Installing ACPR numberplate recognition for ATRIUM

Installing and setting up numberplate recognition for ATRIUM access control

1. Introduction

The ACPR tool was developed to add number plates to users in the ATRIUM KRYPTO software. 

You can easily programme a user with a certain access level together with their number plate, so ATRIUM immediately recognises them and can open the gate when someone arrives in front of the ANPR camera.

The ACPR tool connects to your ATRIUM KRYPTO system to display all users and access levels already programmed in advance, making profile management easier and reducing human error.

2. Log into the ATRIUM Web Server

Only a user with 'Installer' rights can activate a licence.

1. Once logged in, click at the top right of the browser window on your user icon and select 'Switch to Expert Mode'.
