What was once considered space age technology is now being used today on vehicles, kitchen appliances, cell phones and what not. The same happened with cars and other vehicles that derived a lot of the technology from airplanes like drive by wire technology, electronic aids and other aerodynamic features that were once a ‘secret’.

Well, they were definitely ahead of us! #jetsons

Likewise, another item present on all aircrafts called the ‘blackbox data recorder’- responsible for recording all communication and flight data that gave air crash investigators clues about air crashes, slowly evolved and found its place in cars and other 4 wheeled vehicles. Not the typical black box recorder that is untouchable and records communication only but another kind that not only records audio data but visual as well. You could call it the secret eye of the car in a way.

One brilliant device, much inspiration to take from

Also known as Dash cameras, these devices record every second of your journey until you’ve parked and switched off your vehicle. Still want it to record while your vehicle is switched off? It can do that too! Dash Cameras are known to record all driving footage in 1080P HD quality with a 140 degree wide angle view to ensure no detail is ignored. The footage is stored in micro SD memory cards but If you’re worried about backing up all the recorded footage, well then you actually don’t have to unless you require some part of the clips. The user can copy the clip he/she needs and the rest will be simply over written once the SD card inside the Dash camera is full.

Not only does a Dash Camera overwrite data so you don’t have to worry about managing unnecessary videos but it also senses motion. As a result, the user has the option of recording the video only when the vehicle is moving and the sensitivity of the G-sensor too can be adjusted, depending on his/her preference.

Plug, Play and forget about it. It is that simple!

But if you’re wondering how safe your recorded data would be then we’ve got that sorted too. If the Dash camera’s G-sensor detects a jerk/ impact, it will record that and for ten more minutes (time duration can be set) post the ‘event’ as a separate recording. The footage of the ‘event’ will be treated by the Dash Camera as important and will be stored on a separate location on the micro SD card. The smartest thing about a Dash Camera is that it will not overwrite the important footage of the ‘event’ along with the other videos when the memory is full.

A smart system with a smart backup plan.`

With all this gadgetry on the Dash Camera (some of which we haven’t yet spoken about), the user receives full confidence while driving, especially if he/she is not at fault under different circumstances. That explains to us why many of our clients have been experiencing lower accident and complaint rates from the vehicles being driven by hired drivers. That is another added advantage as someone driving the car is aware that his/ her driving is always under constant observation. Consequently, hired drivers are encouraged to adopt safe, risk-free and responsible driving practices.

Hired drivers know they’re being monitored which leads to an increased focus on the road.

When you speak of hired drivers, another thing the owners of the vehicle would want to know is the areas their vehicle has been to. That too is possible to track on our smart Dash Cameras that have GPS built into them. So not only can you see where your vehicle has been to via video footage but it is also possible to have a quick look on the map.

Wanna know where your car went today? Our Dash Cameras could tell you.

As more and more cars roll out onto the roads everyday, the need for wider and better road connectivity is the need of the hour. Chaos, traffic, and high tempers in such situations are unavoidable but then, why not save yourself from the wrath of it? At least, to prove your innocence before a judge in the court of law in case things take an ugly turn? Dash Cameras may not seem like a daily utility tool since they just record footage all day but as per our experience, they do come in very handy the day something happens. What’s another benefit of having one? The process of claiming insurance money gets that much more simpler and easier since a proof is readily available!

This is not a purchase but an investment. A wise one.

Fortunately, as the awareness about this important driving companion spreads among people from every walk of life, the roads get that much safer, the chances of accidents reduce by that much margin and consequently, it saves that much more time to prove the correct scenario in the court of law. Not only individuals, but a lot of our corporate clients stepped up to monitor the way their vehicles are being driven, thereby contributing to road and passenger safety.

The choice is yours. Why stop from investing in a Driving companion, user- friendly black box when the repercussion of a road accident in terms of mental stress, financial burden, legal issues clearly outweigh the marginal investment on a Dash Camera?
