Security Camera System


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello,

I picked up my new Sierra last weekend and am really happy with it. That said I am guessing some of my work parking neighbors will not be…

 

I live in Boulder, CO, the land of EVs and Subarus, and people are not that great at driving/parking. My old vehicle would get dinged and scraped by other drivers, particularly in my work parking lot, on a regular basis. I never once was left a note by someone who did it. Does anyone have a camera system they recommend to deal with this? I see a ton on amazon that claim they will turn on after impacts but I suspect a door ding or a car slowing peeling my paint off will not activate them.

 

Thank you for your suggestions!

Dan

I was recently looking into the fitcamx universal because the integration was smooth, so I'm curious what others will say. Unfortunately that one doesn't have parkign mode on it. I really just want the dashcam for liability purposes (recently ran off the road pulling my 33' trailer). But having that added assurance while it's parked would be nice.

I usually back into any parking spot then I have my dashcam (a Viofo A129) on all the time.  I don't have the rear camera installed yet and of course they won't cover the sides so I don't get 360 coverage.  I have the power for it ran so I can either use the cigarette lighter or the USB port (One is on all the time but can't remember which is which). That way I can change it to not be on all the time in case I want to.  I drive it daily so not worried about the truck battery plus they don't draw that much.

Blackvue and Thinkware are two of the best and have a parking mode along with motion sensors and impact. I had to return the Blackvue as the wifi is a big issue with the truck. Great camera though. zi am now ordering the Thinkware. The GM accessory camera is made by Thinkware.

I've got a Thinkware X1000 in my truck and the F200 Pro in the family car.    Both have parking mode.   You can watch and download the videos to your phone with the F200, where as you're stuck watching them on the screen of the X1000 unless you pull the SD card.
