  • Brandmotion Releases New Additions to the SummitView Off-Road Product Line.

    Southfield, Michigan: Brandmotion, a leading innovator of automotive safety technology is continuing its strong ties with the off-road community by providing two new additions to the SummitView™ Off-Road product line. The SummitView™ Jeep Wrangler JK Front and Rear Camera System and the SummitView™ Jeep Wrangler JK Quad-Camera with DVR System  are two off-roading solutions that remove visual barriers making everyday driving and trail-riding safer.  

    “At Brandmotion we focus in providing our customers with the best safety, mobility, and convenience features for their vehicles”, said Jeff Varick, President and Founder of Brandmotion. “Our camera systems provide enhanced visibility for a variety of situations - everything from hill and rock climbing to parking in tight spaces.”

    Brandmotion's Jeep Wrangler JK Quad-Camera with DVR System

    Often times, off-roaders will use a spotter to help guide them through difficult obstacles. With Brandmotion’s SummitView™ Jeep Wrangler JK Quad-Camera with DVR System the driver can now see four different views from inside the vehicle.  The system acts as an internal spotter helping you pick the right line when trail riding. Our Rock Cameras provide drivers with a 185° viewing angle in front of each wheel.  It also includes a front winch camera that can be mounted above, below, or behind the winch fairlead or directly onto the bumper. Our patented adjustable CMOS rear-view camera is specially designed for aftermarket tires and has a 170° viewing angle that helps eliminate blind spots. Each kit comes with a 7” DVR display which shows all four views simultaneously making it the ultimate technical trail driving aid.

    The SummitView™ Jeep Wrangler JK Front and Rear Camera System provides a 185° view in front of the vehicle as well as 170° view in rear. The adjustable CMOS rear-view camera comes with optional parking lines which are automatically displayed on your factory display radio when the vehicle is in reverse. With this seamlessly integrated two-camera system there is no need to add buttons or switches to toggle between camera views.  All front cameras and Rock Camera systems are equipped with waterproof connectors, rugged nylon housing, and they can easily be painted to match the vehicle’s color.

    “We thoroughly enjoy being a part of the extended Jeep Wrangler community,” said Varick. “Our desire is to enable safe and memorable experiences which drives us to continue to design and integrate safety technology into existing vehicles. With our Front and Rear Camera System or our Quad-Camera System, there are no limits to the adventures that await.”

  • Working to Reduce Blind Spot Related Accidents: Brandmotion Releases New Radar Blind Spot System with Cross Traffic Detection

     

    Southfield, Michigan: The importance of carefully checking your vehicle’s blind spots has been ingrained in our minds since our first time behind the wheel. Yet even with the proper training, these visual impairments still pose a serious threat to drivers and other motorists.

    Blind-spot related auto accidents occur all too often in the U.S. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2013 it was estimated that there were roughly 840,000 blind-spot related accidents.* However, a recent report shows that radar blind-spot and collision avoidance systems are helping to reduce that number. In 2015, Jessica Cicchino, Vice President of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) analyzed 5,000 accidents that radar blind spot warning is designed to prevent. She found that the rate of single vehicle, side swipe collisions was 11% lower in vehicles with these warning systems.**

     

    Although it is apparent that radar blind spot systems help reduce traffic accidents, the adoption of this technology has been slow. According to Cicchino, just 9% of 2017 vehicles offered Radar Blind Spot as standard equipment.** Brandmotion’s continued mission to reduce automobile accidents by offering consumers retrofit safety technology onto their existing vehicles has propelled them to release their newly-upgraded Radar Blind Spot System - with universal application for vehicles 2007 and newer!

    Brandmotion's New Radar Blind Spot System with Cross Traffic Detection

    Brandmotion’s new Radar Blind Spot System not only monitors your blind-spots for safe lane changes, but can also detect approaching objects from the side while your vehicle is in reverse with it's class-exclusive cross traffic-detection. The system eliminates 85% of false warning triggers by comparing your vehicle’s speed to the speed of a detected object to accurately assess whether the object in your blind-spot poses a risk.

    When a real risk is identified, the system triggers an audible and visual warning alert, preventing dangerous lane changes. The system’s visual indicators are integrated cleanly at the bottom of the windshield pillar with no exposed wires. The radar’s detection range has been increased to 40 feet  (about the same length as a semi-trailer). The new system’s units are also 50% smaller than the original’s units, allowing it to easily package on more vehicles.

    Brandmotion’s blind-spot technology is helping to make vehicles safer and prevent blind-spot related accidents. Brandmotion’s RDBS-1500 can improve the safety of you, your passengers, and those you encounter on the road. When it comes to safety, convenience, and innovation, you can always count on Brandmotion as your trusted source of integrated safety technology.

