  • Introduction

    AutoVu Pay-by-Plate Sync allows payment providers to integrate with Genetec Security Center and AutoVu Patroller seamlessly. As illustrated in the picture below, there are two ways to integrate with Pay-by-Plate Sync:

    • Develop a C# module that will be hosted by AutoVu's Pay-by-Plate Sync server. This module is responsible for communicating with the payment provider proprietary system and translate its data model into one that Security Center understands. This approach requires of the payment provider a knowledge of .NET development.
    • Develop an HTTP REST service that complies with the protocol defined in this document. This approach requires of the payment provider a knowledge of web service development.

      This section explains the latter option. It lists all methods a payment provider’s REST service is required to implement in order to communicate with AutoVu's Pay-by-Plate Sync.


    The following methods are required to be implemented in order to integrate with AutoVu Pay-by-Plate Sync.

    NEW! The following methods are called only during certification and access should be restricted by a development API key. During certification, Genetec will call these methods to populate test data. The payment provider's service implementation cannot be certified unless these methods are exposed. Once the implementation is complete, it can be tested automatically from the “Certification” section of this web site.


    In order to maintain functionality across different versions, each request must specify the expected API version. For the latest API version, all request should start with:



    Due to the private nature of the data sent to the REST Service, it is strongly recommended to use HTTPS when transmitting data. The REST service uses an API key authentication mechanism in order to protect the API against unauthorized access. The key can be composed of any string and needs to be sent with every request to the REST service. It is up to the implementer of the REST service to determine if a specific key gives access to certain methods only. If the API key is invalid, the HTTP response shall contain the error code 401 (Unauthorized).
