New dash cams bring added protection for fleets

Ring Automotive has added two new dash cams to its range, targeted specifically at fleets to provide vital evidence in the result of a collision.

The Trade PRO1 and Trade PRO2 dash cams join the Ring Automotive range

The Trade PRO1 and Trade PRO2 dash cameras are designed with a streamlined profile to be discreet within the vehicle and feature a fully adjustable lens to fit all windscreen types, as well as a 2.4-inch screen.

Cabin cameras are also available, and the devices include a lockable Micro SD slot and are hard wired into the fuse box to prevent users from unplugging the camera while travelling. This offers added reassurance to fleet operators and helps them to manage their workforce more effectively.

The Trade PRO1 dash camera includes an adjustable 110-degree lens with 720p HD resolution, along with 32GB of storage, while the Trade PRO2 dash camera comes with a 120-degree lens, offering 1080p and double the storage with 64GB.

The Trade PRO2 is also available with a GPS function, which stamps the location onto the video recording to help log journeys being made and password-protected firmware to prevent unwanted alteration of the captured footage.

Henry Bisson, marketing manager for Ring Automotive, said: “When involved in a collision, it’s understandable to miss key details, and even harder to secure evidence that will help settle insurance claims. As a result, we’re seeing a growing awareness around the benefits that an in-vehicle camera can offer motorists, particularly those who are required to drive regularly for work.

“By embracing new and advanced technology entering the market, we’re able to not only protect those driving the vehicle, but also provide operators with complete visibility across their fleet. This has led to greater efficiencies when solving disputes, and in some cases, improved driving.”

Both of products are compatible with 12V and 24V applications and have been specially designed for all motorists, from commuters in passenger cars, to commercial vehicle drivers.
