Instant and reliable voice communication between staff or between staff and inmates is an essential requirement of modern prisons, remand centres and police lock ups – protecting officers and ensuring an adequate duty of care in today’s environment of low staffing levels. CellGuard provides the complete audio communication solution, including officer duress, cell intercom, discrete monitoring, door intercom, background music distribution and public address announcements Utilizing TCP/IP technology, coupled with fibre optic links, ensures immediate full duplex communications between inmates and officers. All data and voice links are digitally recorded at the gatehouse control. An entire site may be monitored, actioned and administered via the Central Controller or may be subcontracted to any Officer Station. Each Officer Station is configured to operate via fibre optic links to the Central Controller and controls cell and door access intercoms in its cell block. Supervisory staffs are able to make contact with any cell via the Officer Station or via the Central Control handset. After hours, the Officer Station may be routed to another Officer’s Station or to a centralised location. This redirection allows flexible staffing arrangements to minimise the costs associated with overtime and night shift. All intercom points and Officer Stations are constructed of stainless steel and all components are vandal proof, fluid resistant and employ tamper monitoring. Additionally, all Call buttons are continuously monitored, utilising a highly sophisticated self-diagnostic function. Call operation is periodically simulated to ensure button, microphone and speaker operation. This innovation has earned CellGuard the reputation of being the world’s most reliable and trusted custodial intercom product. CellGuard also provides integrated prisoner entertainment with a selectable music channel available in each cell to comply with international treaty obligations on prisoner welfare.
