Owl Launches Security Camera for Cars

| February 2, 2018

Owl Car Cam

Looking for a new way to help protect your fleet against crashes, stops, and break-ins — with a incontrovertible record of what may have taken place in a particular incident?

Check out: Owl Car Cam — which is being billed as “the first LTE-Connected security camera” built to protect and empower drivers with instant video evidence of anything and everything the road throws their way.

Designed by a team of seasoned entrepreneurs hailing from Apple, Microsoft & Dropcam, the Owl Car Cam brings 24/7, easy-to-use security to the car to capture crashes, break-ins, dents, and traffic stops. Owl was founded on the idea that video, sensors, and intelligent software can help people deal with real life events that matter.

Here’s how it works: When driving, dual-facing cameras protect Owl users, capturing what happens on the road, both inside and outside of the car. When parked, Owl secures the vehicle with sensors that automatically alert the driver via the Owl Cam app. The app lets you see and use HD video evidence of everything from break-ins to mystery parking lot dings. You alone control the video with the Owl app on your phone. The app is built to make sharing video easy in seconds.

“Cars need video security – badly. No matter how you look at it, whether in terms of dollars or physical damage or emotional harm caused, the car is a place where a lot happens. We built the Owl Car Cam to help people feel safer with a device that’s super easy to install and use everyday,” said Andy Hodge, Owl CEO and Founder.

The Owl Car Cam is always connected to power and utilizes a LTE connection to access up to 24 hours of high definition video and alerts. The camera automatically detects the important safety events that occur in and around the car and provides instant video clip reports. This system protects and helps people in 5 situations:

  • Crashes: Crashes and close calls are captured and ready for you to review 24-hours a day on your phone to save and share so you avoid unfair blame.
  • Dings/dents: On-board sensors automatically detect events while you’re away from your car, and send alerts to your phone. The Owl Cam App will display what happened, and let you see what’s happening right now in your car via a live feed. This all lets you save and share the video of “that other car.”
  • Traffic stops: Owl is running when you are pulled over to keep everyone on their best behavior and to make sure you have what you need to tell your side of the story.
  • Break-ins: If someone other than you gets in your car, Owl knows and alerts you. Owl pairs with your iPhone, and senses when you and your phone approach your car. If it’s someone else and they break in or get into your car, Owl’s LED floodlights will turn on to scare them off. Owl also sends you an alert via the Owl Cam App with video day or night, so you can watch a live feed of what’s going on in your car and even use the intercom to say, “Get out of my car dude.”

About Owl: Owl is led by Andy Hodge, a veteran leader of iPod, iPhone, HoloLens and Dropcam, along with an experienced team of engineers and entrepreneurs.

Owl is based in Palo Alto, CA.
