License plate capture cameras, also known as license plate recognition / LPR / ANPR cameras, are a specialized CCTV camera that have built in software to help identify and record license plates on still or moving vehicles.
Intelligent traffic modes built into LPR /ANPR cameras allows them to compensate for speed, weather, and headlight issues to capture a usable video that identifies license plates and trigger a series of events i.e. Open Gates, Switch On Lights, Disable Alarms, Send Notification etc..
