Since Smart Start began as an Ignition Interlock company in 1992, we have become the go-to source for DUI clients worldwide. But your clients’ sobriety requirements often extend beyond driving. That’s why our referring partners are now discovering the value of having the best portable alcohol monitoring from Smart Start.
Our comprehensive portfolio of products benefits your clients and your business. Our two portable devices – BreathCheck™ and SmartMobile™ – are recognized as leaders in the portable alcohol monitoring space. An IID can only test clients a few times a day, whenever the client is operating a vehicle. However, the best portable alcohol monitoring can test Breath Alcohol Concentration (BrAC) anytime, day or night.
BreathCheck and SmartMobile both can play a crucial role in personal and judicial markets, such as family and criminal law. But which device do you choose for clients who need a portable monitoring solution?
Take a deeper look and you’ll see the appropriate situation for each device.
The Best Portable Alcohol Monitoring Suite Includes SmartWeb™
A comparison of BreathCheck and SmartMobile actually starts with one important thing they have in common. Our proprietary SmartWeb technology is a comprehensive caseload management tool. As a mobile app or online platform, it’s the backbone for our entire product portfolio.
Regardless of whether our partners select BreathCheck or SmartMobile, they’ve got SmartWeb to monitor their caseload from anywhere. It includes:
- An intuitive dashboard for real-time analytics and reporting.
- Easy customized report generation, including exporting, print or email reports.
- Tracking high-risk clients with powerful sorting and filtering options.
- Schedule or set customized test windows.
- GPS location data stored for every test.
- Real-time notifications of violations.
SmartWeb unites our entire product suite under a single, powerful system. That’s especially important if you’re managing a large client base. Log into one system, one time, and let SmartWeb do the heavy lifting.
BreathCheck: Sleek, Easy-to-Use Solution for Lower-Risk Clients
BreathCheck is cost-effective portable alcohol monitoring in a discreet device no larger than a business card. It’s app-based, and perfect for lower-risk clients who need quick, easy portable monitoring.
BreathCheck offers GPS location, facial detection, video verification and voice detection – all of which help ensure anti-circumvention. All it takes is an inexpensive BreathCheck device, a smartphone, and our free Client Portal app.
Client Portal is a major benefit for BreathCheck users. It allows them to set the device up themselves, and control their account and payment information from within the app.
As if all that weren’t enough, it allows 500 tests before needing to be recharged. That’s double the capacity of any other device.
SmartMobile: Powerful Monitoring for Higher-Risk Clients
SmartMobile is a robust device with full keypad and easy-to-read display screen that stores its data on board. It also has GPS location, facial identification, customized testing and long battery life. SmartMobile is larger than BreathCheck but still fits easily in hand.
SmartMobile is a self-contained solution that fits higher-risk clients. Test data is stored on the device, and meets the Frye standard for admissibility of scientific evidence. It doesn’t require a smartphone, since it communicates via cellular network to disclose violations in real-time or in 24-hour reports – whichever you prefer.
