Filtering out invalid characters from hotlists and permit lists

When a hotlist or permit is created or modified, you can specify the character set that applies to the license plates in the list based on a selected language, and what the LPR Manager does if it detects a list with invalid characters (non-alphanumeric characters).

What you should know

To view detailed information about how many invalid entries were deleted or modified, you can also save the logs of the filtering process.

To filter out plates when modifying hotlists and permit lists:

  1. From the Config Tool home page, click System > Roles , and then click the LPR Manager you want to configure.
  2. Click the Properties tab.
  3. Under Plate filtering, select the types of characters to filter on from the Character set drop-down list (Latin, Arabic, or Japanese).
  4. In the Invalid plate number section, select one of the following options to specify how the LPR Manager handles invalid records:
    • Modify record: Click to hide description
      Deletes any non-alphanumeric characters from the plate number. For example, the plate number “ABC#%3” becomes “ABC3”.
    • Remove record: Click to hide description
      Deletes the entire entry that contains invalid characters from the list.
  5. To log the filtering process, select the Log filtering option.
    The plate filtering logs will be saved in the AutoVu™ root folder: C:\Genetec\AutoVu\RootFolder.
  6. Click Apply.
