Passive Cam Devices

passive camera devicesBusiness owners who operate work vehicles or commercial trucks to run their day-to-day operations need reliable tracking and security systems to protect these business assets. Passive cam devices for fleet vehicles offer reliable video data for use in insurance claims, training programs, and for increasing productivity within an organization. Smart Fleet offers passive cam devices with top-notch functionality and security, and these systems integrate seamlessly with the rest of the Smart Fleet platform as well as other popular enterprise applications.

How Do Passive Cam Devices Work?

All companies that use work vehicles need reliable methods of protecting and monitoring their vehicles and the drivers who operate them. Passive cam devices from Smart Fleet turn on and off with the vehicle’s ignition once installed. Once installed, passive cam devices start recording as soon as drivers start their work vehicles and can record up to 3.5 hours without interruption at 30 frames per second in 720p high-definition quality. It’s also possible to extend this uninterrupted recording time with slightly reduced video quality. Once vehicles stop and drivers shut off their vehicles’ ignition, passive cam devices finalize recording and power down, ready to resume for the next journey.

Passive cam devices provide incredible value thanks to their solid construction. Smart Fleet offers the Rosco Cyl-V passive camera, complete with a dual lock security system to prevent tampering, unauthorized removal, and SD card removal. The standard SD storage size is 16 gigabytes with the option to increase SD storage to larger sizes. The Rosco Cyl-V passive cam devices from Smart Fleet use an infinite continuous loop recording cycle. As the system records new video is overwrites the oldest footage in a seamless cycle. However, Cyl-V passive cam devices feature built-in accelerometers to track G-force events and highlights footage capturing such events for easy viewing later.

Benefits of Purchasing Passive Cam Devices for Your Fleet

Passive cam devices offer peace of mind, security, and protection in the event of an accident. Smart Fleet offers high-quality passive cam devices capable of capturing events as they occur, providing fleet owners with video data for use in insurance disputes and other situations. For example, your fleet could use captured video data for training purposes or as a defense against an illegitimate insurance claim from another driver after an accident.

Smart Fleet’s passive cam devices also integrate with GPS tracking systems to allow business owners to match recordings with geographic coordinates for even more extensive protection when accidents happen. The Cyl-V passive cam devices from Smart Fleet also come with Driver Event Buttons, allowing drivers to activate a highlight recording on demand.

The biggest benefit to choosing Smart Fleet’s passive cam devices is peace of mind. Every driver will have an extra layer of security in case accidents happen as well as additional incentive to drive safely and abide by traffic laws. Unfortunately, some drivers take the apparent freedom of the open road as license to drive unsafely. Not only can this lead to serious accidents, but it can also cause legal problems for business owners. Passive cam systems inherently increase driver accountability so drivers can reflect the values of their employers and conduct their routes responsibly.

Training is also an important part of many organizations’ operations. Passive cam devices can record veteran drivers during their routes and refer to past traffic incidents to teach new drivers their expectations as well as guidance for handling many different types of situations on the road. Passive cam devices could become more than just extra security; they could also become valuable training tools for growing businesses.

Benefits of the Smart Fleet GPS Fleet Tracking System

Many GPS tracking service providers only offer limited back-end support or no support at all, selling customers GPS tracking hardware with little to no instruction as to how to get the most value out of it. Smart Fleet takes a different approach by providing a robust selection of hardware and services and guidance for using all these tools to maximum effect.

The Smart Fleet GPS Fleet Tracking System offers fleet owners the choice between hardwired GPS tracking devices and convenient plug and play systems with optional dashboard camera functionality. These tools are just one layer of the service provided by Smart Fleet.

Fleet owners can choose one of three levels of service for their organizations based on how much back-end support and customization they require. Each level of service comes with the same high-quality hardware and reliable software in an intuitive format, all backed by the support and guidance of the Smart Fleet team.

Alerts can also notify fleet owners and fleet supervisors of idling time and drivers using their vehicles for unauthorized purposes.
  • Video telematics. Video recording technology allows fleet owners to retain invaluable footage to handle insurance claims.
  • Vehicle maintenance alerts. GPS fleet tracking devices from Smart Fleet connect to vehicle systems and can alert fleet supervisors of maintenance problems as soon as they appear.
