two beeps will repeat every 2 minutes (audio notifications can be deactivated
if necessary).

Recharging the Battery and Uploading Data
If you do not have an Axon Dock, upload video with a Windows compatible computer
using Evidence Sync:
Ensure the Axon Body 2 camera is off. Insert the
camera into the Axon Dock as shown. The dock
automatically uploads data to services,
deletes videos from the camera, and charges the
camera. (The camera must be registered to your account.)
At the beginning of the next shift, ensure that your
camera (if one has been assigned to you) displays
with a green upload status LED before removing it
from the dock.
