About

Wide View That Eliminates Blind Spots
Wide View That Eliminates Blind Spots

The world currently has over a billion vehicles on the road - and with so many drivers out there, safety is more important than ever. The Perigon HD Digital Mirror is the first high definition display system designed to enhance driver visibility by an average of 3-4 times that of a traditional rear view mirror, while eliminating blind spots and other obstacles from view.

Good drivers aim to always be aware of their surroundings, and we offer you a system that greatly enhances your view to the rear and sides of your car, effectively giving you the same view out the rear of your vehicle as you have out the front- all installed with DIY simplicity. No alterations to your car or professional installation needed.

POWER AND CAMERA CABLE INSTALLATION

See how easy the cabling is to install for Perigon!

Here is a newer and improved video showing the installation process for the cables, as well as the standard interior camera. There is also a short part showing the alternative external camera mounting procedure for SUV's and hatchbacks (note: you only need to mount one or the other- not both!). We hope this helps show how easy installation is!

  • Perigon was originally designed for use in race cars. Professional drivers love the expanded view and real-time imaging, with many opting to also use Perigon in their own personal road vehicles. Quite simply, once you use it, it’s hard to go back to an old style mirror. 
  • Perigon is perfect in the cars of new drivers, teens with their learner’s permit and those who are just starting out in the parking lot. Driving becomes much simpler from the start! 
  • Perigon can provide peace of mind for moms and dads with families riding in the backseat. Safer defensive driving can keep your family safe and other families on the road out of trouble. 
  • Are you a taxi, Uber or Lyft driver? Driving is what makes up your job and Perigon is here to help make it easier, safer and even easier to see others around you. 
  • Drive a big food truck, giant delivery van or bulky vehicle in general? Perigon seeks to provide you with a clearer image no matter what size vehicle you drive. When you’re able to easily see what’s around you, the less likely an accident is to occur.

  • Going on a road trip? You know how scary it can be to have a car packed to the roof and not be able to see out your mirrors. Don’t worry, Perigon has your back! 
  • Big family? It always seems like the person sitting in the middle is the tallest and always in the way of seeing what’s behind you. With Perigon, you won’t have that problem anymore! 
  • Inclement weather can make it hard to see out of all your mirrors, but Perigon has the features to make it easier to see in even the toughest of weather conditions. 
  • Maybe you’re a competitive athlete, day tripper, avid carpooler or you just find yourself with a vehicle packed to the brim more often than not - Perigon is designed to help you become more aware of your surroundings without the obstacles in your car getting in the way. 
  • Stuck in rush hour traffic every day? Stop worrying about whether it's safe to change lanes. Perigon allows you to easily see all vehicles around you and know when it's safe to change lanes.

Risks and challenges

We’ve been planning for the risks and challenges that we may come across during our campaign, and preparing for them the best we can. We have had factories and suppliers lined up and ready to roll for some time, and are just waiting to open housing tools for the display and the camera. We’re aware that some issues can’t be foreseen, the same way you might not see a fender bender coming. Should any issues arise with manufacturing or shipping, we have a variety of tactics set in place to keep things moving and on track- primarily by having multiple supplier options for each component. Our team has set safe shipping dates so that if any speed bumps arise, we should still be able to meet our deadlines. We don’t anticipate any major speed bumps, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated every step of the way no matter what.

At Perigon, we’re all about clarity, both literally and figuratively, and we’ll do our best to address any questions or concerns you might have and keep things moving to get you your Perigon delivered on time. At Perigon, we’ve got your back!
