The Overtime window lets you select the overtime rule to enforce for the zone you’re going to patrol.

Before you begin

What you should know

  • If there is a conflict when Auto-selection is enabled you will be prompted to resolve it manually. For example, if two rule enforcement areas overlap, you must pick the rule you want to enforce.
  • When you select an overtime parking rule to enforce, if your system is registered to use Plate link, a Downloading reads message is displayed. To ensure that all overtime violations are detected, wait until the # reads downloaded message is displayed and the Plate link icon displays a check mark () before continuing your patrol.


  1. In the main Genetec Patroller™ window, tap Overtime.
  2. Tap Auto-selection.


When you select Auto-selection, the Current zone selection window closes and the Overtime icon in the Genetec Patroller™ main window will change to indicate that Auto-selection is on.

When you patrol through an enforcement zone with Auto-selection enabled the following occurs:
  • A sound will notify you when the Genetec Patroller™ vehicle enters and exits the zone. If you have text-to-speech enabled you will hear the name of the zone.
  • The time you enter the zone will be displayed in the Genetec Patroller™ main window.
  • The color of the icon will change to reflect the color that was configured for the rule.
You can tap Show due in the Genetec Patroller™ main window to see which vehicles are due for enforcement and where they are located.
