cloud-api-vs-fleet-sdk-diagram

The BlackVue Cloud API and Fleet SDK
are both designed for integration of BlackVue dashcams
into third-party fleet management or GPS tracking solutions.

They do differ greatly in their implementation and features, though.

How to decide which one you need?

FEATURES

Fleet SDK

Deep customization and control

With the Fleet SDK, you get access to an array of exclusive features and control how the BlackVue dashboard cameras communicate with your vehicles’ on-board telematics.

Cloud API

Access to BlackVue Cloud features

With the Cloud API, you can connect your fleet software to BlackVue’s trusted Cloud platform powered by Amazon Web Services. Simply enhance your existing solution with live video and video files from the BlackVue dashcams.

Integration

Fleet SDK

Locally connect to the dashcam

With the Fleet SDK, your on-board telematics device connects directly to the dashcam via Wi-Fi. It is up to you to connect to the dashcam remotely using your own existing network infrastructure.

Cloud API

Connect to BlackVue’s Cloud server

With the Cloud API, your software program connects to the BlackVue Cloud server. The BlackVue dashcam must be connected to the Cloud via a Wi-Fi internet access point.
