Connected systems come with a monthly data subscription which may seem like a significant additional cost on top of buying and installing the hardware. Opting for a non-connected system may seem like a logical option to save money but it often ends up costing your business more.
SD card systems need to be manually formatted every 8-10 weeks which I extremely time-consuming and will result in very high rates of video corruption if forgotten.
SD cards are automatically remote formatted saving you the hassle of another job and removing the risk of it being forgotten about.
Unless you manually check each camera regularly there is no way of knowing if it’s recording until it’s too late. If a camera misses an incident this can result in none fault claims ending up as own-fault due to lack of evidence.
Auto-detect and alert you to any recording loss caused or memory failure. This allows issues to be resolved quickly which massively reduce the chances of something vital being missed.

Auto upload of all heavy braking and steering events into the cloud provides an easy to access library of videos that can be reviewed and downloaded.
