Equipment for Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV)

Kitting out your fleet of Heavy Goods Vehicles with the latest in CCTV technology is what we can offer your business. 

Stortech dome cameras have been designed with the vehicle in mind. Their low profile, flush-mounted design means that they are harder to remove accidentally and their perspex outer dome means the camera lens is protected from movement, vandalism and dirt. These make the Stortech dome cameras great for HGVs as cameras are often knocked off during operation.

With a heavy goods vehicle it can vary massively on how many cameras are required for the vehicle. Some customers may want 1-4 cameras and others may want to run 6+. The MDVR range can support up to 9 cameras with the MDVR9 supporting 8 AHD and 1 IP camera. The Timespace V400, although not HD, can support up to 16 cameras making this DVR a worthy contender in vehicle CCTV.

Everything you Need to Know About HGV CCTV (Direct Vision Standard)

On the 26th of October 2020, all HGVs over 12 tonnes will need a Direct Vision Standard safety permit to enter or operate in the Greater London area. If the vehicle falls short of the DVS then they will need to hold a safety permit and to obtain these ratings the operator must contact their manufacturer. 

All vehicles will have a star system based on the type and model of the vehicle and it is now a necessity following the 3 years notice HGV companies have had to prepare.

Direct Vision Standard is to identify how much a driver can see directly through their cab windows to ensure the safety of vunerable road users. 


 “HGVs were involved in 63% of fatal collisions with cyclists and 25% of pedestrian deaths. This is despite HGVs making up only 4% of miles driven in London city.”

Statistics from TfL and the Mayor of London’s office 

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding HGV CCTV

Is HGV CCTV a Necessity?

Sadly, CCTV installation on a HGV is not a necessity however it does drastically aid in protecting other road users and the driver of the vehicle. To work alongside the Direct Vision Standards set in London we offer our wing mirror camera system which gives a wide dynamic range for low light conditions, greater field of view and the mirrors are internal to help prevent collisions (SUREVIEW wing mirror).

What do I Need to Consider Regarding Placement?

The first thing you need to consider is the placement and position of your camera, what are you looking to capture and where do you want the wires to run (if the DVR is hardwired into the cameras). 

SUREVIEW monitors are fitted into the drivers cab with the compact cameras fitted to the sides of the vehicle. Then with HGV vehicles you have the option of cab cameras or dome cameras where generally two would be situated externally, two in the back of the vehicle where the goods are kept and one in the cab which is driver facing.

What Other Accessories Should I Consider?

Another good option for HGVs would be the 360 system we offer here. This system acts as a drivers aid and offers a birds-eye view of the vehicle so that the driver can monitor their surroundings whilst maneuvering.

Where Will My Cameras Face?

When looking into heavy goods vehicle CCTV it is important to know what you are wanting to capture and how many cameras are required to capture the necessary footage. On the below diagram labelled "HGV Schematic CCTV Placement" there is an example of what your vehicle may look like. 

(1) The external forward facing camera which will capture other road users at the front of the vehicle.
(2) The internal camera which will monitor the goods kept inside the vehicle and will be useful to capture burglary/vandalism inside the vehicle.
(3) The side-view camera, important for monitoring traffic/pedestrians on the left of the vehicle.
(4) The internal cab-view camera, used for monitoring drivers behaviour (can be used in court/legal cases where the driver is blamed)
(5) Rear facing external camera for monitoring vehicles at the rear and capturing those entering the internal storage area.
(6) Right-side external camera for monitoring the right side of the vehicle (similarly to the left camera).

Equipment we Recommend

The most popular camera we supply to large vehicles is the D056C650 with most of the customers being in the bus or coach market. The dome camera offers IP67 weatherproofing with flush mounting and wedge mounting options for complete protection from vandalism and wet weather conditions. This makes the camera perfect for external fitting on a heavy goods vehicle however it can also be mounted internally in the storage area for protection against theft of the goods. For more information on the D050 series, click here

The HGV driver's cab and the rear storage of the vehicle are often fitted with a more compact cab camera. The benefit of using the cab cameras is that the footage recorded is captured in high-definition and is easily connected to our MDVR range for quick installation. This means you are able to identify people entering and exiting the vehicle as well as monitoring the drivers behaviour whilst operating the HGV. 

On the SURE Transport website, we offer CCTV kits which have been pre-built for van and HGV use. We offer two 4 camera kits, one with a hard-drive and one which uses SD cards. For more information click here
