I have front dash cams on all my cars. I wanted to try out a front and rear dash cam and bought a AUKEY Dual Dash Cam – 1080P HD Front and Rear Camera! ( https://amzn.to/2THPihQ ) and a AUKEY Hardwire Motion Detection Sensor ( https://amzn.to/2D7zXBI ) which plugs into the OBDii port of the car for power.
This quick video is just an unboxing of the two products and a brief test and initial review. I will create install video later. I have already installed this camera and the hardwire on my car. Overall it was a simple install.
The AUKEY hardwire with Motion Detector Sensor powers and sends a signal to dash cams with a Parking Mode to trigger a recording. The attached box is a motion detection sensor need to be installed onto the windshield of the car. I found visibly annoying to take up my windshield real estate. I later took removed it.
I also did not want to drain my car’s 12 volt battery when I leave my car on business trips. For a future DIY I plan to add a battery power bank to enable the parking recording without draining my car battery.
In addition, it uses the car’s 12 volt battery with the OBD-II DLC port by the drivers foot well. This is convenient if you do not want to use a fuse tap ( https://amzn.to/2VSlLDV ) or slice wire for 12 volt power.
If you use your OBD-II port for other devices, don’t like the motion sensor box, or don’t like using your OBD-II port for power, there are other 12 volt hardwire kits that uses fuse taps ( https://amzn.to/2Fxedkz ) for your dash cam or USB powered devices.
Look out for more videos about this Dash cam installation, footage, and other car reviews in the future.
