Affordable OpenALPR Cloud Stream Plans

Setup takes 15 minutes. No credit card required during trial period.

Free account - Install the OpenALPR Agent on a local PC/Server (Windows/Ubuntu/Docker) and configure your camera streams with the setup wizard. Data retention is limited to 2 days. If you require email alerts, enhanced search and longer data retention you can upgrade to a Basic (or Professional account if you have an Axis camera) at any time by entering your credit card information and those features will be unlocked.

Basic account - Similar to the Free account, the OpenALPR Agent is installed on a local PC. Plates are detected and recognized from any IP camera on your network. Plate metadata is uploaded to the OpenALPR Cloud Stream portal and stored for 30 days. In addition, you may define email alerts, add up to 5 users and conduct enhanced searches.

Professional account - OpenALPR Agent is installed directly on an Axis camera and motion-triggered video clips are uploaded to the Cloud Stream portal. No server or VMS software is required, just an Axis camera and an Internet connection. All video clips and plate metadata are stored in the cloud for 60 days where they can be viewed, searched and played back via your browser.

Frequently Asked Questions

We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your license plate data and personal data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We do not store your credit card information. Rather, we partner with a certified PCI Service Provider Level 1 merchant gateway. This is the most stringent level of credit card security certification available.

License plate data is similarly encrypted with SSL when sent to OpenALPR. The license plate images are persisted on your OpenALPR Agent systems. These images can be served within your network and do not need to be transferred over the internet to be displayed. The license plate data is stored on password-protected database systems that are kept isolated in a private network.

We also require you to enter a password to access your account information. Please do not disclose your account password to unauthorized people. Despite these measures, you should know that OpenALPR cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with license plate data and personal data and mistakes and security breaches may happen. If you have any questions or concerns about security, please contact us.

Every new account is automatically setup with a two week trial. If you love OpenALPR Cloud Stream after your initial free trial period (which we know you will), just enter your credit card into the system and select either the "Basic" or "Professional" account plan. Billing will begin automatically. You may also prepay for an annual subscription by invoice if you prefer. Contact us to make those arrangements.

After two-weeks, if you do not choose a paid plan, your account will revert automatically to a "Free" account. You do not need to enter a credit card and you will not be billed. If you choose to delete your account you may do so at any time. Please let us know what we could have done better if you decide to hit the road.

OpenALPR supports countries all over the world with characters in many different languages. If your country is not specifically supported, it may work well with another country that has a similar plate design.

OpenALPR works with any IP camera that supports H.264 and MJPEG streams. You don't need to buy a specialized "LPR" camera. However, if you want to read license plates at night, you will need a camera that can "see" in the dark using infrared (IR) light. Consult your camera manufacturer for the streaming URL (e.g. http://username:password@IP Address/axis-cgi/mjpg/video.cgi). You will need to know this information to configure the OpenALPR Agent.

You will receive an email. Click on the link to verfy your email and activate your account. Login to the OpenALPR Cloud Stream portal and click on "Getting Started" which will walk you through the process of downloading and configuring the OpenALPR Agent.

For "Free" accounts, the answer to your question may be found on the developer forum. "Basic" and "Professional" account users can contact us directly with your questions.
