File association
Select how the Sharp behaves with hotlists:
Inherit from ALPR Manager role
The Sharp uses the hotlists associated with its parent ALPR Manager. This is the default setting.
Associate specific hotlists with the Sharp unit. This allows you to create Event-to-actions in Security Desk that trigger on that specific hotlist. For example, if you’re using the Sharp to allow access to a parking lot, you would put the vehicle plates on a hotlist, and then associate that hotlist to the Sharp.
NOTE: To reboot a fixed Sharp, click the Reboot button found in the toolbar at the bottom of the Config Tool workspace. If the Reboot button is not visible, log on to the Sharp Portals’s Configuration page, and then select Accept remote reboot requests.
