Installing your Dash Camera

All the above dash camera kits are plug and play. However you may wish to consider a hardwired fitting option. There are several benefits for wiring your dash camera into the car battery. If you don’t want cables trailing to your 9v cigarette lighter socket then the obvious choice is to hard wire the camera to the car battery to have a clutter free dash. Some of our dash cameras can be wired in such a way that they will continue recording after you turn off the engine or start recording after an impact when the vehicle is parked. To learn more about these advance options please contact us.

If you’re still unsure give our experts a call on 01254 694537 for friendly, professional advice or get in touch through our contact form.
