XProtect® LPR

License plate recognition

Recognize the power of automatic vehicle identification.

XProtect® LPR is license plate recognition software that reads license plate information from vehicles and links the license plate information with video. As a fully integrated part of the XProtect® Smart Client, XProtect LPR has a wide set of application areas, including access control, theft prevention, loyalty programs, toll road and border control. Advanced matching logic makes it possible to compare recognized number plates with pre-defined lists and initiate automated actions, such as opening a gate, thus increasing work productivity.

XProtect LPR is an XProtect add-on product that is seamlessly supported by most XProtect video management software products and Milestone Husky™ NVR units. It has optimized recognition algorithms for more than 100 countries and states around the world.

XProtect LPR key benefits

XProtect LPR offers a number of powerful applications for security-conscious environments:

Prevent losses
Are customers driving away without paying for fuel?

XProtect LPR is an ideal solution for gasoline chains. Using negative lists and third-party integrations, the system can automatically close a gasoline pump if a blacklisted vehicle license plate is recognized at any station in the chain.

Manage parking 
Is this car covered by a parking subscription?

XProtect LPR can help you reduce the costs and time associated with managing parking subscriptions. Instead of issuing toll collection devices or radio frequency identification (RFID) tags to authorized personnel, XProtect LPR can automatically open a parking lot gate when a permitted license plate is identified.

Regulate access
Should this vehicle be granted access?

Use XProtect LPR to optimize your processes by automatically controlling access to protected areas and premises. The software’s flexible, user-defined match lists make it easy to add license plates belonging to visitors, temporary personnel and delivery vehicles. Once the pre-defined license plates are identified, vehicles are automatically granted access.

Gather evidence
Where was the car in question?

XProtect LPR can be a powerful tool for law enforcement agencies needing to track the movements of a suspicious vehicle. Each time a vehicle passes by a camera equipped with XProtect LPR, it is registered in the system. Using XProtect LPR’s reporting functionality, law enforcement officials can create a report showing all of the movements of a particular vehicle within a specified timeframe. The report includes a video thumbnail of the recognized vehicle, a close-up of the license plate and details about the detection time.


XProtect LPR supported license plates

XProtect LPR supports over 100 countries, states and regions around the world and new countries are added continuously. Furthermore, XProtect LPR supports a large variety of license plate layouts: Single-line, Double-line, Black on White, White on Black, Multicolored etc.
