The SecurView SV-5200.IR Backup Camera

The SecurView SV-5200.IR is a bar type camera designed to be mounted on the vehicle license plate using the existing license plate holes. It has a 180° viewing angle to give the driver the absolute best view behind the vehicle as well as Infra-Red LED for night vision to provide the best lighting in night time driving conditions. There is no drilling or cutting required making it very easy to install taking very little time. This uniquely designed camera can be used on any passenger car, truck, SUV or van. It can even be used on bigger trucks, buses or motor homes. The waterproof design allows the camera to face harsh weather elements in any climate.

The SV-5200.IR mounts easily to the license plate using the existing factory license plate screws. The rounding shape gives it a cleaner look on the vehicle and the plate-mount design makes it easy to install requiring no holes to be drilled and no modifying of the license plate

General Features

Color Type
This will denote whether the displayed image is color or black & white.
Night Vision
Some cameras are equipped with additional lighting for improved performance in low light conditions. LED lights will drastically improve range visibility and maintain a color image. Infrared LED lights have an even further visible range but lack a color image; this is a true night vision feature.
Infrared LED's
Sensor Type
Currently, cameras will typically use a CMOS, CCD or CMD sensor type. A CMOS camera is your most common type due to its low cost and quality performance. CMOS cameras also use much less power than a CCD but are more susceptible to noise interference. A CCD camera is much more sensitive than a CMOS camera so the pictures are cleaner and less grainy and perform much better in low light situations. A CMD camera is right in between the two as it has a better image quality over CMOS cameras and a comparable picture quality to the CCD cameras without being quite as expensive.
Video Output
This is how the video signal is outputted to the receiver. Most items use RCA composite cables, while other units use wireless transmitters or other video cables.
RCA Composite Cable
Mounting Type
This is the manner in which the unit is attached to the vehicle.
Top of License Plate Frame
Adjustable Tilt
This means that the item can be tilted and adjusted to achieve the perfect view for the user.
Weatherproof items are protected from the elements. They usually are treated or coated with special materials that help protect them. Normally, weatherproof units are sealed to keep any water from getting inside.
Reverse Image
Mirror Image is feature which horizontally flips the camera's image before it is output to a display. This is necessary when the camera is being used as a backup camera so that the orientation of viewed image is the same as if the driver is looking in a rear view mirror. Cameras without this feature are to be used to view images in front of the driver.
Parking Guidelines
Parking guidelines is a feature which displays guidelines over the image from the camera to assist the driver with parking. The guidelines help to determine distance between the camera and an obstruction.
Built-in Microphone
Some cameras have built-in microphones in order to provide an audio feedback of the environment outside, or to record audio when using the camera for security purposes.
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Frame Material
This is the material that the license plate frame is made of.
Camera Housing Material
This is the material that the housing of the camera is made out of.
Minimum Illuminance
Essentially the amount, or intensity of, the visible light required for a clear picture. A lower Lux rating designates a camera that will function better with less light.
0 lx
Screen Size
This is the size of the monitor on the unit. It is measured diagonally and in inches. The bigger the number the larger the screen.

I'm Happy

January 2, 2012

I would recommend the Crimestopper SV-5200.IR because it was easy to install and it is a big improvement over my former camera because it illuminates the area at night so I can see clearly. Also the coverage at the back of my big Suburban is fully captured so I can back the truck up.

Great value

September 5, 2012

I had a previous after market camera already installed in my car and hooked up to my Pioneer Z110. When the camera broke this was a low cost replacement I was able to install myself within 30 minutes. It works very well for over 6 months now and is better than what I had before.
The built in distance guide is dependent on the angle the camera is pointed at and not very accurate, but still helpful as reference once you learn what the actual distance is.

Desperate Measures.

October 12, 2011

I thought it would be great to have a back-up camera like a lot of the newer model production cars have, so I purchased the Crimestopper SV-5200.IR. Mounting it was not easy as one has to drill a hole thru the number plate and the trunk of your car that is about 1 inch in diameter to pass the cable thru. Then comes the harder part of running the cable to your Deck at the front of the car. Once done, it works as described, but the colors are totally washed out or muted. Basically it is a Black and White camera with a hint of unidefined colors. During the day, the image is totally overexposed. Night vision is very good. The angle of view is about 120 degrees max.
