Reg-Sentry is Bosch Security Systems' first Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)-based, automated vehicle access control solution. Designed to be installation friendly, Reg-Sentry can be used as either a stand-alone solution or can be quickly and easily integrated with existing access control equipment. Reg-Sentry allows the user to easily configure the system from a linked PC to permit or bar entry to any vehicle attempting to enter a secure site.
Users upload number plate data using the PC-based Sentry-Viewer commissioning software, creating their own custom Black / White list. The camera captures the number plate of any vehicle approaching an access control point and sends data to the Reg-Sentry control box which processes the information, compares it to the list and sends a signal to the access barrier to open or remain closed.
The package comprises a Reg-Sentry control box with embedded processing engine, a choice of field-proven number plate capture cameras to accommodate a range of required capture distances, and the easy-to-use Sentry-Viewer commissioning software. Together these functions deliver a flexible, user-friendly solution for a wide range of access control applications.
The Reg-Sentry Black / White list can contain up to 10,000 license numbers and will be supplied with a full European number plate recognition library.
Reg-Sentry can be attached to any gate or access control barrier. Potential applications include car parks, gated communities, factories, offices, schools and colleges.
