A Roadside Unit for AutoSpeedWatch.  The Roadside Unit is fully self-contained, requiring no electrical power supply - simply fix to a pole with the fixing band provided.   Use one of these units at each of the locations you want to monitor in your Community Speedwatch scheme.  Each unit is simple to install and sends data over the internet about offenders at that location. 


  • Solar powered; no electrical works needed
  • Easy self installation
  • Effective deterrent at very low capital and operating cost
  • Works automatically during daylight hours
  • Inconspicuous and lightweight. Conspicuity option.
  • For monitoring single lane
  • No physical data retrieval access needed; see results on your My AutoSpeedWatch account
  • Includes medium sized high security fixing band, fixing tool,  and 12 months data plan

There is an optional version (V2) of the roadside unit with additional features:

  • Tamper alarm and messaging service
  • A GPS for locating if moved
  • Improved battery capacity and energy management
  • LTE connectivity for faster uploads

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 detail.  The very presence of the system 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.

Installation is simple and quick.  This AutoSpeedWatch Roadside unit is designed for mounting on a sturdy vertical roadside pole of at least 76mm 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 fixing suitable for poles of diameter 76mm-120mm, but other fixings are available in our accessories category.  As with all public facing cameras you'll need to adhere to the BSCC 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).     Most forces understand the benefits the system brings and will support you.  You do not require their approval, however we suggest you check what response can be expected before purchasing.  You will however need Highways approval to install on the highway (but not on private land).

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 usually just a case of keeping the unit clean!  Autospeedwatch Limited and it's use of the system has been certified compliant with the guidelines and the BSCC codes of practice.
