Teslacam vs Dashcam - installed - 2K HEVC & Data Recovery

Teslacam vs dashcam

The built in cameras on the Tesla are good, but the main front & rear camera fall short in comparison to Manufacturers like GNET Systems. This is in many ways with the most obvious being recording quality, resolution, field of view and also hardly any impact to the Tesla battery.

The very latest in quality & data video recording technology, a 2K GNET G-ON Dashcam was installed into this Tesla Model S, complimenting the existing built in cameras.

Being an existing customer from nearly 3 years back originally having 1080p Goluk cameras, he has now utilised the 2 Goluk cameras by having them installed into his wife and daughters vehicles. One of the cameras needed an internal backup battery replacing which we completed whilst installing.

The G-ON 2 2K dashcam provides excellent parking mode recording, recording a H.265 encoded video in 2K true HDR quality whilst driving and in order to extend the recording capacity, this automatically changes to 1fps whilst parking.

Should the motion detection be triggered by a car driving past or a person walking by then the camera automatically increases to 15fps whilst parked.

If an impact is detected then video is captured seperately.

The cameras have a LBP mode (Low Battery Protection) that is built into the camera so no extra power magic devices or additional costs required here. This means the camera can be powered 24/7 and automatically power off should your vehicle 12 volt battery get to a low state of charge. In the Tesla Model S, this camera is powered 24/7 with next to no impact to the main lithium battery pack, a stark contrast if you activate sentry mode for the built in TeslaCams with this having a BIG impact to your Tesla miles/range. Reason being - The Tesla computer is a powerful beast and requires lots of energy when its turned on, which is a shame that the built in cameras have such a low resolution (480p/720p) and on some cameras a poor field of view (the front has a very narrow field of view that may be a detriment should vandalism occur at certain points around the car.

WithCloud - live cloud upload and recording

Withcloud is included with this camera, should you wish to use the great cloud function then all you would need is a mifi hotspot or a usb LTE dongle (coming soon) and a data plan.

You can also use your smart phone as a shared data connection whilst you are driving in your car but if you want 24/7 monitoring and live view then a separate mifi unit is recommended.

There are settings to add 3 x wifi hotspots to the camera so you can even add your home wifi if you car is close enough. This will allow you to use the cameras over the internet and view footage at a lower resolution.

Dashcam Live Streaming, Live GPS tracking, Statistics

For full hd downloading of video, a mobile app (both IOS and ANDROID) allows access and fast download of video when required.
