Mount an auxiliary camera

Once you've connected the auxiliary camera to a power source and paired it with the dashcam, mount the camera.

  • Mounting at different spots of the vehicle enables tracking and video recording of additional perspectives during trips.

  • Up to four auxiliary cameras can be paired with each dashcam.

When you mount wired auxiliary cameras:

  • make sure to avoid pinch points when routing cables

  • use cable ties

  • protect any cables that enter the vehicle cabin with grommets when applicable

  • seal any entry points into the vehicle cabin

This article describes how to mount:

Mounting flush-mount auxiliary cameras

Screw the mounting bracket attached to the camera into the vehicle structure at the desired location. The weight of the camera alone will destroy the skin panels on the doors.

Tip

We recommend using either:

  • M5 machine screws (stainless steel or zinc anodized) with pan heads and M5 rivet nutserts

  • M6 machine screws and nyloc nuts and washers

If you attach the camera to a single panel, you also need a support plate behind the panel.

Note

Make sure there is some slack in the cable to allow for adjustment.

Note

Auxiliary camera mounting brackets are different than dashcam mounting brackets. They cannot be used interchangeably.

Mounting wrap-mount auxiliary cameras

  1. Place the silicone pad along the top of the camera.

    The silicone pad has ridges that enable you to cushion the camera when using the hose clamps for installation, provides a better seal, and prevents scratching.

  2. Slide the hose clamps through the slots at the top of the camera.
