Your monitors should have a 'reverse-on' or 'backup' trigger wire in the harness. If you hook that reverse-on wire to the same ignition-on power wire, your systems will turn on when you turn your key on.

Just for reference, the smaller the lens on your side cameras the better, up to 6mm. The side cameras on my Saturn are 50 degree field of view (6mm) and they are excellent. 6mm is ideal. Brings images way up close so you cxan see what the heck you're trying to see. Any closer than that will result in blind spots and tunnel vision.
