Connects2 Vision are determined to deliver you top quality products at reasonable prices that help you stay safe on the roads. We want to make sure you get the best of our products when using them so here are our top tips for you to use our cameras to their full potential.

5. Get our car cameras installed by a professional

Of course, you want to get the best out of your camera when purchasing from us, which is why we recommend getting your car camera fitted by a professional installer to ensure you get the best experience from your camera. A professional installer will ensure that your car camera is wired in correctly and angled to give you the best possible view making reversing manoeuvres as easy as possible.

4. Get car cameras that are suitable for your application

We can all get over excited when looking at new technology and want the best possible version we can afford. But it’s important you don’t go overboard and purchase a camera full of features that you’ll never use. You might find some of our cameras are fully IP69K rated (If you are unsure what that means check here) but if your vehicle doesn’t receive any hard use, you might find one of our IP68 or even IP67 rated car cameras more suitable and more affordable for your application.

3. Clean the lenses regularly

A reversing camera is only any good if it can show you a clear view behind you, unfortunately when you are out on the roads dirt and grime can often cover the lenses of cameras making it extremely difficult for them to do their job to the best of their ability. Making sure the lenses are clean gives them the best opportunity to give you a clear view of what’s behind you and making reversing manoeuvres a simple operation.

2. Ensure Dash Cameras have a clear view ahead

To make sure your dash camera can do its job properly it needs a clear view of the road ahead so it can record any accident in front of you and ensure you have the evidence ready to view whenever possible. The last thing you want is to get into an accident go to look at your footage and find all you can see is the fluffy dice hanging from your rear-view mirror. It’s important to make sure the camera is facing the right way, with nothing blocking its view and the windscreen in front of the lens is as clean as possible.

1. Look at upgrading your car camera setup further

If you’ve already installed one of our cameras and found the experience to be more than fantastic and are now looking to expand your vehicle’s technology offering why not take a look at our Dash Cam selection which can make sure you keep all the evidence in the event of an accident. Or look at one of our reversing cameras that feature dynamic parking lines and make reversing manoeuvres easy. You could also look at our Parking Sensor Number Plate holders which can improve reversing experiences even further.
