Dash Cams with Night Vision Can Help Your Fleet

Night vision dash cams can enhance fleet safety, mitigate blame for drivers, and cut expenses. Discover how to choose the best one for your fleet. If you manage a fleet, safety is crucial, and dash cams are a smart investment. Many accidents happen at night, making it essential to invest in a dash cam that records clear footage even in low light.

What is night vision?

Night vision technology encompasses various methods to enhance camera visibility in low-light conditions. It primarily includes thermal imaging, active illumination, and High Dynamic Range (HDR).


Active Illumination

- When it Works: Best at night.

- How it Works: Cameras employ infrared LED lights invisible to humans but detectable to cameras. These lights illuminate the area, enabling clear video recording in low-light conditions.


Thermal Imaging

- When it Works: Works day or night.

- How it Works: Utilizes heat emitted by objects. Differences in temperature, even subtle ones, are detected to create an electronic image resembling a heatmap.


High Dynamic Range (HDR)

- When it Works: Functions day or night.

- How it Works: Captures multiple shots with varying exposure levels, blending them into a single high-resolution image, even in low-light settings.


For fleet managers seeking optimal nighttime footage, dash cams employing active illumination are particularly recommended. While HDR and thermal imaging are available, active illumination is tailored specifically for nighttime recording.

Benefits of a dash cam with night vision

Dash cams with night vision are crucial for capturing clear footage in low-light conditions, such as at night or during bad weather, to enhance fleet safety. Here's why:

1. Protect Innocent Drivers: Trucks are often wrongly blamed for accidents. Night vision dash cams provide clear video evidence to determine fault accurately, crucial for preventing false claims. YUWEI's dash cams offer infrared LED lights for HD video even at night.

2. Improve Night Driving Safety: Driver fatigue and distraction are major causes of accidents, especially at night. Inward-facing dash cams with night vision help detect risky behaviors like drowsiness or distraction, enabling timely intervention or coaching. YUWEI provides coaching tools for ongoing improvement.

3. Reduce Fleet Costs: Motor vehicle crashes incur significant costs for employers. Dash cams can mitigate up to 50% of safety-related incidents, reducing expenses. High-quality footage can save on insurance costs by exonerating drivers and preventing penalties. YUWEI's dash cam footage helped identify policy violations, avoiding potential uninsurability.

By investing in dash cams with night vision, fleets can enhance safety, mitigate risks, and reduce costs effectively.

Low Light Dash Cam Features

1. Image Quality: Ensure crisp video with features like wide-angle lens, wide dynamic range (WDR), and full HD video (1080p resolution at 30 frames per second). This guarantees clear footage for license plate readability and detecting details like open or closed eyes even in low-light conditions.

2. Video Storage and Retrieval: Choose between micro SD card storage or cloud uploading. Cloud-connected dash cams, such as YUWEI's, automatically upload high-quality, encrypted footage of harsh events like collisions to the cloud, eliminating the need for manual retrieval.

3. Ease of Use: Opt for easy installation methods like using a strong adhesive for windshield mounting. YUWEI dash cams can be fully installed in about 10 minutes, including connecting to the Vehicle Gateway and setting up the dashboard. Once installed, they automatically start recording whenever the vehicle is in motion.

How YUWEI's Dash Cams Enhance Fleet Safety

In 2017, FMCSA reported that 32% of fatal crashes involving large trucks—over 1,350 cases—were due to driver impairment, with speeding and distraction as primary causes. Dash cams offer vital insights for fleet managers aiming to boost operational safety.

With YUWEI’s dash cams, you can:

- Enhance visibility with low-light recording and night vision: Infrared LED ensures clear and usable footage even at night.

- Implement in-cab voice alerts: Alert drivers to risky behavior like unbuckled seat belts or speeding.

- Customize speed limits: Set personalized speed limits and receive alerts for violations. YUWEI issues real-time voice alerts to warn drivers.

- Review harsh event footage: Identify unsafe practices post-incident and offer tailored safety coaching.

Dash Cam Q&A

What type of dash cam is most suitable for cars?

The Smart Video Remote Information Processing V5 is a feature-rich 4G dash cam designed specifically for the automotive video surveillance industry. It features both front and rear dash cams, supporting up to 4 channels of cameras for real-time audio and video recording, with dual TF card storage. It utilizes global 4G network connectivity for real-time video transmission, along with GPS/BDS positioning for accurate tracking. The V5 dash cam also integrates built-in active safety algorithms (ADAS, DSM) to enhance security, widely used in industries such as ride-hailing, taxi, logistics, and government vehicles.

Will the dash cam record my location?

The YUWEI dash cam supports Global Positioning System (GPS) for tracking your location and speed, a gravity sensor for collision detection, and WiFi for transferring footage from the dash cam to your phone. It also has a parking mode, which automatically starts recording if your car experiences a collision while parked.

Is a 128GB dash cam enough?

A 128GB SD card can effectively handle 4K dash cam footage, but it depends on the camera's bitrate and frame rate. 4K footage requires higher bitrates and frame rates, meaning the recording time on a 128GB SD card will be shorter compared to 1080p footage. However, for fleet tracking management, 1080p recording resolution is typically sufficient.

How much does a dash cam cost?

The price ranges from $25 to $300. The cost of a single in-car camera from YUWEI is $25, for quotes on multifunctional in-car cameras, you can contact (hello@Yuweitek.com).

Are there wireless dash cams available?

Wireless dash cams are those that support Wi-Fi connectivity. They can upload footage of your surroundings to cloud storage. If your camera is tampered with during an event, you can view the footage and ascertain the facts. However, this is only effective when the dash cam has an internet connection.
