Simply put, a dash cam (or dashcam) is a small video camera that attaches to your car's windshield and continuously records video as you drive. Dashcams were popularized in Russia; more than likely you have seen footage from a Russian dashboard camera. Sometimes a dashcam is called a car DVR (Digital Video Recorder), a car black box or an in-car camera system.

Dash cameras will provide irrefutable video evidence and act as silent witnesses in the event of an accident. The video evidence will clearly identify who’s at fault and what exactly happened.

• Cheap dash cams have missing segments between video recordings.

• Cheap dash cams cannot operate properly in conditions of extreme heat or cold.

• Cheap dash cams may have great specs, but the true video quality will nowhere be near the advertised HD or Full-HD

• Cheaper dashcam companies do not provide any warranty service.

• There are many dash cameras out there. However, do your research and buy products that have been tested and backed up with reputable warranty service. Altura Tech Caribbean stands behind all products that we sell.

Traffic incidents are the greatest source of loss for many businesses. As the number of collisions increase, the insurance companies are trying to close the claims as quickly as possible and rely heavily on the police and investigator reports to determine fault. Without sufficient supporting evidence the fault could be placed on both drivers or entirely on you or your driver. Our ‘Dashcams’ will provide your company, law enforcement, and all involved insurance companies with factual evidence to simulate the actuality of the incident. This will effectively provide all involved parties with a complete overview of the "WHO" , "WHAT" , "WHEN" , "WHERE" , "WHY" , and "HOW"

Yes, but can playback the video footage on any computer including both Windows and OSX. (The files will play back as either MP4 or AVI format). You simply insert the SD card from the camera into your computer and copy the files over. Some camera systems also come bundled with their very own viewing software which can also be downloaded to your PC; this will allow you to view additional information such as G-Sensor data and GPS maps. However, there are also a few new camera models available that allow you to playback video footage using a smartphone and Wi-Fi connection.

Yes, there are several types of dashcams, and while they come in all shapes and sizes, they may be classified into a few distinct categories as listed below:

Single-lens dashcams are the most basic type of dashcam. These record from a single camera lens, like a normal camcorder. Typically people mount these dashcams in their front windshield in order to record what is happening in front of the car.

Multiple-lens dashcams are a bit more complex. These dashcams can record from more than one camera lens at a time. Typically they utilize one forward-facing lens to record what is happening in front of the vehicle, and one inside-facing lens to record what is happening inside the vehicle. These are particularly useful for fleet or commercial vehicles where typically the driver of the vehicle is not the owner of the vehicle.

There are also multiple-lens dashcams that record in front of the vehicle like a single-lens model, but also use the input from a smaller remote camera (a camera mounted in the back of the vehicle - on the rear windshield) to record what is happening behind the vehicle (or pointed inside the vehicle) as well.

Rear-view mirror style dashcams are a special type of dashcam. These clip securely to the back of your existing rear-view mirror, and provide video from a small forward-facing lens. This style of dashcam is great for those wanting a less-conspicuous solution.

Action-cam style dashcams are a bit different than the traditional dashcam, these are used by those desiring a battery-powered or waterproof dash cam. In most cases, these don't need to be connected to a constant power source which is unlike most traditional dash cams. Some of these models can be mounted outside of the vehicle, no matter the conditions, and can even be set to perform loop-recording like a typical dashcam.

Professional dashcams are commercial-grade models designed for business use (fleet vehicles, taxis/Uber/Lyft drivers, delivery trucks, etc) or other commercial, municipal or government purposes. These high-reliability units are also desirable to those individuals seeking the added peace of mind that comes from using a professional-level device in their own vehicle.

Dashcams have many applications, but most importantly, they act as an impartial witness in case of an accident. Sadly, there are dishonest people in the world, and a dashcam provides irrefutable evidence of what happened before, during, and after an incident. No more "your word against theirs" - rest assured you will always have the truth on your side.

