Product Details

Our Blind Spot Sensor System mounts sensors on either side of the vehicle to alert you of vehicles in your side blind spots. One of the hardest to areas to see around your vehicle while driving is the area slightly behind and to the side of the vehicle. This is precisely where these sensors mount to alert you of vehicles that would otherwise be hard to see. While there will always be visual alerts, audio warnings will only trigger if the turn signals are on. The visual alert for this system is strategically placed in the "A" pillar in the vehicle to be easily seen by the driver. 

Note: Sensors cannot installed with a metal bumper.

Questions on Blind Spot Sensor System

  • From Jack at 8/31/2015 11:17 AM
    • A further explanation of this system would be appreciated. What size are the buttons? Is this a visual or sound alert? If sound, how long is it active? What are the other components to the RVS-BES02?
    • The buttons are just under an inch in diameter and mount in the "A" pillar inside the vehicle. There's a visual alert (the buttons light up) and an audio alert from a speaker. Its activated as long as there is a vehicle within the sensor range (about 2 meters).
      System comes with 2 sensors, 2 buttons, a speaker, control module and all necessary cabling.

    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From David at 2/2/2016 10:39 PM
    • Hello I wanted to know can this be wired to work so that anytime a car passes on either side it will light up regardless of having the signals on and also if you dont want the alarm can you just not connect it? Thank you.
    • Yes, you can simply not connect the alarm and then wire the system to ignition power so that the lights will come on whenever there's a car next to you.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Joe at 4/7/2016 3:32 PM
    • I have a 2015 Infiniti QX60 where are the sensors placed so that a warning light will go on before the other vehicle hits the blind spot is there a lapse of time before the light goes on? Example I'm traveling at x speed want to make a left turn into left lane,will I have enough time to move over when the warning light suddnley appear or will it resort in a collission.because when the light goes on the other vehicle is already to driver side door

    • The sensors are mounted on either side of the vehicle towards the back so they sense a vehicle before it hit the blind spot. It then alerts you by the time the vehicle is in the blind spot.

Ask Your Own Question

Auto Iris Sensor

Senses ambient light and automatically adjusts infra-red strength based on the ambient light.

Display Contrast/Contrast Ratio

The ratio of the brightest color (white) to the darkest color (black) that the system is capable of producing. A high contrast ratio is a desired aspect of any display.

Display Format/Display Aspect Ratio

The proportional comparison between a display’s width and height. It is expressed as two numbers separated by a colon. Common aspect ratios for displays are 4:3, 16:9, and 21:9. 16:9 is the international standard format for Full HD.

Dot Pitch

A dot pitch measures the maximum sharpness of a displayed image. Usually measured in millimeters (mm), a smaller number means a sharper image.

Dot Resolution

Dots are elements that make up an image. The higher the dot resolution, the higher quality the image.

Event Mode

Video recording mode which causes footage to be overwrite protected. Event mode is usually triggered with unusual vehicle movement or sudden impact.


Frames per second (FPS) is a measurement of how many unique consecutive images a camera can handle every second.


Measures impact or sudden changes in velocities. Once the G-Sensor is activated, event mode automatically begins.

Gamma Correction

Corrects colors on your display.


A style of video compression that allows for the greatest video quality with the smallest storage space.

IP Rating

The IP rating measures protection against solid and liquid objects. The larger the number, the higher the rating. An IP69K rating is the highest rating available, meaning that the system is completely weatherproof.

Infra-Red Illuminator

Infra-red lights are for night vision. Infra-reds emit light which the human eye cannot detect but cameras can. This greatly increases visibility in zero or low light conditions without an actual visible light source. Many of our cameras are equipped with infra-red lights.

Loop Recording

Video recording mode where after video storage is full, the camera will seamlessly loop over and begin recording over the oldest footage.

Mobile DVR

A recording device used to record video footage. DVR's are useful for fleet managers because they provide footage of accidents and information on vehicle's whereabouts and driving routes.

Motion Detection

A feature that automatically records before, during and after an impact while in parking mode. This way the driver has footage from an accident, even when they’re away from their car.


The control unit or "brain" of the system. The multiplexer powers the system, receives all cameras feeds and sends them to the monitor. The multiplexer is connected straight to the fuse box and has a power capacity of 12-24 volts.


National Television System Committee (NTSC) is a video system that transmits 30 frames per second (FPS).

Necessary/Usable Illumination

Measures how much ambient light (measure in lux) is needed to view an image. If your system has infra-red illuminators, 0 lux is needed.


Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) refers to equipment that was installed in a vehicle when it was manufactured. OEM style is an installation with a clean, factory look.


Phase Alternation by Line (PAL) is a video system that transmits 25 frames per second (FPS).

Picture Elements

Picture elements is another way to write pixel. A pixel is the smallest addressable element in digital imaging. The more pixels, the higher the quality image.

Power Supply

Most of our systems may be powered by 12 or 24 volt batteries, meaning they can be powered by the vehicle battery. DC stands for direct current.

S/N Ratio (Signal-to-Noise Ratio)

Compares the level of desired signal to the level of background noise. A ratio above 1:1 (greater than 0dB) indicates more signal than noise.


A physical or mechanical shock is a sudden acceleration caused by outside factors such as impact. It is usually measured in G units, which represent multiples of the acceleration of gravity.


A high quality monitor used in appliances such as television sets, computer monitors and mobile phones. A TFT LCD monitor improves image qualities including contrast and sharpness. These displays only use up to half the power of a traditional monitor.

TV Lines

The maximum number of alternating light and dark vertical lines that can be resolved per picture height. The higher the number, the better the image quality


An automatic action that occurs when a specific operation occurs. An example is a rear camera view displaying when a car is put into reverse.


A mechanical phenomenon where fluctuations occur about an equilibrium point. It is usually measured in g units, which represent multiples of the acceleration of gravity.
