2 For 1 Back Up Camera

I ordered the EMMAKO back up camera off Amazon. I pulled it out yesterday to read the installation instructions and found Step#1 to be quite interesting.

I emailed them last night and got a prompt reply at 2:30am to provide them the transaction number from Amazon and the item purchased so they can send out my free camera. Camera was $69.

Bonus! Unfortunately, these cheap wireless backup cameras seem to all use the same channel, so you can't just add a second camera (rear view while driving vs bumper view for parking) without replacing one of the transmitters.

I would be interested if you want to sell the second one (in case the transmission channel cannot be changed to run two camera.)

Why not buy one and get one free?

Don't need two. Have enough stuff that I need to get rid off before taking my van cross country.

Let me see what they send me and I'll let you know. I need/want more than one camera, so maybe I'm starting with the wrong unit. The less expensive ones are because they don't have all the bells and whistles.
I really want a system that when it senses outside motion it starts recording all cameras. I don't like alarms as they just scare the perp away to come back later or do someone else. My bike has an alarm that notifies my keyfob in my pocket and gives me 3 minutes before the audible on the bike goes off. By then I'm there to greet you with my 9mm.

Im far from needing one, but plan on installing a backup cam before we start moving around. If Im looking at the same one on Amazon it gets great reviews. Is it the 7 unit? Be curious how it works out. Cool that you get a free one!

Well, I think that backup cameras are one case where wireless is not necessarily better. For example, the sellers of the Emmako say: "We only recommend use under 23ft vehicle for no interference." I don't want interference, so I want wire.

And of course with wire, you can set it up so it's easy to switch between 2 or more cameras. So when I am ready for a backup camera I will most likely go with this one even though it is quite a bit more expensive:

I don't know what camera you were reading about, mine is not wireless, which is one of my concerns. I like a neat application. The camera wire is approx. 3/16" with a 1/2" fitting on the end of the cable. I can't get a proper sized grommet to go over the fitting and still seal the wire.

The free camera is their way of getting free advertising. You must post a review in order to get the free camera. I left a short positive review and then noticed many others with much longer reviews. They ask that you post a screen shot of the review in order to get the camera. I messaged back saying that it takes a few days for the review to be okayed and posted. They replied back that they would prefer pictures and or video in the review, but that my free camera was on it's way to me. I noticed on 37 reviews , only 5 had pics.
I asked them if they had any systems that would accept multiple cameras. They said my camera would, have to figure out how to do that. They also showed me another system that accepts multiple cameras.
