OMAHA, Neb. — Radio Engineering Industries (REI) announces a new low profile, recessed camera that helps prevent head injuries. Historically, cameras mounted in school buses have protruded several inches from the ceiling creating a serious risk of head impact by passengers.
To address this hazard, REI introduces a low profile recessed camera that only extends 1 inch from the ceiling and creates a safe passenger zone.
 
Amendment changes to school bus specifications in the state of Iowa, with other states expected to follow suit, prompts an immediate resolution for passenger safety. Iowa Administrative Code, Education[281] Ch. 44, page 18 sec. 44.3(39) i (6-11-14):  “Camera heads shall not extend more than 1” from the ceiling and shall have rounded edges as much as possible.” REI is first to market with a recessed camera to meet these specifications.
 
Other features include: adjustable viewing angles, high resolution color, and intelligent IR technology for viewing footage clearly day or night. A tamper proof design allows for maximum safety and accountability of drivers and passengers. The camera can be mounted in a variety of locations throughout a bus. Choose one or two locations for basic coverage, or choose more locations for maximum coverage. Two lens sizes are available, 2.8mm and 3.6mm.
