This preview is intended to provide an early glimpse of the ALPR product primarily for technical users. Manual installation steps are currently required using the Docker application and command line interface. Internal testing and optimization is still in progress, so you may encounter defects or stability issues. Please do let us know about these - but don't use this preview for production or other critical work!

ALPR should now be up and running!

Need help?

Fill out the preview form below to begin downloading the Sighthound ALPR Docker project. Once downloaded, extract the zip file’s contents to a folder on the device where you want ALPR to live.

If you don't already have it, download and install Docker on the device that will be running Sighthound ALPR.

Step 2. Setup Docker

Allocate RAM

Open a terminal or command line window

Open a terminal or command line window and “cd” into the “sighthound-alpr” folder created after extracting the zip file in step 1.

Step 3. Start the application

Once in the folder, enter the following command:

docker-compose up -d

Note: If this is the first time you are running the application, several gigabytes of data will be downloaded and may take several minutes to complete. Subsequent restarts and updates will be much quicker.

Start all services

Access ALPR

Open a web browser (Chrome or Firefox preferred) and navigate to http://localhost:9000
