Low-light scenarios can be tricky when recording video. However, with the incorporation of infrared (IR) technology, nightvision dashcams are a great solution to the problem of recording the interior of a vehicle at night. A dashcam with nightvision is typically a two-channel (two camera angles) system where the inside-facing camera utilize infrared LEDs to invisibly illuminate dark vehicle interiors at night. These types of dashcams are ideal for rideshare or fleet drivers who are driving primarily at night or in low-light situations.
Dashcams with infrared LEDs are usually positioned where the front camera faces out the front windshield, and the secondary IR camera is positioned to view the interior of a vehicle, such as with the Garmin Tandem, though in the case of the BlackVue DR770X-2CH-Truck the secondary camera is separate and waterproof so it may be mounted externally at the rear of the box truck or delivery vehicle. We also have new 3-channel (3 camera lens) systems that cover front + rear + interior (with infrared lens) such as the BlackVue DR770X-BOX system.
Example Benefits of Dashcams with Nightvision:
- Record crisp, clear footage even in low-light situations
- Perfect for taxis, rideshare (Uber, Lyft) professionals, or truck drivers who have long stretches of time on the road, and often drive at night
- Catch a car thief in the act and even identify them with clear footage thanks to the built-infrared LEDs
If you don't want to compromise your security because of low-light situations, then a nightvision dashcam is a must for you.
