Vehicle Safeguard Video Camera Review
Mobile Video Security
by Chuck Arehart
Have you walked out to a parking lot only to discover that someone has bumped into your car without leaving a note? The Vehicle Safeguard Video Camera is like having your own mini surveillance camera for your car. The cell phone-sized camera easily mounts to a base that sits atop the dashboard and can record up to five hours of video when a 2-gigabyte memory card is used. The unit is powered by three triple-A batteries or the vehicle's power plug with a supplied adapter. The camera can be used while driving to record a favorite route or during a daily commute for documentation in case of an accident. The device does not record sound and would benefit from a wider field of view. A video cable is included but a USB cord would be useful for transferring video straight to a computer. The same LED indicates the power and record functions, so it's hard to be sure if the unit is recording. The mini video-cam would benefit from a few design improvements, but is a handy item to have on board.
