New Body Cam is Lightweight and Easy to Use for Security with Lone Workers

22 June 2018

SoloProtect is launching the SoloProtect ID Pro body-worn video device (BWV) for lone worker device applications — night security guards, for example. The ID Pro gives users the option of streaming video for faster verification during a live Red Alert, receipt of geographically triggered risk messaging and indoor location capability powered by Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

The ID Pro's video functionality makes it 'fit for purpose.' It is the smallest and lightest BWV device with cellular capability on the market, is easy to integrate into apparel and can be used independently of its video capability.

ID Pro's video recording is intermittent, allowing for a smaller, more accessible device weighing only 103 grams. The device streams video live to a SoloProtect Monitoring Center during a Red Alert, providing an operator with the full picture of an event and better intelligence.

SoloProtect manages client video data, supplies a client with video relating only to their genuine "Red Alert" and will react, store and delete in line with the strict requirements reflected in their privacy policy, laid out in relation to data protection governance.

In addition, the SoloProtect ID Pro offers the use of Bluetooth beacons and is enabled with Wi-Fi sniffing to assist in determining the location of lone workers when indoors. An existing or new network of beacons can be managed in SoloProtect Insights. In the event of a Red Alert, the SoloProtect Monitoring Center can request a response based on a location taken from the most recent beacon or network point seen.

Risk messaging delivered through the ID Pro can also be deployed by a lone worker manager using SoloProtect Insights, both manually and automatically when triggered by location. It can be used to keep staff updated on a situation (a severe weather warning, for example) or something more serious (a known police response incident in a particular area of a city).
