Does the backup camera safety system work at night?
Yes. All our back up camera systems work great at night. Built into the camera are 18 infrared lights so you can see your blind zone in total darkness.
Will I be able to install it myself?
Many people have the handiness to install our systems without having to hire assistance. Otherwise we recommend professional installation because they can guarantee that the system is installed correctly. Search Google or the Yellow Pages for “Auto Accessories” or “Truck Accessories.” They typically charge $150-200 for installation.
How hard is it to install?
The installation process is standard and straightforward. Your ability to install it on your own depends on your handiness. Otherwise, look for a professional.
What is the power source and how does it work?
Both the camera and monitor run off of one 12V/24V power-source. We use a central multiplexer, which allows all the cables to run off of one power source.
Where does one install the camera?
Typically the camera is placed at the top-center of the rear of the vehicle and angled properly as to eliminate your blind zone.
Do the systems function properly in rain or bad weather?
The camera is fully waterproof with a IP68 rating and will have no difficulty operating in temperatures ranging from -10°C to 50°C. Occasionally you will need to wipe clean the glass over the camera lens as watermarks and dust do collect.
Is the system always on?
It’s your choice. The system can be installed to operate whenever the ignition system is turned on or only when the vehicle is in reverse gear. (For safety purposes, we recommend activation when backing up, so that the driver is not distracted).
What is the purpose of a rear view camera system?
They allow the driver to see behind the vehicle in the area, which mirrors alone cannot reach, also called the Blind Zone.
Will this work on any vehicle?
Yes. We have a system that will fit virtually any truck, commercial vehicle, emergency vehicles, trailers, RVs, motor homes, etc.
