HydraSOS

HydraSOS (Storage-On-Site), built on the VisioLogix Hydra web technology eco-system, represents a web based evidence management solution that removes the budgetary unknowns and limitations of a typical cloud based system by keeping the data storage on site and the web application in the cloud.

HydraSOS solves the unknown cost equation by storing files on premise, eliminating the erratic operating costs associated with file access and storage requirements in the cloud. The storage on site solution provides a more responsive user experience and managed cost projections that can be easily calculated and budgeted. There are no more unknowns or hidden items. HydraSOS is a best of both worlds hybrid solution focused on performance and cost control, while delivering a comprehensive evidence management system that is easy to use, easy to manage and feature rich.

Forever Grateful

We appreciate our valued customers for their feedback and comments as it is used to improve our product and services. We are forever grateful for their reviews, good or bad, and will be posting them here.

“In June of 2017, I began the process of evaluating new body worn cameras for my agency after encountering customer service issues with the company we previously used. It is at this time that I began to speak with Jay Shah at Visiologix concerning their new body worn cameras and C3 Sentinel client software. My department conducted testing of their product for several months, and ultimately we chose Visiologix to become our new body worn camera provider. After receiving our new equipment, Jay assisted me in getting all of it set up even though he had to go out of the country on personal business. Jay is someone that I have contacted at all hours of the day and night, and he has been very responsive to the needs of my agency. I have also worked with Hanh Dang in the installation of our new docking station, and he was instrumental in getting that equipment tied into our C3 Sentinel program with no issues to date. We have been using Visiologix’s body worn cameras for several months with only minor issues that have come up. The issues that we have had have been rectified in a timely manner with minimal downtown for our equipment.”

Lt. Patrick N. Fortenberry – Greer Police Department

“I just want to express my gratitude for assisting us in our transition from our old body cam system to Visiologix. The Visiologix products are easy to operate, efficient, and provide quality video/audio. The customer service you provided during the switch was outstanding; and remains so since our switch. Thank you again for you continued help.”

Captain Brent McCain, Paragoud Police Department

“I would like to take this opportunity to express how please we are with the HD Protech (VisioLogix) IT Support Staff. During the last three years we have been with them, Jay & Hanh have been simply amazing. They are polite, professional & precise at all times. Even during Hurricane Harvey Jay remained dedicated to handling our complaints and accommodated our concerns from his residence, which I believe he was trapped in for at least week. As for the C3 Sentinel Software, it couldn’t be more user friendly and easy to navigate even for the most technologically challenged individuals like myself. Keep up the good work!”

Captain Kevin S. Nastasi, Greenwich Township Police Department

“In our industry, quality is paramount. Whether speaking to equipment or customer service, the professionals at Visiologix have far exceeded our expectations in every way. Their technical service team is second to none and continue to provide expedient customer service and comprehensive solutions for our every need; be it software or hardware. We are very pleased with their commitment to excellence and look forward to a successful partnership in the coming years with Visiologix.”

Lt. Travis Engler – Criminal Investigations Division, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office

“The VisioLogix camera is ideal for our department application. The audio and video quality is great! The camera covers more area then cameras we’ve had in the past and the audio is nice and clear. The night vision option was another reason we purchased these cameras. The software is user friendly, easy to use and automatically purges accidental recording and recordings that have no relevance that saves on storage space where we know that storing video evidence is an issue.

I must say the tech support is the best I’ve ever had to deal with. Jay is always there when I need him and he periodically checks up on my department to make sure everything is running good with our cameras. Now days this does not happen with vendors.”

Sergeant Brad McNeill – Parke County Sheriff’s Office

“We have tried other camera systems in the past but the Visiologix CITE M1G3 camera is a cut well above the rest. The video and audio on recordings are crystal clear. The ease of use, tremendous battery life, GPS function and night vision are the best we’ve dealt with. They’re built tough but are easy to use. Downloading and managing files is a snap. When used with the C3 Sentinel management system we’ve got a well-functioning body worn camera system that not only meets but exceeds all requirements for our department. The other selling point was the outstanding support and customer service. They’re always prompt and courteous. I highly recommend this system for any agency looking for cutting-edge quality and ease of use by its officers.”

David Smith, Marshal – Red River Marshal’s Office

“I am glad to say that I am completely satisfied with the body worn video cameras we have recently purchased from VisioLogix. The cameras are incredibly easy to use and have great video & audio quality. They are affordable, even on a small budget and the customer service is top notch.”

Justin N. Collom – Chief of Police, Tuckerman Police Department
