The camera I had was samsara. In the night you could always see a red light just on top of the camera and it was always on. I found out today they can check in at any time, that's what they do to drivers with bad driving records which seemed like an excuse since my record is clean. I don't use my phone while I drive most of the time at least, only to change between playlists. I just hated how I felt like a criminal scratching my own balls.
