Using iRecord Solutions vs Security Systems for Interview Room Recording

Agencies that conduct interviews and interrogations for casework can help strengthen the criminal justice system by recording audio and video of their evidence. For that, they obviously want a recording solution that’s easy to use. No one wants to deal with a complicated technical process to set up the recording equipment. Detectives and victim advocates already have enough on their minds just to conduct the interview itself. But in an attempt to get a “simple setup,” some agencies can end up choosing a recording system that underdelivers.

Security system cameras may seem like a convenient way to record your interview evidence, but there’s actually a far better fix. Agencies ultimately need an industry-specific solution, and they choose to work with iRecord because the systems are both user-friendly and feature-rich. You don’t have to compromise!

What’s the Biggest Difference with iRecord?

In the pursuit of justice, not all recording systems are created equal. A solution that’s designed with interrogations in mind will provide you with the tools you need to streamline all aspects of case management. What’s more, the right system won’t be convoluted to use.

The biggest difference with an iRecord solution vs security systems for interview evidence recordings is that iRecord was built with input from public safety professionals who would be using the recording equipment and digital evidence management software in real life. iRecord is intended for the law enforcement industry. Security systems are meant to serve an entirely different purpose.

Get Ease of Use with an Industry-Specific Solution

The general attitude around using security systems for recording audio and video is that it’s a “set it and forget it” solution. This alone can make them more appealing to public safety professionals. Rather than physically setting up camera equipment and potentially microphones for each interview session, you simply go with a system that’s already installed. The trouble, though, is that you end up compromising on industry-specific features.

With iRecord, you get the same hassle-free recording that you might expect from a security system setup. If you’re working in an onsite interrogation room, your iRecord high-definition cameras and omnidirectional microphones will be positioned in the right places for uninterrupted, high-quality audio and video. They remain in place, so you don’t have to worry about setup time. Even better, iRecord works with a simple one-touch recording function. Our onsite recording solutions utilize a wall switch to start and stop the recording. It couldn’t be easier. As you walk into the interview room, you can discreetly start recording just by flipping the switch.

iRecord Digital Evidence Management Systems (DEMS)

iRecord solutions integrate with a robust digital evidence management systems (DEMS) to make collaboration better than ever. Using a security system for recording your evidence can’t compete. With iRecord, agencies have the power to immediately share recordings with other approved parties. Other systems don’t have that level of convenience.

By using DEMS there’s more need to rush back and forth with physical copies of your recordings. Instead of a USB flash drive, everyone can get their own secure login to review, annotate, and analyze the interview evidence at any time, from anywhere with an internet connection, on their own device.

Other features that separate iRecord from security systems include the ability to bookmark points in the interview. Our software allows for ease of use through all aspects of digital evidence management. You can make your notes and add meta data right within the recording. That way, you aren’t juggling various details of the case in different applications and save files. Everything is kept in one place, so you can stay organized and get the evidence to the court for review faster.
