The Power Magic Pro Hardwire Kit is a Battery Discharge Prevention Device that connects to your car battery and provides constant power to your Dash Cam when the engine is turned off. Essentially the hardwire kit is connected into your fuse box and your Dash Cam cig lighter power cord plugs into the female accessory socket on the hardwire kit. This is an essential kit if you wish to utilise the Parking Surveillance Mode function on your Dash Cam (check if your Dash Cam has this feature).
In Parking Surveillance Mode, your Dash Cam needs a constant power supply and will detect any motion or impact and record the footage while you are away from the car. The Power Magic Pro monitors your car battery voltage and when the battery reaches the low voltage set point set by you, it will automatically cut power to the Dash Cam preventing your battery from draining and jump starting.
*Note 1: All Dash Cams will operate without a hardwire kit via the supplied power cord plugged into your cigarette lighter socket. You just won’t be able to use the Parking Mode feature powering the Dash Cam this way as it will shut down when the engine is off.
*Note 2: It is highly recommended that the Power Magic Pro be installed by a certified Auto Electrician. Ensure no cords on the hardwire kit or Dash Cam are cut during installation. Cutting wires voids any warranty.
*Note 3: Hardwiring any item to your fusebox could void a new car warranty depending on the manufacturer and dealer. Ensure you check this with your car manufacturer and dealer before purchasing and installing. Ensure you also check with your car manufacturer if this hardwire kit is compatible with your vehicle electrical system before purchasing and installing.
