SSI – 2020

The SSI-2020 unit is the newest, most reliable alcohol interlock device within the Australian market. This unit can be combined with the photo ID camera module, which is small camera that is mounted to the inside of the driver’s side windscreen.

How It Works

Unlike a hand held breathalyzer this device is installed into a vehicle to measure the breath alcohol concentration (BAC) of the intended driver. It will prevent the vehicle being started or operated if the BAC is over the preset limit. The SSI-2020 has built in anti-circumvention features which prevent the driver from trying to override the unit. The SSI-2020 includes a rolling retest requirement on a random time basis to ensure that the driver has not been drinking since the vehicle was first started.

The photo ID unit captures a picture of the breath test subject at the time any breath test is undertaken. The unit stores the pictures electronically and it also records the date and time in combination with the interlock unit’s logger. The camera operates in any light conditions, i.e. both day time and night time.

By using the photo ID module unit, Smart Start interlocks can positively identify the user of the device and positively identify anyone who has recorded a violation.

Features of the SSI-2020 unit with the photo ID module

  • Numeric keypad allows easy recall of appointment time and date
  • Allows entry of lockout code to temporarily extend service appointment after lockout, preventing the extra cost of a towing charge
  • Fully programmable options, including restricted drive times, if required

  • Integration with Smart Start’s patented Photo ID camera module records the identification of the user
