Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex…It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.
HomeWAV’s unique, patent pending, visitation system provides Internet-based video visitation adapted for use in the context of a Detention Facility. So what is the difference between HomeWav’s system and those of competitors?
HomeWAV Visitation System
|Inmate initiates visit direct with approved visitor – no operator assistance required||Other internet visitation systems require detention facility personnel to act as “operator” to connect the visit and to ensure inmate is placed at correct inmate station|
|Inmate and visitor schedule visits directly – no operator assistance required||Other internet visitation systems require detention facility personnel to coordinate scheduling|
|Visits take place as soon as both parties desire||Other visitation systems require minimum 24 hour (up to 2 weeks) advanced scheduling|
|No more missed visits because of rigid pre-set schedule||Advanced scheduling demands lead to missed visits due to intervening events causing frustration to all concerned|
|HomeWAV system provided and installed at no charge||Other visitation systems can cost upwards of $5,000 per station|
|HomeWAV system maintained free of charge for term of contract – 5 years||Competitors charge to maintain their systems|
|Detention facility owns equipment from day one||Competitors retain ownership of their equipment|
|System usage revenue shared with facility monthly – starting first month||Other visitation systems either generate no revenue, less revenue, or revenue sharing is deferred|
|HomeWAV inmate stations placed in common area/day rooms||Face-to-face visits require detention facility personnel to frisk inmates as they are transported between cell block and visitation room|
|No minimum length visit – can be as short as one minute||Competitors internet visitation systems require minimum visit length|
|All payments process through PayPal/third party ecommerce||Detention facility personnel required to collect and administer funds|
|Internet visitation reduces number of visitors entering your facility (experience shows 75% reduction)||Visitors entering facilities generate tremendous demands on detention facility personnel for processing|
