PiLink Action Camera Upgrade

This upgrades your PiLink system so that it acts as a dedicated always on Action video recorder. 


  • Always on recording - like a dashcam, but without the fish-eye lens.  Rolls footage in 10 minute blocks without footage loss.  Records over oldest footage when storage is full.  Manual mode can be enabled if you prefer to start/stop recording via a switch.
  • GoPro Hero 3 quality - 1080p at 30fps
  • External microphone - move the microphone wherever you like so that it is out of the wind.  Get clear sound.  Includes 3D printed clip with 3M mounting tape to secure to your dash.
  • Hotspot and WiFi Access - Enabled a automatic Hotspot when away from home, and connects to home WiFi when available for easy access.  Web File server for downloading files wirelessly as well as a Media Server for easy playback from your home or laptop wherever you are!
  • Runs off 12V power - since it runs on your PiLink it starts when you start your car, and stops when you turn it off.
  • Stores on USB - for quick and easy removal from your car.  16GB storage stores over 140min of rolling footage.  User can upgrade to a larger USB drive.
  • Timestamps on video files - Thanks to the real time clock in PiLink your video files are saved with accurate timestamps so you know when they were taken.
  • Multiple Mounting Styles and Orientations - Both GoPro and RAM style mounting are available, along with mount brackets for roll cages and flat surfaces.  If you want something not seen here, reach out and we can talk about customizing your Action Camera.
  • Replaceable Lens Protector - Lexan lens cover unscrews for easy replacement (reach out to me for replacement covers).

Features Coming Soon!

  • Streaming Mode - Simultaneously record and live stream to YouTube or Facebook!
  • Live Preview Mode - View the live camera feed to assist with proper aiming of your Action Camera
  • File and DLNA servers - Access your videos for downloading or direct viewing from any device, including your phone, when connected to your PiLink's hotspot.

If ordered with your PiLink everything will be assembled and ready to use.  If ordered separately some assembly is required.


  • Action Camera with customizable mount options
  • External Microphone with mounting clip
  • USB Sound Card with retention clip
  • Camera Receiver Module (installs into your PiLink)
  • 16GB USB 3.0 Drive - pre-configured for PiLink with Action Camera
  • 10ft. HDMI cable (integrated with camera)


  • Mounting Orientation - choose whether the the mounting provisions are towards the top of the camera, or the bottom.  
  • Mount Style- None means there is no mount on the camera case, so you must figure out how to mount it and attach it to your car.  GoPro and RAM style are self-explanatory (RAM is pictured above).
  • Case Material - Standard temperature range of the camera case is up to 154 deg F, plenty for most places inside a car and outside.  However up under the windshield on the dashboard temps can go higher, so we have a higher temp material up to 235 deg F, plenty for the hottest of days even on a car dash or windshield.  The sides of the camera will be smooth as opposed to textured in the standard material.  Extra charge for high temp as it is expensive and difficult to work with.
  • Mount Options- None means no mounting solution comes with your camera.  Optional are an M6 GoPro style mount, meant for bolting to a surface, and various diameter roll cage mounts (note 2" is available, just not listed but can be requested by mentioning in order notes).
  • Customizable - I can customize the case lettering.  If you have something fancier in mind, let me know.   I can also work somewhat with the mount locations.  Include customizations in your order notes during checkout or email me at [email protected] with your order number and customization details immediately after placing your order.

NOTE!  This product is MADE TO ORDER.  I do not keep inventory, so I will need to order all these components after you place your order.  Please be patient.  This means I am subject to current parts availability though I will communicate any delays with you.

PiLink Software must be updated to v1.11 in order for the Action Camera upgrade to work (please see the PiLink product page for software update details).
