IMPORTANT!

READ THIS FIRST

Before using your new BC-1 Body Camera for the first time, we 

recommend performing the following steps to maximize the usability of 

your new BC-1 Body Camera.

Body Camera Setup

1.  Charge the BC-1 Body Camera using the 120 Volt, 12 Volt or USB 

cable.  

See 

Charging the Battery

 section for details.

2.  Download and install the BC-1 Body Camera software from the 10-8 

Video Website:  

http://www.10-8video.com/support/downloads/

3.  If the software is not already running, launch the BC-1 Body Camera 

software. 

4.  Enter the user name and password to log into the software. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5.  Plug the included USB cable into your computer, then plug the other 

end of the cable into the BC-1 Body Camera.

6.  The BC-1 Body Camera will automatically synchronize its internal 

clock to the date and time on the computer to which it is connected.

7.  The LCD Display on the BC-1 Body Camera will display four (4) 

asterisks (*)  indicating it is waiting for you to enter the password 

to access the internals of the device. 

The default password for the 

camera is 0000

 - four zeros.

8.  Use the BC-1 Body Camera to set the proper badge number for the 

officer who is to use the camera. The BC-1 Software allows you to set 

both the unit and user ID for each unit used. This information will 

display on every video along with the date and time.

9.  We also recommend changing the password at this point. 

If you connect the BC-1 Body Camera to a computer and do not 

enter the proper password, it will only charge its battery and you 

cannot access the camera’s internal files.

For maximum security of your files, we recommend changing the 

default password after setting up the BC-1 Body Camera for the 

first time.

Default Login:

User: 0000

Password: 000

Note:

 You can also press the Play button four (4) times to 

           advance through the password screen without having to  

           change the password.

•  120 Volt Charger (Fastest Charge Rate)
•  12 Volt car charger (Fast)
•  USB cable connected to a powered USB computer port (Slow) 

 

 

 

 

 

Charging Battery with USB Cable

Press and hold both the 

“Power”

 and 

“REC”

 buttons to reset the BC-1 

Body Camera to its factory defaults.

Changing BC-1 Body Camera Password

The BC-1 Body Camera has its own internal password, or PIN, that 

protects its files from being accessed by a computer without permission. 

Changing BC-1 Body Camera PIN

1.  Connect the BC-1 Body Camera to a computer using the USB cable.

2.  Create a file 

“UK.txt”

 on your computer with a text editor such as 

Notepad. Do not use a word processor such as Microsoft Word. It will 

introduce data that will corrupt the file.

3.  Add the following line to the first line of the file: 

 

UK 0000 1111

 

In this example we have set the PIN to “1111”, feel free to set it to any 

four (4) digit number.

4.  Save the file to the root folder of the BC-1 Body Camera.

screen will display “MSDC” and the battery icon.  After 10 seconds the BC-1 

Body Camera will enable the screensaver for the LCD.  Press any button on 

the BC-1 Body Camera to exit the screensaver.

When the battery is fully charged, the red 

LED Status Indicator

 will turn 

off and the battery status icon will display the “Fully Charged” icon.
