Flock Safety Help Center

Can Flock help with illegal dumping?

Yes

Flock has helped in countless instances of illegal dumping from cars, during the daytime. In the instances where we accomplished this, the camera was positioned to capture the entire rear of the vehicle on a road or alley that would be used to access the dumpster.

Flock cameras have an intentionally narrow field of view, so the area that we can cover is smaller than most security cameras. Our motion detection works up to 75 feet, and the field of view at that distance is ~20 feet wide (about 1.5 lanes of traffic). If the field of view is unable to capture both the rear of vehicles and the dumpster, then we recommend focusing on the license plate.
