Vehicle access control

Adds advanced, dynamic access control features to your lot

This vehicle access control system delivers advanced vehicle access control requirements where entry decisions can be based on factors such as: day-of-week, time-of-day, different credential types, etc. Searching its history of 30000 events — or updating its lists of authorized and unauthorized vehicles — is quick and easy. Our vehicle access control suits small, medium and large sites.

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 camera sends it image to the door controller
  • The door controller checks against its list of vehicles as well as any rules for entry
  • The door controller sends its decision to the barrier
  • The barrier executes the open/close decision

Entry decisions can be based on license plate verification together with factors such as: day-of-week, time-of-day, different credential types, etc. The system supports 30000 event log entries that include thumbnail images of license plates for easy follow-up investigations. It handles a maximum of 400 credentials, which can include license plates, access cards, PIN/keypads and mobile access cards. The system can send an email notification, record video to the Secure Digital card and stream video, e.g. when unauthorized vehicles are detected.

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.
