Samsara has released Camera Connector, a new product that connects side, rear, and interior vehicle camera feeds to Samsara’s Connected Operations Cloud. By bringing cloud connectivity to third-party cameras for the first time, Samsara says Camera Connector allows organizations to leverage existing vehicle camera investments to reduce safety incidents, protect against not-at-fault claims and enhance the driver experience. While some fleets may have camera systems with in-cab monitors to help drivers eliminate blind spots, these systems commonly use on-premise, local memory-based storage without cloud connectivity or don’t record footage at all, Samsara says.
Samsara’s Camera Connector addresses these challenges by bringing side, rear, and interior camera feeds into a single view within the Connected Operations Cloud. When combined with Samsara’s AI Dash Cams, customers gain 360° visibility of safety incidents in a single dashboard.
In addition to providing on-demand video evidence, Camera Connector integrates third-party camera feeds into Samsara’s video-based workflows for coaching and safety insights. Without the need to rip and replace existing camera systems, customers using Camera Connector can also experience efficiency gains when it comes to installation.
Samsara’s Camera Connector is now generally available to all Samsara customers.
