This section lists the settings found in the Genetec Patroller™ Properties tab, in the ALPR task.

In the Properties tab, you can view information about the computer hosting the Genetec Patroller™ entity (you cannot edit the Genetec Patroller™ properties). You can also configure sound management, acknowledgment buffer settings, and a hit delay for the Genetec Patroller™ unit.
Lists the properties of the Genetec Patroller™ in-vehicle computer.
IP address
IP address of the Genetec Patroller™ computer.
Version number of the Genetec Patroller™ application.
Genetec Patroller™ installation type(s).
Serial number.
Serial number of the Genetec Patroller™.
Machine name
Name of the Genetec Patroller™ computer.
Updater Service version
Displays the updater service version running on the Genetec Patroller™ computer.
File association
Select how the Genetec Patroller™ behaves with hotlists and/or permit lists:
Inherit from ALPR Manager role
Genetec Patroller™ uses the hotlists and permit lists associated with its parent ALPR Manager. This is the default setting.
Associate specific hotlists or permit lists with the Genetec Patroller™ unit rather than the ALPR Manager. If you later want to move the Genetec Patroller™ entity to another ALPR Manager on your system, the hotlist or permit list will follow.
Sound management
Configure Genetec Patroller™ to play a sound when reading a plate and/or generating a hit, and choose whether sounds should be played even when Genetec Patroller™ is minimized.
Play sound on hit
Plays a sound when Genetec Patroller™ generates a hit.
Play sound on read
Plays a sound when Genetec Patroller™ reads a plate.
Play sounds even when minimized
Play sounds even if the Genetec Patroller™ window is minimized.
Acknowledgment buffer
Specify a buffer restriction that limits how many hits can remain unacknowledged (not accepted or rejected) before Genetec Patroller™ starts automatically rejecting all subsequent hits. You can also choose (by priority) which hotlists should comply with this restriction.
Reject count
How many unacknowledged hits are allowed.
Reject priority
When you create a hotlist entity, you can specify a priority for that hotlist. This setting tells Genetec Patroller™ which hotlist(s) should comply with the buffer restriction.
Hotlist and permit
Specify the Duplicate hit delay that tells Genetec Patroller™ to disregard multiple hits on the same plate for the duration of the delay. For example, if you set a delay of 10 minutes, no matter how many times Genetec Patroller™ reads the same plate during those 10 minutes, it will generate only one hit.
