With each release, new features, enhancements, or resolved issues are added to the product.

The following LPR enhancements are included in Security Center 5.6 SR2.
Edit plate reads for a parking zone
You can now edit reads for vehicles entering and exiting a parking zone during a parking session.

The following applies when editing a read captured during the vehicle's entry:

  • The occupancy count of the parking zone does not change.
  • No new parking session is created unless you are editing a NOPLATE read.
  • When editing a NOPLATE read, a new parking session is created at the time the vehicle entered the parking zone.
  • If the parking session is a Pay-by-Plate session, the paid time, violation, and grace period are reevaluated.
  • If the edited read is an exact match to an active parking session, the plate number and plate state is updated in that session.
    NOTE: Reads can be edited in the Parking sessions task and Parking zone activities task. NOPLATE reads can be edited using the Security Desk Reads report task or the LPR event tile in the Monitoring task.

The following applies when editing a read captured during the vehicle's exit:

  • The occupancy count of the parking zone does not change.
  • If the new edited plate is an exact match to the entry read of the vehicle, the active parking session is closed.
  • If the edited read is an exact match to an active parking session, the plate number and plate state is updated in that session.

For more information about this feature, see Editing license plate reads in a parking zone.

Improved parking zone occupancy count for Unknown vehicles and NOPLATE reads
Unknown vehicles and vehicles that produce NOPLATE reads are now counted when entering or exiting a parking lot. A NOPLATE read does not create a parking session, but can be edited to create a parking session. For more information about this feature, see How parking zone occupancy is calculated.
Shared permit support for a parking zone
If a vehicle enters a parking zone where another vehicle with the same permit ID is already parked, a shared parking violation is raised. The shared permit feature is disabled by default, and must be enabled using the Server Admin console command. A new tile has been added in Security Desk so you can see both the vehicles in question, and the parking zone and permit ID information for them. For more information about this feature, see About shared permits in AutoVu™ Free-Flow.
