Video Transcript for Swift Hitch Backup Cameras and Alarms - Hitch Alignment Camera Systems - SH04 Review

Today I'm gonna take a look at the Swift Hitch Wireless Wifi Camera with night vision for smart phone or tablet. This swift hitch wifi camera can be used for hitching up, backing up, horse trailers, camping, and even home monitoring. This will link directly to your smartphone or tablet via the wifi, you just have to download the free Swift wifi cam application to your phone or tablet. There's no data plan or internet access required. This is a nice portable camera, it is adjustable. Has a nice magnetic base for easy mounting and removal. Just to show you that I got a piece of metal here, you can see how it will attach to that, and then you can adjust it to whatever angle you need.

Now, it will transmit both video and audio. It is capable of linking with multiple smartphones or tablets at one time. It is battery powered, it gives you about up to five hours working time per charge. Does have infrared lights on the front so it gives you night vision, it can reach up to 10 feet in total darkness. The color video image it gives you, the resolution is 640 x 480. Has a nice sleek weather proof housing which can support outdoor and indoor applications. It will operate while it's charging, charging voltage is 5 volts DC or 12 volts DC.

This camera is also compatible with GoPro mounting kits for installing anywhere you'd like. You can also continue to receive calls and text messages on your smartphone while in the camera mode. The Swift wifi camera app allows you to easily switch between STA mode and AP mode to fit different working environments. Basically, STA mode just means the camera can be viewed anywhere in the world via internet access and the AP mode, the camera can be viewed in an environment with no internet access such as a rural county road. You can record camera images and video clips on your phone or tablet. You can view reverse imaging, you do receive a low battery alert, it will give you also, backup guidelines for easy hitch alignment.

Has a time and date stamp snap shot, you can monitor more than one camera on one device, and you will receive motion detection alerts while in the STA mode. Now, this part includes everything I laid out here on the table; the wireless camera mentioned with the magnetic base, USB charging cable with the AC adapter, nine foot long power cable for hard wiring to your 12 volt DC system, this sort of unique magnet holder for easy mounting of your phone or tablet on your dashboard. Basically they have these two metal pieces with tape on them, put it to your tablet or to your phone. With that on the back of your phone, what you can do is this will stick to that and there's a magnet here so you just stick that to the back of your phone. Then if you notice, you can just put it to whatever angle you want. Here you got the whole face tape to attach to your dash or wherever you want your phone or tablet to sit. It's a very powerful magnet.

This is all included. It also comes with screws for optional permanent mounting of the camera if you prefer, and a nice detailed users manual that'll describe how to use all the features. What I'm gonna try to do here is we're gonna turn the camera on, I got my smartphone here, we're gonna show you the app, and then I'm gonna just show you the picture it gives you, then we're gonna turn off the lights to show you the night vision. First thing you want to do, this camera's charged so there's a main button right here, you just push it, the green light comes on. If you see on the front there's a green light, let me just zoom in a little bit. Here's your green light right there, now it'll stay steady when you first turn it on, after about 15, 20 seconds it'll start flashing, that means it's made the connection to the wifi. We'll just look at that and you can see right at the top is the green light. After a couple seconds, there you go, it'll start flashing so it's connected to our wifi. I'm just gonna point it this way, and then what I'm gonna do is got my smartphone here, we're gonna pull that up. I'm just gonna try to show you on the screen if you can see, there's the last app I downloaded, that's the Swift wifi. We're gonna hit that, and now you're gonna see it's gonna be connecting. If you had other cameras they'd all be listed down here so we got the one. I'm gonna hook that up, just gonna hook the camera. There you go, now you show the wifi connecting, we'll hit it. It's gonna bring you a really nice detailed picture, and up at the top is the timestamp. I'm just gonna shoot around here in the studio and you can see how it's picking up everything as I move the camera around. Really nice detailed high definition picture. Now what I'm gonna do is go ahead and turn off the overhead lights. What's gonna happen, you're gonna see the lights around me and my booth here have gone off, you can still see. But you'll notice, watch when I turn this camera into my area, you can see how the night vision really lights up. That's me standing there. Then you'll see as I turn the overhead lights back on. Simple as that, and then when you're done, you just go ahead and push that off and the green light will be off. Now we'll just go ahead and zoom out some, but that should do it for the review on the Swift Hitch Wireless Wifi Camera with night vision for your smartphone or tablet.

Camera worked well for hooking the gooseneck onto the truck. I also like that it can be moved to the back of the trailer so I can see what is behind it when backing up. 638971

Ask the Experts about this Swift Hitch Backup Cameras and Alarms
Do you have a question about this Backup Cameras and Alarm?


