Body camera adoption within the cleaning sector is currently unevenly spread with deployments tending toward problematic areas and specific sites. Wide spread adoption is happening gradually with more and more cleaning  staff wearing them than before. Whether it is right for your staff will depend on its individual circumstances. It is important however to try and ensure that adoption does not get in the way of a staff member’s core responsibilities and is only noticeable when it is needed.

There are a number of reasons that The Partner MK4 body worn camera is ideal for cleaning staff. Firstly, it is smaller than similar high-specification models and as such, lighter and less noticeable while going about your duties. It is also easy to use with single button activation, clearly labelled and obvious when in recording mode. It is highly robust and does not require WIFI, cellular data or any form of network to function. It is also highly robust and resistant to water with an IP67 rating.

Simply designate a computer or laptop on site or back at the office as the downloading station. Plug-in a solo or multi-dock and leave the DEMS running. Staff come in for their shift and take a camera and mount it on their uniform. During the day if an incident occurs, the staff member should press record. Once the incident has finished, they can then press and hold record again to turn it off. At the end of their shift, they can drop their camera into the dock and clock out. The camera will automatically download and save all footage, clear the camera and charge it. Management should be notified of any incidents so that they can action the footage. Rinse and repeat.

This depends entirely on how often footage is being recorded and in what resolution using what settings. Higher resolution and settings like pre-record will drain the footage more quickly. Continuous recording is also the fastest way to use up battery and storage. If you only record during incidents then you should be able to go days without needing to dock. The Partner MK4 offers over 100 + hours of standby and up to 15 hours of continuous recording.

It might seem strange that we highlight The Partner MK4’s lack of a screen so much. We do this because in our experience, a screen is a massive hinderance to operational success. They make body cameras heavier, more likely to break, harder to clean, more expensive and they don’t really help in any way. This is also why the world leader in body cameras, Axon, does not have screens on their cameras. This is particularly important for physical workers like cleaners and custodians.

In many cases footage resolution can be quite academic, especially for cleaners body cameras. 1080p is already high definition, is 1440p really necessary? Every manager has their priorities, some like crystal clear video for identifying suspects while others tend toward battery conservation. Higher frame rates mean that more frames are available when reviewing footage per second, this also has its advantages for identifying suspects. A low frame rate with low resolution however can be quite detrimental when submitting footage for evidence.

The Partner MK4 actually has both an extra long pre and post record. The Pre-record function allows the camera to constantly be recording footage and storing it in its buffer for a pre-determined amount of time. Once that time, 30s, 60s, 120s etc. has elapsed, the footage is dumped. If record is hit, the footage currently in the buffer will be attached to the new recording. This allows for cleaners to capture the lead up to an incident rather than just once things has escalated. Post record prevents staff from turning off the camera and undertaking illegal actions such as assaulting a member of the public without record.

An ingress protection rating, IP rating, sometimes called an IPX rating, essentially tells you how water and dust resistant a particular piece of electronics is. The Partner MK4 body camera has an IP67 rating meaning that an assailant cannot simply take some liquids of the shelf and douse the camera to prevent footage being captured. This helps ensure that custodians can continue to record despite a suspect’s “ingenuity”.

The great thing about The Partner MK4 and The Partner DEMS is that they do not involve ongoing costs such as cloud storage or licensing fees. When you buy The Partner MK4, you own it outright. When you buy a The Partner DEMS single PC lifetime license, you can use it indefinitely on the computer that it is installed to. You can also use as many body cameras as you want on a single license.

Cloud storage at its most basic sense just means stored on someone else’s computer vs stored on your own computer. This can be a double-edged sword. If you do not have a stable network or WIFI connection, you have to rely on cellular data which is incredibly expensive over time. It also means that you will have ongoing cloud storage fees on a monthly or annual basis. With the latest iteration of The Partner Body Camera system, we wanted to ensure that there were no ongoing fees to run it which is why we use a locally installed solution.  This also helps make it more accessible for cost sensitive industries like cleaning.

The Advanced Encryption Standard 256 bit is the industry standard for footage encryption in the global body camera market. Encryption is necessary for any companies that plan to capture and store body worn video footage in the UK thanks to GDPR. In order to remain GDPR compliant, any footage that is recorded by cleaning staff body cameras would need to be thoroughly secured. This means that if a body camera is stolen, there would be no chance that the footage could be accessed by an unauthorised user. The Partner MK4 has several layers of protection on top of the AES256 encyption.

For users who buy stand alone cheap body cameras, like Boblovs on Amazon, will know all too well the frustrations of manually plugging in, entering the password, opening file explorer, navigating to the USB drive, copying across your files and then clearing them from the camera. The Partner DEMS automates this entire process and simply requires cleaning staff to drop the camera in the dock.

The industry standard for body camera mounting is the KlickFast system. A wide range of mounting options is available in this system including harnesses, garment retrodocks, clip on docks and more. The Partner MK4 includes a KlickFast stud as standard and is compatible with all official KlickFast docks. The Partner MK4 also comes with a crocodile clip if you prefer this method.

Absolutely, like all The Partner Body Cameras products, The Partner MK4 and The Partner DEMS are both covered by the Interconnective Technical Support Team who are available during the week, 9 – 5 on 01722 444 847.
