  1. What is the difference between software mode and usb mode?
    • USB Mode: The pre-installed firmware allows you to transfer files directly to your PC via USB.
    • Police Software Mode:An optional firmware version that allows you to password protect the cameras files, making them only accessible via the included software as well as restricting the option to change the date and time and police ID.

  2. How do I view the files I have recorded?
    • You can view the files directly on the device, using the HDMI to view on a TV or transferring the files via USB to a PC. Note: If your camera is in police software mode you will have to use the police software.

  3. Can the lights on the top of the unit be turned off?
    • No, the lights are very dim and will only be visible from the officer.

  4. What is the difference between high, medium and low in the video quality menu option?
    • High, medium and low are referring to the bitrate of the video. The higher the bitrate the higher the video quality. If you want to get the most battery life, setting the video quality to low will allow you to get up to 1 hour of extra battery life in certain modes.
  5. Can I enable night vision mode without the infrared LED's glowing red for stealth operations?

    • Yes, with our latest firmware you now have this option. In night vision mode, the cameras lens infrared filter is removed which allows more light to pass thru which enables the camera to be 3-4X better than in day mode in low light conditions.

  6. Does audio record with the video in pre-event recording mode?

    • Yes, audio and video are both recorded while in this mode.

  7. How much video can be recorded in pre-event recording mode?

    • It depends on which resolution you are recording in and the video quality mode (bitrate).

    • 1080P (high): 6 seconds
    • 720P (high): 7 seconds
    • 480P (high): 15 seconds
    • 480p (low): 25 seconds
  8. Do you have extended warranties available?

    • Yes, the camera does come with a full 1 year warranty against manufacturer defects and we do offer 2-4 year warranty options as well. Please contact us for pricing.
