What is Parking Mode by Motion Detection?

What is Parking Mode?

Many dashcams come standard with a parking mode. By hardwiring the dashcam to your vehicle, the dashcam would be able to act as a CCTV when the vehicle ignition is turned off. Equipped with motion-detection technologies, the parking mode conserves energy by only turning on when motion is detected in the vicinity. A prime example of how parking mode can be useful is shown in the video below. In the video, a hit and "stay" occurred in which the person hit our car and simply walked off. Thanks to the parking mode feature, we were able to resolve our problem fairly quickly. Note: Only certain dash cameras offer Parking Mode by Motion Detection. Most Korean dash cams are integrated with this feature. All Thinkware, BlackVue, and BlackSys dash cameras are equipped with Parking Mode by Motion Detection. 

Our favourite parking mode dashcams are: Thinkware F770, BlackSys CH-100B, and Thinkware F50

Benefits of Parking Mode
Why do we need Parking Mode? Here is a video that our customer provided us that shows a real life example of how the Parking Mode can save you money and keep you safe! This is what he have had to say: "This happened to my vehicle while I was out for lunch. Because of this video, I saved $300 in deductibles and the Lexus driver was 100% at fault. I was using BlackVue DR550GW-2CH WiFi at the moment."

This next video catches a vandalist at the scene of the crime! Here is what our customer had to say: "My Mercedes kept getting keyed at his apartment complex. I decided to buy 2 dash cameras [and] a dedicated car battery to feed these dashcams with power for 24/7. I was able to catch this individual. It was the strata manager who was getting agitated at how residents were parking at visitor spot."
