License Plate Recognition System for Advanced Vehicle Access Control
As a leader in Access Control systems and biometrics technologies, ZKTeco Europe has developed ZK-LPR Totem, a waterproof license plate recognition totem for ZK-LPR Car ID. Designed to install an optional C3 access controller, DIN Rail devices or any third-party device, to enable access links between the camera and the security system. ZK-LPR Car ID is an innovative vehicle LPR camera with an embedded master-slave solution for an affordable license plate recognition system.
Our new plug and play standalone system is ideal for vehicle access control, Stop & Go toll systems or any LPR system applications where a vehicle stops or practically comes to a complete stop.
How does ZK-LPR Car ID License Plate Recognition System work?
ZK-LPR Car ID license plate recognition system delivers advanced vehicle access control requirements, thanks to its high-performance IP camera, BL-852Q38A-LP, and powerful embedded software that provides consistent and reliable results.
The embedded LPR software in ZK-LPR Car ID executes a license plate recognition algorithm inside the camera for ease of use in access control, tolling and weighing scenarios.
When a vehicle reaches a checkpoint, ZK-LPR Car ID’s license plate reader captures the video image and converts it into data. This data is processed with sophisticated algorithms and cross-checked within its internal database allowing ultrafast verification and custom entrance control decisions to be set-up within its configuration.
Although in traditional LPR camera systems the best performance is always achieved with one camera per lane, ZK-LPR Car ID lets you set up multiple lane camera support. With a single LPR Camera, ZK-LPR Car ID can recognise the license plate numbers of vehicles travelling in two different lanes, and determine the incoming or outgoing plates in each traffic lane. This way, installation and costs can be optimised.
ZKBioSecurity Parking Module for an integral and comprehensive solution
ZK-LPR Car ID is thoroughly integrated into ZKBioSecurity Parking Module, if you require enhanced access control functionalities, and also allows integration with third-party software. With ZKBioSecurity, you can perform double verification for higher security, access the camera's view from the software and view log details of LPR activity.
The offline LPR camera operation works in standalone mode using the lists generated by the ZKBioSecurity software in the personnel section: “registers plates” and “authorized plates”. The camera will send each LPR capture to the FTP directory to be able to consult detected plates from the software ZKBioSecurity. The register of offline logs can be programmed.

LPR Car ID License Plate Recognition Camera features
ZKTeco’s high-performance camera LPR Car ID with an embedded License Plate Recognition application has the following features:
ZK-LPR Car ID allows real-time monitoring of alphanumeric license plates captured by the camera, issuing reports with plate recognition data.
Monitor and review LPR history data
The licences plate recognition history data can be stored for retrieval and review. Different filters can be enabled for this purpuse, such as: Date, time, country of origin.
Configure lists and linkage actions
The system allows to create an unlimited number of event lists and assign different actions like, for example, opening/closing barriers sending a signal via HTTP or simple integrations with 3rd party companies like Milestone or Lenel. All linkages can be activated by limited time periods and lists can be exported or imported from other devices.
LPR Camera Application Scenarios
ZKTeco’s vehicle access control solution suits small, medium and large sites and helps businesses reduce costs through automation. Hither are the standard application scenarios:
Stop & Go applications
Any LPR system application where a vehicle stops or practically comes to a complete stop like border posts, tolling system and free-flow uses or vehicle inspection installations. Corporate Premises and Residential Condominiums.
Access Control to Private Parking
ZK-LPR Car ID is used for the most effective residential parking enforcement. A safe parking situation can be achieved at corporate parking for employees and guests.
Access Control for Industrial Areas, Oil Industry premises & Gas Stations
Checking all incoming vehicles and simplifying regular visitors’ access to industrial areas like oil or chemical industry premises is a must which can be easily implemented using license plate data. It is an ideal solution to combat fuel drive-offs as well as grow a recurring business through identifying high-value customers such as truck and trade operators.
The automatic plate recognition system ZK-LPR Car ID can work using ZKTeco’s own vehicle access control software (ZKBioSecurity Parking Module) or integrated into third-party electronic security management platforms. It is a significant added value for comprehensive parking solutions or inventory management. Also, it can be integrated with all kinds of vertical market solutions, such as linking it to payment systems or loyalty programmes.
