Driver safety products are getting more and more popular every day as people are getting exposed to them. The Audio Garage has been a leader in providing safety products to new and used vehicles since our inception in 2004. Our company is focused on providing you with reliable, easy-to-use products designed to make your drive safer and more enjoyable, and protect you and your loved ones from injury.
Backup cameras have become one of our biggest categories, but they aren’t new for us. Did you know that we were installing cameras all the way back in 2004, when most people didn’t know they existed?
We can integrate a camera into your vehicle in three popular ways. If you already have a color screen in your dash, we can often install an interface, allowing us to show the backup camera image right there on your dash. In other vehicles, we can often replace your existing in-dash stereo system with a new one that has a color screen, giving you a backup camera image that looks factory-equipped. The third option involves adding an external screen, with the most popular method being a replacement rearview mirror with an integrated color monitor. Under normal circumstances, the mirror looks normal, but when you put the vehicle in reverse, the camera image is displayed in easy view of the driver.
We also have front-mounted cameras that are good for parking vehicles with low front bumpers. For the ultimate in camera safety, we can install a four-camera system, giving you 360-degree views around your vehicle.
If you own a fifth-wheel hitch or a trailer, we can also install a camera to help you when towing.
Parking sensors are another popular safety device. These are small sensors that get flushed into your vehicle and use audible beepers to alert you when you get close to an object. They provide a simple but very effective way to avoid an accident or injury. Many people combine sensors with a camera for the ultimate in protection.
The Audio Garage also has blind-spot monitoring systems and forward-collision avoidance systems. The blind spot systems can work with a sonar-based sensor that gives you an audible and visual alert if someone is in your blind spot, and we also have side view camera systems that activate whenever you turn on your blinkers. These give you a visual view of your blind spot, helping you avoid a costly and possibly serious accident.
DVR systems are another safety device gaining in popularity. They involve a front camera or a front and rear camera system that records whenever the vehicle ignition is on. In the case of an accident or other altercation, you have a visual recording of the incident, often helping prove your innocence when you have been accused of a wrongful act. They can also be used to identify someone vandalizing or trying to steal your vehicle. Many of our systems come with WiFi to allow easy downloading of the video file to your smartphone.
GPS tracking systems have always been known to be able to track the location of a vehicle. Did you know they can also alert you when your vehicle arrives at a certain spot, is driven above a certain speed or moves outside a given window of time? All of this information can be accessed from a smartphone, tablet or computer, possibly eliminating a problem before it happens.
Rear seat cameras are a great product when you have small children and want to keep an eye on them while you are driving.
