I predict that 2019 will be a banner year for dash cams and let me explain why. While 2018 we saw pretty much the same from most manufacturers, there were a couple of standouts that broke the mold. That means in 2019, many are playing catch up or are readying units with very unique features. One such company is PureGear as they today announced the PureCam Connected Car Security System that has built in 4G LTE, Dual Lenses, and GPS.
What makes this a standout dash cam is that the PureCam is equipped with the latest technology and safety features to safeguard you and your car from theft, crashes and other mishaps. Dual cams means both forward and back views while the 4G LTE allows for cloud recording and live streaming capabilities.
The demand for security cameras in the car is strong, with consumers desiring protection and evidentiary proof in case of an incident. Further, U.S. wholesale shipments of dash cams is expected to hit 285,000 this year, up 20% from 2017 (according to the Consumer Technology Association).
PureCam’s built-in GPS helps you quickly find your vehicle if you forgot where you parked it or if it is stolen. With dual cameras recording both the inside and outside of your vehicle, you can remotely view it via live streaming from the PureCam app on your smart device. Prominent LED light provides more security to your car, flashing blue when in parking mode to deter would-be thieves.
PureCam’s G-Sensor detects incidents when you’re in your car or away from it, sending alerts to your phone. When the G-Sensor is triggered, such as in an accident or break-in, PureCam will automatically upload emergency video to the cloud for backup recording. (Normally, all video footage is stored in the included 16GB micro SD memory card.) Interior infrared lighting automatically activates during night time to maximize visibility for live streaming and videos.
Ideal for many types of drivers, PureCam helps ensure security for all. For elderly drivers and parents of teen drivers, PureCam provides peace of mind, automatically recording any accidents and digitally recalling the accident details. Carpooling parents can even use the PureCam to capture video of their unruly or misbehaving passengers and share with the passengers’ parents. Road warriors can locate their parked car when in an unfamiliar location and be assured that they will always have Wi-Fi connectivity with PureCam’s mobile Hotspot capability. For the professional driver, who is always on the road, the ability to retrieve video in the event of an accident or a disruptive passenger is particularly critical. The mobile Hotspot also ensures that professional drivers never lose signal or miss an assignment.
“At PureGear, we design solutions that help protect and enrich active lifestyles—whether that be screen protection for mobile phones or a security camera for your car,” said Mike Cavanah, president of PureGear. “With the PureGear PureCam in their vehicles, people can feel safer and more secure, whether they or a loved one is driving.”
Installation is easy. Plug it into your car’s on-board diagnostics (OBD-II) port (cable included). You control the PureCam from the camera itself and from the PureCam app.
