ARES Appliance

PlateSmart-Certified ALPR Processing Hardware

ARES by PlateSmart is the industry’s leading software-only ALPR and video analytics solution, which means that it doesn’t need dedicated processing hardware to run, unlike competing products. But your server bandwidth is valuable, and it might just be that you don’t have any to spare for the sophisticated processing ALPR requires. We understand. That’s why we have created the ARES Appliance, a compact and powerful edge processor designed to relieve your servers of the need to manage video feeds, extract images, and perform ALPR processing on them. With an ARES Appliance installed at each of your cameras’ locations, you have more available bandwidth on your servers for all the important functions they perform. The ARES appliance communicates directly with your ARES software, wherever it is hosted, efficiently providing you with the real-time ALPR and analytics data you expect from PlateSmart. What’s more, the ARES Appliance helps to protect your cameras against outside hacking.
