Body-worn cameras are becoming the norm for police officers and the US. The benefits can extend to any private security officer. Some reports from police forces around the world reveal that wearing body cameras results in fewer complaints, more guilty pleas, and less need for the use of force. If those are the benefits that you want for your business and security team, let’s talk about Surveillance Secure’s solutions thanks to our vendor Axis Communications.
When Axis was developing the body cams that we recommend to our clients, the focus was on making the devices compatible with a company’s preexisting Video Management System. This means that you don’t need to update or change your software in order to upgrade to body-worn cameras. The open architecture of the device ensures that it works with various third-party management systems.
Loads of features have been packed into the design of these body cameras. There are three main parts to the system, and each piece of hardware comes loaded with the features you want as a part of your security detail.
- The cameras – Small and lightweight, these body cameras are comfortable to wear all day long. They also produce high-quality images, even in low light conditions. The cameras are designed to handle harsh surroundings, so you don’t have to worry about replacing a camera every time they get knocked around a little.
- The docking station – The convenient docking station provides a location at the base where the cameras can simply and quickly be charged. The batteries are designed to last, and the docking station makes it easy to remember to charge them.
- The system controller – The controller takes footage from the cameras and sends it to your storage location. It also removes the footage from the cameras so that you don’t have to worry about running out of storage for footage on the device itself.
A Secure Device for Security Forces
You don’t want the footage from your body cameras to be available to just anyone, epically since privacy matters may be involved. That is why the data is encrypted. It is safely stored to be used as unbiased evidence if you ever have to review the recordings.
