Audax is proud to announce it has secured the provision of a significant number of their latest body worn video cameras, Bio-AX®, for Mitie Security’s frontline security team in Regent Street. Owned by The Crown Estate and managed by JLL, Regent Street is renowned as a high-profile location featuring some of the most luxurious and well-known retail and lifestyle brands in the world. As part of Mitie’s security provision for the area, street patrols will now have the added reassurance provided by Audax’s world-leading body worn video solutions.
Audax has been highly involved in implementing this project from the very beginning, not only supplying the hardware and software required but also installation, training, and ongoing support.
With Bio-AX®, Mitie has access to world leading technology. Bio-AX® can be remotely commanded to record and live stream video and audio, and report current GPS location, all from the control room. Previously this has been a choice for the wearer alone, (which it still is). However, managers now have oversight and situational awareness of their assets ‘on the ground’, as well as complete visibility to confirm compliance and professional standards are met. These features make Bio-AX® an invaluable tool for Mitie to ensure their prestigious clients like JLL and their customers are afforded the professionalism and highs level of service they expect and deserve.
As part of the project, Audax® also provided the camera management solution, which features web based visual management and location system all hosted by the Secure Audax® Cloud with Video Storage. With a direct panic alarm on every camera, push to talk (PTT) Communication and active GPS location, this All-in-One device makes is an essential security asset as well as a communication tool in its own right.
Manging Director of Audax®, Adam Liardet comments, “Our Audax® Bio-AX® camera has been designed and built with our core customer base at its heart. This camera has some unique features, and we are proud to be market innovators yet again. Early adopters such as Mitie have been quick to identify these advances and ensure that their operatives and their clients are benefiting from the best technology that a UK manufacturer of body worn video can offer.
“At Audax® we are truly passionate about protecting those who protect us against aggression and abuse. While we have proven time and again that our body worn cameras do mitigate some risk, the active tracking and live video streaming provide a further safety net and provides indisputable evidence to support a prosecution.”
Mitie’s technical project lead for the trials described it as “an all-round hit… really impressed with the software and hardware, it has exceeded our expectations”.
Adam continues, “it is obviously great to hear this feedback and we appreciate the trust that Mitie’s System and Security teams have placed in us. It is a privilege to provide the end-to-end body worn video solution to protect the wellbeing of the security team at this well respected, historic, and famous location in London. We look forward to building on this initial success with other locations in the future.”
