Signal Sidearm has four operating modes; Low Power Mode, Test Mode, Field Mode, and Mute Mode. Low Power Mode is used for shipping and storing the sensor. Test Mode is used to calibrate the sensor and verify correct operations. The sensor should be in Field Mode during normal operations. Mute Mode allows you to remove your sidearm from the holster, but NOT alert Axon cameras to record.
The sensor is “asleep” in Low Power Mode. We recommend keeping a sensor in this mode when
it is not in use for an extended period of time, such as during shipping, storage, or bonding.
- After the sensor is installed, press the button to wake up the sensor and
enter Placement Mode (see the Axon Signal Sidearm Adhesive Mount
Installation Guide for more on using Placement mode).
With a pistol in the holster, the LED blinks red to indicate the sensor
entered Placement Mode. If you do not continue with the Placement
Mode or Test Mode in 30 seconds, then the sensor goes back to sleep.
