AREAS ELIGIBLE FOR PROFESSIONAL INSTALL
THE DASH CAM INSTALLATION PROCESS
Professional dash cam installation is usually pretty speedy, but the process is specific and best left to the pros.
Usually, the front dash cam will be somewhere behind your rearview mirror. Most times, this is the best spot so the camera can capture the entire view while staying out of your sight for safe driving.
After the camera location is determined, our professional dash cam installers will route the wires where they need to go to power the camera. All wires get tucked into the headliner and pillars and are NEVER visible.
The final result is a built-in dash cam that feels like a factory component of the vehicle. Next time you are cruising down highway 91 or parking at the coffee shop, you will have more peace of mind knowing your dash cam is recording.
THIS IS WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO.
Where do you install the dash cam in the vehicle?
I am asked this quite often, and the best answer is, it depends on the vehicle. Every vehicle is different, and some vehicles have very big housings in the centre of your windshield. The goal is to have it as high as possible, and as close to the centre. You always want to make sure the windshield wipers cover the area where you mount it as well. If it snows and it’s not in that prime area, your dash cam will record the white snow and defeat the purpose. Watch our YouTube video.
Will there be any visible wires in my vehicle?
No. We make sure to tuck all wires into the headliner, a-pillar, b-pillar, and under the dash of your vehicle. Certainly, there will be nothing plugged into your cigarette lighter, making it look far tidier, freeing it up for other uses. Please take a look at the images for a better look at a fully-installed dash cam. Experience the best dash cam install service with us!
Will My Car Battery Die from Installing a Dash Cam?
The short answer is no. A couple factors is, how you install it, and how you set the dash camera up. If you have a dash camera without low battery protection, and you do not drive your vehicle regularly. As a result, there is a good chance you will kill your battery. Dash cameras sold at Safe Drive Solutions all have low battery protection. We recommend setting this for 12 volts or higher to protect your battery. For this common question about dash cams, we provide an example below.
Once I had a client say the dash camera killed their battery. After investigating we found out they had been leaving their interior light on for quite a few weeks. There is lots of factors that can kill your vehicles battery, for example leaving an accessory plugged into your cigarette lighter all night. However, getting a bad cell in your battery or leaving the interior light on all night is more common. These types of things happen but getting a dash cam with low battery protection you should be fine. If you are still worried get a backup battery for your dash cam.
Will Getting a Dash Cam Installed Void My Vehicle Warranty?
No car dealer can void your warranty on your vehicle. In fact, most car dealers sublet their aftermarket accessory work to specialty retailers. So why would it be okay for them to do it? But not okay for you. Firstly, car dealers want to use their preferred vendors. Most of the time it is someone they trust. Secondly, it gives them a chance to add some profit to the sale of their car. Who doesn’t want to make more money?
There are some instances where a car dealer can void your warranty. But let’s be clear, they cannot void the warranty on your entire car. For example, you go to a specialty shop and get aftermarket fog lights installed. Two weeks after installing you find your headlight switch no longer works. Book in an appointment at your car dealer and they find the specialty shop wired in something wrong. Leaving you with a bill when you thought you had warranty. The car dealer replaces the headlight switch, and you have full warranty again.
If you get any aftermarket work done, I always recommend reaching out to that specialty shop before bringing it in to a mechanic, or car dealer. Mistakes can happen, fuses sometimes blow, after all we are human. Most professional specialty shops have technical information on your vehicle and will have limited challenges. Think twice before trusting the random guy on Kijiji, or Facebook marketplace that will do it for cash.
Why Get a Dash Cam?
There are several reasons why you might want to use a dash camera. Here are a few:
Evidence in case of an accident If you’re involved in a car accident, a dash camera can provide valuable evidence of what happened. Therefore, the video footage can show who was at fault, which can be useful if you need to file an insurance claim or go to court.
- Protection against insurance fraud: Unfortunately, there are people who stage accidents in order to file fraudulent insurance claims. A dash camera can help protect you from this type of fraud by providing video evidence of what really happened.
- Improved driving habits: Knowing that you’re being recorded can help you be a better driver. You may follow traffic laws and drive more defensively if you know that your actions are being captured on video. Meanwhile, a lot of parents will buy this for their teenagers car for this exact reason.
- Capturing memorable moments: Dash cameras can also be used to capture fun or interesting moments on the road. For example, you may capture a beautiful sunset or a rare sighting of a wild animal that you can share with others.
