How to install it?

Entire installation process is simple and doesn’t require any professional help. First step is to install Kent CamEye’s device on your smartphone and just follow the simple instructions by scanning the code from your device. Make sure the SIM card is inserted in the correct position as shown on the device. Once switched on, the device cannot be switched off until its battery is fully drained.

Mounting the device in the car is as simple as installing any other mobile-holder. An appropriate spot would be the top centre of the car’s front windscreen. Just make sure the internal mirror doesn’t obstruct the camera’s field of view. Attach the suction mount that gets a sticky surface for ensuring tight contact with the windscreen. Then, loosen the plastic nut on the main device and push the ball section of the mount into the main unit. You can tighten the nut once you set the cameras, which also can be adjusted on the device.

Once this is done, just plug in the USB cable in and connect it to the 12V charger. The red LED will blink showing low battery and will turn green and blink when charging. On the move, the blinking stops with a solid green display indicating it’s recording the trip. If there’s no network it will turn blue. The long USB wire can be properly routed with the help of the kit.
