Forward Facing Dash Camera Solutions for Commercial Vehicles
SureCam’s forward-facing connected dash cam provides fleet operators with automatic real time visibility into collisions, hazardous road conditions, and harsh driving without the need for driver intervention.
Also referred to as “road facing” and “front facing” connected dash cams, SureCam’s forward-facing connected dash cameras use harsh driving sensors to trigger instant notifications of incidents as they occur on the road to give fleet managers the supporting data along with video evidence they need to exonerate drivers and reduce insurance claims costs.
How do forward-facing connected dash cams work?
Connected dash cams use g-force sensors to detect incidents and automatically upload HD video footage over a cellular network directly to SureCam’s cloud-based platform. G-force settings can be customized and configured remotely 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: Which Dash Cam is Better?
SureCam offers both forward-facing and dual-facing connected dash cam solutions. The primary difference between forward and dual 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 at the same time.
Forward-facing dash cams are SureCam’s most popular solution and are primarily used for insurance and claims mitigation. Fleets wanting more visibility into driver activity for coaching purposes often consider the dual-facing solution.
Is a Front Dash Cam Enough for Evidence?
Yes, many fleets opt for a forward-facing connected dash 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.
Due to the connected nature of the dash camera, fleet operators get instant notifications when incidents occur, often enabling them to send the video evidence directly to the driver to aid in the information gathering for the police report.
