Crimestopper is now shipping a line of rear view mirrors with built-in monitors for backup camera that solve a particular problem.
If a camera cannot be mounted in the center of the rear of the rear bumper, the parking guidelines that appear on the mirror screen will be off center. So Crimestopper’s new mirrors have a remote control that lets the installer realign the parking guide line overlays by clicking on the remote.
The feature is available on the 9156 mirror with 4.3 inch screen and auto light sensitivity, and the 9157 with a manual dimming switch.
It is also on the top-of-the-line model 9159 with a built-in front-facing digital video recorder, which automatically turns on in sudden braking or other incidents, or when the car is parked and someone walks close by the car. Suggested retail prices on the three models first shown at CES in January range from $299 to $369.
Crimestopper is also shipping what it called the first all-in-one module for remote start, bypass module and vehicle tracking. The system provides remote start from a phone and remote door lock/unlock. It also works with the factory key. Car tracking subscriptions start at $70 a year but users who don’t buy the service may still remote start the car from the factory key. Called the MS-4, the system has a suggested retail price of $599 installed.
