Dashcam Bounty Theater Presents: Act I

The Watcher on the Windshield | The True Story From a Dashcam Who Never Sleeps on the Job.

This dashcam video footage is brought to you thanks to a customer of ours through our Video Bounty Program.

If you've ever wondered if you would actually put features like Parking Mode or WiFi connectivity to use, this customer's story may convince you that it's worth the investment. It may give you the evidence you need to get someone fired. Allow us to explain.

While our customer's car was in the shop, his BlackVue DR650S-2CH dash cam detected an impact while in parking mode.

In order to take advantage of all of the security features that the BlackVue 650S series offers, our customer has a Power Magic PRO and a WiFi hotspot installed in his vehicle along with the BlackVue app installed on his phone. He received a push notification that his vehicle detected an impact. He was immediately able to watch the footage of the incident on his phone.

Here's what happened in our customer's own words:

"This used to be my mechanic.

My mechanic thought playing football in his shop is a good idea. Well, he didn't tell me, but my impact detection on my Blackvue did. Funny because he was the one who installed the system 2 months prior."

Curious to learn more about BlackVue's features like BlackVue Over-The-Cloud, parking mode, WiFi connectivity, the Power Magic PRO, and the BlackVue app?
