CCTV cameras are a fantastic way to protect your premises. They are a very popular choice of security system because they are extremely versatile - they can be used to monitor internal and external spaces, private property boundaries, car parks, walkways, school entrances, factories, offices, and many other locations.
CCTV cameras can also be incorporated into road tolling, car park billing and traffic monitoring systems. If you're particularly interested in monitoring traffic and capturing car number plates, you may be wondering if CCTV cameras are capable of doing this.
What kind of CCTV cameras can capture number plates?
Although there are a wide range of different CCTV systems on the market, not every CCTV camera has the ability to capture car number plates so that they are clearly visible in security footage. If you're looking for CCTV camera that can recognise car number plates, you'll need a specialised ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) camera.
IDS Security offers a wide range of different security camera options, including ANPR CCTV cameras.

What is an ANPR camera?
An ANPR camera is a high-functioning piece of equipment with incredible capabilities. In the past, ANPR cameras were relatively limited, unable to read accurately in low light situations, making errors regularly, and requiring human confirmation.
Today, ANPR cameras are specially engineered with deep learning algorithms and GPU processors, making them extremely accurate. They are now more than capable of capturing accurate number plates from a variety of different angles, even in low light.
If you're interested in installing an ANPR CCTV system, IDS Security can help. We offer a range of quality CCTV cameras, installation by highly-trained security engineers, and a 24-hour callout monitoring and engineering service for our maintained customer.
