Greetings to all! Today I want to start a cycle of records about making a hidden DVR for my car — Citroen C4 of the second generation.
To begin with, I do not want to hang a simple registrar. I am one of those people who can not stand wires, mess and disorder. The registrar, stuck to the glass, with a hanging wire to the cigarette lighter — for me like a red rag. Therefore, the idea to hide the recorder from the eyes arose almost immediately after the purchase of the car.
To implement these goals, I began to study the market and see what he can offer me. Of course, there are expensive DataKam, BlackVue and others. But, none of these models, claiming a hidden installation, I did not find. And, since the factory look is of paramount importance to me, I started searching in a different plane. I caught a glimpse of such a thing:
Already better. Already two remote miniature cameras, one common plank, all sorts of chips and lotions. But its cost is comparable to the fuselage from Boeing, and judging by the reviews, it obviously does not work out its money. Constant freezes, failures, brakes, and this all put a cross on this option. But I do not give up, I continue my search and find the following variant:
Taak, here I was already interested. The AliExpress is full of such recorders for a variety of cars. They are put instead of the standard housing of the rain sensor, they need to be selected for their model. But, there are such kind of registrars are universal, which are put on all cars without a rain sensor. In general, I was inspired, looked at the reviews, examples of recording from such registrars and was pleased.
The logger in the rain sensor housing is the best solution. No wires, the recorder is hidden from the eyes, it performs its function and does not bother anyone. Plus, these registrars are that they can communicate with the phone via Wi-Fi, and at the right time, you can just connect to it from your smartphone, save yourself the phone with the right video and leave the recorder again in peace. Super! That's what I need.
He began to search for such a registrar for Citroen C4. How long, shortly, I searched the registrar for my car, but never met me on the expanses of Chinese sites. For some reason, the Chinese cheated Citroen C4.
But, from the idea to integrate the recorder into the casing, I did not deny. If the Chinese did not, I will. A plan was born in my head:
1. Buy a Chinese registrar.
2. To gut the entire electronic stuffing.
3. Integrate the filling into your casing.
This plan has become decisive for further work. I went to the car to appreciate the space for creativity in my casing.
At first glance, there is where to turn around
The casing consists of two halves. And to open it with minimal consequences, you need to pretty much mess around. This is a separate story, I will not dwell on it. I will only say that without consequences I could not do it: I broke off two fixators.
An autopsy showed that there are not so many places.
Based on the received data on the amount of free space in the rain sensor, we begin to search for a suitable recorder. I searched for a long time and painfully. From the photos I tried to understand how the recorder is arranged inside. I needed a modular structure so that the camera was separate, the brain separately.
And I stumbled upon it:
Exactly what is needed! Moreover, with the closest study it turned out that this registrar is sold with a second remote camera, which is attached from behind and removes everything that happens in the rear. In general, the beauty! Immediately ordered. Hands were combed even more strongly.
The registrar flew to me two weeks and arrived here in such a box:
Inside is such a set:
Without hesitation, I take a screwdriver in my hands and untwist the acquisition:
Super! Fully modular structure and miniature size of components. We go into the car, try on the components.
Experimentally determine the location of components inside the casing. Initially, I wanted to place the camera module directly in front of the rain sensor, and drill a hole in the casing. But the camera turned out to be a bit more space for this idea. And the bus from the camera to the board is too short. Therefore, it was decided to keep the body of the camera itself. And in the casing under it cut a hole. The board itself will be fixed between the rain sensor and the mirror. Also in the casing, you need to cut a slot under the memory card.
There are not many questions with the back camera. Fitting has shown, that the best place for its fastening — from above of a glass of a back door.
After all these procedures there was a final plan for the manufacture of a hidden recorder:
1. Cut a hole in the casing for the camera module.
2. Make a platform for fixing the camera module.
3. Make a platform for fixing the DVR board.
4. Cut the slot to access the memory card.
5. Wrap all the wires with an anti-script.
6. Install the cameras and the board in their place.
7. Conduct wiring through the salon and connect the recorder.
To be continued…
About how I ruthlessly cut and gutted the case of the logger and the rain sensor casing I will tell next time. Subscribe to not miss.
