Cab CCTV Security

Most taxi drivers face a very real threat of armed robbery or at the very least an annoying incident of fare evasion by anti-social elements of the society. Taxi drivers have to roam the streets at unsafe times and welcome passengers with unknown backgrounds and motives. As unarmed servicemen of the public, taxi drivers are indeed in grave dangers themselves, especially around the weekends, holidays and during nighttime.

Nights are an especially hazardous time of the day. Despite fearsome thieves and other mischief mongers, taxi drivers are also often targeted by drunken passengers. Only the Revosys Interactive V5 Terminal holds the power to put the driver’s mind at ease. It acts not only as a crime prevention tool, but also a proof in case something does happen.

The RevosysTaxi Interactive V5 Tablet comes equipped with a GPS enabled CCTV surveillance camera feature relaying a live video feed to the law enforcement agencies. Two high definition cameras are dedicated to preventing any wrongdoing. The video feed can be transmitted reliably over 3G, 4G or CDMA networks.

Taxi Cab Security

With a rise in crime all over the nation, taxicab owner and fleet managers are taking an initiative in adopting taxi security systems to help them cope with the growing threats.

An industry game-changer, the Revosys V5 Interactive Taxi Tablet is a reliable, robust and powerful device that can record video from as many as two high resolution Taxi CCTV cameras, and their footage can be downloaded remotely as well as streamed in real-time by local crime-enforcement authorities.

Taxicab drivers often feel threatened as a virtue of their job description, especially if they have to operate in and travel to areas with a known history of violence and crimes. The number of reported cases of theft in taxicabs is also rising, which is another major concern for taxicab drivers. Last but not least, drunken passengers are an automatic risk, and taxicabs often have to transport these passengers after a rough night.

Advantages of Taxi Security cameras:

  • They protect drivers and passengers – Taxi drivers are in a vulnerable position due to the trust they put in their passengers, the hours they work around and the places they have to travel to. Taxi security cameras can help put the unruly passengers back in line.
  • They prevent violence – Taxicab drivers cannot, for certain, know anything more about the passengers they’re going to be taking along apart from their required destination. They also have to deal with drunken passengers on a regular basis. Hence, assault cases on taxicab drivers are on the rise. In-cab Taxi Security cameras will make a passenger with criminal intentions think twice before trying anything illegal.
  • They prevent robberies – Knowing that the passenger’s actions are being monitored will prevent a potential robber from accomplishing their goals.
  • They help train and monitor cab drivers – Taxi drivers can conduct themselves in a poor manner, just as passengers. Taxi CCTV cab security systems assure the passengers that their driver is being monitored and must have been put through stringent training requirements, and can be relied upon to act professional.
  • They provide visual evidence in cases of violence, theft, terrorism and fare evasion. Merely publicizing the fact that the taxicab is fitted with Taxi CCTV systems helps deter the aforementioned crimes.

Before installing a taxi security system, make sure the system can handle rough conditions, low and dark environments, and can provide a practical benefit. The best way to this is rely upon an automatic and integrated system such as the Revosys V5 Interactive Taxi Tablet, which can transmit Taxi CCTV footage over secure 3G/4G LTE networks to the appropriate law enforcement agencies. This system offers peace of mind for the drivers, their passengers, law enforcement agencies and fleet managers.

Taxi CCTV Security Systems

Taxi CCTV cab security came to light globally after the recent announcement by the Oxford City Council that it will make it mandatory for all taxicabs to carry such device by the end of March 2015. Hence, starting April 2012, the global demand for and usage of Taxi CCTV cameras will raise many-fold. Such taxi CCTV systems will normally turn-on upon ignition, and stay on for a period of time after the car is turned off. The CCTV footage must be kept confidential & inaccessible, unless required by law enforcement agencies. Some high-end devices such as the Revosys V5 Interactive Taxi Tablet will allow secure remote access and instantaneous live feed of the Taxi CCTV’s footage to law enforcement agencies or the Taxi administration office and the local Taxi Hackney (Taxi Police).

