Cyber Group, Inc.'s JailCellWatch is a comprehensive software-based IP video/sound surveillance system for monitoring prisoners inside their jail cells. It transmits image and audio signals through existing power lines to a monitor and central video server. JailCellWatch provides a 24/7 view and record of in-cell prisoner activity, allowing jail staff to perform virtual "rounds" more often. JailCellWatch can also be a key deterrent against unlawful prisoner behavior, contraband possession/distribution and escape attempts. If a prisoner violates rules, commits offenses, or confesses to crimes while in their cell, a JailCellWatch video and sound recording may be a powerful tool for supporting punishment and prosecution. In addition, it helps protect jail staff from frivolous complaints by prisoners. This video and sound surveillance application provides increased safety for police officers and jail staff while inside a cell with a prisoner during processing or moving. It can also protect prisoners from abuse and neglect.
