Holster Aware

In critical situations officers must focus on protecting themselves or others. Yardarm Holster Aware wirelessly activates an officer’s body-worn camera when they may not have the time, or free hand, for manual activation.

Be Holster Aware
  • Holster Aware can be installed on the industry’s widest range of lethal and non-lethal holsters including firearms, Tasers, and pepper spray.

  • Holster Aware interoperates with the industry’s leading body-worn video providers.

Protect those who serve

In today’s smartphone culture everyone can start recording video in an instant, departments rely on body-worn video to capture the truth of a critical event. But in critical situations hitting record is an afterthought. Departments and officers are both asking for a solution that turns cameras on reliably, leaving no room for dispute and helping build community trust.
