The Extension page is available from the Configuration > Connectivity menu. Use the Extension page to configure where the SharpV sends LPR data.

Extension type
Select an extension type from the drop-down list.
  • None
    The default state.
  • FTP
    Sends LPR data to an FTP server. Configure the following:
    Server
    Enter the server name and location for the LPR data.
    Username
    Enter the username for the server.
    Password
    Enter the password for the server.
    Test connection
    Click to determine if the server address can be reached by the SharpV.
    Content template
    LPR data is sent in XML format, using the template shown. You can change certain elements if you choose.
    Export context images
    Export the context images (in JPEG format).
    NOTE: Information on context images is not applicable to SharpV ITS cameras.
    Export LPR images
    Send the plate images (in JPEG format).
    Retain data when the connection is lost
    Select this option for plate reads to be saved locally in the SharpV database if the connection with the server is lost. The system attempts to reconnect with the server every 30 seconds. Stored reads are pushed to the server when the connection is re-established.
    Send sample
    Click Send a test plate to verify that the system can connect to the server using the configured settings.
  • HTTP: Sends LPR data to an HTTP server. Configure the following:
    Server
    Enter the server name and location for the LPR data.
    Username
    Enter the username for the server.
    Password
    Enter the password for the server.
    Anonymize LPR data
    The camera hashes the license plate using the SHA-1 algorithm. When you add an alphanumeric salt (cryptography) to the license plate number, it increases the security of the hashed output. Adding the same salt on all of the cameras in a network means that the same license plate produces an identical hash on all cameras. This allows the external system to recognize the identical hashes as a the same vehicle while still maintaining privacy.
    IMPORTANT: If the salt is changed after it is set, it must also be changed on all other cameras. Changing the salt breaks the link between old reads and new reads.
    Ignore certificate errors
    Select this option when sending LPR data to an HTTPS server that does not have a trusted certificate. The SharpV will not send the LPR data to an HTTPS server that does not have a trusted certificate, unless this option is selected.
    Format
    Select the format for the LPR data. You can select either JSON or XML format.
    Export context images
    Export the context images (in JPEG format).
    NOTE: Information on context images is not applicable to SharpV ITS cameras.
    Export LPR images
    Send the plate images (in JPEG format).
    Retain data when the connection is lost
    Select this option for plate reads to be saved locally in the SharpV database if the connection with the server is lost. The system attempts to reconnect with the server every 30 seconds. Stored reads are pushed to the server when the connection is re-established.
    Send sample
    Click Send a test plate to verify that the system can connect to the server using the configured settings.
  • Security Center (legacy)
    Send LPR data to Security Center. Configure the following options:
    This unit manages the connection to Security Center
    Select this option if you want the SharpV you are currently configuring to manage the connection to Security Center. You must enter the following:
    Server
    The address of the Security Center server.
    Port
    Enter the Live - Listening Port of the LPR Manager role on the Security Center server.
    Test connection
    Click to determine if the server address can be reached by the SharpV.
    Discovery port
    Port on which the SharpV listens for discovery requests. If you chose Security Center, the port must match the discovery port entered on the LPR Manager Properties page.
    Control port
    Port used in Security Center Config Tool when creating a new LPR unit (SharpV) manually.
