NEW IN VIDEOMANAGER 15.3
VideoManager 15.3 introduces the ability to put your VB400 into safety mode automatically, shortly after it has been undocked.
SAFETY MODE UPON UNDOCKING
Since VideoManager 15.0, it has been possible to manually put a VB400 into safety mode using a preconfigured gesture. While in safety mode, VB400s will not respond to any button presses until they are prompted to exit safety mode using another preconfigured gesture. This mode saves battery life; it is ideal if the operator knows their VB400 will not be needed at short notice, or if the way you use the VB400 means that it might be stored for a period after being assigned.
Now, it is possible to configure a VB400 ahead of time, so it will enter safety mode automatically after it has been undocked - this means that the operator does not need to remember to manually trigger safety mode.
To turn on safety mode upon undocking:
Navigate to the Admin tab.
Select the Devices pane.
Click the Device Profiles section.
Click Go to profile next to the relevant profile.
Scroll down to the Power Management section.
Set Enter safety mode if idle after undocking to On.
In the Controls section, ensure that there is a gesture which will prompt the VB400s in this profile to exit safety mode.
⚠ If a gesture to exit safety mode is not configured, VB400s in this profile will be completely inert and unable to record footage. 8.Click Save settings.
⚠ The VB400 does not enter safety mode instantly on undocking; If the VB400 starts recording (e.g. by gesture, or peer-assisted-recording) within 10 seconds after it has been undocked, or is configured to pre-record immediately after being undocked, then it will not enter safety mode.
