This section describes the Pay-by-Plate Sync settings which are available in the Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool’s Operation tab.

Settings Description
Disable Enforce button on validation error
ON
Disables the Enforce button in Genetec Patroller™ if there is a communication error that prevents Live Infraction Validation from validating the hit.
OFF
Does not disable enforcement if there is a validation error.
NOTE: The option Disable Enforce button on false hits supersedes this option. If you allow enforcement of false hits, this option has no effect.
Disable Enforce button on false hits
ON
Disables the Enforce button in Genetec Patroller™ if Live Infraction Validation confirms the captured plate is valid and is in the provider’s system (false hit).
OFF
You will receive a message informing you that the hit is invalid, but you will be allowed to enforce it if you choose.
Update permit data on false hits
ON
Genetec Patroller™ updates your selected permit list if the Live Infraction Validation confirms the captured plate is valid and is in the provider’s system (false hit).
OFF
Permits are only updated when Security Center gets new information from the parking provider, and then updates Genetec Patroller™ using the Periodic Transfer value (which should be set to one minute). As a best practice, turn this setting off.
NOTE: If you turn this setting off, make sure that permit updates are not set to “0” in Security Center Config Tool, or permits will not be updated automatically.
Update permit data on permit selection
ON
When you select a permit to enforce in Genetec Patroller™, the permit is automatically updated with the latest information from the parking provider’s system.
OFF
Permits are only updated when Security Center gets new information from the parking provider, and then updates Genetec Patroller™ using the Periodic Transfer value (which should be set to one minute). As a best practice, turn this setting off.
NOTE: If you turn this setting off, make sure that permit updates are not set to “0” in Security Center Config Tool, or permits will not be updated automatically.
Show synchronization status on permit selection
ON
Displays a popup window after you select a permit thatshows the synchronization status between Genetec Patroller™ and Security Center.
OFF
The popup window is not displayed.
IMPORTANT: If you turn this setting off, synchronization will still occur if the option Update permit data when selecting a permit is enabled. However, you will not know when synchronization is complete, or if there were any errors. It is recommended that you leave this setting on at all times.
Security Center communication port Enter the port number to use for connecting to the Security Center Pay-by-Plate Sync plugin role (default is 8787). This must match the port entered in Security Center Config Tool for the setting Genetec Patroller™ communication port.

IMPORTANT: Do not include a trailing slash after the IP address.
Security Center URL (failover 1) If you have failover configured for the Pay-by-Plate Sync plugin role, enter the IP address (in the form of a URL) of the first failover server.
Security Center URL (failover 2) If you have failover configured for the Pay-by-Plate Sync plugin role, enter the IP address (in the form of a URL) of the second failover server.
