Telmate Kiosks

Automated Lobby Kiosks

Our lobby kiosk offers friends & family a convenient, accessible and localized option to add funds to any inmate account. When our kiosks are integrated with commissary systems, friends & family may also use them to deposit money into an inmate trust fund. Our automated kiosks decrease the time facility staff ordinarily spend accepting and processing payments from visitors, as well as expand payment options to include cash, credit and debit cards. Our fully-automated lobby kiosks are capable of relieving staff of a number of different administrative burdens including:

  • Visitation Scheduling
  • Inmate Trust Deposits
  • Restitution, Bond, & Bail Payments
  • Work Release
  • Rules/Information Distribution
  • Public Permit/License Payments
  • All of our lobby kiosks are all interconnected, so a family member near any Telmate kiosk nationwide is able to deposit cash for an inmate housed in any other facility with a Telmate solution.

Automated Booking Kiosks

Our fully customizable booking kiosks are an optional tool that allow facilities to save time and effort with the intake of new inmates. Some of the labor-saving tasks that are typically undertaken by our intake booking kiosk include:

  • Cash Intake. This capability helps eliminate staffing and accounting issues typically associated with counting cash and depositing/reconciling.
  • Rules and Regulations Display. Specific information about the institution can be displayed on the screen.
  • 20 Question Test. Following informational sessions about facility rules, a test can be displayed with a minimum pass/fail requirement.
  • Phone System Rules. Rules of the phone system can be displayed to educate the inmate of the 3-way call policy, call recording and monitoring policies, and other phone rules.
  • PIN and PAN Submission. PIN creation and personally allowed number (PAN) setup can be incorporated into the Intake Kiosk, as well as voice biometric authentication setup.
  • JMS/OMS Integration. The system can be integrated into the JMS/OMS and all associated information is loaded into the system.
  • Photo Taking Capability. A camera placed within the Kiosk is capable of taking a picture of the inmate while taking a test or being informed of the rules, providing verification.
  • Video Recording. The kiosk is capable of video recording the inmate while they take institutional tests. An electronic documentation process can be used to verify their acknowledgment of rules.