  • Recommended Swift Hitch Alignment Camera with Night Vision and Monitor
  • To get the wireless camera similar to the # SH04 along with a monitor, you will want the Swift Hitch Wireless Hitch Alignment Camera and Monitor - Night Vision - 4-Hour Camera Battery # 04928. This is the only separate monitor that will work with the Swift Hitch camera unless you use the smartphone or tablet app. The monitor is not currently available separately.

  • Wireless Backup Camera that is Android Compatible and Waterproof
  • We have a few wireless cameras that can display on an Android device. First we have Rampage Wireless Backup Camera for Smartphone or Tablet - iOS or Android Item # RA7710. But this camera was not designed to be waterproof or resistant so it doesn't have an IP rating. Next we have Rear View Safety WiFi Hitch Backup Camera System - Wireless Item # RVS-83112-WIFI. Unlike the above camera this one carries an IP68 rating which means it is dust tight and it is waterproof up to 3 meters of...

  • Recommended Rear View Camera System For Back Of Trailer For Rear View While Driving
  • The Swift Hitch Wi-Fi Camera for Smartphone or Tablet - Wireless - Night Vision - 5-Hour Battery # SH04 only has a 5 hour battery life. For a trip more than 5 hours, I recommend the Swift Hitch Wireless Hitch Alignment Camera and Monitor - Night Vision - 8-Hour Camera Battery # SH02DIGITAL. For a powered without battery option with wireless connectivity to your monitor, I recommend the Rear View Safety Wireless Backup Camera System - Cigarette Lighter Adapter # RVS-091406.

  • Do Any Wireless Observation Camera Systems Integrate with OEM Vehicle Dashboard Display
  • Although we do offer many brands and styles of backup/observation camera systems these are all either complete free-standing systems that have their own monitor or they are designed to use a smartphone as the display. None of the aftermarket camera systems we offer are designed to integrate with OEM vehicle displays. This is a good question that is asked often. The system I tend to recommend for owners of longer travel trailers is the SwiftHitch # SH03D wireless dual camera system with...

  • Hitch Alignment Camera To Make Hooking up Fifth Wheel Easier
  • There is a camera you can add to your 2017 Ram 2500 that will make the hook-up process of your fifth wheel a simpler process. The Swift Hitch Wi-Fi Camera # SH04 will link to your iPhone so there is no need for a monitor. It is a portable camera with a magnetic base so you can mount it wherever you like, though it does come with screws for permanent mounting if you choose. The Swift Hitch has a mode which will allow you to use the camera even without internet access, night vision that...

  • Recommended Backup Camera with Wireless Ability for Tractor Trailer
  • Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 has up to a 70 foot range. Depending on the amount of aluminum in the trailer, that distance may be shorter. This system uses a 2.4 GHZ transmitter/receiver. For a WiFi Camera that uses your smart phone, I recommend the Swift Hitch Wi-Fi Camera for Smartphone or Tablet - Wireless - Night Vision - 5-Hour Battery # SH04. This will use the same 2.4 GHZ transmitter/receiver but will allow you to change the antenna location for better...

  • Backup Camera System for a 2018 Ford F-150 and Jayco RV
  • I do have a solution for you but to my knowledge there isn't a camera you can add to your Jayco that will integrate into the video system on your 2018 Ford F-150. To add a camera to the Jayco it will require a separate display. I recommend something that doesn't have to be permanently mounted. Take a look at the Swift Hitch system # SH04. With this system the camera will transmit to a smart phone via Wi-Fi. This will allow you to add a camera without having to have a separate display;...

  • Comparing Screen Display of Swift Hitch Alignment Camera Setup SH04 vs SH02Digital
  • I attached a picture that shows what the display of the Swift Hitch Digital Wireless Hitch Alignment Camera and Monitor # SH02DIGITAL looks like, but while I think the display is very clear and would work great you won't be able to beat the display clarity and size of a modern smart phone like what the Swift Hitch Wi-Fi Camera for Smartphone or Tablet # SH04 is designed to work with. Especially if you were to use it with a tablet which would be much larger.

  • Multi-Camera WiFi Camera System for Backing Up and Other Locations on Off-Road Truck
  • I recommend using the Swift Hitch camera, part # SH04, because it can be mounted with magnets so you put the cameras in different places on your truck. You can use your smartphone or tablet to connect to multiple cameras at the same time and it can be used to save images or video.

  • Difference Between the Swift Hitch Digital Wireless Hitch Alignment Systems
  • The Swift Hitch Digital Wireless Hitch Alignment Systems save for the part # 04928 (SH01) all use the same camera. The only difference is in regards to the number of cameras included, battery life, and monitor type. The SHO1 system uses an analog system as opposed to a digital system on the other three. The Swift Hitch Digital Wireless Hitch Alignment System part SH02 was replaced by the part # SH02DIGITAL which comes with one camera, has an 8 hour battery life, and uses its own monitor....
