License plate camera support

Post by Cougar281 » Thu Mar 18, 2021 11:03 pm

I know BI now supports the ability to upload images to a third party for license plate processing/recognition, but is there any possibility of BI adding support to work with cameras that natively support license plate recognition, such as Dahua's ITC237-PW6M-IRLZF? The camera captures data like in the below image taken from the cameras Web UI, and that info gets uploaded to Dahua's DSS software if configured, so it has the ability to transmit this information, and it must have some onboard storage as it saves at least a few entries on the camera. It would be really great if BI could work in an integration to work with cameras like this to make use of their recognition and processing ability, which IMO, is quite good, rather than relying on sending to third parties for processing and returning that info.
