Show 'Em Your Best Side

The SecurView™ SV-6818.EM is an up-insert type camera meaning that a hole must be drilled for the camera to fit into place on the car. Once the the hole is drilled the camera snaps into place leaving just the lens to be seen and giving it a nice clean appearance of a lip mount camera. The camera has selectable normal or reverse imaging, a built-in distance guard grid to help the driver accurately judge the distance behind the vehicle and an ultra-wide 170° viewing angle. A hole saw bit is provided with the camera for drilling the hole for the camera's insert.

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.
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.
Resolution (pixels)
A display's pixel resolution defines its ability to resolve fine details. Digital TVs and projectors measure screen resolution in pixels. The higher the resolution, the more detailed the picture will be.
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.
Remote Mount
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.
Lens Distortion Correction
Lens distortion correction is a feature which allows for the viewing of faraway objects and an uninterrupted horizontal (left to right) path without the need for a fish-eye view.
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.

Look like Lexus one...

July 16, 2012

I'm really happy with my back up camera. Looks like OEM on my 2009 Camry LE. Also, I have a navigation system, and it looks like OEM. The people ask me how I have all this on my Camry. I highly recommend this camera.

Easy to install!!

December 2, 2011

For those looking for a OEM look, this is the camera. Includes a grid to help you measure how far you are from everything.

No need for extra lights or incredible with only the reverse lights. Also, use some rain x and enjoy rear vision in the worst weather.

Crimestopper Rearview camera

November 13, 2012

I have been looking for a rear view camera for my Altima but did not want to spent too much on one. I found this one on sales and it is a flush mount kit so it makes it look oem to the car and it only took me 30 minutes to drill the hole and run the wire to my indash. Great picture!

Exactly what it says it is and worked great.

December 12, 2012

This is a great little camera. Works pretty dang good in low light and not given me any trouble. I used it to replace the rear view mirror in my little Smart Fortwo since I am tall and it hung so low.
