Forward-Facing Camera Solutions to Protect Drivers and Fleets

SureCam’s forward-facing dash cam provides real time visibility into collisions, hazardous road conditions, and harsh driving to help exonerate drivers and reduce insurance claims costs. Forward-facing connected dash cams use harsh driving sensors to trigger instant notifications of incidents on the road and give fleet managers the supporting data along with video evidence.

 

How do forward-facing dash cams work?

Connected dash cams use g-force sensors to detect incidents and automatically upload HD video footage to SureCam’s cloud-based platform. G-force settings can be customised based on a fleet’s needs, which varies based on use and vehicle type. SureCam’s upload process is seamless and touchless and doesn’t require manual intervention.

Forward Facing Dash Cam vs Forward and Rear

SureCam offers both forward-facing and dual-facing dash cam solutions. The primary difference between forward and rear facing dash cams is that the forward-facing system records the road in front of the vehicle, whereas the dual-facing system also records the interior of the vehicle or a rear view. Forward-facing dash cams are SureCam’s most popular solution and are primarily used for insurance and claims mitigation.

Is a Front Dash Cam Enough?

Many fleets opt for a forward-facing camera solution. Forward-facing dash cams help resolve liability when incidents occur, alert safety managers to harsh driving, and provide opportunities for driver coaching on road awareness. If a collision occurs in the rear or side of the vehicle, forward-facing dash cams can often still resolve liability.

Connected forward-facing cameras offer many benefits to fleets. SureCam clients have reduced incident frequency by up to 55% and reduced cost per claim by up to 40% after installing connected cameras.

Forward-Facing Dash Cam Installation

The installation process is simple and seamless. The forward-facing camera mounts on the inside of the windshield using commercial grade adhesive tape, ensuring the hardware is secure through road vibrations and constant sun exposure. The base device is wired directly into the power source of the vehicle using a simple three wire plug in. The SureCam system can be self-installed or through one of SureCam’s verified installers.
