No, my camera is only on when my clarion head unit is on. The two leads that come off from the camera are a positive and negative. The negative I grounded to the same spot as my deck and the positive is spliced into the power for my clarion deck(the yellow power wire from the deck to the tuner unit under my drivers seat), so the camera is only on when my deck is on. The easiest way is to just ground it to a convenient spot and then to run the power to where your video screen or headunit gets switched on power from because you will always be using the two together. Hope this helps. -Michael.
