Security Center

Security Center AutoVu™ is the automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) system that automates license plate reading and identification. Deployed in both fixed and mobile installations, it lets you extend your physical security into your parking lots and perimeter, so you are always aware of vehicles moving in and out of your facilities.

AutoVu™ Sharp cameras capture license plate images, and send the data to Genetec Patroller™ or Security Center to verify against lists of vehicles of interest (hotlists) and vehicles with permits (permit lists). You can install AutoVu™ in a fixed configuration (for example, on a pole in a parking lot), or in a mobile configuration (for example, on a police car). You can use AutoVu™ for scofflaw and wanted vehicle identification, city-wide surveillance, parking enforcement, parking permit control, vehicle inventory, security, and access control.

The following diagram shows how a typical AutoVu™ system works:
