Car cameras are just one of the ways to protect your vehicle. There are a number of different types of car cameras in today’s market that have become more and more popular, serving a variety of services. There are car cameras that record the actions of drivers and passengers inside the vehicle; car cameras that record the actions of other drivers on the road; and cameras that display, to the driver, the area at the rear of the car. Car cameras have become a useful tool to insurance companies, who are now able to watch recordings of in-car and front-facing cameras to determine who is responsible for a collision, for example. Reversing cameras have become useful to drivers who are trying to park in a tight space, so that damage to the rear of the car can be prevented.
In-Car Witness Cameras
Many different types of businesses, including taxis and chauffeurs, transport and haulage, have been able to make use of in-car witness cameras to record the actions of drivers and passengers in the vehicles. The video footage becomes particularly useful when analysing the events in the vehicle leading up to an incident. A number of the in-car witness cameras come with a smart search facility that allows you to search for a particular incident using criteria such as, maximum speeds and G-force level, therefore saving you time and money. Other in-car witness cameras are designed in a way that makes them easy to install and easy on the eye. Depending on the insurance company you are with and your circumstances, in-car witness cameras have the additional benefit of being insurance approved and therefore your insurance company may be able to offer you discounts on your premium.
Forward-facing cameras are used to record the actions of other drivers on the road and are often used alongside in-car witness cameras to provide further detail in the event of a collision.
Reversing cameras use an internal monitor to display the area at the rear of the vehicle to the driver in situations where parking may be difficult. Reversing cameras are often used alongside parking sensors in order to reduce the stress of parking and the risk of damaging the body of your car.
