Philips has recently received a Recommended Award in the Auto Express Dash Cams product group test in May.
Automatic Dash Recorders “Dash Cams” are enjoying huge growth, with over 2.6 million on the road today. Drivers can not only receive insurance discounts, they can also send footage of illegal driving to the police.
Auto Express tested eight cameras, looking for clarity of footage and the level of detail captured, such as number plates, street signs and pedestrian movements in a variety of light conditions. In addition, each device was rated for ease of use, looking at how straightforward it was to change settings and whether they were easy to install. Price was the final factor taken into account.
Auto Express reported: “Philips’ ADR820 is cheaper than many rivals, but video quality is still great. The Super HD footage from the 140- degree lens picked out similar detail to out 1440p cams. Also, the F1.8 aperture wasgood in low light and the CMOS sensor adjusted exposure well as light changed. The verdict is the Philips ADR820 impresses with its great-value price tag and good-quality recordings.”
The Philips GoSure ADR820 is packed with useful features including, 140° super wide recording angle, Sony image sensor and F1.8 lens, collision detecting G-sensor, WIFI via the Philips GoSure App, driver fatigue alert warning, automatic recording and a 2.7” built in LCD screen.
Richard Armstrong from Lumileds, who are the global licensees of Philips Automotive Lighting products said: “We are delighted to receive a coveted Recommended Award and an excellent 4 star rating from Auto Express for the ADR820. The Philips Go Sure ADR820 is armed with a powerful front camera, and there is also anoptional rear camera and GPS tracking. Drivers can easily prove what really happened bringing more transparency and acting as a reliable witness on the road.”
“We all hope our journeys are safe and incident free. But in the case of an accident, gathering accurate evidence is vital. For many, the post-accident experience is one of the most stressful elements of car ownership and it benefits everyone to make it as simple and stress free as well as to limit unnecessary claims disputes.”