The main purpose behind Taxi CCTV cameras is for protection of the driver and passengers, preventing violence and providing evidence in cases of fare evasion and severe misconduct. In the wake of growing assaults on taxi drivers, a device that can give law enforcement immediate access to live footage of the cab is a must-have. There have been many cases in the past years where taxicabs were stolen, drivers beaten to unconsciousness, cabs vandalized and even complaints filed against the cab drivers themselves. Taxi CCTV cab security will ensure the safety and comfort of all those that are being watched. In the event that a crime does occur, the system plays a critical role in notifying in real-time the authorities, and assisting them with GPS location information of the taxi cab.

Taxi cab security systems are gaining world-wide acceptance, despite some resistance from civil rights groups, the advantages of a CCTV camera far outweigh the criticisms of privacy invasion. There is no potential for abuse since a taxicab is not private property per se, it is the back of a public transport vehicle with a driver in the front seat, who can already hear and see all actions that go on in the back seat.

Apart from the apparent security benefits, Taxi CCTV’s also help:

  • Lower insurance rates by limiting fraudulent accident disputes
  • Safeguard the drivers and their assets against unruly passengers
  • Log vehicle information and act as a black box in relevant cases
  • Manage drivers if they work as a part of a fleet. Some companies even use these as a feedback system during their driver training programs.

The Revosys V5 Interactive Taxi Tablet is an easy to operate, cost effective and readily transferable system. The system is easy to install and detach and is essentially about the size of a small tablet.

Please visit the Revosys website to understand more about this growing technology and discuss your security requirements with us. We have a wide range of packages to cater to most of your taxicab security, payment, entertainment and advertisement needs.

Taxi Card Processing

Taxi Card Processing is a highly demanded feature that taxicab passengers expect to see in today’s taxi fleets. Taxicab fares are steadily increasing and passengers are not always carrying sufficient cash to pay the taxi fare, especially after a shopping spree, or a night out on the town. The world is moving towards what we call “plastic money”, and it makes sense for taxicabs to follow suit with their Taxi Card Processing systems.

For taxi drivers, collecting payments on the road is not an easy task. Cashless passengers and complex tracking systems can make the whole business a displeasure for the passenger and ultimately for the driver, leading to customer dissatisfaction with the taxi cab company and a lesser tip for the driver (if any at all). Taxicab drivers and fleet owners find that a Taxi Card Processing system makes their business run more efficiently. It is a system that effectively pays for itself by providing all sorts of monitory benefits to the taxi fleet owner and cab driver. Some of the added benefits include increased tips for the taxicab driver, customer retention, increased revenue through advertisements and lower accounting and reconciliation costs.

Revosys’ V5 Interactive Terminal is a highly equipped, state-of-the-art, robust, ‘chip and pin’, contactless, and magnetic stripe Taxi Card Processing system. Its 3G/4G LTE wireless system ensures quick transfer of funds and tips to the cab driver’s bank account.

The taxi tablet is fully compliant with PCI as well as EMV and can process all major cards such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Europay. Its financial tools make accounting and reconciliation an easy, seamless task. Drivers have the option of automating the reconciliation activity between their general ledger and the merchant account and reduce administrative costs and time. Unlike taxi payment systems in the market, the V5 taxi tablet one is easy to install, user-friendly, offers End-to-End Secure Transactions, offers engaging advertising content, taxi CCTV security features and economically priced. The button-less entry eliminates the need for bulky PIN pads and decreases fare evasion by providing security features.

Taxi Security and Taxicab Crime Prevention

In recent years, statistics show a growing trend in the number of taxicab crimes throughout the world. Taxicab drivers carry a lot of spare cash and often drive to remote locations in the dead of the night. This makes them an easy and prized target for taxicab burglars and other petty criminals. In some extreme cases, the taxicab driver has been reported to have been kidnapped and forced to take part in criminal activities. The nature of the taxicab drivers’ environment can often make them an easy target.

Local authorities are acutely aware of the hazards that taxi drivers face every day, but measures taken to eradicate these issues via the criminal justice system have been largely overshadowed by bulky legislations. What this problem really needs is a grass-root solution. Such legislations may have seen a fall in the number of taxicab crimes, but the problem has not diminished altogether.

