Has anyone worked with the API on a LPR software?  I'm curious if we can set preferences and Welcome messages for plates pulled from our IP cam.

Known guest announcements..."The {insert name here}'s are arriving"

Unknown plates...activates drop down turret gatling gun from porch...etc...

Hikvision has cameras with LPR built in and modules for purchase. That might be a little more robust. I've played with it some. You need a good camera and a local with front plates. Hikvision has settings based on country so it can adjust to the shape and character recognition.

$70 hikvision cam, BI software, and OpenALPR free cloud api and it is storing a plate in a file that the api will give access too. I just don't know how to build on that. I want to pull the plate info into a database that has names tied to it...i can fill in who it is. Then have a programmed response from the name field

The agent can configure a webhook or you can event off something else and pull messages (plates) off the queue. Message is JSON with the plate and candidates.

I haven't looked too deep. Looks like some part of their software can do lookups. At least their UI mockups show names next to plates.

This could be an interesting one (Although I don't have a serious use case)........  As long as we could integrate with IFTTT we could use Alanchows driver to do things......

I was trying to have it load a spreadsheet with LP entries and I add the individuals name.  Anyone I don't know will be unknown, then create some code to announce "user name" is here pulling values from the spreadsheet.  This also would create a log file....If you wanted to go crazy have it poll results and if it's been X number of days since a LP has shown up in the log set announcement " It's been X days since "user" has been over, would you like to invite them for dinner?

LOL....could be some crazy stuff here, right?
