Thieves don’t like cameras. That’s what Owl is counting on with their new entry into the ever-crowded dashcam market. Owl is an always-on, multipurpose “Car Cam” which records video when you’re driving and protects your car when you’re elsewhere. This small but powerful device leverages a touchscreen, front and rear-facing cameras, a lot more tech, and an LTE connection to monitor your car. Their monthly Owl LTE Service lets it call you, providing live audio/video and 24-hour recording if there’s an activity you should know about. Saying “OK Presto” sends clips to your phone instantly for sharing to your social channels.
Owl retails for $349 and currently requires an iPhone 6 or newer running iOS 11 (or higher). A year of their LTE service is included with some limitations on the number of clips you can upload each month. There’s also a waiting list for any Android users out there. To find out more, head on over to owlcam.com for the details.
