Baby Camera

Hi from Australia.

I have a new '14 Jeep GC Overland. Wondering if any one has a solution for a in-car baby camera? Would ideally love to be able to see my baby from the front display monitor.

Thanks in advance....

Get a LockPick and add cameras at your discretion.

Re: Baby Camera

I notice this is from a while back, so you've probably already gotten this figured out. But in the event that you haven't, I had a similar situation and found what I think is a great workaround. I purchased and installed the LockPick CHR-550 because of the flexibility it offers, and utilized one of the additional camera inputs to be able to see my rear-facing carseat. All I did was jam a mini CCTV camera between the seat and the headrest, pointed directly at the baby, and then whenever I want to peak at if he's asleep or not I just navigate through the CHR550 menu and select that camera and the image pops up on the dash screen.

If you're interested in more info about what I did, just let me know, but one tip is to make sure you use a camera with IR lights so you can have images at night as well as during the day.

The cops noticed the camera when I was getting my carseat inspected and they thought is was a great idea, mostly for two reasons both to do with putting mirrors on the seats to see the kids. Firstly, they say the mirrors are a hazard in the event that the carseat moves in a crash (which it is supposed to do) and the baby's head could impact the mirror attached to the seat - not sure I buy this one too much. Secondly, they say that when using mirrors to see rear-facing kids in carseats people tend to distort the vehicle's rear-view mirror, which is a safety concern. They said they would much rather me looking at the dash screen than obsuring my vision to the rear.

Anyways, just let me know if you want more info.
