Why should your organisation be using bodycams? In today’s current workplace environment the need to protect your employees has become ever more prevalent, and as an employer it is your duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of your employees. By investing in Hytera’s VM body camera technology you can capture and record video evidence to ensure that you are adhering to your industry regulations and protecting employees. The Hytera Body cams are rugged, feature packed recordable body worn cameras which are available at an affordable price.
Hytera Body-worn cameras are a market leading technology that can help prevent and/ de-escalate confrontational situations that lone workers and public facing employees often find themselves in. By recording and gathering video evidence during an altercation or emergency you are offering a quicker resolution to complaints, better organisational transparency and training opportunities for employees.

It is estimated that 6.8 million people in the United Kingdom are lone workers, which is 22% of the 31.2m Uk working population*
Hytera Recordable Body worn cams can ensure there is always a line of communication open for lone workers when they are carrying out their duties in isolation, or within an environment where they are without supervision. The digital body worn body camera can be utilised as a standalone device or linked with a Hytera hand portable two-way radio.
Before even considering the cost of fines and litigation, the HSE estimates that it can cost between £17,000 and £19,000 on average just to investigate a physical assault. It can cost a lot less to prevent one. If an incident does occur, the courts will take the resources available to an organisation into consideration – the Sentencing Council guidelines state that a Corporate Manslaughter fine should be at least £500,000. But it is no defence for an employer to say that they did not have the time, money or resources to reduce risk. There is the possibility of courts imposing publicity orders which can tarnish reputations, and in the worst cases, prison sentences for seniors managers found to be negligent.
If you are concerned about any of the laws surrounding the use of bodycams and the data captured the SIA state:
‘If you view footage recorded by headcams/bodycams solely for the purpose of protecting property or identifying a trespasser, then a Security Guard or Door Supervisor licence would be sufficient. Due to licence integration, a Public Space Surveillance (CCTV) licence would also cover you for this activity.’ You can read more information here.
Hytera, the manufacturer of the bodycams offer two platforms which can be recommended by Radiocoms Systems Ltd. The recommendation will be dependent on the size of your organisation and the quantity of Hytera body cameras you have in your fleet.
Ideal for small, single-site organisations with a low volume of Hytera Bodycam users.
Running on a PC the Smart MDM software collects and stores digital evidence from the Hytera RVM’s via a multi-unit charger. With an intuitive Graphic User Interface (GUI) you can review, manage and share data simply and efficiently.
The software enables users to manage the device comprehensively, query and replay the local data, import and upload the data to the cloud (DEM server) automatically, clear the collected data from the Hytera RVMs automatically, and password protect data to satisfy data protection requirements.
Ideal for multi-site, large organisations with a high volume of Hytera Bodycam users.
The Hytera Digital Evidence Management (DEM) software platform collects and stores all the digital evidence from your Hytera recordable bodycam.
