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

What you should know

  • You can select an overtime rule manually, or let Genetec Patroller™ automatically select it for you using the Auto-selection option.
  • You may have more than one overtime rule to choose from, so you need to know which overtime rule applies to your patrol area. If you’re using an overtime rule and permit list together, make sure to choose the ones that correspond to each other.
  • If an overtime rule cannot be enforced it will be greyed out. For example, if you’re patrolling on a weekday, an overtime rule that applies only on weekends will be greyed out. If you have a large list of overtime rules loaded in Genetec Patroller™, this helps you see which rules you can actually enforce at the time you’re patrolling.
  • 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. Select the appropriate overtime rule for the zone.
  3. Click OK.
    Click Cancel at any time to return to the main window and None to clear the currently selected overtime rule.

After you finish

After you select the appropriate overtime rule, do your first Genetec Patroller™ pass through the zone to log the parked vehicles’ positions. When you do a second pass make sure you select the same overtime rule that was used for the first pass. You can tap Show due in the Genetec Patroller™ Main window to see which vehicles are due for enforcement and where they are located.
