Auxiliary camera installation overview

Auxiliary cameras can be installed on different spots of the vehicle to enable tracking of other perspectives during trips. Auxiliary cameras record video but do not record audio. Once installed, fleet managers associate each auxiliary camera with a single main AI-12 dashcam through the Surfsight app or hardwiring. They control the functionality of each of the auxiliary cameras from their cloud account by accessing the associated dashcam.


This installation should be performed by a qualified or professional person only. Working with your vehicle's power system can be dangerous. Consult a professional for guidance.

There is a single Camera wire that comes out of the camera, splitting into the following three wires:

  • Power connection - with a round power barrel connector socket for power - 5.5x2.1mm (no pin).

    A round barrel pigtail connector (sold separately) or a round DC connector should be used to power the connector that appears below.


    The round barrel socket may be cut and spliced - but this must be done (as should the entire installation) by a professional. Power should be connected to a 12V power source that is on only when ignition power is on (and not through constant power).

  • Reset button - a button designed to change the WiFi connectivity or to reboot the camera.

    To reboot the camera, press the button once.

    Hold the reset button for 10 seconds to return the camera to its factory default settings and to enable the camera as a WiFi hotspot.


    The reset button cable must not be removed as it is the only way to return the camera to factory default settings in case of any issues.

  • Ethernet connector - This connector is used in case the camera is wired with an ethernet connector. This connector can be removed if needed.


    Cutting the ethernet connector cable must be done past the point where the initial cables splits to 3 cables.
