In fact, with the video visitation system, authorized personnel can monitor and control all aspects of the conference. Using secure technology, the video visitation essentially operates like a video voip conference. Recordings and live monitoring of conversations can take place using simple key commands.
Secure and privileged conferences can also occur allowing appropriate discussions between inmates and lawyers, clergy, judges, U.S. Marshalls and credentialed visitors. They are able to make their visits from the comfort of their offices, and saving the cost of travel. The video visitation scheduling can also alleviate time constraints from normal visitation.

Depending on the facility administration, scheduling can be initiated by families as long as they fit your guidelines.
In situations that visitation could be a problem, the authorized employees can listen in, mute, record, and control various other features of a video visitation system. Monitoring can now occur at a workstation versus face to face.
Selecting a video visitation system can put all monitoring, access and control of simultaneous visits in the incarceration facilities hands. It improves their effectiveness at monitoring situations as well and can provide some cost savings even when considering that all conversations and interactions can be recorded for later analysis.
