Dash cameras – protecting your fleet

In-vehicle cameras, also known as ‘Dash-cams’ have gained recognition as a tool to record road accidents and unexpected events to help provide irrefutable evidence in an insurance claim. They ensure peace of mind if a car accident wasn’t your fault or if your car has been damaged.


While these have often been thought of as a consumer product, Fleet Managers and those who operate vehicles as part of their work should consider installing the Dash Cameras, to protect against bad drivers.

Some insurance companies are also rewarding their customers who install dash cameras with discounts off their premiums. For Fleet Managers this could be a saving that really adds up.

New to Ring’s Vehicle Safety Systems, a range of in-car cameras that are suitable for 12v vehicles, ideal for fleets that operate cars, mini vans or vans.

The RBGDC10 Dash Camera system with its high-resolution, 3 mega pixel image sensor has a fully adjustable 1.5” LCD screen including night vision LEDS.

The G sensor data protection automatically senses a crash and locks the video against overwriting, so crucial footage is saved. The camera also includes a built-in microphone to detect any sounds in the vehicle. The videos are saved using loop recording, with new footage overwriting old, which means that you won’t run out of space. The camera also features auto on/off, so you never miss a moment and date/time stamp, all of which are crucial if you are presenting evidence.

The RBGDC50 Dash Camera system includes all the above features but what sets it apart is its 2.7” wide screen display. Also included is a number plate stamp, which once you have keyed it into your camera system, it will always identify your number plate on every piece of video footage.

Top of the range is the RBGDC200 compact camera which captures video footage whilst driving in FULL HD 1080P resolution. The camera has a 2.0” LCD screen for even better field of vision, providing a wider view in front of the vehicle. GPS software provides the exact location, records your speed and tracks an entire journey for viewing later on Google maps. This software is useful if for example, another road user is disputing blame and footage alone isn’t enough to confirm important details.
