8 factors to consider when selecting a fleet car camera system

When it comes to protecting your fleet and ensuring the safety of your drivers and other road users, a high-quality camera system is a must. But with so many options on the market, how do you choose the right one for your needs? Here are 5 factors to look out for when selecting a fleet camera system:

The most important aspect of any camera is the quality of the video it is capturing. Look for a system with high-definition quality to ensure that you have a clear and accurate record of any incidents. Fleet Witness utilise 1080P HD cameras.

Having an in-cab viewing monitor that can display the imagery captured by the camera system is crucial for empowering your drivers and eliminating blind spots. Fleet Witness use a HDMI monitor for a crisp, clear image.

Different camera systems provide varying degrees of visibility. Consider the types of accidents that your fleet is most likely to have (such as side swipes or rear-end collisions) and check that your camera system can provide you with the visibility you require if your system has restricted coverage.

A complete fleet camera system should include some form of collision detection warning to warn drivers of possible hazards and to give added safety to other road users such as pedestrians and cyclists.

Finally, ensure that all data captured by your cameras are securely stored to inhibit unauthorised access. It’s also good practise to periodically check that your system is functioning as expected. A functional system is a good system. Fleet Witness use the latest SSD technology and our Fleet Witness Live platform will notify you if a camera, or channel fails.
