A new under-door camera has been introduced that features two cameras to provide both forward and upward camera views.

When inserted under a door the two-camera system allows operators to inspect both the interior of a room and the interior side of the door. Real-time video is transmitted to a wireless monitor that allows operators to switch between forward and upward camera views. Monitors are available in a handheld or wrist-mounted version.

Weighing less than 17oz, the Under Door Camera (UDC) Pro from Tactical Electronics increases the visual access available to special operations and tactical teams when inspecting unsecure rooms and barricaded areas.

The UDC Pro houses an SD card recorder and wireless transmission system. The unit is powered by three-volt lithium batteries and measures less than 10ins in length. The all-in-one wireless design eliminates the need for battery packs and additional cords.

It features a telescopic pole that extends up to 20ft, allowing operators to quickly deploy the UDC Pro from a position of cover. The end of the pole connects to the camera unit with a magnetic quick-release attachment. The unit can then be extended into place and swivelled under a door or around a corner.

“Having visual access to what lies inside a room and on the doors’ interior is vital for our tactical operators and first responders,” said Tim Thornton, president of Tactical Electronics. “Domestic threats have increased and developing a camera system that covertly and unobtrusively inspects the interior side of a door is crucial for operator safety, as we witnessed in [the shooting in] Aurora, Colorado.”
