RELIANT™ EMU, security you can trust

Back to News Room


TORONTO, Monday, June 12, 2017–RELIANT™ EMU (Electronic Monitoring Unit) is a portable breath alcohol tester connected to a smartphone using a proprietary app for electronic monitoring of subjects. The device uses the smartphone cellular connection and Bluetooth connectivity to provide remote supervision.

RELIANT can be used in electronic monitoring programs for subjects on pretrial, parole, probation or court order to observe alcohol-free behavior in community supervision, home confinement or 24/7 monitoring programs.

The subject is enrolled through an online portal and an app is then installed on a smartphone to provide secure communication with the central database. The EMU is then registered to the monitoring program to verify the breath alcohol test results.

“The EMU gives subjects the freedom to follow their work and life schedule while being alerted to provide breath tests with images on a random or fixed schedule. The interactive experience is intuitive and user-friendly by providing subjects with messages and appointments to maintain monitoring schedules,” says Felix J.E. Comeau, Chairman and CEO–Alcohol Countermeasure Systems (ACS).

Offering multiple identification procedures for additional security and geo-localization features to ensure the subject conducting the test is registered with the monitoring agency, the RELIANT EMU device is ideal for law enforcement.

Quality engineering ensures the RELIANT EMU uses a high performance electrochemical (fuel cell) sensor for breath alcohol measurement and provides rapid response and resilience to drift to ensure long term reliability and accuracy.

“This innovative product opens more doors for easy monitoring that does not compromise the subject’s day-to-day schedule. Due to the proprietary nature of the device, contact our Sales Team for more in-depth details on the functionality and usage of the RELIENT EMU,” Felix J.E. Comeau.
