General Information





The perfect addition to our CarPro-Tec Fusion alarm system! Close the loop by being able to check and verify reported alarms in real time at any time while on the move so that you can take the right action immediately.

The 4G camera puts you right in the middle of the situation when it counts to decide how serious the situation on site really is. A real burglary attempt or just children playing soccer?

Enjoy your adventures without compromise or worry!

2. Use of a Suitable SIM Card



The 4G camera can work with any SIM card provider.

We recommend using a contract SIM card (e.g., ordering a secondary card from your provider with 500 MB of data per month). SMS and calls are not required for this SIM card.


With a contract SIM card, you have the advantage over a prepaid SIM card that you do not need to worry about timely recharging the SIM card, so the SIM card will not be deactivated.



Important: Disable SIM PIN so the camera can access the SIM card.

Please ask your provider when ordering if the SIM card can be delivered without a PIN.

To disable the SIM card PIN yourself if necessary:

Insert the SIM card into a mobile phone, go to security settings, and disable the PIN. For verification, we recommend restarting the phone. If the SIM PIN is not requested, the process was successful.

Now you can insert the SIM card into the 4G camera, and it will connect to the network automatically.


3. Turning on the 4G Camera


Please provide the camera with continuous power using the provided USB cable.

To turn on the device, slide the switch on the back from "OFF" to "ON". The red and blue LEDs will start blinking. During the initial connection, it may take several minutes for the SIM card to connect to the network.

Meaning of the blue LED:

  • Fast blinking = searching for connection
  • Steady light = connection successful


4. Install App


Download the app 'UBox' for free from the Google Play Store or Apple-App Store.

8. Use of PIR Motion Detection


We recommend using the 4G camera solely for alarm verification purposes and disabling the PIR motion detection.

This means that when you receive an alarm notification from CarPro-Tec, you check the live image from the camera to verify what is happening in the vehicle. This minimizes data and power consumption.

You can disable the PIR motion detection as follows:

- Go to the live image of the camera and click on the gear icon in the top right corner.



- Go to "Activity Detection"




- Now, turn off the PIR motion detection.
