To send LPR data from the camera to Security Center, you must add the camera to an LPR Manager.

Before you begin

  • To add a camera in Security Center, you must first configure an LPR Manager role.
  • If your camera was shipped with SharpOS 12.7 or later, the LPM protocol is enabled by default. If your SharpV camera is running an earlier SharpOS 12.x version, it is recommended that you upgrade the camera and enable the LPM protocol to take advantage of this secure and reliable connection to Security Center.
    NOTE: If a camera uses the LPM protocol to connect to Security Center, the Active extension in the Sharp Portal is set to Security Center (LPM protocol).

What you should know

  • The steps for adding the camera to the LPR Manager depend on the SharpOS version running on the camera. For more information, see SharpV camera connections to the LPR Manager role.
  • If the SharpOS running on the camera is 12.6 or earlier, you can still connect by configuring the Security Center, HTTP, or FTP extensions in the Sharp Portal.
