                      Important Notes

                      The Owl Car Cam is always on, 24 hours a day - Recording everything while you drive and ready to record things that happen when you are parked. For the last 24 hours, your driving and any video alerts are available for your review. This can include up to 12 hours of driving a day. (We hope your commute is shorter than that!)


                      Owl gets alerts and video to your phone using the AT&T 4G network in all 50 states of the good ol’ US of A.  If you are out of coverage, Owl’s features such as video titling and transfer to your phone will happen when you get back in coverage. Speeds will vary with coverage.  


                      Owl Car Cam delivers most with the Owl LTE Service.  It delivers up to 60 video alerts or up to 60 minutes of LIVE/24 viewing per month.  More data can be purchased through the app.  Without the service, you can still use your phone to control the camera and transfer videos over Wi-Fi.


                      If someone breaks in and steals your Owl Car Cam, we'll replace it.  You'll get a thief selfie sent to your phone and we will send you a replacement Owl Car Cam. See Owl Warranty for details.


                      Owl looks out for your car’s battery and itself - The camera goes into standby if the battery voltage is low or if you have not driven for 24 hours.  For example, in extreme cold, the Owl Car Cam will turn off to protect the battery.  On hot days (>90°F) if you park in the sun with the windows up, in a few hours the inside of the car may hit 140°F or higher.   When the inside of your car gets that hot, the Owl Car Cam will go into a standby state until the temperature drops below 120°F.
