Driver record cameras or crash cams as they are also known, are becoming an a necessity in modern life.
We have all seen bad driving on a regular daily basis and heard the horror stories of insurance not paying out due to lack of evidence or even being blamed for a crash when the other driver was actually at fault.
Many quality dash cams also have the ability to run while the car is switched off giving you added securityof recording car park and shopping centre mishaps and recording people tampering and damaging while parked even at night.
System 12 can help install that Driver record system you already have. Neatly hiding cables from hanging over the dash by running behind factory trims and hard wiring them freeing up that 12 volt socket. We also have access to a large range of driver record solutions from premium brands and commercial range’s and we can help you select which model will best suit your need and budget.
Whether you drive for a profession, do the daily commute or even school drop off a Dash Cam can save you in more ways than one. With many car insurance companies now offering discounts for those that have one fitted, and can help expedite claims as you can provide video evidence of the crash.
Front driver record systems
A standard driver record is a single front facing camera that records while driving. While almost all crash cams are now 1080p. There is major differences between cheap, mid-level and premium quality driver record cameras. While a cheap camera ($99 -$199) will record may work fine during the day many will have issues working in bright light and night time, often resulting in blurry or no picture during crucial moments due to poor optics. Most mid-level ($200-$400) cameras will give excellent images day or night but are likely to be missing features like lane departure, collision warnings and the ability to record while the car is parked or turned off.
Front and rear driver record systems
Do not be caught out
While a front camera is great it only half a story. Aside from the obvious rear ended crashes, often its what happened earlier behind you that lead to the crash. Where they driving erratically and swerving all over the place? If you are side swiped a front camera may not show them if they turn off or move in traffic however a rear camera doubles your chance of capturing the offending vehicle.
Most front and rear camera kits are normally mid-level to premium models helping you to narrow your selection process.
