Car Dash Cams For Security

Car Security Stickers

 

Dashboard cameras are able to aid Law Enforcement Officers with actual footage of what actually happened prior to, during and even after an event. Dashboard cameras have been able to capture natural disasters like tornadoes, hail, lightning strikes and hurricane force winds….  

I don’t think a dashboard camera can be a bad thing, because it doesn’t require the driver to do anything that would distract them while driving.  They just have to turn it on and start recording at the beginning of their journey.

Some insurers offer lower premiums for drivers who have Dash Cams because they can provide a definitive version of how a collision occurred, or even a theft from the vehicle, saving costly and uncertain litigation to determine what actually happened.

Dash Cams don’t just record video while you are driving.  If you have one powered by a battery, you can also record what happens around your vehicle when it is parked.  Another way to use Car Dash Cams For Security.

 

A demonstration of the Cellink B a 12V battery pack that will keep your dash-cam running even when your engine isn’t.

 

Civil litigation is less of a focus in the UK, but the police’s crash investigators would certainly welcome the definitive and  objective record that a dashcam video can provide. It is also possible that if Dashcams become a more familiar sight on local cars that they will have a restraining effect on how some people drive, as well as a deterrent against theft or robbery.

As we have often said, there is no single solution to making our roads safer but dashcams would seem to be an obvious and logical extra tool.

 

 

Car Scams and Security

Car Scams & Security

Not all car scams involve second-hand car salesmen. This video shows a recent example of a new car scam, a so-called ‘Crash For Cash’ attempt to claim compensation for being hit by a vehicle.  A suspected compensation hunter runs towards a taxi, hurls herself onto its bonnet and appears to play dead in the road.

Dash Camera footage shows the woman sprinting across a junction in Blackpool before she spots the oncoming vehicle and suddenly launches herself in its direction.

(Video: Universal Media Online)

The taxi, a Nissan ENV200, then reversed and the woman can be seen lying motionless on the ground, while another vehicle driving in the other direction just drove around to avoid her.

The Taxi’s driver Christopher Stewart said: “From what I can remember she didn’t really try and jump on it, she just dived straight at the car”.

He also claimed that the woman’s male companion then ran over and raged at him off camera, allegedly threatening to kill him.

The Premier Cabs driver, from Blackpool, believes her actions were an attempted “crash for cash” scam and is thankful he had a Dashcam to prove that his car did not hit her!

More traditional Car Scams usually involve another car crashing into yours to fake a claim, there are numerous types of auto insurance scams but simply having a Dash Camera will help you to avoid them

Below you can see examples of other car scams, some potentially quite dangerous, these have been caught on camera in the U.S and Canada, but they are typical of what can happen almost anywhere.

DOD LS330W Car DVR Recorder with Advanced WDR Super Night Vision + 1080P 30FPS

DOD LS330W Car DVR Recorder Summary

 

What we like:

Fitting is very easy and secure.  Once it’s fitted in and set up how you want it, you can just forget about it as it switches itself on and off with the ignition on the car. < The speed indicator shown on the screen (if you choose to have it visible), is pretty accurate, which is useful if you want a quick reference to your speed without having to look down at the speedometer in the car.  

The images recorded are superb, both in different daylight situations and at night. You can be secure in the knowledge that what you see on the screen when you’re driving is pretty much what you will see in the recordings from the camera.   For such a small device the quality is surprising. Playback on the computer is simple too. The recordings are broken down into segments of your choice and played back on the computer along with the GPS logging screen showing in real time your exact location, speed (if you chose to have it displayed on your recordings), co ordinates, and the registration number of your car if you have entered it into the unit. All good and very relevant information in the event of any incident.

And of course, you can feel secure in the knowledge that if you have your own speed displayed and recorded on the recordings, it would still be there as ‘evidence’ too if you ever needed it!

 

What we don’t like:

If there were any criticisms at all, it would be that because these units need a micro sim SD Card to operate it would surely make more sense for the makers to supply a suitable SD Card that suits the camera ‘with’ the camera, instead of making you have to go and buy one of them seperately. Other than that it is probably one of the best sold on Amazon and all in all a great piece of kit.
