Monitoring LPR events in tile mode

By default, LPR events are displayed in the canvas in tile mode, which allows you to view information about the read or hit, view the plate images from the events in high resolution, print hits, and so on, in individual tiles.

To monitor LPR events in tile mode:

  1. In the Monitoring task, select an LPR event in a tile, or double-click an event from the event list.

    The following information about the LPR event is displayed in the tile by default:

    • Entity name: Click to hide description
      Name of the entity you are monitoring, shown in the tile toolbar.
    • LPR event name: Click to hide description
      Event type (License plate read, License plate hit, and so on), shown in the tile toolbar.
    • Tile background color: Click to hide description
      • Black (Default). Plate read event.
      • Red (Default). Hotlist hit event.
      • Green (Default). Permit hit event.
      • Blue (Default). Shared permit hit and overtime hit event.
      NOTE: You can change the default colors of LPR events from hotlists, overtime rules, and permit restrictions in Config Tool. For more information, see the Security Center Administrator Guide.
    • Context image: Click to hide description
      Wide-angled image of the vehicle that was read by the LPR unit context camera.
    • Plate image: Click to hide description
      Image captured by the LPR camera and the OCR interpretation from the event.
    • Plate number: Click to hide description
      License plate number.
    • Plate state: Click to hide description
      Origin of the license plate.
    • Date and time: Click to hide description
      Date and time of the plate capture assigned to the hit rule that matched the plate.
    • Address: Click to hide description
      Location of the unit when the plate image was captured.
      NOTE: The address is only shown if the geocoder module is enabled in Config Tool. If Genetec Patroller™ is not equipped with maps, then the address is only shown if the geocoder is enabled to resolve the GPS position.
    • (Hits only) Hit rule: Click to hide description
      Hit rule that produced the hit.
    • (Overtime hits only) Tire/Overview image: Click to hide description
      Wheel image captured by the wheel-imaging camera that is mounted at the back of the Genetec Patroller™ vehicle. Wheel images are only shown if the hit was captured by a Genetec Patroller™ that supports wheel imaging.
  2. To check the watermark status of the LPR event, right-click inside the tile, and then click Verify watermark.
    A watermark confirms that an LPR event is valid (for example, that it has not been tampered with). Security Center adds a watermark to all reads and hits recorded by fixed Sharps, and Genetec Patroller™ adds a watermark to Sharps installed on the vehicle. The three watermark statuses are the following:
    • Good ().
    • Invalid ().
    • If no icon appears, the watermark has been tampered with.
  3. (Hits only) To view more information about the hit, such as its hotlist attributes, click in the tile (user, accept or reject reason, plate state, and so on).
  4. (Hits only) To print the event data as proof of the violation, click in the tile.
