FAQ For M4U Smart LPR

What is LPR?

License Plate Recognition (LPR) is a technology to recognize vehicles number plates and manage entry & exit automatically without using the access card, ticket, identification card (IC) or driving license if you are a visitor to the guarded & gated community.

How does LPR work?

When a vehicle approaches the barrier gate, the LPR supported camera will capture/scan the vehicle license plate number. LPR System recognizes data from the license plate and compares the images captured with the data of authorized vehicles. Once the data is matched, the barrier gate will rise to let the car goes through. The LPR System saves information together with a picture of a car plate, the date & time.

What is LPR camera?

LPR camera also known as license plate capture camera, is a specialized type of video surveillance camera embedded with LPR Software, designed to capture numbers and letters of license plates on still or moving vehicles. Besides, it has built-in infrared illuminator that enhances images captured, especially during night time operation.

Why do we need Smart LPR System?

With the implementation of the Smart LPR system, we can prevent the entrance of unauthorized vehicles into our residential area. This system is able to organize automatically opening of the rising barrier gate at the entrance and exit to and from the residential area.

Thus, we can ensure the safety of our residents, reduce staff costs and eliminate the tedious process of manually recording number plates. Secondly the LPR data can be easily searched by entering either a number plate or registered visitor’s name. Alternatively, we can search according to date and time for vehicles entering or leaving with the associated overview images from the LPR camera.

Does the system work at night without additional lighting?

Yes. Our system uses M4U Smart LPR camera with 30M infrared illuminators to highlight the number plate in the dark, thus ensuring its recognition.

Does the system recognize the number at night with car lights turned on, or very sunny day?

Yes. The M4U Smart LPR camera we used in our system supports wide dynamic range pro (WDR Pro) to handle the extreme lighting. This feature adjusts the image so that the number is perfectly readable.

In which operating systems can work in your system?

Microsoft Windows 10 pro (64-bit).

If my car plate number cannot be read by the Smart LPR System because of its font, what is the alternative way?

You can still use your existing access card or your mobile phone with M4U Home App to gain access to your residential or condominium.

What if I get a new vehicle or a new license plate?

It is essential that your license plate number(s) and vehicle information is current and remains up to date. Please update your information immediately after a change at the management office to avoid any inconvenience.

How will my license plate information be used?

The license plate information collected in this process will only be referenced against the residence database for the purposes of verifying the entry and exit permission.
