ADI-GARDINER announced the distribution of Paxton's Net2 Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) reader as part of ADI-GARDINER's strategy to provide total security access control solutions to its customers. This first generation ANPR functions with an access control system in the same way as a standard door reader.
Paxton's Net2 is a networked access control system which uses a built-in infrared reader to record the number plates of approaching vehicles. Unlike other systems, an image recording device is not required as the system is linked to a pre-entered database of registered vehicle number plates. When the vehicle plate is read by the ANPR reader, the Net2 software checks the access permissions of that user and access is granted as appropriate with the access event logged by Net2 as it would be with any other token.
The ANPR reader is supplied with installation instructions including how to configure it with laptop PCs. Once installed, the user will be required to enter registered vehicle number plates in the system to ensure preferred vehicles are automatically allowed entry through a designated gate or barrier.
