From accident prevention to correcting driver behaviour in real time, it seems there’s nothing a commercial dash cam can’t do for your fleet. But which device is the best option for you?
As it turns out, the answer doesn’t depend simply on the hardware’s capabilities. Your business needs determine how you’ll use your dash cam solution, and what you’ll use devices for. The top considerations for most fleet managers (outside of cost) typically include ease of use, driver safety and data storage. At ZenduIT, we have a finite, specialized roster of products. Limiting our offerings means we can focus on doing one thing really, really well: providing peace of mind, so you can focus on what matters.
If a dash cam is a vital tool for your business, we can help you pick the right one. In this post, we’ll break down our top choices and guide you through the key features and benefits of each so you can make the best decision for your fleet.
Considered the “bread and butter” of most commercial fleets, the Z6 is ZenduIT’s most popular dash cam model. The ZenduCAM Z6 protects your fleet by monitoring driving behaviour while giving your drivers full visibility to what’s on the road. This innovative dash cam provides real-time transmission of video, GPS location, driver behaviour and so much more.
Why is real-time data important? Fleet managers can choose the notifications, or trigger events, they want to receive. This means not having to scour through hours of video content while increasing safety, reducing liability and improving fleet performance.
The Z6 features a high-definition (1080p), road-facing camera with an adjustable wide-angle lens. Driver-facing devices have a 720p lens, and are equipped with an IR camera for night vision, so your drivers are safe and aware of their surroundings. You can stay connected to your fleet with either 3G or 4G connectivity, a built-in WiFi hotspot to connect with other enabled devices, and embedded GPS. The Z6 also has an internal battery, which means that footage can be recorded even while the vehicle is parked.
Perhaps one of the most noteworthy features of the Z6 is how the camera works synergistically with proprietary software to provide data analytics and comprehensive reporting. Set your fleet apart from the competition with custom dashboards and reports, either for single vehicles or for groups. You can view accurate data on location history, GPS route tracking, history logs and specific events while getting instant access to live streaming for each vehicle.
Even if you’re not a technophile, you’ll appreciate Z6’s advanced AI technology, which includes facial recognition algorithms to detect the causes of unsafe driving, including sharp turns, harsh braking, distracted driving, drowsiness or sudden acceleration. Advanced night vision means you can identify unsafe driving behaviour, at any hour of the day.
The best part? Audio and visual corrections can be sent to your drivers in real-time, encouraging good habits and ensuring safe driving in the future. An SOS button will alert you and save the last minute of video in the event of an accident, so you can quickly review events. Manage all of your vehicles (and coach your drivers) from a secure, cloud-based dashboard, knowing that your data, security and privacy are all General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant. This means only those who are approved on your team will have access to data, which is monitored 24/7.
Do you have large commercial vehicles? Do you need a more comprehensive system to keep them safe and accounted for? Protect your drivers and bigger business with this four-channel connected vehicle DVR; CP4S devices are 4G/LTE, which means they can upload content ten times faster than 3G devices. The CP4S dash cam system gives you a full picture of your fleet — nearly 360 degrees across four camera angles, to be exact. We’ll help protect your data with next-generation data security safeguards — including the SD card, video files, and data transmission — from power disruption, while encrypting all cloud data on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Have an existing network environment? Ask us about our WiFi-only model.
Powerful, compact and discreet, this commercial-grade dash cam fits in virtually any commercial vehicle. The CP4S records second-by-second data on the onboard SD card, and with a nearly 360-degree view, video footage tells the complete story of any incident, quickly resolving insurance claims and exonerating drivers. If an incident does occur, cameras gather 10 seconds of footage before and after the incident and send it to the cloud for immediate viewing.
Your time is valuable; save it for what matters. With instant notification of safety-critical events, real-time location and behaviour tracking, you can respond quickly when issues arise. The CP4S supports up to four HD cameras for crystal-clear video on all channels, and an in-cab monitor increases driver visibility and safety, while simultaneously reversing risky driving behaviour.
