Hytera Radios: Your FAQs Answered

 

Making the decision to purchase any piece of equipment for your business can be difficult. Especially when it comes to something as vital as communication devices. Two-way radios and body cameras can be necessary purchases across many industries, including hospitality, construction, aviation, logistics, and even schools. Here at Wall to Wall Communications, we don’t take this decision lightly, and we want to make sure that you are buying the correct equipment for your team’s needs. So in this article, we will be talking about the brand Hytera and some of the key frequently asked questions we get asked about their range of equipment.

What is a Hytera Radio?

The Hytera brand has a selection of both professional and very versatile communication devices. These handheld digital devices offer a range of advanced features which many other models don’t. Such as possible GPS, Lone Worker, Emergency Alarm, Man Down, Bluetooth, and even Remote Monitor.  These pieces of equipment have been carefully engineered to be durable in most working environments, have optimal performance and ease of use.

An interesting example is the  Hytera PDC760 Multi-Mode Radio, which we have on offer here at Wall to Wall Communications. This PMR product truly offers a convergent platform for critical communications across DMR and LTE networks. Powered by Hytera’s very own operating system based on the Android platform, this device is hand-portable and can be described as a ruggedised smartphone. In addition, it also has a mission-critical positioning tracking tool and a third-party application hosting device. 

As well as their state-of-the-art radios, Hytera also provides body-worn cameras, which have helped law enforcement for many years. These cameras are perfect for gathering digital evidence which can easily be transported from the field, straight into the courtroom.

For example, our Hytera VM550 is our entry-level bodycam, which offers a compact and lightweight option compared to other models. This camera can aid in capturing evidence both accurately and efficiently, whilst still having a Full HD video capture. As well as this, the Hytera VM55O has a long list of other impressive features, such as 1080p HD video, a 139 degree diagonal lens, 7+ hours of continuous battery life, both wifi and Bluetooth access built-in.
