FLIR Launches Body Cameras Unified With VMS (TruWitness)

By: Sean Patton, Published on Dec 11, 2018

While FLIR is best known for their thermal cameras, now they have expanded into body cameras, launching TruWITNESS, a public safety focused body wearable camera 'unified' with their VMS offering.

In this note, based on a conversation with FLIR we look at:

  • What is TruWitness?
  • Does it integrate with 3rd Party Systems?
  • How is it deployed and managed?
  • How much does it cost?
  • How is it sold?
  • How does it compare to the competition?
