The SSI-20/30™ is the latest in ignition interlock technology from Smart Start, Inc. It was developed to make installation, use and monitoring easier with a less-expensive and more discrete device.

Smart Start’s SSI G4 Camera is approximately 5.5cm x 4cm x 4cm and is mounted on the inside of the driver’s side window about halfway up from the dash. It records a picture of the user at the time of each breath test so Smart Start can see who takes each test and prevents the user from tampering with the camera. After each breath test, the photo is stored along with the date, time and location of each test to sync with the SSI-20/30™ information log. The SSI-20/30™ interlock will effectively abort the test and prevent the user from starting their car if any tampering is detected from the device or the camera.

The SSI-20/30™ goes a step further to make it easier for the user, the unit is programable for blow/hum or no hum techniques, meaning users have the option of blowing into the device without needing to hum. In addition, it was designed to be more economical and discreet than the SSI-20/20™.

The SSI-20/20™ brings a new level of information and ease of installation to the interlock market. Combined with our patented positive digital photo identification of the user, the SSI-20/20™ has been improved for easier use and installation.

The SSI-20/20™ works alongside Smart Start’s SSI G4 Camera that captures a picture of the breath test subject at the time of each test.

Each photo is stored in the unit electronically along with the date and time of each test, which syncs with the SSI-20/20™ log. The camera unit is designed to work in any lighting situation, regardless of how dark or bright it is.

The SSI G4 Camera is one of the many tamper detection features available on the SSI-20/20™. The recorded photos allow Smart Start to positively identify the user of the device to see who is taking each test and prevents users from being able to cover up or disconnect the camera. When tampering is detected.

SSI G4 Camera

Features of the SSI G4 Camera

  • Easy Mounting
  • Fast Download
  • Positive Identification

The SSI G4 Camera is mounted to the inside of the driver’s side windshield with a mount on the camera allowing for adjustability on the windshield of the vehicle during installation. The SSI G4 Camera captures a picture based upon configurable commands sent to the camera from the IID. For example, the camera receives a unique command to capture a picture at vehicle start-up, skipped or rolling retests. The unit then stores the picture electronically with a date and time stamp associated to the picture event.

The camera communicates through a 485 connection which plugs directly in to the SSI relay unit, also known as the logger and utilises a built-in USB connection for picture downloads. Picture downloads are performed during regularly scheduled service appointments via a secure application server.

By using the camera unit, Smart Start is able to positively identify the user of the device and minimize tampering, since a picture is being recorded. The device has several tamper detection features to prevent the user from covering the camera with tape or disconnecting it. When tampering is detected, the unit will send a message to the interlock aborting the test, thus preventing the user from starting the vehicle.
