To integrate different ALPR capabilities to Security Center, you can deploy a fixed AutoVu™ system.

What you should know

Information about how to set up a typical fixed AutoVu™ deployment is provided here. Your process might be different, depending on your specific installation requirements.
NOTE: Settings that are pre-configured during your installation are not listed in this task. For example, when you install Security Center, the ALPR Manager root folder is automatically created on your computer at the location C:\Genetec\AutoVu\RootFolder.


  1. Log on to the Sharp Portal, and configure the Sharp for a fixed AutoVu™ system.
    For information about logging on to the Sharp Portal, see Loggin on to the SharpOS 5.9 Portal.
  2. Configure the ALPR Manager so that Security Center can discover and communicate with fixed Sharp units.
  3. Link an Archiver to the ALPR Manager to store the ALPR images (captured by context cameras, ALPR cameras, and wheel imaging cameras) that are associated with the reads and hits.
    NOTE: You must also enroll the ALPR Processing Unit under the Archiver for SharpX installations where ALPR Processing Unit input/output control is required.
  4. Configure the ALPR Manager server and database settings.
    NOTE: You can also add an additional server to act as secondary server for the ALPR Manager to set up failover. For more information, see Setting up role failover.
  5. If you are using hotlists with your fixed deployment, then create and configure the hotlist entities, and turn on hotlist matching.
  6. If you are using AutoVu™ as an access control solution, then configure the Sharp cameras to grant or deny access to a parking area or other facility.
  7. Specify the Sharp’s location and time zone.
