SRF-AUX-S51-03P

Wi-Fi auxiliary cameras

Wi-Fi auxiliary cameras pair to the dashcam through Wi-Fi, and do not need to be physically connected to a router. Using Wi-Fi makes installation easier.

We recommend using the Wi-Fi auxiliary camera models when installing near the main dashcam, such as on the side mirrors.

In other locations, we recommend connecting using a wired solution . See The dashcam Wi-Fi and hotspot for more information.

Note

We have tested connecting the dashcam with up to four auxiliary cameras of either only wireless or only wired models.

Wired auxiliary cameras

Wired auxiliary cameras are hardwired to a router that is paired with the dashcam. If the auxiliary camera is going to be mounted in any location farther from the main dashcam than the area of the side mirrors, use the wired option. This increases reliability.

Note

We have tested connecting the dashcam with up to four auxiliary cameras of either only wireless or only wired models.

Wrap-mount auxiliary cameras

Note

Wrap-mount cameras are also known as side cameras.

Wrap-mount cameras come with hose clamps and a silicone pad. They are mounted on the mirrors of the vehicle.

Flush-mount cameras are also known as rear cameras.

Flush-mount cameras come with a mounting bracket. They are screwed onto the vehicle, generally at the back.

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