A new dashcam DVR that is also a wired backup camera (requiring installation) is available to dealers from Blackboxguard, Los Angeles, which is entering the 12 volt retail driver safety market.
Earlier this year, the company introduced a 360 degree camera with 4-minute calibration time and a 3 hour installation time called the Cammsys 360.
Blackboxguard is in the process of setting up a manufacturer’s representative network beyond California. It is seeking reps for the East Coast and Southwest territories.
Its new M9 DVR has a 3.5-inch color touch screen that can also double as a backup camera monitor. It comes with a rear view camera that can connect to the reverse light so the DVR automatically shows a rear view when the car goes into reverse.
The rear camera has a 140-degree viewing angle and the front camera for the DVR has a 130-degree viewing angle. Both are high definition cameras. The rear camera can be upgraded with weather proof IR (infrared) cameras for external installation and better picture quality under low light conditions.
The M9 has advanced DVR features including motion sensing so it works even while the car is parked. If someone side swipes the car it triggers the DVR to start recording. It uses a 16GB memory card (and accepts up to 128 GB) and it has GPS for location stamp.
Blackboxguard’s Jonathan Choi says, “A similar dashcam with a similar backup camera system would normally cost up to a $1000 when purchased indivually,” while the suggested price for the M9 is under $500.
Blackboxguard products are made in South Korea.
