    Bus Cameras

    Bus Camera Solutions

    There are many different segments within the bus industry and each have unique needs. For instance, a school bus company certainly doesn’t operate the same as a private charter bus company. Then there are shuttle and transit bus operators out there. The good thing is, we understand the bus industry very well and certainly understand their mobile camera needs!

    Interior Bus Cameras

    To help motorcoach companies ensure safety and protection for their drivers and passengers on a bus or motorcoach, we offer multi-mounted mobile-connected cameras inside buses to keep a watchful eye in case any incidents go down. Our vehicle CCTV systems record what happens on the inside of a bus, just in case any individuals are bullying or acting out toward one another.

    If such passenger behaviors escalate, we will then have the video evidence to show local authorities just in case anything goes down. We also offer driving-facing cameras to monitor any bad driver behaviors such as distracted driving or eyes off the road. Say one of your customer passengers voices a complaint about the driver behaviors, the buses’ surveillance footage can be easily reviewed to resolve such disputes.

    Mobile DVR for Buses: 5-channel, 8-channel, and 12-channel

    Our bus video surveillance system includes a wide range of mobile DVRs, which record video to a secure solid-state drive or an SD card, depending on the DVR (digital video recorder) installed. Our mobile DVRs are equipped with a cellular modem that provides our cameras with an online connection. That said, the footage may be readily accessed and analyzed by owners or authorized personnel through the skEYEvue Online Internet Dashboard; Even if the bus is offsite and hundreds of miles away. Managers can also utilize the live-view feature and see their cameras in real-time. All of this is made possible, because of the power of local cellular network providers (subscription fees apply).

    Exterior Bus Cameras

    The outside of your bus is a major concern when it comes to safety – after all, that’s where pedestrians, other drivers, and cyclists come into contact with your bus. With a bus camera system from skEYEwatch, your drivers can see all activity around your bus, helping to keep everyone safe and secure. In addition, if your drivers find themselves traveling through unfamiliar areas or down a narrow road, our system’s touchscreen dashboard monitor can help them see in all directions including blind spots on the sides and rear of their bus.

    Dash Cameras for Buses with Artificial Intelligence (Optional)

    Dash cameras are a must-have for any bus companies. Why? Because you’ll be able to capture footage of the road ahead in case anything happens – like another car cutting into its lanes or an q object coming up right behind them! Dash cams also have other benefits such as exposing safety concerns with Driver behavior (elderly people driving hormones!), distracted driving including texting while on their phone etc., forward collision prevention by tracking how close other vehicles might get before they eventually crash into ours… skEYEvue has all these features plus artificial intelligence that detects dangerous actions taken remotely through our platform.

    FAQs About Our Bus Cameras.

    Common answers to common questions about our bus cameras.
    At this time, we currently do not have bus stop arm cameras in our inventory. Alternatively, we do offer side-view mounted bus cameras. Our side view mounted cameras offer a clear HD picture of everything happening on the driver and passenger sides of the buses. All HD footage is recorded to the onboard mDVR.

    All of our cameras are continuously loop recording to an onboard mobile DVR. Our mDVR is online connected allowing authorized personal to use the internet and the skEYEvue online dashboard to review video surveillance online, even if the bus is offsite. This also includes viewing the cameras in real-time.

    Review our knowledge base for video demos on how to use cloud retrieval and how to use live-view in the skEYEvue online dashboard.

    It varies… We have several configuration options to optimize storage on our mDVRs. H264 is the video codec that we use which is really good for file size optimization.


    As far as how many hours can stored, it depends how big the storage drive is in gigabytes, the video resolution, and how many cameras are recording simultaneously per vehicle.


    Example: Our cameras can record up to 1080p (Full HD) up to 24fps. At that resolution and frame rate, it would eat through the storage pretty quickly, especially for vehicles that have multiple cameras. Most customers opt for 720p (standard HD) at around 15fps. At this configuration, you will still have smooth and clear picture.

    Yes! As of December 2021, there are 23 local state governments in the U.S. that have passed regulations for implementing the use of school bus cameras; These mostly pertain to stop arm camera laws. As in regards to interior surveillance cameras on school buses or school bus surveillance systems, there are no Federal laws against them. In fact, the Department of Defense Education Activity encourages school districts to consider them for the protection of their children passengers and property.

    As of 12/21/2021, there is no legal mandate that requires parents to be notified of school bus surveillance systems. The federal agencies that would govern such privacy mandates do recommend that school districts notify parents of such recording devices.

    Some do, it depends on when the bus was manufactured. As of 2021, most modern day buses that were manufactured in the past decade have factory installed safety backup cameras. Even some high-end charter buses have lane changing safety side mirror cameras, however, these types of cameras are not recording devices. -They are only used as safety cameras.

    Some privately owned charter bus companies are starting to purchase aftermarket charter bus surveillance equipment to protect their equipment and passengers. We at skEYEwatch happen to have the best charter bus surveillance system ever designed. Our bus camera system is online connected allowing owners to view their bus cameras in real-time as well as review recorded surveillance over-the-internet, even if the charter bus is offsite and over-the-road. Our platform allows bus company owners to securely view any camera attached to their vehicle’s mobile connected DVR. Fleet owners or managers are able to do this by using their private login credentials to access their skEYEvue online dashboard over the internet. They can also download video clips from past recorded footage, if needed.

    Yes, it is not uncommon for city transit buses to be equipped with surveillance equipment. In many major cities such as NYC, Chicago and Philadelphia, their cameras are only capturing video only, no audio.
