Park Safer and Smarter with AI-Powered Parking Mode Dash Cams!

Artificial intelligence (AI) has received a lot of attention in recent years, thanks to technological advancements that have made it more accessible and powerful than ever before. AI has the potential to change the way we live, work, and interact with one another while keeping human convenience in mind.

But did you know that, in addition to AI art generators, TikTok voice generators, and chatbots like ChatGPT, AI has been incorporated in dash cams as well? If not, here are some of our best-selling dash cams that are equipped with this high-level intelligence parking mode features.

Thinkware’s Smart Parking Mode

Thinkware's advanced parking mode surveillance, particularly for the U1000 4K UHD, Q1000 2K QHD, and X1000 2K QHD dual-channel models, is one of the reasons it is popular among security-conscious dash cam owners. Their technology enabled game-changing features in car surveillance such as impact detection with buffered recording, time lapse mode, and energy-saving modes.

For its AI entry, Thinkware equipped the Q1000 dash cam with protection from heat-related damage by the Smart Parking Mode feature, which switches to a low-power mode if the temperature inside the vehicle rises too high during Parking Surveillance. The dash cam will only record incidents caused by impacts until its operating temperature returns to normal, at which point it will be able to resume Motion Detection or Timelapse Parking mode.

Moreover, with the U1000, Thinkware also introduced the Radar Module, which enhances the dash cam's Energy Saving Parking Mode 2.0 with ultra-high frequency radar motion detection. It enables the camera to remain at rest for longer periods of time, thereby reducing power consumption. When the radar detects motion, it activates the camera and begins recording that segment. If an impact is detected, the pre-recorded motion footage will be used as a buffer on the impact footage, showing 10 seconds before and 10 seconds after the impact for a 20-second clip. The motion footage is not saved if no impact is detected.

FineVu GX1000’s AI Parking Mode

If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly dash cam that offers AI Parking Modes, you can check out the FineVu GX1000 2K QHD dual channel dash cam. It includes Intelligent AI features such as Absolute Power Saving Parking Mode, AI 2.0 Temperature Monitoring, and AI Damage Detection 2.0.

FineVu's Absolute Parking Mode provides you with the critical first 20 seconds of the incident when impact is detected. With 10-seconds before and after the event, no detail is missed from the scene.

Hot temperatures are not a problem with the GX1000 as well. Unlike other brands, the FineVu GX1000 continuously monitors the ambient temperature and, if extreme heat is detected, it will automatically switch to Power Saving Mode. It also has AI Damage Detection 2.0 for added security, where the impact area during parking is subdivided into eight directions and reported in multiple levels of impact size using machine learning techniques.

Other Recommended Dash Cams with Advanced Parking Mode:

VIOFO A139 Pro 3-Channel Dash Cam

The A139 Pro is a flagship dash cam from VIOFO, being the first to carry the Sony STARVIS 2 image technology. It’s available in up to three-channel configurations that’s best for keeping your car protected from front, rear, and inside. It also boasts its 4K video resolution for ultra smooth and crisp footage, which can even be improved by the included CPL filter in every package - no need to buy separately.

In terms of intelligent parking, the A139 Pro offers 3 different parking recording modes.

  • Auto Event Detection: Automatically record for 45s when detecting moving objects or impacts during parking. Optimized with buffered function, its 45s-video recording starts 15 seconds before and ends 30 seconds after the detected event.

  • Time Lapse Recording: Record a video at low frames at 1/2/3/5/10 fps and compress into a long file.

  • Low Bitrate Recording: Record videos continuously at low bitrate 4MB/s with audio recorded.

Take note that to enable parking mode, you have to hardwire install the dash cam to your vehicle. The A139 Pro is fully compatible with both the Type C HK3-C and HK4 ACC.

BlackVue DR970X-2CH LTE Dash Cam

The DR970X 2-CH LTE is a new cutting-edge dash cam, renowned for its professional design, advanced cloud features, and the capability to capture 4K UHD videos while having built-in LTE.

Aside from these, it also features customizable motion detection zones with buffered recording. Furthermore, the built-in power management circuitry ensures that your camera will never deplete your vehicle's battery when operating overnight, switching off if the car's battery level falls below a pre-set level.

Power Up Your Parking Mode with Dedicated Battery Packs

All the dash cams we mentioned above are designed with the best parking mode features, and even more, Bluetooth for seamless pairing, and built-in voltage monitors for BlackVues.

Additionally, for users who want to extend their parking mode functions, dash cam battery packs are an alternative to traditional hardwiring kits. Powered by Lithium Iron Phosphate or LiFePO4, these accessories are ideal for drivers who park for long periods of time and come in handy when the vehicle's battery is insufficient to power up the dash cam.

BlackVue B130X Ultra Magic Battery Pack

If you’re using a BlackVue dash cam like the DR970X and DR770X, we recommend the BlackVue B130X Ultra Magic Battery Pack. Compared to the previous BlackVue B-124X unit, this new model has 25% more power, while maintaining the same high reliability. It carries 7,500 mAh / 12.8 V / 96 Wh and includes a fuel gauge integrated circuit.

BlackboxMyCar PowerCell 8 Battery Pack

If you are looking for higher specifications, capacity, brand compatibility and better value for money, go for the BlackboxMyCar Powercell 8 battery pack.

Like the B-130X, it is built with the safest battery technology, LiFEPO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate), which will keep your dash cam running in parking mode for longer hours in extreme weather conditions.

Because of the unique characteristics of LiFePo4, the PowerCell 8 could be charged quickly in 50 minutes while also maintaining a longer life of up to 2,000 cycles even with frequent deep discharge cycles.

Unlike the B-130X that’s built solely for Blackvue dash cams, the BlackboxMyCar PowerCell 8 is compatible with most dash cams on the market - making it a more efficient choice to extend your parking mode in a safer, smarter, and more secure way!
