RADIO FREQUENCY (RF)

SOLUTIONS

Radio Frequency (RF) technology remains an integral and heavily relied upon
component of electronic monitoring programs across the U.S. Used primarily
as a solution for curfew and home confinement programs, RF provides a reliable
and highly cost-effective way to manage low-level misdemeanants.

Securus Monitoring Solutions has a rich history of innovation in the electronic monitoring industry. Continuing in that tradition, we have brought much-needed technological advancements to radio frequency (RF) electronic monitoring solutions with the introduction of our latest versions of BLUband, our ankle-worn radio frequency (RF) transceiver, and BLUhome®, our stalwart home-based RF receiver.

BLUhome Home-Based RF Receiver

Bringing Radio Frequency into the 21st Century

BLUEhome® Home-Based RF Receiver

Radio Frequency technology continues to play an important and integral role in the efforts of law enforcement and community corrections agencies to use offender electronic monitoring programs to manage offender populations. Knowing this, we took the initiative to upgrade BLUhome, our home-based RF receiver to include features that leverage the most up-to-date technology including:

  • A Fully-Integrated Biometric Fingerprint Scanner

  • GPS Capabilities for Additional Location Recognition

  • 4G (LTE) Cellular Modem for Data and Voice Communication

  • 2.25” x 3.75” Touchscreen Back-Lit LCD Display

The addition of the biometric fingerprint scanner and GPS capabilities provide agencies with the ability to verify the location of both the enrollee and the BLUhome device at regularly scheduled intervals. In the event that BLUhome detects that the enrollee has moved out of RF detection range, the device emits an audible notification requiring the enrollee to prove they are present by authenticating their identity via the biometric fingerprint scanner. If the enrollee fails to verify they are indeed present, BLUhome alerts the agency via VeriTracks, our web-based electronic monitoring and reporting platform.

What’s more, BLUhome also includes the standard features that agencies have come to rely on from the most reliable RF monitoring solution on the market today:

  • Accurate Recording of the Date and Time When Enrollee Enters and
    Leaves RF Signal Range

  • Built-In Handset for Two-Way Communication

  • Adjustable RF Signal Range

  • In the Event of a Power Interruption, Internal Backup Battery Powers
    the Unit for up to 72 Hours

  • Built-In Memory Stores Approximately 10,000 Events

  • Seamless Integration with BLUband, Our One-Piece Ankle-Worn Transceiver and BLUtag, our One-Piece GPS Ankle-Worn Solution

BLUband RF Tracking Solution

BLUband™ RF Transceiver

BLUband is our small, lightweight and extremely durable ankle-worn radio frequency (RF) transceiver. Designed to work in tandem with our BLUhome home-based receiver, BLUband records and reports the date and time when an enrollee enters or leaves a designated location. When used together, BLUband and BLUhome create an extremely effective solution for home confinement monitoring as the ankle transceiver and home monitoring unit continuously communicate with one another to monitor the presence of the enrollee while they are at home. BLUhome then directly communicates with our 24/7/365 Monitoring Center to report the enrollee’s curfew compliance.

BLUband is a feature-rich solution that has become the industry standard for RF monitoring:

  • Built-In Extended Battery Life

  • Rugged Contruction Made of Military-Grade, Hypoallergenic ABS Plastic

  • Immediately Reports Tampers Within RF Signal Range and Records Any Tamper Occuring Outside of RF Signal Range

  • Requires NO Special Tools to Install

  • BLUband was Designed to Seamlessly Integrate with BLUhome
