How It Works

One of our installers will arrive on the arranged date and time, at the location you have specified. Depending on the vehicle type and camera model, the installation may take from 1 to 3 hours. Once completed, we'll walk you through your dash cam features and get you familiar with its operation.

Our fitter will advise on the optimal dash camera units location for your vehicle to achieve discreteness and the best recording results. We also make sure you have the required apps installed on your smartphone and properly configured (if applicable).

Hardwiring and Parking Surveillance

We install the majority of dash cameras using the Fuse Tap Adapters (included in the installation fee), which allow us to hardwire the camera without cutting any wires. If it is not possible to tap into a fuse board then the installer will look for a suitable alternative power source from which to take the permanent live feed. While in most cases such installation does not invalidate the warranty on the vehicle (if any), it is the customer's responsibility to check this with their dealership prior to scheduling the installation.

Another thing you will need to decide on is whether you want the camera to come on and off with the ignition (driving use only) or if you want the camera also to record while parked (for models which support Parking Recording). If you want to benefit from parking recording, you will need to add to your order a Power Management Device. Depending on your requirements and budget, it may be a Hardwire Kit with Low-Voltage Protection or a dedicated Battery Pack. Please ask us in case you're unsure what option suits you best.

FAQ

How much do you charge for installing a dash cam?
We offer flat pricing for dash cam installation:
  • $120 for fitting and hardwiring a single-channel (front-only) dash cam.
  • $220 for fitting and hardwiring a dual-channel (front and rear) dash cam.
  • A surcharge of $30 will be charged for installing dash cameras not purchased from DriverCam.
Yes, it's that simple. The prices above do include GST but do not include the dash cam and accessories. Also, we do not charge for travel and for materials we use for installation.

Please note that while the pricing above applies for most installations, there are exceptions (motorhomes, UTEs with canopy, etc.). If you'd like to request a written quote, please fill in the installation enquiry form below and we'll be in touch asap.

Can you install a dash cam that was purchased not through DriverCam?

Yes, we certainly can install your own dash cam but please note that we apply a surcharge of $30 on top of our regular installation price for installing dash cameras not purchased from us. While such installation is still covered by our 12-months workmanship warranty, unfortunately, we can't provide a warranty for dash cam and accessories that you source elsewhere.

I want to remove or transfer my dash cam into a new car. Can you do this?

Yes, we charge $90 for removing a single-channel and $120 for a dual-channel dash cam and then our regular installation fee for the fitting. However, if you have both cars side by side and we can do the camera transfer (both the removal and installation in one go), a discount of 10% will be applied.

What is the lead time for booking an installation with you?

It depends on our installation backlog at the time but usually, it's around 5-7 calendar days.

What are your business hours for installations and do you do weekends?

Most of our installations are scheduled between 10 am and 6 pm (this, however, may vary depending on your whereabouts) and yes, we do install on weekends.

What does the installation include?

Please see the installation breakdown here.

What does the dash cam induction session cover?
Once the installation is completed, we do a brief walkthrough of your new camera. It takes 15-20 minutes and usually covers the following:
  • Location of the dash camera units and installed accessories.
  • Demonstration of how the driving, parking (if applicable) and emergency recording modes work.
  • Getting you familiar with the dash cam interface, mounting and angle adjustment.
  • Pairing the camera with your smartphone (if applicable).
  • Other camera-specific tips and tricks.
What is the warranty on the installation?

Our workmanship warranty on the installation is 12 months.

Can I bring my car to you and would the installation be cheaper in this case?

Since we're a mobile service, we do not have a physical workshop. However, we can install at any public (ideally, covered) car park Auckland-wide as long it's spacious enough to open the vehicle's doors fully at least on one side. The price for the installation is the same regardless of the location.

I live outside Auckland. Can you come to me to install?

We do install outside Auckland occasionally (Whangarei, Hamilton, Tauranga), however, we do this when we have more than one customer in the area hence it may take some time before we come to you. Because of this, most customers would arrange the installation to take place during their next Auckland visit (1-2 weeks notice would be appreciated).
