VB400 Body-worn camera: Vital support for security staff

If you are a member of the security staff in retail, transport, within a hospital or at a leisure venue then having extra support when you are out on patrol is important to help you with dealing challenging situations. If you are operating CCTV having a connection with those on patrol could make all the difference between capturing vital images for evidence gathering and missing out.

Supporting front-line security staff

Body-worn cameras provide that connection between front-line security staff and those monitoring the CCTV. In a range of situations security professionals may be subject to abuse from customers or members of the public and feel unsafe. Without additional support they may not wish to continue in their roles.

Having the highest quality body worn cameras that are toughened and able to withstand a range of weather conditions including rain, snow and dust will mean they will work whatever the situation. The Motorola Solutions VB400 is the next generation of body-worn camera technology that is built with a toughened exterior that has been tested to military standards. The large central button and robust side switch are positioned for easy operation, even when wearing gloves.

Easily connected to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi

The body worn cameras can be connected both via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi which will deliver a powerful mix of capabilities. Live streaming connects your team to the control room, improving the awareness of staff to events outside giving them an indication when to provide back up.

Additionally, the advanced technology means that if paired with select radios over Bluetooth, the VB400 can automatically record when the user’s radio enters an “emergency state”, when the user presses the radio’s emergency button, and when the radio’s man down sensor detects the user is down.

Like the VT100 body-worn camera it can be integrated with the video management software, Avigilon Control Center 7 ,which means activation of recording will generate a motion start event and display the camera’s live video feed. This footage can be used alongside a building’s fixed camera to provide information about a situation. This can be used at the time to provide appropriate assistance to staff or when evidence gathering about an event.
