The Install Bay Introduced 12 New Vehicle Cameras and More at SEMA

HOLLY HILL, FL (11.12.2019) – Metra Electronics introduced twelve new automotive cameras and a universal mirror monitor from The Install Bay at the 2019 SEMA Show. As more drivers see the value in upgrading their vehicles to reduce blind spots and prevent collisions, installers have an opportunity to provide quality aftermarket solutions at an affordable cost with this new value series from The Install Bay.

This affordable product line features ten universal automotive cameras and two commercial vehicle cameras with active or selectable parking lines. Active parking lines offer dynamic guidelines, lines that move according to the direction the vehicle is reversing. Those with the selectable parking line option allow the installer to turn the parking lines on or off by cutting a wired loop if the customer does not desire parking lines. Five of the cameras also have a selectable mirrored or non-mirrored image option that allows the installer to choose the customer’s desired image with a different colored loop and allows the cameras to be mounted on either the front or rear of the vehicle. These solutions are in stock now and shipping.

Universal Vehicle Cameras
The Install Bay has two new, universal surface mount cameras, the Surface Mount Camera (CC001) and the Surface Mount Camera with LEDs (CC003). The CC001 comes with the selectable mirrored/non-mirrored image option and a 170-degree viewing angle. The CC003 has four LEDs that light up when powered and a 150-degree viewing angle.

Two new angled cameras, the Angled Push-In Camera (CC002) and the Angled Bolt-In Camera (Angled Bolt-In Camera), both have selectable parking lines and a 170-degree viewing angle. The Angled Push-In Camera also offers the selectable mirrored/non-mirrored image option.

For the driver who wishes to have a camera installed on the license plate, The Install Bay has three new License Plate Cameras. The IR Plate Camera (CC005) has eight infrared lights for night vision, selectable parking lines and a 160-degree viewing angle. The License Plate Active Line Camera (CC004) comes with both the active and selectable parking line options, four LED lights that light up when powered and a 160-degree viewing angle. The License Plate Camera (CC007) has the selectable mirrored/non-mirrored image option, selectable parking lines and a 170-degree viewing angle.

The three final universal cameras showcased are the Bullet Camera (CC008), the Adjustable Side Camera (CC010) and the Thru-Hole Camera (CC009), all of which come with the selectable parking lines option. The Bullet Camera and the Adjustable Side Camera also offer selectable mirrored/non-mirrored image option and a 160-degree viewing angle. The Thru-Hole Camera offers infrared lights for night vision and a 150-degree viewing angle.

Universal Mirror Monitor
For an affordable replacement rearview mirror monitor upgrade, The Install Bay is introducing the Universal 4.3” Mirror Monitor (CCM01). With two camera inputs and signal sensing, this 4.3” LCD display mirror monitor can be mounted on any vehicle with its universal mount brackets, complete with screws and the harness. It features an integrated 4.3” display within the mirror monitor. (Cameras are sold separately)

Commercial Vehicle Cameras
For commercial vehicles demanding a heavy-duty solution, The Install Bay is offering two cameras in black or white housing options. These solutions are ideal for larger commercial vehicles or equipment, including tractor-trailers, and include a 32-feet/10-meter harness. The white camera can also blend in on boats if desired for marine applications. Both cameras come with IR lights for night vision, selectable parking lines, a 160-degree viewing angle, a 32-feet/10-meter harness, power adapter harness, hardware and a user manual.

The Install Bay offers a convenient “one-stop-shop” for installation professionals to order everything they need from one place at an affordable price. In addition to automotive cameras, several new installation products will also be on display with Metra Electronics at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas from November 5th – 8th at booth 11639 in the North Hall.

Metra Electronics Introduces New Daytona Lights Brand at the SEMA Show

LAS VEGAS, NV (11.07.2019) – Metra Electronics has introduced a new LED lighting brand, Daytona Lights, at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. This new brand of aftermarket automotive LED lighting includes ultra-slim and dual-row LED lightbars, cube-style LED lights, and headlight replacement bulbs and decoders at an affordable cost for budget-conscious consumers.

