Remote Video for Sobriety Testing
Two FCI Application Success Stories
CSSS, an industry leader in security monitoring, wanted to offer home arrest monitoring
services to local and state authorities. They chose FCI to develop a unique
video monitoring application that combines Microsoft Windows-based
software and low-cost, remote video cameras. This specialized application enables
operators at a central location to perform sobriety tests via remote video cameras.
The application, developed for Sentencing Alternatives, a division of CSSS, uses
a central database of test subjects and a predetermined schedule to automatically
initiate video calls to remote camera units.
The solution combines Sentencing Alternatives' Video
Information Capture (VICAP)® Client Interview Application (a Windows NT server-based
Administration Application) with a central database and Internet browser communication
capability for reporting test results to various government agencies.
FCI's Remote Video Solution. The VICAP® system transmits a full-color live
video picture of the client along with the breath analyzer readout to the monitoring
center. Results can be captured for the record as a still color photo.
