The Genetec approved handheld computer is a rugged device with an integrated camera that lets you manually collect license plate information and export it to Security Center.

Before you begin

You must copy the following folders from the Security Center server to the handheld computer:
  • The MLPI application folder (MLPISmartDevice12 or MLPISmartDevice20).
  • The Zones.xml folder.
For more information about creating and configuring parking facilities in Security Center, see Creating parking facilities.

What you should know

On startup, the eyeWARE application is automatically started as well. If you close eyeWARE, you'll need to restart the application to resume capturing vehicle reads.
