Things to Look for When Purchasing a Dashcam?

May 12, 2021

The telematics industry is progressively pushing to be in the forefront of technology. The future of fleet management is the Dashcam, which fuses video with telematics. It combines the value of telematic-based fleet management and the confidence of video tracking and driver monitoring, all in one device.  As they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words”.

Like most things, you get what you pay for, and the same goes for Dashcam devices. Prices for Dashcam can range from $50 for a simple consumer-grade unit to up to $500+ for a system with integrated IoT capabilities, and it’s vital to know your budget when shopping.  Keep in mind that a higher price tag means a richer, business-oriented feature set with greater longevity so investing in a quality Dashcam can save you money in the long run. We’ve compiled a list of the most important things to look for when you’re shopping for a Dashcam, and more specifically, what Zubie Dashcam offers. 

Here are a few things to consider when purchasing a Dashcam:

Is the device designed for consumers or business operations?

Dashcams designed for commercial use, and specifically multi-fleet use, will have different features and capabilities than a Dashcam for a personal vehicle. For commercial fleet management, you need a device that will track vehicle data such as mileage, driver performance, location and vehicle health. 

Is Camera Quality Important to You?

Arguably the most important part of the Dashcam device is the camera, and knowing what quality and resolution it has makes a difference. Camera quality can range from 480p to 1296p. Purchasing a lower quality Dashcam will result in lower video quality, which means you may be missing features like nighttime image capture. 

What it Takes to Installation the Device?

How long will it take to install? Will I need to hire someone with technical expertise? These are all questions that will need to be considered when deciding on which Dashcam to purchase. Especially since you will most likely be installing devices into most or all of the vehicles in your fleet (which could be a time-consuming task).  

How is the Software Integrated?

The best part about all of this, is within 7-10 minutes, we can show you a demo of the solution in action and demonstrate how we may possibly help you gain better insights into your fleet.
