Livestreaming from Axon Air powered by DroneSense can be accessed both from Axon Air Web under the Operations Hub tab on the left side of the page, and in Axon Evidence (evidence.com) under the Respond tab along the top of the page.
Initiating a Livestream
To initiate a livestream either on Operations Hub and/or Axon Respond, the pilot must be flying the drone under a mission.
After you log in to the Axon Air flight control app, you will be prompted to choose a mission to join.
Available missions are listed on the left.
Tap a mission to view its details, and tap Join Mission to join.
If you are joining a shared mission that requires entering a mission code, tap the + button and enter the code in the window that appears.
If you don't want to join a mission and/or live-stream, tap Fly Offline. Note that when flying offline, your feeds will not appear in Operations Hub or Axon Respond.
If you want to turn off a live-stream mid-flight, you will need to leave the mission. You can select a different mission or opt to fly offline by tapping the user menu at the top of the screen.
