A hotlist is a list of wanted vehicles, where each vehicle is identified by a license plate number, the issuing state, and the reason why the vehicle is wanted (stolen, wanted felon, Amber alert, VIP, and so on). Optional vehicle information might include the model, the color, and the vehicle identification number (VIN).
Hotlists are used by both the AutoVu™ Genetec Patroller™ and the AutoVu™ ALPR Manager role to check against license plates captured by ALPR units to identify vehicles of interest.
The hotlist entity is a type of hit rule. A hit rule is a method used by AutoVu™ to identify vehicles of interest. Other types of hit rules include overtime, permit, and permit restriction. When a plate read matches a hit rule, it is called a hit. When a plate read matches a plate on a hotlist, it is called a hotlist hit.
