< What is 'Start Alarm'? >
'Start Alarm' is a function that alerts a driver to 'time to drive' with a sound, "Honk Honk".
This function is activated when the driver's vehicle does not move though a car ahead already left 2~3 seconds ago, for example at a traffic light.
Start Alarm is based on the 'Motion Tracking' technology that enables AW1 to recognise movements of a car ahead.
AW1 starts sensing cars movements in front of it after approximitely 7-second from the moment
when driver's vehicle stops, for example at a traffic light.
Sensing movements of a car ahead starts again when the driver's vehicle stops next time.
'Start Alarm' is not activated when AW1 is under Parking Recording Mode or, AW1 is connected
by Wi-Fi with a smart device.
The performance of 'Start Alarm' might not be good as usual during the night or under dark shadowy
environments where there are not enough light.
The performance of 'Start Alarm' may vary depends on the direction which AW1 faces, other movements
on the road or the brightness of surroundings.
It is highly recommended to use 'Start Alarm' as an aid for driving only. Please keep in mind that cautious
driving is the best way for safety.
