SmartCAM ANPR camera

The smartest one amongst ANPR cameras


We have a newer version of this product. You may want to explore our latest traffic monitoring camera: the VIDAR ➝

What differentiates SmartCAM from other ANPR cameras is how it connects all ANPR-related functions that are often missing in traffic cameras or have to be sourced by different vendors. Unlike those, this traffic monitoring camera offers an all-in-one solution for 3 functions: triggering, imaging and ANPR all these in perfect collaboration, so system integrators get a complete ANPR solution that lets them build traffic systems in a straightforward way.

SmartCAM runs an integrated AI feature for detecting all approaching vehicles: as a result, there is no need for external triggers and the system has no missed events. The soul of this traffic camera is the Carmen recognition engine, the industry-praised ANPR solution that is now part of the device. Its smartness appears in the dual lens system as well, a clever imaging feature for enhancing ANPR results and providing a secondary overview footage too.

Highlighted features


No.1. ANPR

SmartCAM runs the Carmen ANPR software that is currently the most reliable and accurate solution on the market.


Plate coverage

As 4 separate ANPR engines run parallelly, the camera makes sure the appropriate one is activated for recognition.

Vehicle Detection

Vehicle Detection

An AI-based feature VehDet guarantees no missed events and lets you forget about the need for external triggers


Works in all weather

The IK10 and IP67 rated camera house ensures flawless functioning in any corner of the world.


Dual lens construction

While the primary optic module gets images for ANPR, the secondary lens acts as an overview camera in selected models.


Night vision

Each vehicle stays visible even in the darkest hours thanks to the powerful illumination and synchronized flash.

SmartCAM makes sure ANPR

Why bother with fine-tuning a number of components – while there is already a traffic camera that has it all, integrated?

anpr camera with automatic triggering


Selecting and connecting external trigger technologies takes time and easily gets complicated. The unique Vehicle Detection feature brings relief and eliminates all worries about triggering.

anpr camera with perfect imaging


SmartCAM produces such images, with such illuminations that are appropriate – and most optimal – for number plate recognition purposes, smartly avoiding overexposed, blurry or low contrast inputs.


4 separate license plate recognition engines run parallelly, all with the well-known accuracy of Carmen, in order to maximize ANPR speed and the reliability of recognition.

Smart on the inside

This ANPR camera connects uncompromised imaging, IR illumination, network communication capability, integrated data processing and (optional) Doppler speed radar in a single IP67 rated unit. The device automatically performs time synchronization (NTP) and image capturing in 30 FPS in any weather and light condition. Its built-in motion detection with extensive masking option, ONVIF compatibility, JPEG image / MJPEG stream output and internal buffer, synchronized IR (or optional white) LED illumination provide ideal image capturing and control.
