Always On Video Security
A BlackVue isn’t just a simple dash cam, it’s a complete video surveillance system, keeping an eye and ear on your vehicle even when you’re not around, thanks to Intelligent Parking Mode.
When parked it uses motion and vibration sensors to detect events, recording and storing video clips for later viewing, or informing you LIVE via the BlackVue Cloud app and 4G connection – through the night if necessary, without impacting on your vehicle’s battery thanks to the in-built voltage monitor.
Intelligent Parking Mode
Dash cams are designed to record your drive, but did you know that the BlackVue DR970X can also monitor your vehicle when you’re not around?
BlackVue’s unique Intelligent Parking Mode is ideal if you worry about hit-and-runs, theft or vandalism while your vehicle is parked and left unattended.
The DR970X-1CH automatically switches to Parking Mode when the ignition is switched off, and will continue to monitor you’re your vehicle, recording and storing events for review later – or alerting you in real time via the BlackVue app if you are using the optional CM100LTE connectivity module. Video buffering ensures that your camera will also record the seconds leading up to the event, ensuring you have the whole picture.
The DR970X-1CH’s in-built power management circuitry ensures that your camera will never deplete your vehicle’s battery when operating overnight, switching-off should the car’s battery level drop below a pre-defined level.
For extended recording times simply add a Power Magic Ultra B-130, B-124X or B-112 battery.
The DR970X-1CH supports two Parking Mode options, Motion and Impact Detection, and Time Lapse.
Motion and Impact detection mode uses your cameras image sensor to detect movement, and the inbuilt accelerometer/G-sensor to detect bumps or impacts. To reduce the number of unwanted recordings triggered by motion and movement, the DR970X-1CH can specify areas to ignore, eliminating recordings triggered by things like swaying trees, far-away moving objects, etc.
In Time Lapse mode, to reduce the size of the video files and save SD card space, the camera will continuously record at just 1FPS (one frame per second), rather than the standard 30 FPS. All event clips however are recorded at full resolution and 30FPS. A standard 64GB microSD card can store over 48hrs of time lapse video at the highest (Extreme) video quality level.