As a result most taxicab owners are turning to a new taxicab security system, one that allows them to secure their money, communicate in real time with the law enforcement agencies and even document the passenger’s ride to be used as a security measure or simply as evidence in the event that something goes wrong. These systems carry a taxi CCTV and have a documented history of reducing fare evasion and other illegal activities.

The V5 Taxi Tablet with Taxi CCTV from Revosys is a very popular example of taxicab based security and payment processing systems. Revosys V5 In-Taxi Tablet carries a state-of-the-art surveillance system that is fully automated and customizable to suit the owner’s needs. The taxi CCTV recordings can be accessed remotely using any cellular network such as 3G or LTE and can be reviewed at a remote location, allowing an unparalleled peace of mind. The relevant law enforcement agencies can access the recordings when they want or in the event of an emergency.

The Revosys V5 Taxi Tablet with Taxi Cab Security also allows for a convenient, cashless payment processing system that takes the vulnerable cash out of the driver’s pocket and straight into his bank account by a contact-less payment processing system. Revosys V5 Taxi Interactive Tablet uses end-to-end secure transactions and accepts all EMV (Europay, Mastercard, VISA) and PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant cards. The touchscreen is PCI PTS approved and the V5 Taxi Tablet can even process Contactless Payments via Cell Phones or NFC (Near Field Communication) cards, on top of the standard smart cards such as M/Chip-MasterCArd, JCB, American Express and VISA.The V5 Taxi Tablet Cab Security system processes the normal fare, and it allows the passenger to tip the driver handsomely.

Taxi Tablets for Taxicab Interactive Advertising

Industry officials are excited about the possibilities of taxi interactive digital signage. However, one of the main issues that have always plagued this growing market is an inability to dynamically update the taxi media. There are currently two (2) options on the market: one is to use a taxi headrest that could be updated using a USB drive, which has proven to be a logistical challenge as well as a cost-wasteful, time-consuming method of updating taxi media, or the new method of updating using the wireless 3G network. Optionally, the 3rd method is using taxi WiFi to update advertising and content media when all the cabs are at the taxi stand.

Taxi Headrests:

Typical taxi headrest screens come in two small sizes: a 7″ taxi headrest or an 8″ taxi headrest. Both headrest types typically use a thin touchscreen and the unit may have an integrated speaker. These taxi screens are typically built into within headrests, none of which are approved by car manufacturers or safety regulation agencies like TUV.

These taxi headrests commonly require an SD card, thumbdrive or other removable storage media which contains the updated advertisements. In some of these taxi headrests, an external 3G modem could be used, but it must be connected somewhere underneath the seat.

Such taxi headrests are typically designed without the use of rugged power supplies, rugged electronics or rugged hard drives, and are not safety-approved in various countries.

GPS Location Based Advertising:

Newer technologies like the V5 Taxi tablet provide GPS location based advertising, putting an intelligent twist on taxi interactive advertising. This taxi advertising system is contained within a familiar tablet, and allows the passenger to observe precisely where they are on the GPS map as well as distance to their destinations.The V5 Taxi Tablet uses GPS technology to highlight the advertisements along the route and display relevant content to the passengers. This is one of the innovative new ways that the driver’s route could be followed, while providing the taxi passenger with more than just an interactive experience. The customer is involved in the journey and becomes excited to know more about the new upcoming advertisements and deals relative to their location.

Download Coupons via SMS or Purchase Local Deals:

Unlike traditional taxi headrests, the V5 taxi tablet provides one of the most engaging and effective features for taxi interactive advertising. This advertising method directly engages your prospective customer, exactly when they are really in search of your service. Suppose you have just climbed into the back of a taxi cab and are on your way from the airport. You may be new to the area, and have some time grab a meal or a drink before you arrive at your hotel. The taxi cab begins to display several local advertisements and deals for an appetizer with a drink. You’ll can download the coupon to your cell phone, or purchase the appetizer and drink deal right from the V5 taxi tablet. Now, your time in the cab has been used effectively to purchase a deal from a local restaurant for a meal and a drink, a deal that you may not have received if you had not been in the taxi cab.