The new Daytona Lights value series, manufactured by Metra Electronics of Holly Hill, Florida, (located next to Daytona Beach, FL), has been inspired and named after the area’s history of automotive racing and motorcycle events. This new brand has been engineered and manufactured to meet all international standards while providing incredible value for vehicle owners. All of the Daytona Lights series products are rated IP67 and have undergone rigorous testing during the development and manufacturing process and then again before leaving the factory. Metra Electronics’ 70+ year history, experience and approach to engineering and manufacturing ensures that all of these products stand out among the competitors and provide both quality and value, season after season.

Products Featured at the 2019 SEMA Show:

The Ultra-Slim Lightbar Series (DL-US) has a spot beam pattern and is available in 6 different lengths, from 7.25 inches to 50.25 inches. These lightbars are rated IP67, are constructed of black die-cast aluminum, stainless steel hardware, a polycarbonate lens and integrated-epoxy encapsulated electronics. The slim fit is ideal for installation into tight applications when additional off-road lighting is desired, without the need for an obtrusive or large lightbar system.

The Dual Row Lightbar Series (DL-DR) features a combination of 90 degree flood and 8 degree spot beam patterns, and is available in 7 different lengths, from 8 inches to 52 inches. They are constructed of black die-cast aluminum, stainless steel hardware, a polycarbonate lens and integrated-epoxy encapsulated electronics. These lightbars are rated IP67 and have a military breather port that allows moisture to escape and eliminate fogging. The combination beam pattern and dual-row LEDs provide extra illumination and lighting coverage for off-road use.

The Dual Row Cube Lights (DL-CL1) are 2.75 by 4 inches in size (including the bracket) and come with 6 LEDs. These bright cube lights provide 2,520 raw lumens with a 90 degree flood beam pattern and total of 36 watts. Made with integrated-epoxy encapsulated electronics, a polycarbonate lens and aluminum housing construction, these durable cube lights are rated IP67 and are sold as a pair. They are the ideal addition to any vehicle desiring off-road lighting.

Replacement LED Headlight Bulbs (DL-H) come in single and dual-beam options at a great value. These bright lights are designed to fit into tight spaces with a compact design that doesn’t compromise performance. By engineering a high density fin design, these bulbs stay as cool or even cooler than traditional LED bulbs with bulky heat sinks or messy braid designs. The light output is equally impressive with a total of 6,000 lumens of cool white (6500K) illumination per pair using 20 watts per bulb. Kits are available in the most common headlight sizes.

CANBUS Decoders (DL-HD) will complete a replacement headlight installation and are used with vehicles that have CANBUS systems that monitor the headlights. These decoders are plug-n-play connectors that stop the headlights from flashing and come in a pair with either single-beam or dual-beam options.

The SEMA Show, hosted November 5th – November 8th, is one of the largest trade shows in the world and attracts the industry’s brightest minds and hottest products to one place. The event also provides educational seminars, product demonstrations, special events, networking opportunities and much more. Metra Electronics will have two booths at the event displaying all of their new products from their 12volt brands. See the new Daytona Lights product line at Metra’s main booth 11639 in the North Hall and powersports, truck and off-road accessories booth 37017 in the South Hall Upper.

Both are sold in pairs and fit the 1157 base. The BC-PC1156R is a single-color brake light that fits the 1156 base with bright red LEDs. All three pairs of lights feature (24) 6-watt LEDs with 720 lumens of illumination to provide a bright yet stylish upgrade for Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

Highway Bar Switchback Lights
Riders will benefit from added visibility with Saddle Tramp’s highway bar switchback lights that come in black (BC-MHBSBB) or chrome (BC-MHBSBC) finishes. Each pair includes (6) 6-watt white LED driving lights and (6) 6-watt amber LED signal lights to fit 1.25” round bars for Harley-Davidson, Indian, Victory or other motorcycle models.

A load equalizer, sold separately, may be required for 2013 and earlier models.
