What is Dashcam Parking Mode?

Dashcam Parking Mode is a feature designed to safeguard your vehicle while it’s stationary. Whether you’re dropping off your kids at school or leaving your car in a busy parking lot, this mode provides constant surveillance, even when the engine is off.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Motion Detection: Parking Mode dashcams use motion sensors to detect any movement around your vehicle. If someone approaches your car or any unusual activity occurs, the dashcam starts recording automatically.
  2. Impact Detection: Some dashcams are equipped with G-sensors that can detect impacts or collisions. If another vehicle bumps into yours while you’re away, the dashcam will record the incident, potentially capturing important evidence.
  3. Battery Protection: To prevent your car’s battery from draining, Parking Mode dashcams are designed to switch off after a preset amount of time or once the battery voltage reaches a certain level.

Benefits of Parking Mode for School Commutes

    1. Safety and Security:
    • Peace of Mind: With Parking Mode, you can rest easy knowing that your vehicle is under constant surveillance. This added security is especially important when you’re dropping off your kids at school or leaving your car unattended in unfamiliar areas.
    • Evidence in Case of Incidents: In the unfortunate event of a hit-and-run or vandalism, your dashcam footage can serve as crucial evidence for insurance claims or police investigations.
    1. Monitoring Young Drivers:
    • Teenage Drivers: If your teenager is heading back to school with a newly acquired driver’s license, Parking Mode can help you keep an eye on their parking and driving habits. You can check on them by using the Thinkware Connected app
