Bodycams – Body Worn Cameras

Say Hello to Bodycams – See Everything, Miss Nothing

The latest generation of body worn cameras are one of the most requested add-on devices to make your radio system work harder for you.

A Huge Leap Forwards – The new generation of bodycams are much more advanced than their predecessors. Lighter devices that are now stacked with additional features and with longer-lasting batteries that can handle an entire shift. HDinfrared cameras with night vision and full integration with other wearable devices are starting to redefine what is possible with a simple to use, mini bodycam unit.

We can advise you on how to implement a body worn camera system and what it can do for you as one of the leading bodycam companies in the UK.

Bodycams in the UK – Looking After Lone Workers

Lone workers fill many critical positions in society and play an important role in multiple organisations, businesses and sectors. Statistics from the British Crime Survey show that up to 150 lone workers are attacked (both verbally & physically) each and every day in the UK. These attacks affect many industries and job roles that utilise lone workers. Regardless of the sector they’re working within, or the comparative risks that they face, it is important that these workers are supported. Providing them with the best possible bodycam kits to enable them to complete their roles as safely and securely as possible is vital. Working alone makes an individual much more vulnerable than they would be in a team, especially when they must deal with aggressive individuals. A body worn or discrete bodycam is the perfect deterrent for these potential situations, whilst also ensuring any incident is filmed that the footage can be analysed and used later.

Your Legal Obligation with Bodycams

Every organisation and business has a duty of care to their employees. Lone workers’ safety requires special attention and management, and you will have a lone working policy in place. This will mean the lone worker will require a level of training and will also need to be supplied with adequate personal safety equipment, alarms, and visual & audio recorders, such as body worn cameras (bodycams). They will also need active monitoring to make sure that they are kept safe. Whether you require civilian bodycams or sector-specific job role options, such as police bodycams in the UK, we can help.

Body Worn Cameras – The Positive Impact

In a 2016 study carried out by Cambridge University, police wearing bodycams received 93% fewer complaints from members of the public than those without the devices. The twelve-month study was conducted over 1.5 million police hours using 2,000 officers around the country and was one of the largest controlled experiments in criminal justice research. Police bodycams in the UK have proved to be effective at calming down and avoiding potential flashpoints between officers and their suspects.

Notably, the devices tackled the issue of having very different accounts of the same event from officers and suspects by providing direct and irrefutable visual and audio evidence that can be used in court. Police bodycams in the UK can be the difference between the truth or manipulation of the facts by a defendant or victim, essential in modern policing.

Bodycams Deter Aggression

Wearing a body cam has been proven to lessen the aggression faced by the wearer. The ability to instantly record court-ready evidence will often de-escalate hostility and deter people from being aggressive in the first place. Many people do not like the idea of their aggressive behaviour being filmed and used as evidence against them, thus a mini bodycam provides an additional layer of protection for the worker, e.g. security personnel.

For those aggressive individuals that won’t back down, the accumulation of evidence from a bodycam device can make the difference between a successful and unsuccessful court prosecution of that individual.

The Risks to Your Lone Workers

Along with the risk of facing down an aggressive individual who is threatening violence or being abusive, a bodycam can be an ideal tool for dealing with thefts and intruders, driving-related incidents and even sudden illness or accidents. There’s a multitude of ways that a bodycam can help you to fulfil your duty of care to protect your most vulnerable workers.

We are seeing many new innovative uses for bodycams as the flexibility of linking modern communications makes it possible to really tailor a system to precisely cater for any specific business requirements. Bodycam companies are developing newer technological advances consistently to ensure that sectors have the latest equipment readily available.

A Tireless Witness

The body worn camera (bodycam) is like a tireless witness that’s with you throughout your shift. It doesn’t take tea breaks and doesn’t even blink. Every incident and potential flashpoint can be recorded or streamed live to a control room or other radio device protecting the company, organisation, and the worker from false complaints regarding their conduct.

When you’re put in a difficult situation to deal with, the bodycam can be your best friend who’s there to help you through. Not only will your co-workers get alerted to your position, but when evidence is collected and used in conjunction with the other security systems and on-site cameras, a body worn camera can allow a court to see the complete and indisputable picture of what happened, instead of being faced with contradictory witness statements.

Get the Whole Picture with Bodycams in the UK

The current generation of bodycams in the UK have taken a huge leap forward over their predecessors. The devices are now much lighter with longer battery lives that will last an entire shift. Options such as our Hytera bodycam range are fully stacked out with modern features:

  • Full HD video quality
  • Infrared cameras
  • Night vision
  • Full integration with other wearable devices including two-way radios

By combining the new Hytera VM780 Bodycam with the PDC760 multimode advanced radio would allow you to stream the footage from the discrete bodycam directly to a separate radio worn by a controller or co-worker. This connection can allow you to get the support you need when you need it most.

Features of our Affordable Bodycams in the UK:

Protected Footage – Bodycams cleverly lock the recorded footage with encryption so that it cannot fall into the wrong hands if it is stolen or lost. Only the people authorised to see it will be able to access it.

Management Software – The heart of running a successful bodycam system lays in the simple to use management software. This is where you can securely and easily manage the recorded footage downloaded from all bodycams. This puts you in the driving seat of the system and in control of all data accumulated with your video & audio recording systems.

A Camera for Every Occasion – The options for using bodycams are so wide-ranging so that no matter what you need, there is always a solution we can provide. It’s no wonder it’s one of the fastest-growing tech sectors in the world. It’s also one we’re seeing more industries looking to integrate using the latest generation of modern UK available bodycams to protect their workers.

Mission Critical Features – A typical body worn camera, such as the Hytera VM580D (bodycam & remote speaker microphone) is stacked with mission-critical security features. With one-hand operation for simplicity and fast access to critical information, the Hytera user interface has been designed with your safety in mind.

Simple Menu Options – Simple menu options can be customised to work for individual employees and allows them the shortcuts they need. The slimline device weighs less than 170 grams and is dustproof and waterproof (IP67), meaning that despite its size, it is more than rugged enough to handle even the most brutal & challenging environments.

Optimal Recording Performance – The 16-megapixel image sensor & six infrared LEDs provide an optimal recording performance from the 180° rotatable, 140° wide-angle lens, that is initiated with a single touch. Even when recording 4K footage the battery life for constant video will last longer than 8 hours. Using the HD recording function, the battery will last much longer.

Tamper-Proof Data – With 16GB as standard, and with upgrade options for 32GB, 64GB & 128GB, you can tailor your bodycams to fit your intended usage. Secure & reliable data transfer is achieved simply by docking the device into the charger. This feature ensures your content remains tamper-proof and secure for when you need it.
