This AutoSpeedWatch Roadside unit is designed for mounting on a sturdy vertical roadside pole of at least 75mm diameter and is mounted such that it takes a picture of the rear of a passing speeding vehicle. Each unit comes complete with a high-security pole fixing suitable for poles of diameter 75mm-120mm, but other fixings are available in our accessories category. No need to return to the unit for data retrieval; just access over the internet using your inclusive My AutoSpeedWatch dashboard, which is set up after installation. The local Community Speedwatch coordinator can then invite members of the local community to be involved in verifying and using the data collected.
Please see About AutoSpeedWatch for more on how the AutoSpeedWatch system operates and how it assists Community Speedwatch teams and the police by helping identify vehicles that tend to persistently speed, and those that are particularly fast. The very presence of the system also works as a deterrent and modifies driver behaviours. Statistics are also available from the unit but, if you want anonymous traffic survey data you may get better results with a dedicated traffic logging device. Most forces understand the benefits the system brings and are keen to use it to help save lives.... however, please check with your force before purchasing.
Installation is simple and quick. As with all public facing cameras you'll need to adhere to the SCC guidelines and we advise you to use special signs to assist doing so; it's not onerous and we even provide draft Privacy Impact Assessment and Camera Policy to assist you (when your order is complete go to "My Account" > "My Orders" > "Downloads" to retrieve). Autospeedwatch Limited and it's use of the system has been certified compliant with the guidelines and the SCC codes of practice.
The first year (from date of purchase) of data connectivity is included. 2nd and subsequent years will require a data plan to maintain connectivity and access to the system; this being the only on-going cost; there are no other subscription-type costs, and maintenance is simply a case of keeping the unit clean!
