Frequently Asked Questions
24/7 Soberbreath BrAC Monitoring FAQs
How does the Soberlink Device work
Soberlink Cellular Devices test for the presence of alcohol in human breath and use facial recognition to confirm identity during each breath test. BAC results are wirelessly transmitted in real-time via Verizon’s Private Network to Soberlinks' cloud-based management software. All "positive" test, or questionable facial recognition flags must be verified by a human, i.e., the PSA. All testing is routinely monitored by a PSA for consistent human verification, and not relied upon solely on the facial recognition software.
What are Soberlinks' key advantages over other monitoring methods
The Soberlink Cellular Device is the only remote alcohol monitoring system cleared by the FDA. Since 2011, Soberlink has been the leader in real-time, remote alcohol monitoring with solutions for court ordered monitoring, child custody monitoring, and recovery management monitoring. Soberlink’s robust tamper detection, reliability, and proven track record separates itself from other alcohol monitoring systems.
How accurate are the test results
The Soberlink Device contains a professional-grade fuel-cell sensor with a detection range of 0.000% – 0.400% BAC and accuracy level of +/- .005 BAC. The fuel cell that Soberlink uses is globally trusted and used for high-end workplace and law enforcement breath alcohol instruments. If you would like to learn more about the fuel-cell technology Soberlink uses, you can visit the fuel cell manufacturer’s website at www.dart-sensors.com.
Has Soberlink been challenged in court
Yes. Soberlink has successfully testified, defended, and validated the accuracy and reliability of the Device in court hearings.
What is considered a violation, and what happens after
A violation occurs when a candidate breaches a condition ordered by court or other agency. As it relates to Soberlink BrAC monitoring it is considered when a missed or failed breath sample is given, or if the device is tampered with in any way. Any violation that occurs will be reported immediately to one or more of the following appropriate agencies: the prosecuting attorneys, court, LEO, or other agency.
