Posted by Ryan Miyagishima

Have you ever seen someone lean over, next to a vehicle, and mark one of the tires with something? If so, that 'something' is probably chalk, and that person is probably a parking patroller, trying to enforce a time limit for that parking space.

License Plate Recognition: Simple, Inexpensive, and Accessible (Finally)

Posted by Ryan Miyagishima

The concept of License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology seems simple enough. Use a camera, scan a plate, and utilize the information for better parking management and security. Surely, in today's world of booming technology, there must be a way to utilize LPR for the little guy - to help make life easier for property managers, security companies, or owners of small-scale parking resources... right?

Sadly, if you've done any digging, you've likely found that most LPR available is prohibitively expensive, requiring heavy investment into physical equipment, software, and operational costs. Basically, you didn't have access to this technology unless you were doing big-ticket business with it.

That is - you guessed it - until now.

Why Security Companies Need License Plate Recognition Technology

Posted by Richard Popowich

If you're a manager in a security firm, you know that in order to keep a facility secure, you need to know at all times who's on the premises.

And you also know that, for large facilities, it can become impossible to keep tabs on absolutely everything, especially when you're tasked with managing large or multi-site parking resources.

You're probably familiar with License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology, which can help with managing large volume parking control or substantive traffic flow challenges ... but which have, up until now, been prohibitively expensive, in hard equipment, software and operational costs.

The good news is that inexpensive Handheld License Plate Recognition technology is now available to security companies of all sizes. Read on to find out more.
