Here we'll answer the most frequently asked questions.
Q: What makes the Wolfcom 3rd Eye different than other body cameras such as the Taser Axon and Vievu?
A: The Taser Axon and Vievu are only body cameras that can record video. The Wolfcom 3rd Eye is actually a "Tool" that a Police Officer can:
Q: [Can the unit be used by itself or
does it need to be attached to a radio?]
A: [The Wolfcom 3rd Eye can also be used as a stand alone unit and does not need a radio to work]
Q: Does the Wolfcom 3rd Eye have Pre-Record?
A: In the past, Pre-Record was needed to compensate for poor battery life. Pre-Record basically recorded the first 30 seconds of video before a recorder was activated. However, there are 2 downfalls to Pre-Record.
1. Only Video is recorded and not Audio.
2. In a realistic situation that quickly turns bad, an officer will think about self preservation first before thinking about activating his recorder. He'll most likely draw his weapon, his pepper spray, baton, or stun device first. In some instances an officer may be fighting for his life. By the time this stressful situation is under control, several minutes would have passed before he will even think about activating his recorder. By that time, the first 30 seconds of the recording is useless.
We've solved the old Pre-Record Problem that other body cameras have by replacing it with the OTR (One Touch Record) Switch, 6 to 12 hour battery life, 7 days stand by time, and 32 GB of Memory that will record and store 17 hours worth of audio and video. Now an Officer can activate his Wolfcom 3rd Eye recorder as soon as he exits his vehicle and leave it on for the entire duration of the incident and turn it off when he is back in his vehicle. Instead of worrying about battery life and worrying about choosing the right moment to begin recording video, He can now concentrate on what matters most.
Q: [How long does the battery last if
A: The Battery should last about 6 hours of Continuous nonstop recording on the lowest resolution setting of 848x480 60FPS. But if your just recording on and off during an average shift, the battery life should be fine and last an entire shift. Continuous non stop recording at the highest resolution of 1080P will be about 3.5 hours.
Q: Is the Wolfcom 3rd Eye waterproof?
A: No. It cannot be submerged in water. The Wolfcom 3rd Eye has a waterproof rating of IP67, IPX3 Rating.
Protected against spraying water - Water spraying up to 60
degrees from vertical at 10 liters/min at a pressure of
80-100kN/m2 for 5 min.
Q: What extra part do I need it to work
with my Radio?
A: All you need is the cable that connects our unit to your radio. Please view our list of cables to see if you radio type is listed. If it is not, Please contact us.
Q: Do you have back end software to
manage files or assets from your body camera?
A: Yes we do. Please click here for our Wolfcom Management Software
Q: Can the GPS application can be
extended to locate officers wearing the 3rd eye equipment in real
A: Currently the Wolfcom unit GPS function cannot locate officers in real time. The GPS sensor built into the unit will only grab the GPS coordinates and snap it onto the video and picture files. We do have plans for live GPS tracking in second or third generations of the Wolfcom 3rd Eye units, but is not available at this time. The technology is available and we believe we can do it. However we do want to sell and make money off our first-generation units before we can do this. In other words we will need to make profit in order to have funds for the research and development of live GPS integration into our units.
Q: Can the video can be 'live streamed'?
Can the video images be streamed live and viewed from a remote
A: Live streaming technology for the Wolfcom third eye is in our opinion, not practical due to technological limitations. Although the technology does exist the video is grainy, slow, unreliable, bulky, and expensive. We have looked into live streaming technology for the Wolfcom third eye but we believe that we will have to wait until technology catches up. I believe that life streaming technology in regards to police body cameras will be of high demand in the future and we have plans to implement it into our product within 2 to 4 years.
