We provide both a supply and fit or fit your own equipment service. Our standard 'hardwire' installation means no trailing cables, with power sourced from behind the dash from either a fuse box or other suitable feed. This keeps your cigarette lighter or accessory socket free for your own use, and keeps your car interior clutter free with all necessary wiring run behind trims and roof lining.
We endeavour to briefly run through the camera installation locations before we get to work, to ensure customer satisfaction with the end result. Positioning may vary from vehicle to vehicle, but we will always try to maximise the camera view whilst keeping within legal vision requirements of the driver.
Many cameras now come with added 'parking mode' protection, recording whilst the vehicle is turned off. We can help you set this feature up, if applicable, however we have found many budget cameras do not have the necessary battery voltage protection required in some cases to stop your vehicle battery from being depleted if left for a long period. We will advise on the best method of installation or recommend alternative options, such as an additional power bank or the BlackVue power magic pro, if needs must.
Thinkware offers a wide spectrum of high quality dash cam products to suit all budgets. Having fitted dozens of brands of cameras over the years, it's little wonder we chose to exclusively offer the Thinkware range of cameras to our customers, as South Essex only mobile Authorised Dealer.
All cameras come with a 1 year warranty on the main unit extended for an additional year upon free registration of the product (6 months on the SD card as these are consumable items). The latest range also all feature format free technology, removing the need for periodic SD card formatting every few weeks that most budget camera systems rely on. All cameras feature multiple parking modes with fully adjustable vehicle battery protection and cut off periods. Modern vehicle batteries with their smart charging systems are extremely critical of low voltages, Thinkware cameras allow voltage shutdown to be set in 0.1V increments and therefore avoid over discharge, minimising battery stress. A feature many dash cams simply do not have.
We will briefly establish the best location for your camera (or cameras) to be positioned in the vehicle with you. All installations are 'hardwire', meaning connection directly to the fusebox where possible or power feeds adjacent. All cabling with be run and hidden behind vehicle trims, aside from a short length to each camera. We then set up and demonstrate the camera operation with you, including downloading footage and changing settings on the relevant Thinkware smartphone app (if applicable). This is an essential part of our service, there is little point having a top of the range dash cam if you do not understand how to use it, so please allow 20 minutes or so for this at the end of the install. And of course we are only a phone call away if you ever require any assistance in the future. The installation is fully reversible meaning we can remove and refit the system if you wish to change vehicle in the future.
