The Advantages of Dash Cams with Remote Live & Historical Streaming

July 31, 2023 | Jonathan Albright | Articles Fleet Management

Today’s fleet management landscape is more complex and challenging than ever before. Fleet managers grapple with issues like driver safety, efficiency, and logistics, while also ensuring compliance with ever-changing Federal and State regulations. Amid these many challenges, real-time visibility has become an indispensable tool, offering detailed insights to make more informed decisions.

So, why are dash cams with remote live & historical streaming essential for modern fleet management?

Let’s dive in.



Business as Usual

Monitor your fleet vehicles with remote live and historical video streaming.

Traditionally, if you wanted to grab footage from a particular event, you’d first have to physically access the vehicle, retrieve the stored footage, upload it to a computer, then comb through hours of footage manually. This creates an exhaustive time drain on you and your fleet.

And that’s precisely where advanced dash cams come in. Among these cutting-edge tools, FleetCam Pro sets itself apart by providing not just remote live streaming, but also remote historical streaming – a feature that has been a game-changer for many fleet managers. On top of that, fleet managers also benefit from FleetCam Pro’s remote wake and timelapse feature.

What does that mean for you?

You can still access your vehicle’s camera stream even when it’s off. Just switch it on and start streaming. And with timelapse, there’s no need to sit through unnecessary minutes or hours of footage if you want to review a chunk of time quickly.

Real-time streaming offered by FleetCam Pro allows fleet managers to see exactly what the drivers see, providing a layer of transparency that was previously unattainable. Whether it’s a dangerous driving situation or an unexpected road closure, fleet managers can respond more swiftly and accurately when they have all the facts right in front of them.



Remote Historical Streaming

By offering historical streaming, FleetCam Pro goes a step further. This feature provides an easily obtainable digital record of past events that can be accessed from anywhere. No more climbing into a vehicle to pull a memory card. It’s your footage when you need it. And with time-lapse review, you can save more time than ever.



Easy-to-Find Footage

Footage review with FleetCam Pro is easier than ever. Smart features categorize events automatically, eliminating the need to manually comb through extensive footage when you only need to see particular event types like harsh braking. Whether it’s an accident, sudden braking, cell phone use, or harsh cornering, locate your desired clips quickly and effortlessly. Additionally, FleetCam Pro offers more built-in ADAS & DMS safety features than leading competitors’ dash cams from Samsara, Verizon Connect, or Lytx.

Simply put, the efficiency and feature-rich capabilities of FleetCam Pro make its incident review a more streamlined, hassle-free process than you’ll find anywhere else.
