There are two options for powering the DR-200.
1) Plug the power adapter into your vehicle's cigarette or 12v power outlet.
2) Hard-wire the camera into your vehicles fuse box using the extra wiring harness.
Installation normally takes less than an hour with the cigarette lighter power-supply. You can also hard-wire the camera with the "fuse box harness". A hard-wired camera can record video after you park your car to monitor surroundings.
To preserve your car battery, the camera automatically shuts off if the battery drops below 12-volts.
