T&E Program

How the Connected Auto-Activation System Works

Automatic. Simple. Reliable.


Firearm Draw

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

Reliable Connection

Wired connection ensures consistent auto-activation.

Camera Activation

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

Pre-Event Record

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