This dashcam protects your car around the clock

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.

      1. I can’t recommend this device. There is no way to turn it off short of unplugging it from the OBDII connector and then it losses it’s LTE connection and takes forever to re-establish. Also, there is no way to turn off the display. You can turn the brightness down to nearly being obscure but then when you start the car the next time the settings reset to out of the box. Also – I’ve yet to be able to see the 24 hours of recorded video unless I’m connected to the device’s wifi. It also supposedly sent me a notification – haven’t seen it on my phone.

        In short – it needs a firmware update and some other tweaks before I trust it completely.
