License Plate Recognition

Manage campus traffic with License Plate Recognition

License Plate Recognition (LPR) has been the domain of public transportation for over 20 years. Now, implementing license plate recognition for even a small campus or a parking lot is very easy and pretty inexpensive.

Video Cameras these days have a great deal of processing power, storage and are almost always networked, so adding LPR and focusing and pointing that camera in the parking lot to a more advantageous spot is easy.


So, what is being done today, with license plate recognition on campuses?


Well, we would characterize the current use of license plate recognition as initially capturing and logging a license plate number.

Today, most of the time it’s just dropped in a log. Often times the LPR solution can recognize the make model and color of the vehicle.

Here is the basic application:

A 2018 Blue Toyota Camry with the license plate: “STEALME” was stolen from the parking lot!

When was it stolen?

Let me check the License Plate Recognition log:

“A 2018 Blue Toyota Camry with the license plate: “STEALME” was spotted by Camera 3 which is at the westgate at 4:03 AM on Monday April 1, 2021

License Plate Recognition is also used today for traffic counts, and as a means of allowing access via a gate mechanism.

What if you had IDentifyED, How would you be able to use License Plate Recognition?

IDentifyED’s License Plate Recognition is AI Driven, so it’s active monitoring and active response! So much more than just dumping an LPR read into a simple log!

We are NOT a License Plate Recognition Technology provider or a camera manufacturer!

We just are not.

You can use almost any License Plate Recognition system or LPR Camera with our system.

We provide a simple API/message handler to receive the LPR reads from the system or camera.

We make your LPR/License Plate Recognition System smarter, safer, better and more useful.

License Plate Recognition needs to trigger automated response.

Why don’t LPR systems have automated incident response?

5 Reasons

  1. They are mostly built for public transportation or camera-based solutions.
  2. They are not complete campus solutions.
  3. They don’t have an incident response system.
  4. They don’t have user or vehicle ownership information.
  5. Since they have little to no data and processes, an automated trigger is not happening.

One thing we are focused in on, is helping you create a common incident response and incident management (the documentation part) platform, so even if an LPR system has an incident response system…

How may incident response systems can you respond to?

We looked at License Plate Recognition not as a technology but asked the simple question:

“How would a campus use this technology and why?”

Once we had that we knew what we needed to build, and this is what we built:

  • User and Visitor profiles allow users add a vehicle, License Plate, Make, Model and Color.
  • Our system creates a vehicle registration system.
  • Users and vehicles can be flagged for response, like unwelcome visitors, etc.
  • Our Incident Response system provides not only vehicle, user information and location as well as the issue the responder needs to respond to, Automatically!
  • We provide a parking solution that can leverage the LPR system.
  • Our marketplace allows campuses to collect fees for parking, auto registration and fines.
  • Officers and parking enforcement can document accidents with LPR on the system.
  • Officers and parking enforcement can create fines with LPR on the system.
  • LPR Triggers can be set for time of day triggered alerts.
  • Our Carline System can work with an LPR System to create car-line dismissal for Schools and create car-line dismissal if a reunification is necessary.

Ok, great, I love it! How do I convince my boss?

1Happy Campus Members:Users will love it and can register vehicles and change vehicles on-line, in seconds, no more waiting in line.

2On-Line Process: You can even get rid of those stickers if you like, everything is simple an on-line.

3Focus staff on Safety/Security not being a cashier: All the staff and process that you needed to manually register ever vehicle in campus has now been automated. Now your staff can focus on more important tasks like protecting the campus.

4Increased Revenue Parking Fees, Vehicle Registrations and all fines are collected on-line with automated invoicing and user credit card processing that does not cost the campus a penny.

5Better Security. What would it mean to automate your response to flagged user and flagged vehicles? How much better and quicker would your security be?

624 Hour Monitoring. With time of day triggers and an LPR system on exit and egress we can tell you all hours of the day if you have an issue. What is happening with those 2 cars in the parking lot at 4 AM? Why is a big truck leaving the parking lot at 2 AM? Why is Sally leaving school at 11:45AM?

7Know who is on your campus. Our LPR check-in/check-out function tells you who is on the campus with their vehicle and who has left the campus. Think about it… You don’t know that right now.

8Improved Incident Response, Incident Documentation, Accident Documentation, and Fine Documentation. Your team has new tools to do their job better, that’ll make the boss look better!

Leveraging IDentifyEd’s Complete License Plate Recognition Integration.

IDentifyED Campus Management API Library

IDentifyEd has a large library of APIs so that 3rd parties with the proper credentials can interact with IDentifyED.  The Auto/Vehicle Management System APIs allow data interaction with 3rd party data sources and applications, the ability to query user-vehicle information and other data points in order to provide a smarter and safer campus.

IDentifyED’s Visitor Management the next evolution in campus security.

Visitor Management is not a new concept, as a matter of fact it may be one of the very first processes that were established 1000s of years ago.

However, the ability to manage and monitor a visitor with a paperless system as they make a visit, the ability to verify whether a visitor has any issues with their criminal record in a way that does not expose the visitor or the enterprise with privacy risks is new.

These significant changes are the difference between allowing a visitor to make a monitored and managed visits with visitor validation on to your campus and allowing a sex offender free range to your students.

Integration from your campus Human Resource Management System or in Education your Student Information System.

Integration is the best news yet!

What is holding you back from License Plate Recognition Integration at your campus? What excuses will work?

  • You have LPR Camera already but they just create a log that almost never gets checked.
  • You have too many issues managing all the mundane vehicle paperwork to see that all of this basically goes away with IDentifyED
  • The campus members love to wait in line to register their vehicle they see it as a great way to meet people.
  • You don’t want to know who is driving a vehicle on campus, ignorance is bliss.
  • If someone should not be on campus, you should learn the good old fashion way with a scream or panic.
  • No one cares what is going on in your parking lots all hours of the day and night.
