The HC121@TS8CR-Z is a license plate recognition camera, or an LPR. With its FullHD resolution and silky smooth 60fps video, this camera is designed from the ground up to take crystal-clear images of license plates. It can even record license plates at night with its 165 foot IR distance. With its intelligent letter and number recognition algorithm, this LPR automatically pulls all license plates into a database for quick and simple filtering, searching, reviewing, and exporting. In addition to license plates, the camera can also recognize and categorize vehicles into 10 body colors. Plus, with blacklist and whitelist functionality, you'll also know if someone's there who shouldn't be. When connected to a barrier, this camera also supports vehicle access control.

Toggle Digital Zoom

This professional-grade LPR is for anyone looking to take control over the flow of traffic in their parking lot or alleyway. It's compatible with the following UNV NVRs:

This camera not only takes pictures of license plates. It's also able to recognize the numbers and letters, convert the string to text, and store the license plates in a database for quick and easy searching and browsing.

2MP HD Resolution

The HC121@TS8CR-Z captures video up to a resolution of 2MP @ 60 FPS, which is 1920x1080 pixels. Every pixel added to your camera's picture gives you a higher image quality and more detail. So at 2MP, you're going to get a crisper, cleaner, and more detailed image.

4.7-47mm Motorized Varifocal Lens

The HC121@TS8CR-Z has a Motorized Varifocal Lens, ranging from . This means you can easily and quickly adjust the zoom to your liking directly from the camera’s interface.

IP67 Weatherproof Rating

This camera has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 67. This means the camera is completely protected from dust and other solid particles. It can also withstand being submerged in 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes.

Rest assured that when you install this camera outside, it will have no problem braving the toughest of storms.

IK10 Vandalproof Rating

The HC121@TS8CR-Z has an Impact Protection (IK) rating of 10, which is as high as the scale goes. If a vandal wants to try to bust open this camera, more power to them. Literally, they're going to need a lot more power, because this thing is indcredibly durable. That's why these dome-style cameras are often called vandal-proof domes, or vandal domes for short.

Up to 165ft Night Vision IR Range

When the sun goes down or the lights go out, this camera switches on its own onboard infrared LED lights. These lights, which are invisible to the human eye, allow the camera to continue functioning and recording video 24/7, day or night. And since its IR range covers up to 165ft, you're not going to miss anything that happens on your camera's feeds, even if it happens in pitch-black darkness.

Remote Access

The HC121@TS8CR-Z is a part of our Uniview line of products. As such, it's packed with features that would please a power user, yet it's simple enough to operate for a novice. Easily view and manage your cameras and recorders anywhere in the world with the free mobile and desktop applications. For the power user, these apps give you the power to adjust advanced settings on the fly. For the novice, you can use the apps to simply view live feeds and play back recorded video. Whatever you need to accomplish, it's all right there at your fingertips.

Plug & Play

If you're creating a new system out of our Uniview cameras, set up is insanely easy with our Uniview line of POE NVRs. Simply plug the camera into the back of the Uniview NVR and you have instant video on the recorder's HDMI interface. You can also view and manage the NVR through free desktop and mobile apps, such as EZView and EZStation.

ONVIF Compatibility

If you want to add this camera to a security system already set up, that’s no problem. This camera complies with the protocols set by the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF). This means, as long as your current recorder is ONVIF compatible, you’ll be able to set this camera up with your current system.

    The camera has specific requirements that have to be met in order for it to work properly and i stretched those requirements to its limit. I have the camera covering about a 30' wide "choke point" and that's well past the limit of the camera. we are getting right around 75-80% of plate reads with it outside the requirements. I have full faith that if we could narrow it down, we would have no problems getting the rest. The snapshots that it didn't read the plate, we are able to go back in the footage and stop the playback and see the plate every time. great camera with a great function. will buy again when requested. Also thanks to NELLYS for making the set up videos easy to follow. make things so much better.

    We have done a few projects with these LPR cameras and they are very good at what they do. If you locate it properly it will be successful at capturing a plate day or night. Our clients have been very pleased with the performance and ease of use. Make certain that you pair it with a UNV NVR that has the LPR features. These cams are fairly large and come with a junction box for mounting and securing your connections.

Will this camera work with my backstreet surveillance nvr? I checked and the nvr said it is ONVIF compliant, And how would I use the software for license plate recognition?? Considering backstreet has its own open network software. Lmk thanks
If the Backstreet Surveillance NVR supports ONVIF, then technically yes.
Just note the NVR will not be able to store plate captures itself. You would need to put a microSD card in the camera to store plates in it instead. Then to search plates, you'll have to log into the LPR's web interface via PC locally.
For best support, we advise going with an E2 or X series UNV NVR.
can you use a microsd card instead of a nvr to save the license plates information?
Yes, you can use a Microsd card to save plate information instead of an NVR.
