Installed a Thinkware Q800 Pro this morning. I didn’t hardwire it, just plugged it into the 12V outlet in the passenger footwell and my alarm was set off 3x. I did notice that even after I’ve turned the car off and locked it, the dash cam continues to be powered on. That’s when the alarm was set off. I then unplugged the dash cam and the alarm was set off twice more. So I turned the ignition on for about 15 minutes and that seems to have fixed the problem. Could it be that the dash cam drained the battery a bit, triggering the car alarm? Shouldn’t the power supply to the 12V cut off after the car is off? Thanks!
