Charging the Battery

 section for details.

2.  Install the software using the 

Installing the BC-1 Software

 section 

below as a guide.

First-Time Usage

Setting Up the BC-1 Software

The software is designed to install like any typical Windows program. 

The first time you run the BC-1 software you will need to configure it. This 

process only needs to be completed once. 

Read through these instructions 

completely before beginning.

1.  Start the BC-1 Body Camera software. A welcome screen will display 

while it is loading.

2.  The first screen you will be presented with will establish the primary 

administrator account. This person will be the primary user and 

software administrator.

3.  Enter the Administrator’s user name and password and click on the 

“Next” button.

First-Time Usage

First-Time Usage

4.  Now choose the location on the computer’s hard drive where videos 

from your BC-1 Body Camera will be stored. This location can be 

anywhere on the local system or on a network.  

 

 

 

 

5.  Choose whether to enable the Auto Delete Feature and its duration by 

entering a number in the box or disabling it by leaving the field alone.

6.  Click on the 

“Next” button

 to continue.

7.  Next you’ll set up the basic call types that will be available to help 

officers categorize and tag videos. Example call types would be DUI, 

Assault, Domestic, etc. You can add more later if needed. 

7.  Click on the 

“Next” button

 to continue.

8.  Now you will be adding officers that will be issued the BC-1 Body 

Cameras. You will also need to decide who has administrator rights to 

the software.  

 

 

 

 

 

9.  Enter the officer’s badge ID, their name and set their access level. The 

officer’s badge number along with the date and time will be recorded 

on each video the BC-1 Body Camera records.

10. Click on the 

“Save Officer Account” button

 to save their account.

11. When you are finished adding officer accounts, click on the

 at the bottom of the window.

12. Now you are going to associate each BC-1 Body Camera with the 

officer accounts you just set up. 

Administrators

 have more authority and can change passwords, 

review all user videos, etc. 

Non-Administrator

 users can archive and tag videos and only 

review videos taken by them.

Ensure the location you choose to store your files has sufficient 

space. Video files can consume large amounts of storage space.

Associating a BC-1 Camera with Its Officer Account

1.  Plug in a single BC-1 Body Camera to the computer  

 

 

 

 

 

2.  Once the computer detects the BC-1 Body Camera, the BC-1 Body 

Camera will beep and the LCD screen will turn off.

3.  Click on the 

“Find Device” button

. The software and computer will 

search for the BC-1 Body Camera.

4.  Once the software detects the BC-1 Body Camera, assign an officer to 

it by choosing the officer’s account and clicking the 

“Assign” button

.

5.  When the software has finishing assigning the officer to the BC-1 Body 

Camera disconnect the BC-1 Body Camera from the computer.

6.  Repeat steps 1 - 6 as needed. When complete, click the 

“Done”

 button.

 

 

If this is the first time you have connected the BC-1 Body 

Camera to this computer, you may have to wait for your 

computer to automatically install the proper drivers.

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

have the software running, it will only charge its battery and you 

cannot access the camera’s internal files.

However, if you have the BC-1 Body Camera software running 

while the BC-1 Body Camera is connected, you can also use 

Windows Explorer to access it as a flash drive.

Software

Using the Software

In order to access the files on the BC-1 Body Camera, the software must be 

running before plugging the BC-1 Body Camera into your computer.

1.  Start the BC-1 Body Camera software.

2.  Enter your badge number and software password to log in. If you are 

logging in as the Administrator, enter your user name into the 

Badge 

Number field

.

3.  Plug the BC-1 Body Camera into your computer using the supplied 

USB cable.

4.  Once the computer detects that the BC-1 Body Camera has been 

connected to it, the BC-1 Body Camera will beep and its LCD screen 

will turn off.

5.  At this point the software is copying the files from the BC-1 Body 

Camera to your designated storage location. 

DO NOT

 disconnect it 

during this process.  

 

Once the files appear in the main interface you can perform any of the

Deleting Files

It’s not necessary to delete your files from the BC-1 Body Camera once 

the files are backed up to the central file repository. When the BC-1 Body 

Camera’s internal storage is filled to capacity it is designed to automatically 

overwrite the oldest files. 

This eliminates the need to worry about maintaining an empty storage 

card. Just make sure your BC-1 is regularly synced with the BC-1 Body 

Camera Software and all of your files are preserved.

However, for convenience, we have included the ability to delete 

individual files via the admin interface.

Backing Up Files

Every time you connect your BC-1 Body Camera to your designated 

computer your latest files are automatically copied to your file repository. 

Just remember to sync your BC-1 Body Cameras regularly to your 

designated repository computer.

Managing Files

From the main interface you can view the media, tag the files with more 

information, print a report on a file and view the file’s access log.

Viewing a File

“Play” icon

 in the row of file you wish to 

view.

2.  Once loaded, the file will display in a new window.

Software

To save time backing up your files and to reduce file redundancy, 

only files that have not already been backed up are copied each 

time you connect the BC-1 Body Camera to your computer.

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

have the software running, it will only charge its battery and you 

cannot access the camera’s internal files.

However, if you have the BC-1 Body Camera software running 

while the BC-1 Body Camera is connected, you can also use 

Windows Explorer to access it as a flash drive.