Many dashcam models provide GPS data logging as well. These camera units, along with the video, will provide a record of your position and speed at all times. This information, again, proves the facts such as your whereabouts at a particular time, and can also be used to prove (or perhaps more importantly: disprove) your speed. This GPS data can be overlaid on a Google-type map during video playback on your home computer.

A dashcam starts creating video files on an empty memory card. These video files are typically segmented into 1, 3, or 5 minute chunks, since it is easier to view and work with small video files on your computer rather than one long continuous file. When the memory card is full, the dashcam simply starts over at the beginning of the memory card, and in this way, never needs any attention from you until you have captured an incident on video that you would like to save. This is known as "loop recording", and is one of the most important abilities of dashcams.

No, we actually recommend not buying dash cams which have infrared lights situated on the front of the camera. In general these type of lights never work effectively on vehicle cameras, this is due to the “glare” of the infrared lights being reflected back into the camera lens from the inside of the windscreen. As long as your vehicles headlights are on, the camera will effectively pick up what your headlights do, all road and signage markings are reflective and so will easily be seen on any recorded video footage. Most of our car camera range now comes with Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology which gives a well-balanced exposure at night or in dark areas. It makes night shots brighter, and reduces strong light exposure to always achieve the clearest picture possible.

Most of us have heard of GPS, it was used for predominantly for in-car satellite navigation systems (Satnav’s). However GPS in a car camera is very different and not used for navigation, but instead, for recording co-ordinates. This basically means that when you come to playback a recorded video on your computer, a map will be displayed showing precisely where your vehicle was at any point on the video.

A "G Sensor" is a feature / setting that allows a specific video file that is actively being produced / recorded to be "locked" and protected from becoming deleted as the camera continues to record video while in " loop". It is similar to the Panic Button but is done automatically if the camera is jarred or senses a sudden shock. Cameras have low, medium and high settings. If the setting is set too high then the camera may "lock" every time you come to a quick stop or run over a pothole. The G-Sensor setting must be used cautiously and experimented with for each driver and vehicle. It is suggested that a new dash cam owner drive with it off or in the low setting in order to get a "feel" for how it functions in a particular vehicle and driving style.

In most cases the answer is yes. Our entire car camera range usually comes with at least one mounting bracket which has a sticky adhesive pad on it, all you need to do is peel away the backing to the pad, position where you want it on your windscreen and then push down to attach it. The camera then simply clips in to this mount and you can run the wiring around the edge of the screen and down to the cigarette lighter/12v socket. This attaches your camera to the windscreen, just like you would do with a satnav. On the other hand, if you are looking at having your camera hardwired to your vehicles battery then we always recommend using one of our professional auto electricians do the installation.

Yes, by connecting or ‘Hardwiring’ the car camera directly to your vehicles battery you not only achieve a much neater installation but it also means that if you have purchased a camera with the parking mode feature on it you’ll be able to record any events triggered by its internal sensor, even once you have turned off the ignition walked away.

Yes, the list is endless. Our entire car camera range can be used in cars, vans, HGV’s, coaches, minibuses, taxis, private hire vehicles and even in heavy plant machinery (JCB’s etc.), basically any vehicle as long as it has a windscreen and a cigarette lighter/12v socket. Alternatively you could hardwire it in to the vehicles battery.

Yes, our expert team of auto-electricians can install your new dashcam at a time and place that suits you, either at home, or at work, Monday to Friday. Once booked, one of our professionals’ fitters will hardwire your dashcam directly to your vehicles electrics, any excess wiring will be fully hidden away leaving you with a neat and tidy installation..

Yes, not everyone will want themselves, or maybe even their dubious taste in music to be heard whilst playing back recorded footage with others.

No, our car cameras already come supplied with an SD or Micro SD memory card, although you may wish to purchase a larger size card to be able to store more video footage.

No, all of our car cameras have a feature known as loop recording. This enables the camera to record any event until the memory card is full, after this time it will automatically start to record the newest video over the oldest files. This means the camera should always be able to store your standard video clips for significant periods of time without the need to keep clearing old files from the memory card.