  • Eliminate Damage to Your Vehicle When Parking: Brandmotion Releases Switchable Front or Rear 4 Sensor Parking System

    Southfield, Michigan: Maybe you have experienced a situation where you pull up to a curb and hear that ominous “SCRAAAAPE”, as your lower fascia hits the curb in front of you. Or a situation where you back into that tight parallel parking space and hear the fateful “THUD” of your back bumper striking the vehicle behind you. These types of “fender benders” happen to countless drivers in simple parking situations. Whether your vehicle has restricted visibility, a low front-end, or you find yourself having to park in tight spaces, Brandmotion has an innovative solution to help you avoid expensive damage to your vehicle’s front or back end.

    Brandmotion’s Switchable Front or Rear Parking System includes 4 parking sensors that can be programmed to work on the front or rear of your vehicle. The kit includes an LED display with a visual range indicator that shows the distance to an object. The display’s built in speaker will sound an audible alert that will increase in volume as your vehicle gets closer to an object (curb, wall, or another vehicle). With multiple mounting options, the display can be placed upside down and in the back of your vehicle so that you can view it in your rear-view mirror while backing up.

    The kit also includes 2 sets of sensor adapters used for changing the sensor angle at 4° and 8°, allowing for placements on varying vehicle bumper shapes. The kit can also be used with a spare tire on the rear of your vehicle, and can be calibrated to account for the width of the spare tire.

    Brandmotion’s new Switchable Parking Sensor is an invaluable and easily installed solution that eliminates the risk of damaging your vehicle when trying to park. When it comes to keeping you and your vehicle safe, you can always count on Brandmotion as your trusted source of integrated safety technology.

  • A Solution for Backing Your Trailer: Brandmotion Releases New Trailer Camera System

     

    Southfield, Michigan: Backing up a trailer can be a complicated and lengthy process. Maybe you have been in a similar situation; one filled with confusion and a good amount of frustration between you and your spotter. However, the difficulty in backing up your trailer arises from one main issue: The inability for you to see behind the trailer you are towing.

    Imagine if you had complete vision behind your trailer. That exhausting process between you and your spotter could be completely eliminated, and you could have your trailer where you want it in a matter of seconds. Brandmotion’s Trailer Camera System is an innovative towing solution that dramatically improves your ability to back a trailer into the desired spot.

    Brandmotion's Trailer Camera offers the first auto - connect integration to factory display radios.

    Speaking on the company’s recent product release, Brandmotion Founder and President Jeff Varick said, “We’re very excited to introduce the first auto-connect trailer towing camera system for GM, Ford, and Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge/Ram factory display radios.  Trailer cameras aren’t new, but we’ve taken the time and hassle out of connecting a trailer camera to a tow vehicle, by offering the first auto-connect integration to factory display radios. Simply connect your trailer with an installed Brandmotion trailer camera to your truck or SUV tow vehicle, and the system instantly switches from displaying the factory tailgate camera to the Brandmotion trailer camera.

    Brandmotion's Trailer Camera

    The new camera system is an excellent solution for power-sport, marine, RV, farming, and equestrian trailers. Each system comes with a waterproof, rust proof, vehicle mounted quick connect cable, and a waterproof, shockproof stand alone camera.  Brandmotion also offers a unique dual camera System with a monitor display; One for backing up, and one for watching the contents of your trailer. This is an ideal application for checking on valuable cargo without leaving the vehicle while still seeing behind your trailer (auto-detect is available on factory display integrations only). When it comes to safety, convenience, and innovation, you can always count on Brandmotion as your aftermarket, vehicle safety electronics provider.

  • SEMA 2015

    As we close out 2015 and look back on another successful appearance at SEMA, we are grateful for bringing home an award, but also a confirmation of customer needs and evolving market trends.

    moty award greyscale

    Brandmotion was crowned SEMA PRO Council’s 2015-2016 Manufacturer of the Year at SEMA this year.  We were humbled and maybe a little surprised to be taking this award home as a company that just celebrated its 10th anniversary.  But, we take it as strong encouragement to keep doing what we have been doing in terms of product quality, design and customer care. Thanks to all of you who voted for us.

    booth

    At the show, we debuted a range of new vehicle safety accessories, including one that takes Brandmotion into the emerging Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) category.

    ADAS with highlighted vehicles

    New safety technology such as forward crash avoidance and lane departure warning devices are becoming more common on vehicles rolling off assembly lines. For vehicles without the technology, the ADAS+ is an easy-to-install accessory that gives drivers the same features they’d find on newer vehicles with high-end trim levels. The ADAS+ provides drivers with frontal collision and lane departure warnings utilizing a sophisticated HD camera. In the event of an accident, the system also features a DVR that automatically creates a video event when the unit senses an impact, or, manual recording with the touch of a button.

