What our clients say

James Sherratt

Fleet Manager, MSL Vehicle Solutions

I decided to transfer our fleet over to CB and it's one of the best decisions I have ever made. Their team are superb to deal with, in the current climate with vehicle utilisation being so high I was apprehensive about the task of getting everything switched over, but the team have made this as easy and flexible as possible. The technology they offer is far superior to our previous provider. If you are considering changing your provider, I would certainly recommend speaking to the team at Crystal Ball.

Charlotte Herrett

Fleet Manager, Chesterfield Borough Council

With a fleet of 196 our previous systems did not provide enough information for what we needed. The system has much out performed anything we have had previously. Dash cams, Driver ID and Electronic vehicle checks have enhanced Fleet KPI'S. Control over driver behaviours has reduced wear and tear on vehicles and speeding issues. We now have safer driving, less public complaints and fewer accidents.

Simon Catley

Delivery Service Manager, Croydon Council

We have used the tracker system for 2 years now, recently we upgraded to the latest dual dash camera's, this will allow us to protect our staff and fleet, over the past 2 years I have found that the team have supported our service with their knowledge of the system and are always willing to help when called upon, we have always received an excellent service and would highly recommend other Fleet Managers to purchase the Crystal Ball System.

SmartCam FAQs

  • Why use a dash cam?

    More than just fancy accessories, dash cams are essential for monitoring your fleet, enhancing road safety, reducing liability, and saving costs. For a full overview of the benefits of installing a camera system in your cars, HGVs, trucks, or vans, check out our guide to the 5 reasons to install an integrated vehicle tracking 4G dash cam.

  • Are incidents automatically recorded?

    Yes, with Crystal ball’s Smart 4G truck, HGV and van dash cam the integrated accelerometer will detect significant changes in G-force to generate video events. Such events are categorised into Medium or High Severity, dependent on the level of G-force detected. SmartCam customers can also review all footage captured on their business dash cams from the internal SD card outside of automated events.

  • Does SmartCam also track the vehicle?

    Yes, SmartCam integrates Crystal Ball’s FleetTracker solution, a powerful GPS fleet tracking system used by thousands of SMEs and local governments in the UK today. You can log in to our web-based admin portal and view the locations of your vehicles on our mapping interface, play back journeys, set up alarms and alerts on the dashboard, and download historical journey or event reports, amongst other powerful functionalities.

  • Are incidents automatically recorded?

    Yes, with Crystal ball’s Smart 4G truck, HGV, car, and van dash cam the integrated accelerometer will detect significant changes in G-force to generate video events. Such events are categorised into Medium or High Severity, dependent on the level of G-force detected. SmartCam customers can also review all footage captured on their business dash cams from the internal SD card outside of automated events.

  • Can videos be viewed in real time?

    Yes, videos are sent to the Crystal Ball system over the mobile network and viewable within the admin portal and Manager App in real time. This makes Crystal Ball’s SmartCam stand out from most commercial dash cams available today, which do not support mobile connectivity and only record videos to the SD card on the device. This means that in the unfortunate event of a RTA, fleet managers are able to respond in the appropriate way instantly. 

  • Can a dash cam make my fleet more secure?

    While SmartCam is not designed to be used for surveillance when the vehicle is parked, dash cams can certainly help with vehicle security. In fact, the dash cam can serve as a valuable security tool for the vans, cars, HGVs, and trucks in your fleet. The presence of a visible camera can act as a deterrent to potential thieves or vandals, even while the vehicle is parked and the camera is not recording.

  • Can Crystal Ball help my fleet with DVS compliance?

    Yes, Crystal Ball can help your fleet meet the Safe System requirements to comply with the Direct Vision Standard (DVS) for HGVs in London. This includes installing a camera monitoring system, sensor systems, pictorial warning signage on the rear of the vehicle, side under-run protection, mirrors, and audible warnings when the vehicle is manoeuvring or reversing. To find out more about compliance with the DVS and safety permit scheme, visit our Direct Vision Standard London page.

  • Are SmartCam and FleetTracker part of the same system?

    Yes, Crystal Ball has created a single integrated system that covers everything you need to effectively manage your fleet of cars, trucks, HGVs, vans, motorcycles, and more. This system includes the dash cam with optional driver-facing camera system, GPS vehicle tracking, Manager App, and much more to help you manage your fleet more efficiently.

  • Does the dash cam require Wi-Fi to upload recorded footage?

    No, our fleet camera systems are 4G enabled and upload full HD incident footage directly to the cloud without any need for Wi-Fi.
