Linas.P posted a topic in Lexus IS 250 / Lexus IS 250C Club / Lexus IS 220D & IS 200D ClubAs you might have seen I had some issues with vandals recently. I have DVR with "Parking Mode", which works on basis of g-force/sound and motion detection. Actually, works quite well as far as I have tested, but the camera itself only has a capacitor and even if there would be a tiny battery that won't last an hour. Option 1: I can hardwire it.... but there are issues with that 1. acid batteries are not meant to be cycled 2. even if I disregard that I might end up with a flat battery. I know there are battery protectors, but they kind of defeat point of parking mode. The question here - how long would you think the battery would last with a simple "hardwire and forget approach"? Option 2: is to buy those fancy ... or to be specific "that" fancy Cellink B pack... but it is £169 and claims that it gives only 24 extra hours. which is nowhere near sufficient for me. Anyone have experience using something similar? I have tried using 10000 mAh battery bank, but it annoys me because it is "smart" i.e. it does not charge while being charged itself and does not charge automatically without turning it "on" and it seems it sometimes gets confused with low power consumption parking mode and turns off by itself to preserve energy (very useful). When it work it gives ~12-14h of parking mode footage thought. Really my goals is to have parking mode for 3-5 days which doing rough estimates on how long battery bank last would require ~ like 100000 mAh, Cellink B has 76000 but not sure why it last only 24h.. (maybe I should get Tesla for this kind of thing and just tap into main battery :D)
Paul v. posted a topic in RX 300 / RX 350 / RX 400h / RX 200t / RX 450h ClubDear all, for a while now I wanted to install a 4ch DVR in the car, and connect the existing reversing camera, and the camera in the left mirror, as well as add a new camera installed on the rear view mirror, and possibly one looking at the right side of the car. Whilst adding new cameras and installing the DVR is not a problem, I was wondering if anyone tried interfacing with the existing cameras? are they analogue, compost - or some proprietary format? Many thanks, Paul
