I have a client who manages an HOA and is interested in upgrading their analog system. They are currently using an Exacq DVR and have LPR cameras covering the entrances/exits of the community. They would like to stick with Exacq since they are now familiar with the software. However, their current system is only LPR and not ANPR and would like to implement an ANPR system with a searchable database with whitelist & blacklist capabilities. My first thought was to just set them up with openalpr, but after seeing they've doubled their pricing and cut monthly recognitions in half, I'd like to use something else.
Does anybody have experience with Exacq NVRs/VMS and ANPR? Would you recommend a different system/VMS? The HOA board members will be the end users, so it needs to be very easy to use and intuitive. I've used Hikvision ANPR cameras but this requires use of their iVMS software or being at the physical NVR to search plates, which won't work in this situation. My initial thought of using openalpr was due to their extremely easy to use web interface that pretty much any average person could use with ease.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
