Verified PurchaseI had them up about a two weeks and caught our first dirt bag. There was a problem in the neighborhood. About three neighbors had a fuzzy picture of a dark truck but, nothing else. A neighbor called about a problem. She knew we had cameras. When I explained what I had and gave her the plate number with a picture she started crying. We turned it into the police. They were able to identify who it was and take care of it. Needless to say we will not have anymore problem from that person. The piece of mind is worth it.
I did ALOT of research. I found some that met my criteria but, it seemed to come back to Nelly Security and these cameras. I called Nelly and spoke to a salesman about a couple of questions. A week later I made the purchase. These Cameras rock! I had some trouble navigating the NVR a little. I called and Seth, he remoted into my computer and showed me everything. Certain things I needed to go over a couple times. He was patient. I took some notes. A couple of things everyone needs to know about License Plate Recognition cameras (LPR) As many tutorials said that LPR camera are VERY specific. I was able to capture plates about a hundred ft or so but, only about 60% of the time. I repositioned my focal point closer and ZOOMED in a little. This made a dramatic difference. About 90%+. It essentially made the plate bigger in the image. Making more of the plate visible in the viewing area. IE. making it much easier for the camera to see it. These cameras are fast. I have them set up at my mailbox. Up and down the street. The cars are hitting at least 40mph and these cameras are hitting it. From what I read, they only need about a 1/4 second or so.
Reason for purchase:
I bought them because of 60fps. This gives you a much smoother video capture. When you stop the recorded video it is clear.
The traffic box lines. This allows you to define the area that the car with pass through.
The Infra Red (IR). projects out FAR and pops the reflective plate. There are many that I can even see the month that the plate expires!
Cut light, this dims the headlight/taillights so not to blind the camera all the while it pushes the IR at the plate.
The LPR software is included in the NVR. It will take an eight sec video clip, a date time stamp, picture, and provide a display computer font display typed out of what it seen.
Things to consider, you must put a camera that monitors the same general area as the LPR so you can see what is going on. Example, at night when you are looking at the camera on the monitor it is a black screen as the cut light is on. Only when a car passes by can you see dim headlights and nothing else.
Verified PurchaseThis is my 4th camera purchase trying to get license plate reads at night. Wish I would have started with this and saved money. I thought 4K was more important than frame rate but was wrong. Given the 32X optical zoom, there is plenty of resolution. The main difference with this camera is how much customization you can do with the video parameters. With about an hour of tweaking, I am now getting reliable captures both day and night. I am running this with a Synology NAS and use Chrome with an IE plugin that you can download from Google. Couldn’t be happier.
Verified PurchaseNelly's team goes above and beyond to help get you setup. They impressed me when I called in with an obstacle during setup, and one of their team members talked me through it from memory. We got my LPR up and running with my Mac. A day later I reviewed night-time captures and needed to make some adjustments to the night mode. Nelly's blog about the camera and videos made that super easy. I drove my vehicle in front of the camera a few times, tested some adjustments, and within an hour I'm getting excellent night license plate captures. When I first bought the camera I wasn't sure it was going to work with my Mac. With some exceptional support, and a work-around I have all the features I'm looking for from this camera at a great price compared to other LPRs.
Tip: I don't own a PC. Just a Mac. And the web-plugin for safari isn't compatible with the latest version of Safari. That's actually not a problem. I didn't need to install the web-plugin or any alternate browsers. I installed Guarding Vision from Nelly's Downloads section, and used that to set the camera's IP address. After doing that I could access the camera from Safari. Between Safari and Guarding Vision I can access all the essential LPR features except Blacklist & Whitelist on my Mac. Nelly's support team talked me through the first part. Thanks guys!
Verified PurchaseThis is a great all around camera that is giving my clients a peace of mind knowing that license plates are being captured coming on and off of their lot.
It captures plates really well and the installation was a breeze.
