Genetec Patroller™ 6.4

If a plate cannot be automatically read by a camera, you can manually capture a plate to add to the Genetec Patroller™ database.

Before you begin

(MLPI only) Select your current location before entering the plate information otherwise the read will not be part of the inventory.


  1. In the main Genetec Patroller™ window, tap Manual capture.
  2. Enter the following information:
    The license plate number you want to capture.
    The plate’s issuing state or province.
    The camera you want to use to capture the context image. By default, Patroller will automatically select the camera that was used for the previous read.

    This option is only available when you have two or more Sharps installed. If the camera used to take the previous read is disconnected or turned off, the orientation defaults to the first camera listed on the Units tab of the Cameras page in Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool. For more information, see the Genetec Patroller™ Administrator Guide.

  3. Tap Add.


The plate is captured, and Genetec Patroller™ generates a hit if applicable.
