Call it home confinement, curfew management, house arrest or tethering, the RF Patrol™ does it all. RF Patrol is the most reliable, complete and cost-effective home monitoring system on the market today.

RF Patrol lets a corrections agency, probation or parole department keep an eye on many program participants at the same time. Every participant has their own home zone. Each ‘in and out’ is logged and an alert can be sent to the supervising officer when the participant enters and exits their home zone. All activity is recorded and reported.

RF Patrol includes a simple non-removable ankle radio transceiver and a home monitoring unit (HMU). The transceiver and HMU continuously communicate. All activity data is collected and automatically sent to Sentinel’s National Monitoring Center.

With its simple, durable, and highly cost-effective design, RF Patrol is the monitoring solution of choice for hundreds of agencies across the country. The PTX2 transceiver is water resistant and features a hypoallergenic tamper-resistant fiber-optic ankle strap and a built-in extended-life battery.

Available in landline and cellular models, the home monitoring unit can monitor up to 50 transceivers. It is an ideal solution for supervising participants co-located in municipal day-release programs, halfway-houses or group housing.
