The 20/30 is the most technically advanced ignition interlock product on the market. Our SSI-20/30 device is packed with features to deliver the best customer experience.
Our Personal Alcohol Breath Tester is a feature rich portable Alcohol Breath Tester that is convenient to use.
The SSI-20/30 can also be combined with GPS Technology to give realtime reporting on specific violations.
The SSI-20/30 can be combined with the Photo ID camera module, which is mounted to the inside of the driver's side windshield, about halfway up from the dash. The device captures a picture of the driver at the time that a test is taken. The unit stores the picture electronically with a date and time stamp that corresponds with the event. The camera works well in very dark situations as well as bright light scenarios.
By using the Photo ID module, Smart Start is able to positively identify the user of the device and minimize tampering, since a picture is being recorded. The device has several tamper detection features to prevent the user from covering the camera with tape or disconnecting it. When tampering is detected, the unit will send a message to the interlock aborting the test, thus preventing the user from starting the vehicle. In addition, the camera unit can also present peace of mind to the person that might share their vehicle with others. In the event that another person causes a violation, the monitoring authority will be able to see who the person was taking the test.
The SMART START IN-HOM CELLULAR unit offers the same features as the SMART START IN-HOM device. The advantage of the cellular model is that it allows for daily reporting, and can automatically update test schedules over the air. This unit is designed for the person whose monitoring authority requires daily reports to confirm sobriety. This device is also portable and only requires the user to power it up, and maintain an adequate cellular connection.
In the event that a cellular connection cannot be obtained, the IN-HOM CELLULAR will continue to operate as an IN-HOM, so tests can still be taken according to the assigned schedule.
