How Flock Safety's 
ALPR Camera System Works

The only ALPR crime-solving camera system with privacy protection measures built in


Our Product

Flock Safety’s ALPR system securely captures images while the proprietary machine learning algorithm identifies a vehicle fingerprint including license plate, vehicle type, and vehicle color.

Read vehicle license plates up to 55 MPH, day & night, up to 75 ft. away.

Access your private footage quickly and easily on the cloud via desktop or mobile.

Work with the only crime-solving camera system with privacy protection measures built in.

Flock Cameras Capture Vehicle Images

Over 70% of crime occurs with a vehicle, so Flock Safety is able to capture vehicles traveling up to 55 MPH and up to 75 ft away--day and night.

Cameras are often installed at neighborhood entrances to capture images of all incoming vehicles. As they pass by the camera, it captures multiple still images of each automobile. These images do not stay on the local device for long at all.

Image Uploaded to Secure Cloud Server

Once images are captured, the camera almost immediately uploads them into our securely encrypted cloud server. This means that even if an individual device is tampered with or vandalized, there will be no footage on the actual camera.


Do you want a stolen vehicle driving through your neighborhood?

Neither do we. 

Flock Safety's Hotlist integration can help police know if a stolen vehicle passed by the camera.

Machine Learning System Creates “Vehicle Fingerprint”

Once in the secure cloud, Flock Safety’s proprietary machine learning process analyzes each image, creating what we call a “Vehicle Fingerprint™”. This fingerprint groups all images of a single vehicle together as one, identifies the vehicle type and color, and reads and stores the license plate number.

Admin Portal Provides Easy Access to Footage

The vehicle fingerprint information is uploaded to Flock Safety’s Admin portal. Each neighborhood decides who has access to their Admin Portal--an HOA board member, a security committee, etc. The Admin Portal makes it easy to search vehicle attributes in the case of a crime. If a neighbor knows the day and estimated time of the event, he or she can then search by license plate number, vehicle type or color, and more.


Simple & Affordable Pricing

We recommend installing two cameras at each entrance & additional cameras at major intersections.

Not sure how many cameras you need? We are always happy to develop a custom security plan based on your unique layout, number of homes, and budget.

Footage Used to Help Police Solve Crime

If a crime occurs, users can give police access to their footage to help pinpoint the exact vehicle involved. While doorbell cameras and video security footage can give homeowners a timeframe for when a crime happened, police need explicit, undeniable evidence to improve what they call “solvability.” Flock Safety helps police and homeowners with crime at least 1-2 times a day.


The Most Advanced Security For Neighborhoods

Modern software to solve crime & protect your community.


Video vs. Still Image

Don't waste time combing through hours of footage with a traditional video camera. Flock Safety leverages advanced machine vision to turn footage into high quality still frames to quickly get to the moment of the crime and pass that over to the police.

Cloud vs. DVR

We store our images in the cloud rather than on the device itself so that it’s fast and easy to access footage when you need it. This also allows us to continue to improve the software and deploy enhancements out to our cameras in real-time.

Machine Vision

Flock has developed sophisticated machine vision algorithms to reduce hours of footage across multiple cameras into a single simple to use interface that focuses on what you are looking for and not just the time of day.
