Dash cam footage stored on-vehicle not best for fleets, warns ProVision
ProVision warns fleet operators that dash cam footage stored locally can be inaccessible if a vehicle is impounded following an accident, thereby the video cannot be used in insurance claims and defence.
The company says its cloud-connected solutions offer three significant advantages over traditional vehicle camera systems and dashcams: High-resolution footage can be accessed and downloaded remotely, fleet managers can see at a glance if a vehicle has a camera or recording system fault and a ‘Delayed Switch-Off’ feature continues to run up to 24 hours after the engine is switched off.
Simon Murray, Sales & Marketing Director at ProVision, said: “We work with our customers to find a solution that best fits their fleet, but always recommend a cloud-based system so that footage is always accessible.
“We cannot stress strongly enough the importance of remote access to your camera system. Many of our customers come to us after experiencing a serious incident for which they were never able to retrieve their footage. Our system provides the comfort of always knowing that the cameras on each vehicle are working and that, should you need it, you can retrieve the footage.”
