Target Blu Eye
GET A REAL-TIME WARNING FOR APPROACHING EMERGENCY VEHICLES
WARNS YOU OF APPROACHING EMERGENCY SERVICES
SUCH AS MARKED AND UNMARKED POLICE CARS, AMBULANCES AND FIRE ENGINES
Target Blu Eye is a unique and worldwide patented traffic safety system that warns you in advance of approaching emergency service vehicles. In the UK all the emergency services use Tetra radios and Target Blu Eye will let you know when they are close come day or night. So whilst driving at night, even if the emergency vehicle is not using their lights or sirens, Target Blue will alert you of their presence up to a kilometre radius.
Target Blu Eye uses both visual and audible warnings to let you know what’s out there. Within seconds of an emergency vehicle being in the radius, the signal will be activated and the signal strength meter in your vehicle will give you enough warning allowing you move safely out of the way.
Target Blu Eye is based on TETRA technology, in the UK it is known as the Airwave Network which is widely used for the communication between different emergency services. Due to this highly advanced technology, Target Blu Eye is able to warn you in advance of approaching emergency services, such as:
>>> POLICE CARS - (MARKED & UNMARKED CARS)
>>> POLICE MOTORCYCLES
>>> FIRE ENGINES
Laser Track Flare Twin Transponder Kit
LaserTrack Flare: based on infrared laser technology
Infrared laser systems with a wavelength (frequency) of 904 nanometres, are used on a worldwide scale for measuring distance and speed, because of their exceptionally narrow beam and high degree of insensitivity for atmospheric circumstances. The advantage of an exceptionally narrow beam, the laser beam, is that an object, for instance a car, can be ‘pointed at’ with great precision at a distance of hundreds of meters. This way, within a fraction of a second, distance and speed can be measured. This is all done entirely invisibly as the infrared beam cannot be identified by the human eye. The best known laser systems are the laser guns used by the police to carry out speed enforcement.
LaserTrack Flare: flawless distinction between different laser systems
The highly sophisticated and ultra-compact LaserTrack Flare is, for reasons of integrity, equipped with the same technology as that which is applied in the police laser guns, offering you, as a user, a great advantage. The system makes a flawless distinction between the signals of its own remote control-transponders, the many laser-safety devices* and alternatively the police laser guns.
Contributing to a comfortable and pleasant way of driving
Opening the gate of your garden or garage door is done fully automatically by LaserTrack Flare. You do not even need to push a button! As soon as your car comes within reach of the garden gate or garage door, the necessary access code is exchanged automatically and the gate or door will swing open. For safety reasons, the system makes use of more than 4 billion codes and up to 50 different vehicles, each with their own code, can be programmed into the system.
En route LaserTrack Flare recognises other road users using laser-safety devices without giving notification. LaserTrack Flare does not interfere with these safety devices. Whether or not the speed readings of police laser guns are detected or even prevented, depends on the settings selected by the user.
Laser speed trap detection-mode
This mode is allowed to be used virtually anywhere in the world. Please bear in mind that this mode is not substantially protective. A laser gun needs less than half a second to measure the speed of a vehicle. If LaserTrack Flare alerts you in such a case, there is no time left to correct your speed. An audible and visual warning on the display indicate that the laser speed trap detection-mode is active.
Laser speed trap protection-mode
This mode is not allowed in most European countries. If the protection mode is activated, it is important to be aware that the protection against the police laser gun is of a temporary nature. This should give you enough time to, if necessary, adjust your speed. An audible and visual warning on the display indicate that the laser speed trap protection-mode is active and, as such, no laser gun speed reading can be performed.
The multifunctional and obviously 100% legal LaserTrack Flare contributes to a comfortable and more relaxed way of driving, due to its compact size, the sleek designed transponders and high-end technology.

Thinkware F800 Pro Dash Cameras
WHY WE NEED A DASH CAM
The roads are never as safe as you think they are. In 2010, there were over 5 million traffic collisions. In your daily commute, there may be a chance of you being involved in a motor vehicle accident. Situations like these are often extremely stressful, and it is often difficult for drivers to recall the crucial details surrounding the incident. With a Dash Cam, drivers now find themselves having a reliable witness – protecting themselves from bearing the cost of liability. With an in-car dashboard camera, you can feel at ease knowing that there is always a dependable, silent witness with you at all times.
WHAT IS A DASH CAM?
An Extra Eye on the Road.
