How the camera auto-activation system works

Automatic. Simple. Reliable.


Firearm Draw

As an officer removes their firearm from the Safariland® 7TS™ holster, the Camera Auto-Activation System is triggered, activating the VIEVU® body worn camera.


Wired connection ensures consistent auto-activation.

Camera Activation

Initiated by the firearm draw, the camera automatically begins recording until stopped by the officer.


Once the firearm is drawn, every critical moment is captured, including the 30 seconds prior.
