2:35 am
somebody hits you, or somebody tries to break into the car, or someone that happens, and then it's "he said, she said?" well, now we've got the evidence right here. what the hd mirrorcam has done is take away the obstacle of having this extra thing stuck on your windshield. well, here's where we've developed a game-changer. we're going to take your rear-view mirror and make it better. we're going to put a dash cam in your rear-view mirror because this screen is build right into the rear-view mirror. it slips over your existing rear-view mirror with adjustable straps, and you have a built-in video recorder, a built-in dash cam. you're not gonna have an extra thing stuck on the middle of your windshield. well, i'll let jim explain how it works. >> so, here's what the hd mirrorcam looks like. this is the camera lens. so small and unobtrusive, it's less than the size of a quarter. you have these flexible straps that are going to wrap around any existing mirror, no matter how large or how small. when you turn it on, right there

[ beeps ] so it'll turn on automatically if it senses any movement of someone walking around your car, for instance. and it has night vision led bulbs that let you capture crystal-clear hd video at night, as well. it also has one-touch picture mode to instantly snap a still photo even while it's recording video. finally, it has a g-sensor. so, if there's an accident, it locks down your footage and won't record over it. the hd mirrorcam is simply the most important tool you'll ever
