Pay-by-Plate Sync

The Pay-by-Plate Sync plugin establishes a live connection between Security Center, Genetec Patroller™, and one or more third-party parking providers.

Security Center permit entities are used to store the parking provider’s permit data, which allows the Pay-by-Plate Sync plugin to update permit lists dynamically. Changes to permit lists are then sent to Genetec Patroller™ for near real-time plate verification. If you get a hit, Genetec Patroller™ also performs Live Infraction Validation, which confirms that the plate has not been added to the permit list after your last update (false-positive hit).

The following diagram shows the relationship between Security Center, Genetec Patroller™, and third-party parking providers.

Example: Here are some examples of how you can use the Pay-by-Plate Sync plugin:
Long-term parking
Register your license plate on the city website, and pay a monthly fee to park anywhere in a permit-restricted residential area. You aren’t limited to a specific space, and if you keep your account paid up, Genetec Patroller™ won’t raise a hit, and you won’t get a ticket.
Short-term (transient) parking
A tourist can use multi-space pay stations to pre-purchase parking time before heading to a destination. The plate is added to a list (managed by a third-party) and the Pay-by-Plate Sync plugin updates Security Center and Genetec Patroller™ when needed (up to once per minute).