    F150 with 360 circle2

    As back up cameras become mandatory over the next few years, new camera systems will improve on the benefits and user experience. Brandmotion’s newest 360º Vision System provides drivers with a full 360º view of their vehicle’s surroundings.  The first system released is for 2004-2015 Ford F-Series trucks, with a number of other vehicle-specific solutions in the coming months, including the Jeep Wrangler.  For that vehicle, a 360 vision system bring huge additional benefits when trail riding or hill climbing.   Imagine, no rock or tree branch spotter required!

    4550 edited

    In addition to ADAS+, our new Mobileye display mirror allows vehicle owners with the Mobileye 560 System to swap out their existing Eyewatch display for an Authentic OEM frameless mirror with embedded Mobileye display. The new mirror gives the vehicle a factory look with no exposed cables or adhesive-mounted, dash displays.  Seamless integration for a popular aftermarket collision avoidance system.

    mustang approaching curb

    Rounding out a strong new product lineup at SEMA was our updated Curb Alert parking sensor, the Curb Alert Park View PRO and its complementary line of new dual camera display interfaces for factory displays. Park View PRO features infrared parking sensing with the addition of a signal output to activate an interface’s second (front facing) camera input. A view of what’s in front of the vehicle is activated as the vehicle approaches a curb, or wall, letting the driver know exactly how close their vehicle’s front end is.

    These unique new vehicle accessories are part of Brandmotion’s evolving product line-up. Expect more new and exciting announcements as the year progresses, and thank you again from all of us, for making us the SEMA PRO Council 2015-16 Manufacturer of the Year.

  • Biggest Opportunities in Rear Vision for 2015

    article-1094111-02C8B5AD000005DC-646_468x286

    Even though the federal mandate for standard rear vision in all vehicles by mid-2018 inches closer, there are a large number of new vehicles still rolling off assembly lines without a rear view camera. Back up cameras are still in demand from the aftermarket, and will be for the foreseeable future.

    As a service to our great installers, the team here at Brandmotion has put together a complete list of the top Rear Vision opportunities by vehicle make, model and trim level. This guide will help indicate where the market is for aftermarket backup cameras. Below are just a handful of the makes and models with gaps in standard rear vision.

    Chrysler / Dodge / Jeep Vehicles
    2012-jeep-wrangler-unlimited-altitude-edition-photo-ExtremeTerrain

    Chrysler group vehicles present one of the largest markets for rear vision. Leading the group in rear vision opportunity gaps is the Jeep Wrangler. There are currently no rear vision cameras offered from the factory for the Wrangler, and with 175,000 of them sold in the US in 2014, that’s a BIG market. Rounding out the list are the Dodge Charger and Journey, as well as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, all with $1,000+ rear view camera packages.

    RAM
    ramtruck

    Installers dealing with RAM trucks will be happy to see a large money making opportunity for the popular line of pickups. Cameras are offered as options on all but the higher trim levels (Sport and Laramie). These systems can range in price from a few hundred dollars (if there is already a display screen) to over $1,000 for packages including the display and camera. Installers should expect to see rear vision business from the lower trim level Ram trucks hitting the road throughout 2015.

    GM / Chevy / Cadillac Vehicles
    chevrolet-lineup-b

    You’ll find a host of General Motors vehicles still coming without cameras. Among the most notable are the Chevy Silverado, Malibu, Impala and Cruze. Impala buyers could be paying upwards of $1,100 for a factory camera and those looking to purchase a Malibu will find camera options with a range in prices from $1,125 to $1,850. For truck buyers considering a new Silverado, they’ll be looking at upgrading to LS trim to just have the option to purchase a camera for $325, other camera packages start at $1,000 to $1,600 for the Work Truck and LT/LTZ trim levels respectively.

    Customers buying a high end vehicle like the Cadillac ATS will also be disappointed to see that rear vision isn’t standard on all trim levels. They can expect an extra $1,435 for the CUE and Surround Sound package.

    These vehicles represent a large portion of GM vehicle sales, perfect for the installer or expeditor targeting these dealerships to increase rear vision sales.

    Ford / Lincoln
    2014 Ford F-150 STX SuperCrew

    While Ford has started to include cameras with most of its fleet, the new F150 still leaves room for installers to capitalize on rear vision sales within the XL trim level. Back up cameras for the F150 command a $1,800 to $2,000 price tag!

    Audi
    range

    There are a surprising number of opportunities for Audi vehicles! New car buyers could be paying upwards of $4000 to get camera on a SQ5 and many thousands of dollars for other vehicles from the manufacturer. With many of the vehicles coming without a rear view camera option, installers will have a field day offering cameras to protect high end vehicles from backover accidents!

    BMW
    2013_bmw_m6_us-version_38_1600x1200

    BMW vehicles have a surprising amount of open gaps for rear view cameras in all vehicle models except the 6 and 7 Series. Buyers could be looking at a $950 to $1,800 price tag, with some models approaching $4,000 to add a camera and other features!