A dashboard camera (Dash Cam) is a specialized on-board surveillance camera that is designed to monitor and record driving incidents. Mounted to the windshield, the camera turns on automatically upon starting ignition, and actively records video footages with an auto-looping mechanism. It has real-time impact detection, whereupon sensing impact, the camera stores the incident footage in a secure location for later reviewing purposes. The footage can then be used as a form of supplementary evidence for insurance purposes, while protecting the driver against insurance frauds and hit-and-runs.
FRONT AND REAR VIEW FULL HD RECORDINGS
CMOS Image Sensors allow constant front and rearview Full 1080p HD resolution recording during both daytime and nighttime along with a 140-degree wide angle lens view. This will minimize blind spots to assure recording of all events without fail.
SUPER NIGHT VISION 2.0
DASH CAM videos recorded in a low-light environment, such as dark alleys or parking lots, may not be clearly identifiable. SUPER NIGHT VISION2.0 in the F800 PRO uses Image Signal Processing (ISP) technology to record a clear, visible video in any situation- while driving or parked.
Perfect image processing even in low-light environments
The Sony Exmor R STARVIS Image Sensor applied to the F800 PRO provides rich colors and the optimal resolution. STARVIS technology improves Exmor R's low light sensitivity by providing optimal image quality in visible ray and near-infrared range, allowing clear imaging in low light environments.
ENERGY SAVING PARKING RECORDING
Energy saving parking recording will reduce power consumption by 1/3 less and gives 3x longer video recording than normal parking mode. When you are away for a vacation or leaving your car for quite some time, energy saving parking recording is a recommended solution. When in use, F800 PRO will go to sleep and soon after an impact has been detection by built-in G-senor, F800 PRO will wake up within a second and start recording for next 20 seconds of period.
Important clips and images may get deleted due to insufficient memory space during long continuous recordings, especially in standard parking recording mode which requires large memory for saving 15 to 30 frames per second. TIME LAPSE MODE in the F800 PRO records 2 frame per second reducing the size of the video file. This allows video recordings in parking mode to continue up to 16 times longer than other dash cams.
Geo Fencing allow drivers to stay alert of vehicle location. Whether your vehicle goes in/out side of a certain radical area, F800 PRO will send you push notification through mobile app, THINKWARE CLOUD. This is more practical for the parents, rental companies, and for fleet management. The radius can be set by typing the address or by using pin point on the mobile app. You may set 20 different radical area with the size from 100m up to 600km.
Locate Vehicle will help drivers to find the vehicle’s current location. F800 PRO will update its current location in every 10 seconds. Then it will display current location with speed and the heading direction integrated on google map.
DRIVING IMPACT NOTIFICATION
In the event of a crash, the alert feature can help the driver to notify others of an emergency situation when the driver is not in the condition to do so. The family or the owner of the car can then remotely check on the situation from their location.
When the car experiences an impact with a g-force level greater than 3g or 4g while driving, the dash cam will automatically send a push notification alert of the impact to the user’s smartphone logged in to the THINKWARE CLOUD app. A 20 seconds video of the incident (10 seconds before and after the incident) is also saved on the THINKWARE CLOUD server, and a push notification alert of the video is sent to the user, which can be checked later and downloaded from the app.
SAFETY CAMERA ALERT
The THINKWARE DASH CAM F800 PRO’s internal GPS provides accurate location information while the Safety Camera Alert function is on continuous alert to warn the driver of red lights and traffic enforcement cameras. Cultivate safe driving habits with THINKWARE DASH CAM.
Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)
Drowsy or distracted driving greatly increases the chance of an accident on the road. The Lane Departure Warning System will alert the driver when the vehicle goes off lane in a speed over 50 km/h.
High Speed / Urban Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS/ uFCWS)
Accidents can be avoided by maintaining a safe following distance. Road Safety Warning System in the F800 PRO calculates the real-time distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you, while driving above 30 km/h in expressways or under 30 km/h in a busy city, and issues a 3-level early warning to the driver depending on the danger of collision.
STATE OF THE ART VIDEO ENHANCEMENT TECHNOLOGY
THINKWARE DASH CAMs are equipped with top-notch video enhancement technology on the market, ensuring the most vivid video recordings under any circumstance. When you are driving under bright sunlight, coming out of a tunnel, or getting under the shadow of a tall building etc, a sudden change in frontal light exposure levels can result in excessively bright or dark recordings. The WDR function eliminates excessively bright spots on the recording to correct its color balance in order to ensure a clear image.
