HomeWAV Difference

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.
–Albert Einstein

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

Alternatives

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
