MotorEyes Drive Recorders: The Next Stage of Evolution

MotorEyes Drive Recorders: the Next Stage of Evolution

MotorEyes, a device which films your journey, records your location and speed via GPS, as well as detects impacts on your car using G-sensors is taking the world by storm.

In countries as diverse as Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States, Japan and Australia, drivers are installing MotorEyes type devices and sharing videos of their journey online which include date, time, speed, location, and even a voice recording.

From incredible crashes and beautiful scenery to quick-thinking manoeuvres, these cameras record it all.

Even better, they may help lower your insurance premium.

“In Europe drivers were found to be 10% less likely to have an accident when vehicles were fitted with these devices. If a driver was involved in an accident, the costs of repair were reduced by 25% indicating that with drive recorders fitted the accident was less severe.”

As a result of the evidence, insurance companies in the UK, Australia and the United States are offering lower premiums to those with the cameras installed.

Gareth says that while insurers in New Zealand have yet to offer lower premiums for drivers using the cameras, he believes it is inevitable.

“That would be probably because this technology is so new to New Zealand. With so many insurance companies around the world offering discounted premiums and the number growing, I am sure it won't be long until the likes of our big insurance companies follow suit".
