Road Angel dashcam brings parking protection

The Halo begins recording out of both the front and rear windows when it sees any motion or senses a shock. Under the parking mode, the Halo must be hardwired to the car's battery. It automatically enters into parking mode when the ignition is switched off, using a small percentage of the car’s battery to power up and record any movement whilst an in-built power management system ensures the car’s battery is never depleted.

The Halo films for 15 seconds before and 15 seconds after the motion/shock was detected. Footage is captured from both the front and rear cameras, which both have a wide field of view (150°). Footage is recorded in direct to the included SD memory card in High Definition (HD). The video files are then locked down for playback later.

Carys Kerr from the Road Angel Group said: “Parking protection means that if your vehicle is damaged when it’s parked up, you can use the video footage to identify and bring the guilty person to justice and avoid claiming on your insurance or paying for the repairs yourself.

“Having two angles definitely improves the chances of recording the incident and being able to track down the person at fault,” she added.
