The PEAK® Back-Up Camera System – 3.5 {Review}


I have a really great neighborhood.  We have amazing neighbors, it is quiet, safe, and a great place to raise kids.  There are LOTS of kids in our neighborhood, especially on our street.  Kids are often out playing and I am always checking behind me from every angle before I back out of my drive way.  My car does not come equipped with a back up camera.  It is down right terrifying backing up when all the kids are out playing.  My kids safety is always at the front of my mind, in and out of the car.  PEAK auto has a new safer way to help me back up with the PEAK® Back-Up Camera System – 3.5.


All of the hardware and mounting supplies are included in the kit.  The camera mounts to the license plate, and the wires feed through the trunk to a wireless transmitter which sends a signal to the monitor.  The monitor has a suction cup to mount it on the windshield.  The monitor is powered  by the cigarette lighter.  The camera is only powered on when the car is in reverse.  When it is in park or drive the camera automatically turns off.


The camera is water resistant which is really important since Texas is ridiculously humid.  We also get crazy rain storms.  I am so glad that I will be able to see behind me in all sorts of weather and that the camera was built to last!


The LCD color monitor is really great.  I get a clear picture and it gives me a better perspective of what is behind me.  I am always so paranoid that one of the little kids in my neighborhood will run out behind me to get a loose ball or something.  The monitor gives such a great colored picture I can tell exactly what is behind me.  


It is also super easy to use.  I really love that it has an automatic shut off.  When I am out and about with my kids running errands I know that I would always leave it running.  The automatic shut off makes everything so easy and gives me one less thing to think about.  It is so well made and I know it will help keep my family safe for a really long time. 

This back up camera is so awesome.  It is such a huge peace of mind to have another view of what is behind me.  This would be a great gift for families like mine with small children or pets.  It also can be installed on most vehicles, SUV’s, Trucks, RV or Campers.

The PEAK Back-up Camera is available at Walmart and auto retailers nationwide.

  5. christina radcliff says:

  6. alicia k (Petite Pilates Pixie) says:

  7. kymi a says:

    I love technology! This is such a great item to get, love how it gives me the extra eyes needed to back out safely and the picture looks so clear. I’m going to my local Walmart to check this item out! thank you for sharing.

    This is completely necessary for me to have. I need this for my Nana! She mis-judges all the time 🙂

  10. Phaltu Kachra says:

    looks intresting

  11. Julie Wood says:

    The back up camera system is a must to have because it can save lives and help a driver be able to see if a child is behind their car while backing up. I heard that in the next couple of years that back up cameras on cars will be a standard feature. It is always tragic when I hear about a small child dying from someone running over them. I would love to have this system.

  12. Trish says:

    I am terrible at backing up! There are trees on either side of my driveway and they create quite a blind spot. This camera would help me feel secure that there is no one behind me. I don’t have little kids anymore, so I’ve never really thought about a back up camera, but I think it could be useful in many other situations – farmers market, crowded parking lots, etc.

  13. Heidi says:

    I think it’s definitely worth the peace of mind if you have kids or there are kids in your neighborhood. Even in the grocery store parking lot this would be helpful!

  14. Carrie Phelps says:

    My daughter has a van so I would love for her to have one of these. Kids can be so quick when playing around the car.

  15. Binoculars says:

    I heard that in the next couple of years that back up cameras on cars will be a standard feature. It is always tragic when I hear about a small child dying from someone running over them.

  19. Amy Orvin says:

  22. Cynthia C says:

    I love the idea of a backup camera. I always get nervous driving in reverse.

  23. Dana Rodriguez says:

    That is great!I think everyone should have one.I lost a puppy once because someone accidentally backed over him 🙁

  24. Barbara Montag says:

    Since I love taking pictures and am a scrap booker this would be great to have!

  25. Carla M says:

    This solves a big safety problem. I love those kinds of products.

  26. Christina Marie says:

    This is a great idea, but I’d be worried that someone would steal the camera part when I’m out parked in a shopping center or the like. I live in California, and there’s a lot of theft here. 🙁

  27. Stephanie Bonck says:

    I think this is the best toy ever. I want for my hubby. Or do I want it for me?

  28. Jessica Dempsey says:

    Wow, I didn’t even know they made something like this! I always thought it would have to be built into the car. This would definitely give a lot of parents peace of mind.

  29. kelly tupick says:

    This is great. I also have an SUV and I know how hard it is to back up in them.

  30. Sarah L says:

    My neck is stiff and this would be so good to easily see behind me when I’m backing up. Thanks for the review.

  31. Melissa Shirley says:

    I would love this. i live in an area with a lot of kdis and I also work at a school and this would make me feel better when I am backing up.

  32. Mya Murphy says:

    This would be a great help for almost anyone. I don’t drive, so it doesn’t really do anything for me. Will share.

  33. Dianna Thomas says:

    Boy this sure would be nice for anyone to have– it sure would give you a bit more peace of mind–I drive a huge truck and you cant see behind you when you are only 5’2″ tall– I have to sit on pillows to look out– so this would be great

  34. The monitor gives such a great colored picture you can tell exactly what or who is behind you.

  35. Danalee Davis says:

    I love this! Anything that makes driving safer I am all for it.

  36. Miranda says:
