Scottsdale company’s gun sensor activates police body cameras

gunPHOENIX — The Scottsdale-based company TASER announced Monday the release of a gun holster attachment that will activate body cameras when the gun is removed.

The first of its kind, the ‘Axon Signal Sidearm’ attaches to most common gun holsters and turns on any Axon body camera in a 30-foot radius if a firearm is drawn.

“When law enforcement officers must draw a weapon, the last thing they should worry about is their technology,” TASER CEO and Co-Founder Rick Smith said in a release. “The Signal Sidearm will give officers the same confidence in their technology that already exists in encounters involving Smart Weapons that use our Signal technology.”

The device is wireless and battery powered, and its battery is said last a year and a half.

The Signal Sidearm will be available later this year.
