About the RS-1000

REFERENCE TARGET

The RS-1000 digital rear-view mirror sets a new standard for safe cycling. The RS-1000 continuously monitors the traffic behind and sends the real-time digital view to a smartphone mounted in the rider's field of vision.

 

About the hardware

It goes without saying that the rear light is approved by the Federal Motor Transport Authority and complies with the German Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (StVZO).

It offers protection against dust and rain (IP55 and IP57).

The RS-1000 is easily attached to the seat post or luggage rack using a quick-release fastener.

The super-bright rear light integrates a multi-stage brake light, just like in the latest generation of cars.

It includes a dashcam with wide-angle function (150°).

 

To the software

The camera comes with the free Ride Safety app for Android and iOS. Images are transmitted to the app wirelessly via WiFi. The most important features are:

 

Intuitive operation via smartphone.
AI-based hazard detection with automatic warning for the following events:
- fast approach,
- close approach,
- close overtaking.
Accident recorder: automatic recording of accidents and dangerous situations as well as additional information.
Manage video recordings in the app's media gallery.

Notes on the firmware update

A firmware update is approx. 600 MB in size. We recommend connecting the camera and smartphone to your home network for the update instead of the hotspot.

However, to be able to use the hotspot again after the update, the home network connection must be cut again, as the camera always connects to the strongest known network.

 

A factory reset deletes the home network connection and all other connections.
To perform a factory reset, press the reset button for longer than 10 seconds.

Security

REFERENCE TARGET

The RS-1000 is intended for use on bicycles in road traffic. It can be mounted on the seat post or luggage rack and serves as a digital rear-view mirror on the handlebars. The system records the traffic behind and transmits the image to a smartphone in the rider's field of vision.

 

The RS-1000 must be supplied with power:
for e-bikes via the rear light connection,
on other bikes by charging beforehand using the USB-C cable supplied.

 

REFERENCE TARGET
This product complies with the specified limits for radio frequency radiation from portable devices in an uncontrolled environment and is safe for intended use as described in this manual. Further reduction of radio frequency exposure can be achieved by keeping the product as far away from the body as possible.

 

REFERENCE TARGET

DANGER

High accident risk if the rear light function fails at dusk or in the dark
Risk of serious or even fatal injuries!
Never ride without an illuminated rear light.
Charge the battery as soon as the RS-1000 indicates a low battery level.
Keep the cover cap firmly closed over the connections at all times to prevent the ingress of water and dirt.
