Vehicle entry and exit

Control which vehicles access your parking lot — simply, securely and with precision

This easy, cost-effective standalone vehicle entry and exit system lets you control which vehicles can access your parking lot — simply, securely and with precision. A small, camera-based system, it automatically manages access by verifying license plates against lists of up to 1000 authorized and 1000 unauthorized vehicles. It is configured through a web interface, which further enables quick, easy installation. It’s ideal for small- to medium-sized sites with requirements on convenience, high throughput and minimal vehicle list updates.

How it works

The system automatically handles all vehicle entry decision steps, i.e.: vehicle image capture, vehicle list management, access decisions and barrier control. Here’s how:

  • A vehicle enters a detection zone

  • The camera captures an image of its license plate

  • The analytics application verifies the images against lists of authorized and unauthorized license plates stored in the camera

  • The camera sends its decision to the barrier via its internal I/O or external I/O

  • The barrier executes the open/close decision

Entry decisions are based solely on license plate verification. Event log options include up to 1 000 entries on camera storage or 100 000 entries on AXIS Surveillance Card Event and include thumbnail images of license plates for easy follow-up investigations. The system can send an email notification, record video to the Secure Digital card and stream video, e.g. when unauthorized vehicles are detected.

Vehicle entry and exit system topology

The system is available as separate components or as AXIS P1445-LE-3 License Plate Verifier Kit. In the AXIS P1445-LE-3 kit option, the camera comes delivered with settings already optimized for vehicle access application. The components are:

  • A purpose-built Axis network camera  with OptimizedIR, impact resistance and a wide temperature range for installation in any environment
  • Pre-installed AXIS License Plate Verifier analytics: the automatic number plate recognition application (ALPR)

There is built-in support for;


Add complementary products

Axis offers the following complementary products for managing visitors and as a back up for known vehicles:

  • Visitor management: install any Axis network door station to handle visitors and unknown license plates. These integrate intercom, camera and barrier control functionality.
  • Backup: install an Axis card reader (note: if you’ve added an Axis

Quick and easy deployment

Our vehicle access systems are powered over Ethernet, can also power connected equipment and can be installed at the edge. This minimizes the need for extra cabling and provides for quick and easy installation and deployment. Just connect a camera running AXIS License Plate Verifier to an IP network, enter a list of approved license plates via a web interface and connect the barrier. That’s all it takes. You can control the vehicle barrier in several ways: by connecting the camera’s I/O port to the barrier’s relay, by using an Axis I/O relay module or through an AXIS A1001.

Cost-effective solution

There is no cost for servers, bandwidth or external lighting for either vehicle access system. You also eliminate people-hours to man gates, thus freeing up resources for other tasks. And the AXIS P1445-LE-3 License Plate Verifier Kit costs significantly less than buying the software and camera separately.

More about the camera

It features HDTV 1080p at 50/60 fps and Axis Lightfinder, Axis Forensic WDR and Axis OptimizedIR for accurate number plate readings regardless of light conditions – day or night.
