1. Q: Why is NightRide mounted on the outside of the car?

    NightRide uses far wave infrared technology. Far wave infrared enables NightRide to “see” up to one mile ahead, but far wave infrared cannot see through glass. This is why NightRide mounts to the outside of your vehicle.

  2. Q: How is NightRide powered?

    NightRide is powered through a wired connection to a vehicle battery or auxiliary battery.

  3. Q: How easy is it to install NightRide?

    Some NightRide models are self installable. We provide the instructions, you provide 5 minutes of your time. Other models require professional installation.

  4. Q: How do I see infrared images?

    NightRide captures infrared images and streams them via WiFi or Ethernet connection to our phone, tablet or laptop. There's the heads up display option (HUD) that projects images from the screen onto the clear film affixed to lower portion of the windshield. As you drive, the infrared images are displayed continuously onto the screen of HUD for your convenience.

  5. Q: Can I view the NightRide camera on my vehicle's navigation or info screen?

    While it is certainly possible to display the footage from NightRide on your vehicle's dash screen, we do not believe this is a safe way to use NightRide. We prefer that users position their display device at heads up level so you don’t take your eyes off the road.

  6. Q: What is the difference between night vision and infrared?

    Infrared based devices operate by measuring the amount of heat emitted by people or objects and creating a visual depiction of that energy. Night vision works from your headlights. NightRide sees beyond the scope of your headlights, showing you what your headlights don't.

  7. Q: Do I need an internet connection?

    No Internet connection is required to view the stream. The NightRide camera acts as a local hotspot.
