Have you ever reversed into an object that was outside the field of view of your vehicle’s mirrors? It is not easy to avoid such accidents, especially when the space is limited. If you have had such an experience, then you certainly know how important it is to have a clear view of the obstructed part before reversing.

A car camera system incorporating a reversing camera allows you to clearly view that part that is outside the field of view of ordinary mirrors. With a reversing camera, you can better avoid reversing into a post or any other object and cause damage to your car or other people’s property.

Some newer cars have smaller windows and large pillars. It is difficult to see objects or people behind such vehicles when reversing, and the likelihood of causing an accident is therefore higher. A reversing camera is designed to enable you to reverse without worrying about the part that is blocked by your vehicle. This safety device also helps you to avoid fines that result from damaging property or hitting people.

Car Camera System Choices

Although some cars come with pre-installed reversing cameras, most new cars do not have them.

If your answer is yes, then you have many options to choose from. However, it is important to exercise caution when buying a reversing camera for your vehicle. This will help you to avoid purchasing products that cannot give you value for your money.

Neltronics offers Australian motorists a wide range of high quality reversing cameras.

The choices you have in selecting your car camera system include:

– The camera (wide or narrow view angle, standard or low-light models, cameras with lights, and various mounting options)
– The video screen (a monitor or video mirror)

You don’t have to worry too much about whether those two components of the car camera system work with each other, if you buy both from Neltronics then they will be 100% compatible.

Camera options

If you are looking for a reversing camera that offers a wide view angle, then you should consider devices that offer a view angle of 170°.

Some of the products that offer this view angle include the NESA CMD-170GL Dual Mount Mini Camera, the NESA CCD-DUAL170 Dual Mount Mini Camera, and the NESA CCD-HD17 Mini Box Camera.

In case you are looking for a good low-light camera, then have a look at this one.  This CCD-IR camera has in-built infra-red lighting LEDs to illuminate the surrounding area. Because the light is infra-red, humans cannot see it but the camera does.  So you get a better image on the video monitor due to the additional lighting for the camera. Which means you’ll see more detail on the video when reversing your vehicle at night.

This is a flush mount camera making it ideal to fit to vehicle bumpers. Your installer will fit this for you.

Monitor options

Monitors come in different sizes, and it is important to consider the space in your vehicle before ordering a specific product. If the space in your car is limited, then it is advisable to go for a small display such as the 4” NESA NSM-40WM Windscreen Mount LCD monitor.

On the other hand, if your vehicle has dash space to accommodate a dash-mounted display, then the NESA NRM-564 5.6″ LCD monitor is a suitable choice.

Are you looking for a larger reverse monitor for your vehicle? If your answer is yes, then you should consider the 7” NESA NSM-7451QT Touch Screen TFT-LCD Monitor or the 7” NESA NSM-7300 Digital TFT-LCD Monitor.

In case your vehicle does not have a space for a reverse monitor, then you should go for a mirror with integrated monitor. To install this monitor, you just need to replace your vehicle’s mirror with one with an integrated video screen.

Installation

After buying a reversing camera and a monitor, the next thing is to ensure that the system is properly installed.
