manually added.
    Past read matching look back
    Enter how long in hours you would like Genetec Patroller™ to look back in the database for reads that match a new hotlist, or new wanted entry.
    Bypass hit enforcement
    Turn on to bypass the additional step of enforcing a hit after accepting it. When turned on, Genetec Patroller™ assumes you enforced the hit, and will not display the Enforced/Not enforced prompt.
    Auto-enforce hotlist hits
    Turn on for Genetec Patroller™ to run in unattended mode. Hits are automatically accepted and enforced without requiring user interaction.
    NOTE: If you have configured “Hit accept” or “Hit reject reasons”, they are ignored when this setting is on.
    Display hits by priority
    Turn on to display hits in Genetec Patroller™ by the priority you specified in Security CenterConfig Tool.

    For example, if you have set “Hotlist A” to a higher priority than “Hotlist B”, hits generated from Hotlist A will be displayed first (on the right of the Genetec Patroller™ scrollbar).

    Use simple matcher
    Turn on Simplematcher when using very large hotlists with millions of entries. You’ll also need to turn off OCR equivalence in the ALPR matcher. For more information about configuring ALPR matcher settings, see Configuring ALPR matcher settings.
