Car Door Wireless Projector Courtesy Lights – REVIEW & MOD

My 2018 Honda Clarity and other car now lack door courtesy lights so I wanted to try out and test the generic car door projector lights ( https://amzn.to/2T5Lkl7 ) that are found on Amazon for $10- $14 for two. I will unbox, install, review and take apart the projector lights for entertainment. I plan to modify the light in the future videos and see show durable these lights are. The main objective for these lights was for courtesy lights to see if I dropped something on the ground when exiting or entering the car.

In my previous video I added ambient lighting to my Honda and other cars . I used a simple car RGB flexible LED light kit ( https://amzn.to/3nNsQDV ). These projector door lights are battery powered by AAA batteries and are adhered to the door panel triggered by a magnetic switch. Installing these lights took about 20 minutes to position. The curvature of the door panels only allowed for 60 percent of the foot print to be mounted. Being so light weight it worked, but only time will tell. We will do a follow-up video if they fall or fail.

Costco TYPE S Wireless Solar Powered 720P HD Backup Camera $149 (2020 version)

Costco just brought out the 2020 version of Type S wireless solar powered 720 P HD backup camera There are similar solar powered wireless backup cameras online: https://amzn.to/3nzTQGN

There are several improvements to the 2017 – 2018 versions I bought and reviewed. I bought the 2017 version of the Type S Solar HD Wireless Car Backup Cam for $124! Here is the install and review video ( https://youtu.be/SP5ifKcy7Vk ). It has lasted past 3 years with occasional charging. I normally park outdoors in full sun. This is a good kit if you don’t want to splice wires and just want a plug and play solution. There are other wireless backup cameras which use 12 volt power from a reverse light ( https://amzn.to/2OdiudB ), but this unit makes it even simpler for the DIYer!

The 2020 TypeS Solar Wireless Backup Cam uses two solar panels on each side of the license plate to power the camera! It has a battery and solar panel built in to the license plate! From the specifications, they now have a 5000 mah battery, which is larger than my 3350 mah battery in the 2017 version. The camera is also off center on the frame. The new version also is able to use two cameras for the front and back view. According to the box, they assume you will leave your car charging in the sun for at least 2 hours a day, and using the backup camera for less than 10 times.

The installation instructions are virtually the same as my 2017 version and will probably take about 10 minutes to install. The backup camera kit is activated by waving your hand at the monitor , touch screen, and by g-sensor (car movement) to wake up the camera.

REVIEW: $30 Digital TPMS – 6 Month Review | Energizer CR 1632 batteries

Six months after installing the $30 Digital Tire Pressure Monitoring System ( https://amzn.to/2ncBVf6 ) on my Honda Clarity and Accord, two of the sensors started to have errors. I found out two batteries that came with the set was low so i replaced them with Energizer CR1632 ( https://amzn.to/3gpfo4q ). Hopefully we will find out how long these batteries last on teh TPMS sensors.

My new 2018 Honda Clarity and 2007 Honda Accord does not have a TPMS system that tells tire pressure and temperature of the tires. My 2007 Accord simply didnt have TPMS . My 2018 Honda Clarity on checks tire rotation to determine if the diameter is smaller to indicate over or under inflation of the tires. I loved my Chevy Volt which has individual meters for each tire. Individual guage allowed me to monitor status and if I had a air leak. Good for finding a tire leak before a flat tire.

The kit is solar powered with a battery and a USB input for 5 volt power. This makes it convenient to be wire free when i put it on my dash. In order to keep the unit from flying off my dash board, I added Scotch double sided tape ( https://amzn.to/2pCOvFr ) on the bottom of the TPMS unit and added anti-slip shelving mat foam ( https://amzn.to/2nULpfs ) . You could have just used a cell phone anti-slip mat ( https://amzn.to/2n7sZre ) .

I charged the kit in a USB charger for 2 hours before installing kit. The kit was already calibrated for all four tires of the car: Front Right, Front Left, Rear Right, Rear Left. You just need add the locking nut onto the tire nipple, then add the sensor to the corresponding tire location. Use the provided mini spanner / wrench to tighten the nuts against the TPMS sensor. You are able to set the high and low pressure alarm and units settings such as PSI vs BAR or F vs C. In a few minutes the main controller receives tire data from the individual tires.

I tested the tire pressure against my digital tire pressure gauge (https://amzn.to/2naQQGH ) and fount it accurate.
