Standby mode preserves the battery life of the dashcam, and also indicates to fleet administrators when the vehicle is moving, and when it isn't. This ability is useful for tracking and protecting the vehicle and any property that may be inside it. For example, understanding Standby events can identify if the vehicle has been moved when not there.
The dashcam enters standby mode when no movement is detected. You can configure when the vehicle should enter standby. A common setting is ten minutes. The maximum standby setting is sixty minutes after the vehicle stops moving.
When the dashcam is in Standby mode, its LCD screen is turned off. If you want to use the dashcam when in Standby mode, you just need to "wake it up".
The dashcam exits Standby mode and wakes up once you close the door of the vehicle.
