How SCRAM CAM Works
The SCRAM CAM Bracelet tests automatically, every 30 minutes, around the clock. You will feel a slight vibration whenever the bracelet is taking a reading. Most users report that they get used to the vibrations within the first day.
SCRAM CAM is different than breath, blood, or urine testing because it’s actually sampling your perspiration, automatically, to measure for alcohol consumption. It measures what is known as insensible perspiration, which is on our skin at all times. The anklet measures the alcohol that comes through the skin in the area around your ankle. It’s completely noninvasive and unobtrusive during your daily activities or while you sleep.
The SCRAM CAM Base Station
The SCRAM CAM Base Station plays an important part in your monitoring. The bracelet stores all test results until the data downloads to your base station, which will automatically transmit the data to your assigned agent. Downloads are done on a predetermined schedule, and you must be within 30 feet of the base station during this time in order for the data transmission to take place. Your base station can connect over a tradition or digital telephone line, cellular, or through your home Internet using Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