    Brandmotion is proud to supply the professional installer with solutions for all these vehicles listed above and more!

  • The How-To Guide For Adding Wireless Charging to Apple Devices

    iPhone Charging Sleeves

    Samsung may have beat Apple to integrating wireless charging in its devices, but that doesn’t mean iPhone users have to be tethered to a wall charger. There are a wide variety of adapters that Brandmotion carries allowing the iPhone to use a wireless charger.

    The iPhone 4 and 4S

    1106long This low profile charging sleeve is ideal for adding wireless charging capabilities to older iPhone 4/4S models.

    To add Qi wireless charging to the iPhone 4, the phone requires the addition of a protective sleeve with embedded charging coils. Featuring a rubber-like texture, the enhanced grip helps keep the phone in your hands, preventing catastrophic drops. (Part # FDMC-1106).

    The iPhone 5 and 5S

    1108 on iphone The iPhone 5/5S coil lays flat on the back of the phone when a protective case is added thanks to its ribbon coil.

    When the new iPhone 5 and 5S were released, they shifted to a thinner Lightning charger, which in turn allowed for even thinner wireless charging adapters. The iPhone 5/5S can use one of two options, a thin credit card sized adapter coil or a protective charging sleeve. The thin adapter coil plugs into the Lightning port and thanks to its thin ribbon cable, it folds neatly behind the phone allowing users to retain their favorite case (Part # FDMC-1108).

    1107 and 1105 Left: FDMC-1105 iPhone 5/5S case. Right: FDMC-1107 iPhone 5/5S case w/ micro USB pass though.

    The iPhone 5/5S can also utilize thin protective sleeves that the phone slides into, which feature an embedded coil similar to the iPhone 4 option. The FDMC-1107 case has a built in Lightning plug that fits into the phone’s charging port and from there has a micro USB pass through to allow charging with a wall outlet as well as a Qi wireless charging coil embedded into the case (Part #’s FDMC-1105 and FDMC-1107).

    The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

    1128 with arrow The FDMC-1126 (for iPhone 6) and FDMC-1128 (for iPhone 6 Plus) both feature a slide out Lightning plug for easy access to the charging port.

    With the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus comes a very attractive option to add wireless charging capabilities. A premium, ultra thin sleeve with rubberized coating gives the case a great look with enhanced grip, a great feature for the large bodied phones (Part #’s FDMC-1126 for iPhone 6 and FDMC-1128 for iPhone 6 Plus). The real benefit of the case is the embedded wireless charging coil with an innovative slide out Lightning plug that allows quick access to the charging port if the phone user decides they need to plug in a wall charger.

    1125 on iphone 6 A longer ribbon coil on the FDMC-1125 allows the charging coil to sit closer to the phone's center, letting the phone sit balanced on a charging pad.

    If the user has a favorite case they prefer over the charging sleeve, the thin charging coil that plugs into the phone's port and folds around the back is also available and works with a wide variety of cases (Part # FDMC-1125).

    Regardless of the Apple device, Brandmotion is committed to offering iPhone users an attractive and functional wireless charging adapter, so they too can enjoy the convenience of wireless charging!

  • A day in the life of a wireless charger

    How many times have you been on your phone in bed and have had to unplug the device just to use it comfortably? Only to find the charger is somewhere behind a piece of furniture when you go looking for it again. The plug might as well have been across the room since you now have to get up to find it tucked away in a tight space.

    Thankfully, there is now a solution that although small, enhances the user experience of a smartphone considerably. We’re talking of course about wireless charging. No longer do you need to fumble with a cable in the dark, or go searching for it every time you need a little juice. The charging pad is in the same spot, every time, just as you had left it.

    A typical day for a smartphone user with a wireless charger might look something like this:

    iPhone_Home Charging6:00AM  Your alarm goes off, you roll over and pick up your phone off its charging pad. You roll back over to comfortably check your phone, no annoying cord to keep you on the edge of your bed.

    8:00AM  You’re now in your car settling into the usual morning commute. Normally you would have a tangled charger hanging somewhere from your center console, probably taking up a cup holder, but thankfully you’ve just installed a FreedomCharge phone charging pad. No cables in sight.

    The phone’s battery is hovering at a comfortable 95% but you want to listen to music and that can shave off a few percentage points from the battery level, so you set the phone on FreedomCharge and continue to stream your music, all without any cables.

    Angled Top View9:00AM  Arriving at the office, your phone’s battery has returned to 100%. You get to your desk and start your day.

    12:00PM  By the time lunch rolls around, you’ve been at the office for a few hours and your phone has been used a moderate amount to answer any forwarded calls, text messages and email. All the activity has started to chip away at your battery, but luckily you have a wireless charging pad on your desk.
