What makes our Smart 4G Dash Cam so smart? It’s an Android device, ensuring that your equipment is future-proofed and integrates with Crystal Ball’s app seamlessly.
SmartCam is our commercial 4G dash cam system that provides HD video recording quality. Dash Cam event footage is sent to the cloud in real time. It also supports remote footage download on demand.
SmartCam measures five driver behaviour KPIs: speeding, acceleration, cornering, braking, and idling to calculate a driver score. The system creates driver reports and league tables for easy analysis.
SmartCam fully integrates Crystal Ball’s FleetTracker, a GPS vehicle tracking system for cars, vans, HGVs, trucks, and motorcycles. FleetTracker is trusted by thousands of SMEs and local governments in the UK today.
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.
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.
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.
More than just fancy accessories, dash cams are essential for monitoring your fleet, enhancing road safety, reducing liability, and saving costs.

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.
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. Thinking that their actions are being recorded by a security camera and can be used as evidence may discourage them from targeting any vehicle with camera systems.
