Dash-mounted cameras are gaining more and more popularity as drivers realize the benefits. Whether it’s about safety or insurance, dash-mounted cameras make a valuable contribution to both beginner and experienced drivers. With an expert dash camera installation, driving activity is recorded in real time, and high-tech features provide benefits on city streets and highways.
A dash camera installation will pay for itself after the first mishap – whether it’s a simple fender bender or a serious hit-and-run accident. Dash-mounted cameras provide valuable evidence for police and insurance companies. Better still, there’s little chance of “insurance fraud” in the event that something happens in the local parking lot or even while driving long distance on highways.
Safety and security with a dash camera installation
Even for safe and responsible drivers, a dash camera installation can provide added safety and security. Overall, drivers make technical mistakes and driving errors every time they hit the road. And while no driver is impeccable on the road, dash cameras can be valuable when it comes to the “other guy”. Bottom line, a good dash camera will offer driver safety, security and confidence.
Dual-camera system - record fluid videos front and back
With a wide 139° view angle, this system (with BlackVue) provides video clarity even in low light. Critical details are captured when driving or while parked. Also available is the “Over the Cloud” service, allowing drivers to check on the car from anywhere.
Impact and motion detection (driving or parked vehicle)
While driving, BlackVue detects both impacts and sudden changes in driving speed. When the vehicle is parked, movements are also detected. Videos files can be easily found with the BlackVue Viewer (Windows/Mac OS or App for Android/iOS).
Sony STARVIS™ image sensors (front and rear cameras)
With Sony STARVIS™ image sensors, front and rear cameras deliver outstanding lower-light performance. With the Enhanced Night Vision feature, drivers have more brightness in darker environments, allowing for additional safety and security.
A dash camera installation provides real time footage
Dash-mounted cameras provide footage that is real-time, accurate, and reliable. While insurance companies don’t offer discounts for installed dash-cameras, the video footage is still valuable in accident scenarios. The truth is, dash-camera footage has proven to be more reliable than witness accounts. Big picture, dash cameras also provide accountability – including police officer actions, prevention of insurance fraud, and general reliability of testimonies (when this is required).
Dash cams also allow for monitoring while the vehicle is out of sight. BlackVue technology will monitor a parked vehicle, but will only record when motion or impact has been detected. Finally, video recordings can be backed up to a cell phone or “cloud” when this becomes necessary.
Additional benefits with dash-mounted cameras
• BlackVue App and Viewer (free download) allow for easy management of video files
• BlackVue technology allows for WI-FI connection and access files (also in real time)
• BlackVue design provides easy access to functions (ON/OFF by waving one’s hand)
• Built-in GPS technology is designed to add location and speed data to video records
• WI-FI compatibility lets drivers connect with BlackVue with smartphones or tablets
• BlackVue can also be accessed through “Over the Cloud” from home or mobile device
Most important with dash-mounted cameras is to have everything professionally installed. The systems are high-tech, and aftermarket installation requires both experience and expertise. This will ensure long-term performance for the system, and personal satisfaction going forward.
