What is a hard-wired dash cam?

A hard-wired dash cam is a vehicle camera system professionally installed and directly connected to the vehicle's electrical system. By doing so, it provides continuous power supply, reliable operation, and seamless integration with other vehicle systems. These positive points make it an ideal dash cam solution for companies operating with commercial fleets.

Benefits of a hard-wired dash cam

Continuous power supply

Hard-wired dash cams are directly connected to the vehicle's electrical system. Because of this, they remain powered at all times – no batteries needed.

Professional installation

Professional installation guarantees optimal camera placement and integration. The result is maximised coverage and functionality while avoiding potential installation errors.

Greater level of reliability

Due to a stable power connection and secure installation, hard-wired dash cams achieve a high level of reliability. Installation in this way reduces the risk of disconnections.

Integration of advanced features

Hard-wired systems can incorporate advanced features like GPS tracking, AI technology, and real-time alerts, providing comprehensive solutions for fleet management.

Theft deterrence

Visible, professional installed dash cams act as a deterrent against theft and vandalism. They offer additional security for your fleet.

Comply with regulations

Hard-wired dash cams support your efforts to meet regulatory requirements. These cameras provide consistent, reliable footage and data collection – essential for compliance in many industries.

Types of hard-wired dash cams


Forward-facing dash cams capture footage, as you'd expect from the name, of the road ahead. This supplies clear evidence of incidents and helps improve driver behaviour.


Dual-facing dash cams record both the road ahead and the driver. This offers comprehensive monitoring for both safety and incident analysis.

Multi-camera system

Multi-camera systems include front, side, and rear cameras. This achieves a 360-degree view around the vehicle, which maximises safety and situational awareness via dash cams.
