PureGear PureCam Improves Vehicle Security

PureGear, a company known for its phone accessories and car chargers, has announced its PureCam, a dashboard camera that utilizes 4G LTE. The camera is both front and back facing, allowing users to record videos of potential thefts as well as accidents. All emergency video is automatically updated to the cloud and sent to three emergency contacts, while the user can always livestream video from their PureCam app.

Unlike most dash cams, the PureCam uses both 4G LTE and Wi-Fi with a hotspot, enabling footage to be uploaded to the cloud even if the camera is stolen. With a 16 GB micro-SD card included, users can save about five hours of footage from both their internal and external cameras. If the user wants more storage, they can upgrade to a 32 GB micro-SD card.

The PureCam also has built-in GPS, allowing users to locate their vehicles through the PureCam app, plus parking surveillance recording. In the event of a break-in or hit-and-run, the PureCam will automatically record and upload footage to your local and cloud storage.

“At PureGear, we design solutions that help protect and enrich active lifestyles—whether that be screen protection for mobile phones or a security camera for your car…With the PureGear PureCam in their vehicles, people can feel safer and more secure, whether they or a loved one is driving,”

said Mike Cavanah, PureGear’s president. The PureCam is currently available on PureGear’s website as of January 7th, 2019.

As smart security systems have grown in popularity, so has the demand for car security in particular. Wholesale shipments of dash cams in the U.S in 2018 reached 285,000, a 20% increase from 2017, according to the Consumer Technology Association. In concurrence, car theft went up by 6.6% from 2015 to 2016 and by 4.1 percent by the first half of 2017, according to the Insurance Information Institute. As connected devices become more common, the car security industry is expected to grow exponentially in the next few years.
