This is the Thinkware TWA-RDR radar motion detection module, specifically designed for use with the the Thinkware U1000 dash camera (works with the 1 channel and 2 channel version).
This module is designed to enhance the U1000's Energy Saving Parking mode 2.0.
*Energy Saving Parking Mode "Enabled" is required for RADAR motion detection.
Energy Saving Mode 2.0
If an impact has been made within 30 seconds, the dash cam will save 20 seconds video of before and after the impact.
Without the RADAR, the Energy Saving Mode will trigger recording only after an impact has been made, leaving you without any pre-event evidence.
If no impact is detected within the 30-seconds, the dash cam will automatically switch back to Energy Saving mode and no recording is stored.
Detection Distance Range : approx. 7m
Detection Horizontal Angle Range : approx. 80°
Detection Vertical Angle Range : approx. 35°
Dimensions (WxDxH) : 48 x 36 x 42mm (1.89 x 1.42 x 1.65 in)
Weight : 57.4g (0.126 lb)
Operating Temperature : -30℃~75℃
*Compatible only with U1000. *Sedan or greater sized vehicle can be detected. People passing by will not be detected. *Due to the nature of Ultra-high Frequency radiation, the distance and degree of detection can be different. *Not every object is guaranteed to be detected. *Metal objects may cause the radar to not detect motion properly. Install Radar Module as far away as possible from metal parts of the rearview mirror/ADAS sensors.
Ultra High Frequency Radar
The Thinkware U1000 RADAR is designed to be used when the dash cam is on Energy Saving Parking Mode 2.0.
*Energy Saving Parking Mode 2.0 is supported on the Thinkware U1000 dash cam.
When RADAR detects a moving object within the range, the dash cam will switch into Recording Standby Mode and impact detection is set for 30 seconds.
