Connect a wired auxiliary camera to a router

For optimum connectivity, install the router as close as possible to the dashcam.

The router must have:

  • support for WIFI

  • enough LAN ports for the number of auxiliary cameras you are installing

  • connections to 12V or 24V DC

Tip

Any router with the above requirements should work. We have tested the following routers and found them compatible with our auxiliary cameras:

In addition, we recommend you consider the following based on the kind of installation:

  • M12/RJ45 network extension cables

  • router enclosure box

To connect the camera to a router:

Important

Most M12 network cables are rated IP67. Any connections that are outside the vehicle cabin should be protected by automotive grade conduit. This is not supplied with the auxiliary camera.

Warning

Prior to installing the router, verify the polarity of the router.

Warning

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

  1. Connect the M12/RJ45 network extension cable to the auxiliary camera.

    The network extension cable comes in five or twenty meters.

  2. Connect the M12/RJ45 network extension cable to a LAN port of the router.
