Vehicle Cameras – CCTV
Vehicle cameras have become more and more popular as they provide peace of mind if ever there is a dispute arising from incidents; in-cab cameras allow fleet managers to observe drivers to ensure adherence to mobile phone and smoking laws and check training needs; rear facing cameras can also help resolve disputes from rear-end accidents, plus, some insurers will even consider a discount on premiums if a camera is fitted to a vehicle.
So which one to go for? There is such a variety available with a range of wide angle lens options, some with both front and rear cameras, others with several lenses that can record a variety of angles while most now include GPS positioning as standard.
We supply dash cams from as little as £50 and you can choose to plug them into the cigar lighter or we can arrange for an engineer to hardwire them into your vehicles. Alternatively, if you have already purchased the cameras, we can do the hardwired installation for you.
Streaming cameras that can integrate with our MyFleet Live telematics platform come at more of a premium but wow, they are impressive. It is worth looking at these when you want the camera to be more robust and more securely fixed or you want it to act as the vehicle tracking device as well. If you get a higher than normal number of incidents across your fleet, this could well be the option for you as not only can you alert play back an incident through the system within seconds but you can also play back harsh acceleration, braking and cornering events for driver debriefs and to aid driver training which should help to prevent the incidents happening in the first place.
Other options include installing additional cameras around the vehicle which give you the protection against fraudulent claims and for the times when other users of the road may have been the real cause of the incident. With some camera solutions you can also view live what is happening in the vehicle at any time.
There are so many questions, and it is our mission at Fleet Software Solutions to provide the expertise so that you can make an informed decision the first time to get the right vehicle camera (CCTV) solution for your business, whatever your requirement.
With MyFleet Live, you can see a huge range of different devices all reporting in alongside the cameras on one platform. These include mileage capture dongles, traditional black boxes, OBD plug-ins and CANBus compatible hardware. As new technologies emerge, we will simply integrate them to the platform guaranteeing you have the latest devices available without having to switch software providers over and over again.
