About us

Our Story

SmartWitness was born in London in 2007 under the umbrella of Y3K, a successful CCTV manufacturer and distributor in the U.K. At the time, Y3K CEO Paul Singh saw a gap in the dash camera market for commercial fleets. Up until that point, the only dash cameras available in the marketplace were cheaply made, unreliable, designed for cars only, and vulnerable to tampering. Paul then began work on the first SmartWitness product, the SVC100. Unlike other dash cams on the market, the SVC100 was designed with the fleet owner in mind. The robust performance, secure design, integration capabilities, and affordability attracted the insurance and telematics industries, resulting in a sales boom for SmartWitness. 12 years, 50 employees, 8 product launches and over 300,000 installations later, SmartWitness is still dedicated to innovating and pushing the market forward. Our line-up of connected cameras and accompanying REST API have allowed SmartWitness’ video and data to be seamlessly integrated with GPS tracking, telematics and fleet management software, ushering in the new era of Video Telematics. Our industry-leading safety technology has produced exceptional results for our clients and solutions which undeniably redefine the way vehicle risk is analysed.
