Anybody know of wireless parking sensors? Something that's completely wireless?

I'm looking for a wireless or smart parking sensor that's easy to install. I'm not much for wiring anything...When I look online most options seem to be extremely complicated or expensive. Any help would be much appreciated. I'm buying a used car soon and need to know options soon so I can maybe have the dealership install it for me.

Why not just get a backup camera? I bought a simple reverse camera from Amazon with a Wi-Fi relay module. It has power in the trunk and that's it. No other wires to run. The Wi-Fi lets me view footage on my phone. I've seen some proximity sensors but most require drilling holes in bumpers then running alarm modules to the cab. What kind of car is it? This is the majority of what I've seen on parking sensors...never seen anything wireless:

Thanks for the reply,

Looks like I still have to wire the device,

I'm wondering if anyone has tried this one?




It looks like something I can just plug and play.

I am currently looking at wireless cameras for my Elise.

What brand did you end up getting and are you happy with it? Is your phone able to get the Wi-Fi signal without losing cell service? I thought it was a "one or the other" situation. Thanks to anyone who can provide additional info on Wi-Fi cameras and their experiences with installation and use. BTW, my plan is to mount a 7" Android table for the camera, navigation, GPS speed, and GasBuddy. My tablet has AT&T 4G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
