This is the main area where you will browse triggered incidents. This is also where you will view ‘high’ level alerts, panic button (“button press”) events and “input1” triggers.
All users with active incident notifications will receive an email alert (provided email notifications are activated for the respective user) for high incident occurrences and the respective video will begin to upload onto the platform immediately after an incident is captured.
After clicking on a highlighted incident, you will be brought to a page detailing the trip itself. Within this section, you have the option to view the map of the selected trip, telemetry data and a link to the video itself.
In this section, you will find all the low / medium / high event triggered recording video files. SureCam devices will automatically trigger only high g-force events. All other events maybe requested from the device itself by clicking the 'Upload' option to the right of each event.
NOTE: SureCam policy is to store all device data, along with uploaded video footage, for up to 60 days. If retaining video for a given incident or accident is a priority, please ensure that footage is downloaded and stored locally within your records.
If there is a reported incident or complaint for a vehicle but no high alert, you can click the checkbox to the left of the device serial number on the “List Devices” page and then browse to the “Videos” tab to view the low or medium event triggered alert and accompanied video.
If there is a reported incident or complaint for a vehicle without triggered event footage, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com as soon as possible to request a video pull. Once the footage has been requested, the videos can be accessed from the Videos tab as well.
Click the checkbox next to a device on the “List Devices” page and browse to “Trips” on the left menu. Here you will see a summary of all the trips for the checked asset / vehicle, along with a list of all ‘Incidents’ and ‘Videos’ that were triggered during that trip. Incidents and videos can be manually retrieved here.
All vehicle activity including GPS valid, invalid, ignition on/off as well as journey stop/starts and much more. This page is primarily used for troubleshooting and diagnosis.
Low Event: The g-force has been triggered within the low g-force parameter settings
Medium Event: The g-force has been triggered within the medium g-force parameter settings
High Event: The g-force has been triggered within or greater than the high g-force parameter settings
**If you would like to modify your g-force parameters (for less sensitivity or more sensitivity) please contact support at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to request this change**
We use this page to compare vehicle to vehicle statistics and to check how many videos we are recording on a 7, 14 or 30-day period. A score is given to each low, medium and high event and then weighted against the miles driven.
If the vehicles are similar in type, weight and operating in the same areas, then the vehicles at the top of the list are displaying the most at-risk-driving-behavior.
The projects tab allows you to view and update device settings across your fleet. When selecting projects, you will see a list of all projects currently assigned to your account. If you have multiple accounts, you will have a list of all projects currently assigned to your login credentials
