License Plate Recognition

Important for security

Due to the rapidly growing vehicles, automated parking systems with video surveillance is significantly important for security and efficiency consideration. As license plate is the unique ID for each vehicle, it’s important to recognize it in some parking-related scenarios like public garage, gas station, hotel, supermarket, and so on. In this way, all the vehicles are recognized and protected without any change inside the vehicles.

The Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) System can be used to recognize the license plate of vehicles and capture the images. The captured license plate images and video can be stored or uploaded to NVR/Server for further analysis and query.

Comparing with other ANPR system, the Hikvision ANPR system has the following advantages:

  • Embedded ANPR algorithm designed in the cameras;
  • Accurate capture and accurate recognition;
  • Bullet camera is with build-in infrared light, adaptive to even low light environment;
  • Simple construction for easy installation in public areas;
  • Easy to operate;
  • Convenient system expansion and renovation via network configuration and new cameras adding.


  • Based on a deep-learning algorithm
  • ANPR, 2MP, 1080P@25fps, 0.002lux Ultra-low Starlight 
  • Video & I/O trigger
  • Local database s stores up to 100 thousand license items of blacklist and whitelist (TF card)
  • Voice announcement and text output
  • Relay output for barrier gate control
  • Online & offline working mode
  • White light ( DS-TCG227-A), Infrared light(DS-TCG227-AIR)
  • Motorized zoom lens (3.1mm-9mm)
  • IP67
  • Open SDK & ISAPI for 3rd VMS Integration
