Configuring the Agent

Launch the application and enter your OpenALPR credentials.

From here, you will now be able to connect your camera stream.

  1. Toggle the cameras tab on the left if it is not already active.

  4. Click Add Camera.
  5. Enter the IP Address and Port Number you copied earlier and click OK.
