Eagle Eye launches body-worn camera

Issue 4 2021 Commercial (Industry), Products

Eagle Eye Networks has introduced its 4G, direct-to-cloud body camera designed specifically for commercial use. This new offering provides commercial customers with affordable access to feature-rich, professional-grade body camera services, which improve staff safety and accountability, trigger immediate response and provide valuable evidence, all while protecting assets and keeping communities safe.

Body cameras dissuade aggression, improve accountability and reduce false accusations. Employees from private security guards to retail staff, in-home service providers and delivery workers feel safer and more valued when wearing body cameras.

Global research organisation, Omdia, has identified body cameras in non-law enforcement applications as a top trend in 2021, saying the potential addressable market for commercial body-worn cameras dwarfs that of law enforcement. In the US alone, Omdia estimates private security guards outnumber police officers 2-to-1 and says new commercial body camera users, in retail, for example, are rapidly emerging.

“The commercial body-worn camera market is ripe for new entrants,” said Paul Bremner, principal analyst in Omdia’s critical communications group. “Features such as cloud connectivity, 4G, live streaming, GPS and price, are important to retailers, delivery services, guards and others in the commercial sector. New body cam providers who can break the old law enforcement body camera mould with reasonably priced, feature-rich, professional-grade body cameras are positioning themselves to fill a growing need the commercial market is searching for.”

With Eagle Eye Body Cameras, users can:

• Use 4G or Wi-Fi for live streaming, real-time remote viewing and direct to cloud recording.

• Blend fixed, mobile and body-worn cameras, making it easier for your entire surveillance system to work together.

• Stream to a monitoring or security operations centre and use geo-tagging for immediate response and support.

• Experience a larger viewing area with fisheye capabilities that are dewarped in the Eagle Eye Cloud management application.

• Manage a large number of cameras in the cloud and watch from a control room.

• Use two-way audio to clearly communicate.

• Protect your people at work and in the community.

• Future-proof your investment with hardened cameras that offer ‘law enforcement-level’ durability and quality at an affordable price.

• Gain flexibility for live streaming and video retrieval during docking with rapid recharge capabilities.

“The demand for high-quality body cameras that connect to the cloud has been growing for several years, accelerating even more with the pandemic, social unrest and the shift to providing more in-home, curbside and remote services,” said Dean Drako, founder and CEO of Eagle Eye Networks. “Traditional law enforcement body cameras use a high-dollar subscription model, which is too steeply priced for commercial customers. Eagle Eye Networks will support the new Eagle Eye Body Cameras at the same low subscription cost of fixed cameras, making the solution affordable for commercial customers accustomed to paying up front for advanced cameras with affordable long-term subscriptions.”

Body cameras are initially available on the Eagle Eye Networks Camera Manager platform, with availability on the Eagle Eye Cloud Video Management System (VMS) in 2022. The Eagle Eye Body Cams can also be protected with Eagle Eye Networks’ rapid replacement service.
