Many new cars come with a built-in rear view camera, but some models, especially older ones, do not.

We can install them, increasing the safety or your vehicle enormously. You have a nice selection to choose from adding greater functionality to an older model car.

A rear-view camera will help eliminate the blind spot directly behind your car helping you avoid backing into or over what you formerly could not see. Rear-view cameras also let you see the lower areas you can’t with your mirror, which is especially significant if there are young children in your yard or driveway. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that in the United States, 50 children per week are struck or run over by a vehicle reversing out of a driveway.

At Catlin we’re thinking about you.

The cameras also help your overall driving safety. When installing a camera, you have the choice of wiring it to a reversing light or to a constant power source. If you wire it to a constant power source, the camera will show the road behind you even if you’re not in reverse. This helps you be a safer driver on the highway, as well as in the driveway.
