Vehicle Safety specialist, Vision Techniques, is pioneering an exciting new mobile CCTV product, the Rear View Mirror Monitor, which acts as a deterrent to opportunist thieves and reverse camera safety device.
This clever device means vehicles can be left unattended without the worry of the reversing camera monitor being stolen by opportunist thieves.
The ultra-compact reverse camera system, which thieves may think is a GPS system, is transformed so it looks like an ordinary rear view mirror.
One of the main uses of mobile CCTV systems is to prevent accidents using rear vision reversing cameras.
Steve Perrin, manager at Vision Techniques, said: “It’s obvious that reversing cameras dramatically reduce accidents in larger vehicles.
“Around 150 mobile CCTV systems are stolen from vehicles such as trucks and vans every year. Integrating the reversing camera system into the rear view mirror is an innovative idea that reduces theft and saves space.
“And it’s working. The number of thefts has decreased.
“Reversing Mirror Monitors are very handy theft prevention tools. They are roughly the same price as other reversing monitors.”
The highly reliable and robust mobile CCTV system has a proven track record for quality and durability.
It is a 4.2” profile-wide monitor which is ideal for vans, trucks, HGVs, safety and security.
As well as a reversing and rear view camera, the mirror monitor can come with a ‘bullet camera’ – a two inch long camera which is ideal for small spaces.
Mr Perrin said: “Like most of Vision Techniques’ mobile CCTV systems, the Mirror Monitor dramatically increases vehicle and pedestrian safety.
The launch of the product has been welcomed by local authorities as a useful anti-theft tool for those who need a reversing camera in their vehicles.
Vision Techniques is a leading supplier of the latest security and safety equipment for all types of vehicles – including vans, lorries, trucks, forklifts and HGVs – throughout the country.
It supplies to hundreds of local authorities – as well as waste disposal vehicle manufacturers and vehicle body-builders.
In addition to mobile CCTV reversing camera systems the company produces vehicle devices such as Digital Video Recorders (DVR), Vehicle Radar, Auto Braking Systems, GPS Tracking and RFID Technology.
