Portable Alcohol Monitoring Device by LifeSafer®

Alcohol is one of the most common substances of abuse among drug court participants, yet many testing technologies do not do a good job of detecting alcohol consumption.

Portable Alcohol Monitoring by LifeSafer is the ONLY portable alcohol monitoring unit that meets NHTSA’s rigorous standards for accuracy and reliability. Sometimes called a “home breathalyzer,” portable units prompt users for tests at random times throughout the day.

How to Successfully Take a Test

How to Use the LifeSafer Portable Alcohol Monitor

Our portable alcohol monitoring device is designed to be as quick and easy to use as possible. To help you successfully complete your program, the device will automatically alert you whenever it’s time for you to take your test. It will emit a beep and then display the LifeSafer logo on the screen. 

When you see the word “blow,” you’ll be able to begin your test. Attach the smaller end of the mouthpiece to the device, look directly into the camera, take a deep breath and then blow continuously for about five seconds. When you hear a beep, you can stop blowing. 

Once you’ve provided your breath sample, the screen will say “wait.” Depending on your Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC), you’ll either receive an alert that says “pass” or “fail.” If you pass, your portable breathalyzer will let you know. If you fail, meaning the device detected trace amounts of alcohol, the device will reset, allowing you to retake the test. The monitoring authority will determine the number of retests you’ll be able to take.

Throughout the duration of your program, you’ll have to attend several scheduled appointments. The first is a service appointment during which your device’s memory is downloaded and the data gets reported to the monitoring authority. You’ll repeat these appointments at regular intervals during your program.
