How Integrated Video works
When a camera is installed in a vehicle, Integrated Video connects the camera footage with Reveal. When a harsh driving event occurs, it’s classified by our AI software and you’ll receive an alert. Watch the video to decide what to do next.

The camera is installed in the vehicle
You can use either the Spotlight app or the Integrated Video app to install a camera in a vehicle.
The camera starts recording
Once the engine turns on, the camera starts recording and continues until the engine is turned off.
A harsh driving event occurs
When the vehicle’s tracker detects a harsh driving event, a video recording of the incident is made. Harsh driving events are classified using our AI software. The AI reviews footage based on the driver’s behavior, such as hard acceleration or harsh cornering, and objects near the vehicle such as people, animals, stop signs, or other vehicles.
The AI classifies the event
The AI classifies videos as Critical, Major, Moderate, or Minor to indicate how urgently you should watch them. The classification levels are generated based on a number of factors, including:
- How severely the driver braked, accelerated, cornered, or encountered a sudden force to the vehicle.
- How close other vehicles, people, animals, or objects were.
- The g-force exerted to the front or rear of the vehicle.
Videos are triggered when the driving behavior, such as sudden acceleration or deceleration, creates a g-force to the vehicle detected by the vehicle tracker. This is measured and triggers a video if the g-force goes above certain thresholds.
You receive an alert
You receive an alert notification when videos are available to watch in Reveal.
There are two alert types:
- A harsh driving alert notifies you of harsh driving incidents such as hard acceleration, harsh cornering, and hard braking.
- A video alert notifies you when a video of a harsh driving event is classified as Critical, Major, or Moderate.
Both alerts could be triggered by the same event. You can manage alerts to suit your preferences.
You watch the video
You can access videos in various ways:
- Watch videos in Reveal on your computer.
- Watch videos in Replay on your computer.
- Watch videos in the Integrated Video app.
The video footage is accompanied by:
- An analysis including triggers and detected events.
- The road's speed limit.
- A speed graph that shows the driver's speed before, during, and after the event.
- The time and location of the incident.
- Driver details (if assigned) and vehicle details.
- A video download option.
Find a video
Use the Video List to search for videos triggered by a harsh driving event.
Find a video in Video on Demand
If you can’t find a video in the list, select GET VIDEO to perform a search of the camera’s SD card and request a video. We’ll access the SD card remotely and email you a video link.
If you still can’t find the video you want, consider whether any of the following apply:
- There is a camera error
- The camera may not be recording.
- The camera may have been damaged during a collision.
- A driver may have selected privacy mode to stop sharing camera and GPS tracking data with Reveal.
- The SD card may be corrupted. Contact Support to reformat the SD card or order a new one.
- The SD card may have overwritten the footage. Depending on the card’s capacity, SD cards hold around 22 hours of footage (or ‘driving time’) which is then recorded over as usage continues.
If you suspect a collision has occurred and a video was not triggered in Reveal, download footage from your SD card as soon as possible.
Find a video on the SD card
All footage is available to access on the vehicle’s SD card. Depending on the card’s capacity, SD cards hold around 22 hours of footage (or ‘driving time’) which is then recorded over as usage continues. You can upgrade your SD card to increase its capacity by contacting your Customer Service Manager.
From your SD card, download videos to your device so you can:
- Get videos that you’re unable to access in Video on Demand.
- Share videos with authorized third parties (such as insurance companies).
- Get videos from a broken camera.
Enable Integrated Video
If users cannot see the Video tab, the issue is most likely to do with role permissions.
