Sleep Mode puts the camera in an idle state that disables recording and buffering. While in this state, automatic activation, if enabled at your agency, will not initiate camera recording.
Note: Sleep Mode requires Axon Body 3 camera Operating System v1.10 or later. The ability to use Sleep Mode is enabled by agency Axon Evidence administrators on the Axon Body 3 camera settings page.
Sleep Mode is useful for situations where camera users may need momentary privacy. The user can enter Sleep Mode from the buffering state in less than 4 seconds, as opposed to turning the camera completely off. Similarly, the camera will exit Sleep Mode and enter a buffering or recording state in less than 4 seconds.
The device audit trail reflects when Sleep Mode is entered and exited. While Sleep Mode can be used an alternative to completely powering down the camera during private situations, it should not be considered a replacement for powering the camera off. Certain background processes are running while the camera is in Sleep Mode and the battery will still deplete while in this mode, just at a slower rate.
