Smart Camera Setup

Visitor express integrates with leading ANPR camera providers to give real time acknowledgements of all car arrivals. The integration can be typically be performed in two easy steps, depending on whether this is a new camera installation or you are integrating ith an existing camera. If you require a new camera, then you can order one directly from the Visitor Express and we will arrange for the complete installationa and integration service.

If you wish to add your own camera, follow these three steps.

Step one identify your camera type you wish to use

The cameras can very in cost and features, but fundementally they all provide a number plate read that is passed to Visitor express via the access queries api call. You can integrate your camera to provide this data feed to visitor express using the built in platewatch service in Visitor Express standard and Visitor Express Enterprise.

Step two

Define a new camera with the admin setup. name your camera according to the parking area it monitors access to. I.E name in ‘main carpark’ if this is the main parking area etc.
