When you have a loved one in a correctional facility, it can be a challenge not having them around for everyday events or simply to talk to, however Securus Technology makes it simpler to stay in touch with these family members, as it provides a way to talk with loved ones from anywhere. In the video it shows several individuals that have used the technology as they talk with loved ones showing the events of their lives, while helping their family members to feel like they are there with them. They help to connect with smiles, for proud fathers to connect, celebrate birthday’s, performances, to tell bedtime stories, share moments with daughters and sons and more events that without the technology provided by securus would not be possible, thus allowing the loved one to never miss out on the major events, even though they can’t be there in person, they can feel like they are.
There are a couple types of options when it comes to the Securus video services, these include being able to pre-schedule a visit onsite, or to schedule a visit with the at-home visitation option. The first option is scheduling an at home visit, which allows individual to visit their loved one who is incarcerated from the comfort of home, this even helping to make the family member feel like they are at home with them. While the onsite visit is like a traditional through-the glass visit, with securus individuals can pre-schedule a visit and this helps to cut down on the time that is spent waiting, and making all aspects of the visit more convenient in all aspects.
