How to Install a Backup Camera

If you’ve found your way to this blog post, you've either purchased a backup camera, or are considering purchasing one. Either way, you're on your way to a safer driving experience. The good news is, you don't need to break the bank installing Nonda's Smart Backup Camera. It's affordable, easy-to-install and will quickly grant you — or whoever is driving — peace of mind with its 170-degree wide angle lens and crystal clear picture quality.

To make things even easier, here are step-by-step instructions on how to install your new rearview backup camera:

What you need

Included with Smart Backup Camera:

  • 1 Smart Backup Camera
  • 1 mounting plate
  • 1 USB charging cable
  • 1 screwdriver
  • 1 hex wrench
  • 2 M5 flat-head long screws
  • 2 M6 flat-head short screws
  • 2 M6 locking nuts
  • 2 nut caps
  • 2 M6 flat-head long screws
  • 2 M6 flat-head self-taping screws
  • 1 heavy duty mounting tape

Not included with Smart Backup Camera:

  • A vehicle
  • A smartphone
  • 10 minutes to spare


Now that you have everything you need, here's how to install your backup camera:

First, charge your camera until the light turns green. It should take around five hours to fully charge but, rest assured, the camera should last for about a month before you need to recharge. Next, enable the WiFi and Bluetooth settings on your iOS or Android smartphone and download the ZUS Smart Driving Assistant App. Create a ZUS account. Then, press and hold the Bluetooth button on your smart backup camera and wait for it to blink three times. Pair the camera and your phone within the ZUS Smart Driving Assistant App, not your phone's bluetooth settings, and connect the WIFI by ZUS_BACKUP_CAM with password 12345678.

Once your phone and the camera have been successfully paired, you'll need to remove your license plate. Place the mounting plate onto your license plate so that your registration sticker is still visible and secure it with provided screws and locking nuts. Tighten with hex wrench and cover with nut caps. Place heavy duty mounting tape on back of license plate behind the mounting plate. Place your license plate back onto your vehicle and secure. Finally, screw the backup camera into place over the mounting plate.

Calibrate your camera by opening your ZUS Smart Driving Assistant App, selecting the car icon in the top left, selecting “Smart Backup Camera”, then “Guideline” and then “Guideline Calibrate.” Ensure your Bluetooth and Wifi are activated, and then tap the point you want to adjust until it turns green. To help with parking, adjust the guidelines to align with two parking lines on the ground and select “Save.”
