The TASER 7 CEW captures various pieces of information about the device. This is referred to as the device logs.
The data from the logs are uploaded securely to Axon Evidence (Evidence.com) services, where the information is encrypted, stored securely and organized into dashboards that allow your agency to easily monitor the usage and system status of your entire arsenal of TASER 7 CEWs.
The logs provide agencies with a powerful management tool to track usage patterns and help prevent misuse. Activities are grouped by sessions. Each session has a Session Start and a Session End that summarizes the weapon state when it was ARMED and after it was disarmed, and will also include the date and time for each CEW deployment Each entry has a timestamp in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), which Axon Evidence will convert to your local time.
The logs are named Armed Event Log and Maintenance Log.
