Get an easy-to-use and highly efficient automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) system as the core of your license plate-enabled parking (LEP) efforts.

AutoVu, the automatic license plate recognition system of Security Center, our unified security platform, automatically alerts operators to vehicles with unpaid fines, with expired time limits and without permits.

With AutoVu ALPR cameras mounted on parking enforcement vehicles, operators can optimize their routes and become more efficient at covering many types of parking zones throughout a city. This helps municipalities improve parking services for residents and businesses.

With each plate read, AutoVu's user-friendly in-vehicle software shows plate and vehicle images, time stamps, and more data for supported evidence in case of disputes. For our patented time-limited enforcement, wheel images for digital tire chalking are also provided.

And since AutoVu can easily integrate with third-party ticketing systems, pay stations and pay-by-phone applications, you can incorporate this advanced ALPR system as part of a comprehensive LEP ecosystem.

Realize Huge Productivity Gains with ALPR.


AutoVu is a comprehensive solution where sophisticated ALPR cameras work in tandem with in-vehicle and back-office software so you achieve significant gains in parking enforcement.

The Sharp and SharpX ALPR cameras are designed to provide the most accurate plate reads every shift, more plate reads in extreme conditions, at poor angles, and even at high speeds.

AutoVu Patroller is the intuitive in-vehicle control interface that provides easily accessible features to operators onboard, and allows them to monitor incoming reads from ALPR cameras.

Security Center is Genetec's unified security platform that provides real-time monitoring of AutoVu events, alarm management, as well as advanced data-mining and reporting capabilities.
