Question Aftermarket Backup Sensors

I recently purchased a 2011 dodge ram without the backup sensors. I already have the factory backup camera but would like to have the sound beep the closer I get to an item. I want to add an aftermarket kit but I dont want to add the kits that come with an external screen. The issue with this is that the systems without the screen dont have an on/off switch, so I would have to place an external switch which Id rather not do. I'm wondering if I were to purchase the factory switch that turns off the factory backup sensor could I use that as the switch to turn off the aftermarket backup sensor instead of having to install a toggle switch. Also are there any brands that work best, the ones on eBay look very poorly made. Again the main thing I would like to know is if I can some how use the OEM ParkSense switch to turn off an aftermarket backup sensor. Any information would be greatly appreciated

Jersey Devil will become famous soon enough

Take a look at these kits:

You don't need a switch to turn on and off if you wire it to the reverse lights for power source it will only be on when in reverse.
