Etech Controls Corp. offers medical staff a way to check on inmate patients using an audio and visual intercom system. A panel in the hallway features an intercom that is linked to the cell, shower or bathroom and the conversation is linked to the nurse’s station. Inside the cell, the inmate has an intercom for audio communication and an optional LED control pane for visual observation.
Outside the cell, the staff member can arm the system with a key, turning on an emergency push button in the cell. Upon leaving the cell, the emergency push button is disarmed and each visit is recorded. It also has a key-operated option for the shower and toilet control.
