ANPR: Automatic number plate recognition

Smart cameras for seamless and secure access to your parking lot

What is ANPR?

Automatic number plate recognition, otherwise known as ‘licence plate recognition’, is technology that uses optical character recognition to read vehicle registration plates.

You can use Parkable’s ANPR to grant secure, seamless entry and exit through access control gates, and record which vehicles are in your parking lot.

Why implement licence plate recognition?

Seamless access

Open access control simply by driving to the entrance. With no swipe cards needed, you have low-touch, easy access, removing congestion at the entry

Heightened security

Limit parking lot access to an approved list of vehicles. Cameras record each vehicle so you know who has accessed your parking lot and for how long

Automated reporting

ANPR cameras track which vehicles are in the parking lot, giving you automated, real-time information and reporting through the Parkable admin panel

Flexible to suit your car park


Integrate with cameras and access control

Parkable's ANPR software supports any industry-standard access control gates and barriers, and integrates with RTSP-compatible IP cameras. Installation takes 15 minutes and can be undergone by Parkable’s team or an electrician.

You can integrate Parkable with pre-existing hardware, or contact us and we'll help you find the best option for your parking space.


Charge for casual and long-term parking

If you offer paid parking, the Parkable app processes credit card payments while licence plate recognition ensures that parkers are appropriately charged for time spent in the parking lot/garage. There are flexible access and payment options for both your staff and tenants, and for members of the public.

  • Offer long-term paid parking subscriptions to staff, tenants or the public through the Parkable app
  • Ensure that those parking on a daily or hourly basis can only access the parking space if they’ve started a paid parking session on the app

Fleet vehicle management

Use ANPR to simplify parking access for your fleet and gain oversight of which vehicles are available or offsite at any given time.

  • No more need for swipe cards to access the parking space
  • Connect access control to the fleet vehicle - rather than the driver
  • Use the Parkable web panel to see which fleet vehicles are available at any given time

Manage private parking

Parkable provides everything else you need to manage company-wide private parking, and improve the efficiency and optimization of your entire parking space.

  • Share allocated parking spots between staff
  • Create better parking experiences
