This section introduces you to the main components of Genetec Patroller™.

A Notification bar The information displayed in the notification bar depends on how Genetec Patroller™ is configured.

Generally, you’ll see basic information, such as your current location (street address or GPS coordinates), the current time and date, your Genetec Patroller™ username, parking enforcement rules (if applicable), and so on. There are also icons to notify you if a connection has been lost, or if an offload didn’t complete in a previous session.

The cloud icon shows whether or not Genetec Patroller™ is sharing plate reads with other patrol vehicles.

B Search Search for captured reads and hits.
C Plate review reel See plate reads live as they occur.

Depending on how Genetec Patroller™ is configured, a hit causes the plate review reel to switch from displaying reads to displaying unacknowledged hits.

You can review reads and hits from the plate review reel, and search for specific license plates.
  • To view more information about a read or hit, tap the item on the plate review reel.
  • To navigate through the list, swipe the plate review reel left or right, or touch and hold the left and right arrows. You can also type CTRL+G and use the slider to go directly to a specific read.
  • To resume live plate reading at any time, tap Go live.
D Selected read Tap a read to review it in the information panel, and see its location on the map (if maps are installed).
E Go live button Tap to resume tracking live reads and view the patrol vehicle's position on the map (if maps are installed).
F Information panel See information about a read or hit such as the context image, ALPR image, and so on. Tap the image to switch between displaying the context image and the map in the main viewer. Tap the license plate text string to edit the plate.
G Main viewer Displays the patrol vehicle's current location on the map, as well as the different types of reads and hits for your AutoVu™ configuration:
No overtime rule, permit list, or zone selected. Reads are in grey, hotlist hits are the color defined by administrators in Config Tool (red by default).
