Increasing security with the use of car cameras

When it comes to car security, people generally think of car alarms and GPS tracking devices. What many people do not know is that car cameras are equally effective at tackling all surveillance issues. These products can be directly installed anywhere in the interior of your car, SUV or truck. Some of them can also be attached to the license plates to defend against car part thefts, which generally take place without actually breaking into the car. These lightweight and highly efficient cameras can be placed anywhere inside the car, where they are virtually impossible to detect. The images produced by these cameras are often of very high quality and can be used to solve tangled insurance cases.

Here are some of the most common benefits of car cameras:

• The camera feeds can work as concrete proof in all driving related cases.

• They also work as evidence for solving complex insurance cases involving car thefts or road accidents.

• The camera feed can also double up as evidence for law enforcement.

Car cameras can be installed within minutes by practically anyone. Their frame rates are generally around 25-30 frames per second and they typically come with a built-in recorder to store images for a long period of time.

Features of High-end Car Cameras

The following are some of the distinguishing features of high end car cameras:

• They come packed with a file over writing feature. This means older records are automatically replaced by newer ones.

• The video or images can be played back on any computer.

• Power cord can be directly attached to the lighter of the car.

• They boast of automatic battery backup in case the car is turned on.

• They provide continuous audio and video streaming.

Tips for Buying any CCTV DVR Recorder for Your Car

The recording device is responsible for storing and maintaining surveillance tapes. The traditional method of recording on tapes has been replaced with the newer digital recording methods. These devices store data on small SD cards which can have a storing capacity in the range of 8 to 32 GB. This means storing large amounts of data without the fear of running out of disc space. Another thing to keep in mind is what quality of recordings you wish. Better quality often implies a higher price.

Even motion detectors can now be integrated into the CCTV DVR Recorder of your car. This means that the car camera will remain inactive if there are no apparent movements and will spring into action as soon as its motion detectors are triggered. This allows saving a lot of precious car battery power and also helps cut back on recording useless feed on the car tape.

The format used for making these recordings is also of prime importance. For example, if you intend to stream the video through the internet, you will need a different format of recording than when you intend to view it on your computer.

Another innovative way of car recording can be obtained by integrating it with an existing car alarm system. Here, the recording starts only after the alarm has been triggered.

In Car Cameras Used in Police Cars

This is what the International Association of Chiefs of Police has to say about in car cameras used in police cabs – “It has become another valued tool in an officer’s arsenal that confirms and assures the high degree of professionalism they demonstrate daily in the performance of their duties.” The feed obtained from these cameras have played a prominent role in solving hundreds of cases each year, besides serving as training tutorials for various police academies. These car cameras also instill confidence in the general public and work as a shield against any abuse at the hands of the police.
