It’s time for a new REALTOR® designation: Road Warrior. The National Association of REALTORS® estimates that the average real estate agent drives more than 30,000 miles each year for business-related reasons. When you cover that much ground, you see a lot of roadway action — the good, the bad, and the sometimes very ugly. It’s important to make sure you take precautions to protect yourself.
Nexar is the world’s first dash cam app that turns your smartphone into a video camera that captures everything around you as you drive. All dangerous events — like hard breaks or collisions — are automatically recorded and uploaded to your secure personal Nexar cloud storage. If — knock on wood — you happen to be involved in a traffic incident or accident, the stored information can provide the proof you need to make a claim or offer your side of the story.
After an accident, the data collected by your phone’s high-tech sensors can be used to create a free Nexar Collision Reconstruction Report, which will help all parties involved to have a better understanding of what actually happened.
Another unique feature is the internal camera mode, which allows you to record what is happening inside your vehicle with the touch of a button. This may be useful for documenting — with permission, of course — conversations had with clients as you travel around town for showings. This information can later be pulled up and reviewed if needed.
Nexar is in the process of developing a real-time warning system that will use a network of dash cams to alert users to potential dangers on the road. The Nexar app is free and available for both iOS and Android. Learn more at www.getnexar.com.
