PlateSmart incorporates the most reliable ALPR technology on the market today and is designed to work with practically any security camera in existence. But we also test as many different camera makes and models as we can to ensure that you get the best possible performance from your PlateSmart software.
Although we test many different specifications, PlateSmart’s main requirements to get optimum results from any camera are:
- Up to 2 megapixels resolution
- MJPEG and/or H.264 encoding
- Minimum shutter speed of 1/1000 sec.
- Gain limit control
- Telephoto varifocal lens
Below is a list of cameras that we have thoroughly tested with our system to give you the best possible results with PlateSmart products. This list will be expanded periodically, as we test more cameras.
Don’t hesitate to contact us for more information and recommendations on these and other cameras.

Since PlateSmart’s announcement of “software only” Vehicle Recognition technology in 2012, we have witnessed exponential adoption from the physical security marketplace in terms of utilizing conventional cameras for LPR. To extend the momentum from this success, we encourage all camera manufacturers to contact us for a feasibility study of your camera for LPR use with PlateSmart’s software.
Our camera evaluation team will run your camera through multiple check points for day/night operation with varying travel speeds. Once your camera passes our LPR study, we will provide a summary report with study results for you to share with your organization and end users. If your camera passes our study, we will also publish your camera specifications to our web site under our Resources tab in the approved camera listing section.
If you would like to learn more about the camera feasibility study, please email email@example.com
