What is the G-Sensor function on a dashcam?
Today, the majority of dashcams carry the G-Sensor function. However, many customers ask us what this means and implies. What is G-Sensor? How does it work? We answer all your questions below in our article.
What does the G-Sensor function mean on your vehicle's on-board camera?
On one on-board cameraThe G-Sensor function defines itself as a gravity induction process. It's a sensor in the form of an accelerometer. She presents herself with a chip placed in your dashcam to activate the G-Sensor function. This first is capable of detect a sudden change in speed or direction. This action will result in an automatic recording (usually the video starts recorded 30 seconds before the shock detection) that will be locked on the device.
How do I activate the G-Sensor function on your vehicle's on-board camera?
To activate the G-Sensor function your dashcam, all you have to do is go to your device's settings. From that moment on, As soon as your on-board camera detects a sudden movement or a change in speed and direction, the recording will start automatically.
This is the case in a sudden accident where there is a sudden jolt or change in speed and direction. The G-Sensor sensor then activates and a locked record starts. If your storage memory is full, the video will crush the old ones. This type of recording is called "impact storage." The G-Sensor protection system will ensure that only you can remove it.
Specifically When there is an accident, the sensor emits a value based on the power of the impact. There are three options: low, medium and high. Don't forget, however, that the more your dashcam will be sensitive, the more it will tend to activate for nothing and fill the storage memory. Generally, the G-Sensor function deactivates 3 minutes after there is no movement in its field of view.
