How To Use the ANPR Feature On An Amcrest EI NVR

The ANPR option allows the user to sync vehicle block and allow lists as well as view license plate data if a license plate reader camera is applied to the NVR. Please note, this option is only applicable to license plater reader cameras, all other models that do not support ANPR will not be compatible with this option.
This option is for license plate detail retention. The camera must be set up for ANPR first before applying it to the NVR for retention. For best results, please make sure the LPR camera is registered to channel 1 in the system. All other ANPR camera settings, such as LPR capture areas, will have to be modified in the license plate camera directly using a web user interface.
