Street Angel vehicle camera solution launches in UK

A new dashcam solution said to be the “most advanced onboard vehicle camera available” has launched in the UK.

Mark Stamper, group managing director at Camera Telematics

Developed by Irish vehicle solutions provider Camera Telematics and available for all types of vehicles, the Street Angel solution has been designed to give fleet operators “unrivalled” first notification of loss (FNOL) data in the event of an accident or incident on the road, thereby reducing the cost of claims and protecting the business and drivers against incidents of insurance fraud.

The UK launch follows on from the successful launch of Street Angel in Ireland in 2016 that has seen more than 200 businesses deploy Street Angel in the last 18 months.

The solution brings multiple benefits on one device, including:

  •   An SD-card free device with 128GB of internal memory – This prevents the possibility of SD card failure, or the card going “missing”.
  •   The increased memory size – the firm says most cameras are 32GB – also means more footage can be retained for longer, increasing the chances of retrieval, using the video on demand.
  •   24/7 Event monitoring as standard
  •   Scalable solution that can be upgraded to a three-camera system, with flexible options for additional cameras
  •   With superfast 4G connectivity, the Street Angel continually transmits data associated with vehicle speed, GPS position and shock axis sensor to a designated SSL encrypted server. This ensures data is safe and secure, and in the event of a collision, the unit automatically transmits all its data for that event.

The firm also has a global partner programme for tracking companies and resellers to represent the brand, or white label the technology into their offering.

Mark Stamper, group managing director at Camera Telematics, commented: “Street Angel gives fleet operators, not just peace-of-mind in ensuring safer driving and complete protection against fraudulent insurance claims on our roads, but also the reassurance of having the most advanced onboard vehicle camera available, which unlike other cameras, uniquely delivers all the features required on one device.”
