Dash Camera - Kestrel 1296P / 1080P

Beat insurance fraudsters and be protected if an incident occurs.

6ST Kestrel 1296p / 1080p Dash Camera – more features, lower price:

With High resolution, 1080p/1296p recording and 170 degrees view this neat and compact dash-cam offers features only associated with higher priced cameras. See actual video Footage below.

• To maximise its coverage – Kestrel Dashcam indicates its recording status

• Key events are “Bookmarked” in the memory to avoid over-recording

• Still photographs can be taken or extracted from the video files

• A second camera can be installed for use as a reversing or near-side monitoring aid. Watch the kids in the back!

Audio recording is a switchable option

• Takes minutes to install/swap into another vehicle. Plugs into 12V or USB power socket

• Comes with a 2-year warranty

The camera goes into standby mode when the ignition is off, or the unit is unplugged. However, if a significant impact is felt by the built-in the G Sensor this triggers the Internal battery, restarts the recording providing 24/7/365 coverage whilst parked.

6th Sense 1296p Kestrel Dash Camera


6ST has been searching and testing dash cameras for some time, but until this one, all have been missing some key element or were too costly. This is the best camera that we have tested and are pleased to offer a product in line with our company policy of providing great quality, proven products tested by ourselves to give good value to our customers.

The images are sharp and clear during the day or at night, we have compared to many that claim 1080p/1296p. We confidently say it is better than most, certainly for the price and features it offers.

A rear-facing (2nd) camera can be installed internally or externally looking back from the front windscreen, or through the rear window. 

6TH SENSE TECHNOLOGIES – DASHCAM BENEFITS: 

What does a Dashcam do?

A Dashcam will record what you see when sitting behind the wheel of your vehicle. It will store the video recorded in its internal memory for you to use when you need it.

Why do I need a Dashcam?

There has been much press lately about Dashcams and it seems that they are becoming not only fashionable but provide financial benefits along with peace of mind, and they are not going to go away. That is until Manufacturers fit cameras into vehicles as standard – from 2018 all vehicles sales in the US require a reversing camera to be installed and onboard cameras are being made available for full 360-degree coverage by a number of manufacturers.

How long will it record for?

The unit is programmed to loop its recording and record over the earlier video ongoing. So effectively for as long as you have the unit in operation.

The recordings are made onto memory cards so the larger capacity card(s) you have the more data it can hold. The cards can be easily removed and replaced and the files can be downloaded onto your computer for playback.

Will it keep the important videos I need such as the record of an accident?

The important events are stored separately on the memory card in an area that will NOT be automatically overwritten. Event files can be created manually by pressing the button to start a record or alternatively by its built-in G-Sensor recording a significant shock such as a collision. These excerpts can be downloaded to be kept and then the memory card returned to the Dashcam.

What do I do if I need to use the video evidence?

Speak to your Insurer, your Solicitor or the Police about what they need. You can easily show them the video by simply removing the unit from the car and playing the film back on the unit. If you haven’t already, you can then download the file(s).

The unit’s manual or our Technical helpline 08438 497385 will tell you how to download and transfer files.

Can I report bad driving by using recorded footage?

Yes, the UK Police have set up a website the “National Dash Cam Safety Portal” where you can upload files. Our Kestrel device is fully compatible.

Will it work 24/7?

Normally the unit will work when the ignition is on only. However, the unit contains a G-Sensor that monitors for any impact or shock. If the vehicle receives a significant shock such as being driven into when parked, the unit will turn on and start recording.

The standard unit does not record all the time. If you have concerns about where you leave your vehicle then please talk to us as there are a number of ways, we can provide peace of mind.

What does it cost to install?

The standard installation is to fix the unit to the inside of the windscreen behind the rear-view mirror using the suction mounting bracket supplied at no cost. The power lead can then be routed to a 12V socket (Cigarette lighter). It is possible to hide the wiring behind the roof lining and dash and additional cables are available to support this. A professional install is also possible if required and we can provide contact details for approved contractors.

Can I extend the system?

Certainly; additional cameras, storage methods, larger monitor screen and much more is possible. We supply a full 360-degree internal and external systems with data transfer, etc.. to the “Blue Light” market. Please enquire about any additional requirements you have, and we will be happy to provide advice and quotes.

Can I get discounted insurance premiums?

You should always check with your Insurer to make sure you aren’t missing out.

There is a number, increasing all the time, of enlightened Insurers who will consider discounts (10 to 30%) when a Dashcam is fitted. Some provide a minimum specification of a system (Ours will almost certainly comply) and others require specific approval for listing of suitable units. If we are not already on any list you need us to be, we will gladly respond and provide all the necessary details to get onto any list we may have missed. See the list of those Insurers here.

How much can the Dashcam see?

The standard unit has a 170-degree field of horizontal vision. The High Definition quality of the data captured means that zooming in to look at distant objects, identifying people, reading car number plates are all possible. Please check out the actual footage on our website, taken using the 6th Sense Kestrel 2019 Dashcam. Many others do not use the same high level of definition.

Other benefits a Dashcam can provide?

Improved driving technique:

It has been proven that we perform better when we know that what we are doing is being watched – you might only be watching yourself but the same applies.

Supporting Young Drivers skill development:

A Dashcam for a new young driver could be a good idea. That way you can see how your teenager is driving. A two-way camera would show what is going on inside the vehicle. Is your teenager paying attention to the road or instead is he texting, on his mobile or distracted by passengers? You can cut down bad behaviour or habits before they lead to an accident or a prosecution.

Support for Insurance claims / capturing unusual events:

The reasons, genuine or not, for Insurance claims, have been the subject of hilarious discussions for many years – “A Horse in a red Dress being chased by a Tin Man ran out in front of me”! Perhaps the dog that ran out may explain why you swerved and parked in that Couples front garden…………….

Take still photos:

Most of our phones have cameras now but the Dashcam can also take stills to show the details of an event – registration plates, people involved, copies of Insurance documents or addresses, accident damage………….

Reduce risk of Fraud:

The Insurance Fraud Bureau estimates that 30,000 “crash for cash” incidents – for example, when a driver slams on their brakes to make the following car hit them – take place every year!

Give us a call!

In summary – for a small investment a Dashcam brings a myriad of benefits and with the potential for significant insurance savings, it could easily pay for itself too.
