Obviously, the cameras themselves are an extremely important part of a fleet vehicle camera system. You’ll want to make sure the system has multiple camera options, views, and locations in addition to being well-suited for the road vibrations, varying light availability, and more. Some competitors only offer 140-150 degree camera angles toward the road or the driver like Surfsight and SmartWitness Camera. Fleetcam offers up to 8 cameras including dome cameras for drivers, road cameras, and side cameras, providing a 360-degree view of the vehicle.
Fleetcam cameras are equipped with infrared sensors to record in the dark, anti-vibration features to capture clear videos, and audio capabilities so you can hear what’s happening inside the vehicle. Fleetcam cameras also record in dual-stream, one as a low-quality 480p stream and one as a high-quality 720p stream. This allows fleet managers to start by looking at the low-quality stream so you don’t waste bandwidth on your upload. Then, if you find something you need to download, you’re able to download it in the 720p version. This system also automatically creates a backup because it utilizes two SDs cards. If one of them were to go bad, you still have the other one for backup.
