To raise hits against hotlists defined on the Federation™ host, you must configure the ALPR Manager role on the host so that it can connect and receive reads from the federated sites.

Before you begin

  • Configure your Security Center Federation™ system as needed.
  • On the federated site, make sure the following configurations are set:
    • At least one ALPR Manager role is active.
    • All the required ALPR units and Genetec Patroller™ units have been added to ALPR Manager role.

What you should know

IMPORTANT: To ensure optimal performance, configure a unique ALPR Manager role for every federated site that needs to be matched.

Procedure

To configure the federated reads matching feature on the Federation™ host:

  1. From the Config Tool home page, click System > Roles, and then select the ALPR Manager you want to configure.
  2. Click the Properties tab, and then enable the Matching option.
  3. In the Federated reads matching section, click to add federated ALPR or Genetec Patroller™ units.
  4. In the Federated reads matching dialog box, select the entities for matching.
    You can select entities by doing either of the following:
    • Click a federated role.
      NOTE: This selects all the corresponding child ALPR units. Also, any future units added to this role are automatically selected.
    • Click individual ALPR and Genetec Patroller™ units under a federated role.
  5. Click Apply.
  6. Click Apply on the Properties page.

To turn off the federated reads matching feature:

  1. In the Federated reads matching section, click to add federated ALPR or Genetec Patroller™ units.
  2. Click the Properties tab, and then click Matching option.
  3. In the Federated reads matching section, click to edit federated ALPR or Genetec Patroller™ units.
  4. In the Federated reads matching dialog box, clear all the selected federated entities and then click Apply.
    IMPORTANT: If the Matching option on the ALPR Manager role is disabled without removing the selected entities from the Federated reads matching section, the federated site continues to forward reads. This can negatively impact system performance.
  5. Click Apply on the Properties page.
