BlackVue Cloud How to Use Live Auto-Upload
Live Auto-Upload, new feature currently in beta, was added to the DR750S Series (with firmware 1.004 and up) and DR650S Series (firmware 1.011 and up) dashcams.
Let’s see what it is about.
When an Event is created (impact detected or Manually triggered), Live Auto-Upload lets your Cloud-compatible BlackVue save a live video stream from a camera of your choice (front or rear/interior) to the Cloud server.
What BlackVue Over the Cloud already does
With BlackVue Over the Cloud, you can already receive Push Notifications on your phone when an impact on your parked vehicle is detected by your dashcam. You can even check right away what is going on around your car from the point of view of your front or rear camera with Remote Live View as seen in this video:
Why add Live Auto-Upload?
Depending on the area you live in, you might be more worried about dashcam thieves than about hit-and-runs. Imagine a scenario where a thief steals your dashcam. After breaking into your vehicle, the thief notices the camera and decides to take it to eliminate incriminating evidence. Sure enough, you might have received a notification when the gravity sensor of the BlackVue detected the break-in. You might even have checked the Remote Live View. But what if you didn’t notice the alert message or were yourself far away from your vehicle? What if you would simply rather not confront the thief alone? In most situations, with your dashcam gone, so is the evidence. Nothing to show the police, in case you thought of alerting them.
Enter Live Auto Upload.
Providing evidence in case of theft
With Live Auto-Upload, since the live stream is saved in real time in the Cloud, you could still have incriminating video proof to show the police–especially if you use an interior-facing camera.
Luckily, BlackVue dashcams are often stealthy enough to stay unnoticed by unsuspecting thieves. However, as the general public’s awareness of dashcams grows, this could unfortunately change.
In a way, Live Auto-Upload allows you to stay ahead of the thieves.
