Camera Privacy - Driver Facing Cameras
With the CM22, Samsara brings the ability to monitor both what is happening in front of the vehicle and inside the cab. With this driver facing camera also presents some questions about how the driver facing camera works and the privacy around footage captured from it.
Who has access to the footage?
Only full admins or read-only admins with Dash Cam authorization can access or retrieve footage. Footage can be downloaded and shared with police or insurance companies as evidence, at the company’s discretion.
When can the driver facing footage be seen?
There are two ways to see the driver facing camera
- Harsh events
- Video requests
When a harsh event happens, the camera record the 10 seconds before and after the harsh event happens and automatically starts uploading to the cloud once the vehicle trip has concluded.
If a standard video request is made with a CM22, the cloud will receive up to a minute-long video that includes both the inward and outward facing camera. Only the past 40 hours of driving time is available for a video request.
Is there a live stream of the front facing or driver facing camera?
Samsara cameras do not provide the ability for a live stream view.
