HomeWAV has launched a new no-cost solution for detention and corrections facilities that want to experience all the benefits of remote video visitation without the up-front equipment investment. Pending a HomeWAV site survey, facilities can now get all the necessary equipment, plus installation, maintenance, and support, at zero cost.
The patented HomeWAV system allows facilities to enhance or replace their traditional telephone and in-person visitation programs with video calling technology. Visits as brief as one minute may be initiated by the inmate with no need for advance scheduling or operator assistance. This leads to marked savings in time, labor, and overhead costs, as well as a significant drop in security and safety risks. It also creates a reliable revenue stream for facilities, which receive a share of the profits from HomeWAV’s per-minute usage fees. Despite these significant benefits, the up-front equipment investment for the system’s wall-mounted kiosks and tablet computers has been an entry barrier for some cost-conscious or budget-strapped facilities. HomeWAV’s new soution is designed to offer a no-cost option so that more facilities may benefit from video visitation. Under the new program, facilities can now get their video visitation equipment at no cost, with no monthly fees or revenue deductions. As with all HomeWAV solutions, full installation, training, maintenance, upgrades, and support are included at no charge for the life of the agreement.
