Backup cameras are a very popular category at Driven Sound & Security. Our customers often tell us that they wanted a certain feature on their new vehicle, but were not willing to pay $2,000–$5,000 for an option package because it included features they would never use. In most cases, if there is a feature you want, all you have to do is ask us. It’s easy to add satellite radio, heated seats, a remote starter or a backup camera to most vehicles.
As a safety item, a backup camera is a great option. Let’s look at a few ways we can install one on your vehicle.
Use What You Have
Being able to see behind your vehicle with a high-resolution camera makes backing up much safer. Toys, parking blocks, children and pets often can’t be seen out the back window. A backup camera’s wide-angle lens allows you to see these objects, and much more. If you already have a color display in your vehicle, we can often display a backup camera image right on that screen. The image will appear instantly when you put the vehicle in reverse. There are no switches to remember – it is fully automatic.
If you do not have a screen, then another great option is a new rearview mirror with a built-in monitor. Just like the factory display, the reverse image will appear on the screen as soon as you start to back up. When you take the transmission out of reverse, the screen disappears, and you are left with what looks like an ordinary rearview mirror. We also offer mirrors with Bluetooth, Navigation and backup sensor options.
Heavy Duty Backup Cameras
If you want a large camera image, we can install a dedicated backup monitor. Screens range from 3.5” up to an impressive 7” in size. Some of these monitors have multiple inputs, so you can add another camera or two to the system. Additional cameras are great for trucks and industrial equipment, where visibility is limited by the sheer size of the vehicle and its accessories. Tow trucks, cube vans and work trucks are great candidates for a heavy-duty rear vision system.
Backup Camera Styles
We offer backup cameras in many styles – from flush-mounted Keyhole style units to ones integrated into third brake lights, tailgate handles and license plate brackets. We treat camera and monitor installations with the same care and attention that all of our projects receive. We connect the wiring reliably, protected and secured in place to ensure trouble-free operation. In most cases, unless you point out the camera to someone, no one would never know you had one.
