Making use of facial recognition to authenticate a user, this app by E-Cell, Inc. uses location updates and random picture and video check-ins to monitor selected low and medium risk offenders placed under a house arrest program by the court.
Automatic alerts are generated when the user goes out of designated home and work geo zones or if they do not respond to check-in requests in a timely fashion.
Due to the high cost of correctional services and overcrowding in prisons, this solution is a cost effective and reliable tool used by agents to monitor such offenders.
Additional sign up is required before you can use this app.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
