Internet-Connected Dash Camera

Internet-Connected Dash Camera

The CM11 front-facing dash camera automatically uploads high-definition video footage to the Samsara cloud, enabling fleets to improve driver safety, expedite insurance claims, and gain deeper visibility into operations.

List price: $199 plus $500 annual license (all-inclusive license includes maintenance, support, cloud software, and cellular data, if applicable. Volume purchase and multi-year license term discounts available.)

High Definition Video Optimized for Fleets

The CM11 captures clear, smooth, high-definition video footage enabling operators to clearly see events of interest. With high-end 1080p resolution and 30 frame per second (FPS) capture, a wide-angle 130° lens, and low-light performance optimized for night driving, the CM11 offers unprecedented performance in a scalable dash camera system.

Fleet-Wide Visibility from the Samsara Cloud

Paired with the VG-series vehicle gateway, the CM11 automatically uploads video clips and still images to the Samsara Cloud, providing zero-touch, centralized visibility into footage from an entire fleet. The CM11's cellular capabilities eliminate the need for manually retrieving memory cards from vehicles or downloading footage from a DVR. Operators can instantly access recent and historical captures from any web browser.

Reduces Accidents and Facilitates Insurance Claims

The CM11 automatically captures and uploads footage immediately before and after a sudden acceleration, braking, cornering, or collision. With video evidence of dangerous driving behavior, operators can proactively coach high-risk drivers, improving safety and lowering operating cost. When accidents do happen, video evidence can exonerate drivers and facilitate insurance claim payments.

Affordable and Easy to Use

With advances in imaging technology, encoding, and wireless data networks, the CM11 brings tremendous quality and features at a fraction of the cost of traditional enterprise-class dash cameras. Moreover, the CM11 is easy to use. With no complex wiring or configuration, the CM11 installs in about ten minutes, and the Samsara Cloud dashboard enables users to access footage without training or IT expertise.
