HomeWAV (Home Web Access Visitation) is a, cost effective, and innovative way to allow those incarcerated in Detention Facilities across the country to visit with their families and friends in a home environment without the hassle of traveling or setting up an appointment to visit the Inmate at the facility. Visitors who have fully registered and have been approved can log in using their chosen Username and Password. Once the Visitor is logged in they will see a list of Inmates they have added to their account. If the Visitor has purchased minutes for a specified Inmate this will allow them access to a video visit. Once the Inmate is logged on, the Visitor will see their name displayed with green text. The visit will begin if the call is accepted it allows the Visitor and the Inmate to have face to face conversation on their own time. For best results a headset is suggested.

It’s not bad


I appreciate having the app to use to visit my son instead of going down to the local jail where visitation is only two days a week and you have to make an appointment and it takes 24 hours to get your appointment this way I can talk to him whenever I want yeah it freezes up sometimes yeah it does take my money but it doesn’t take me long to disconnect the call when it starts to freeze up then he can try to call me again and usually it will work just fine we can usually get a short video call in even with the freezing up but as long as I get to see my son‘s face and hear his voice even if it is freezing up I’m good with that for now yeah they have a few quirks to work out but I’m sure they will but I’m thankful for this app so I don’t have to deal with the stupid local jail

Price gouging predators


They do not maintain their equipment, it freezes and locks up and takes your money before it even connects, my husband don’t even have a chair to sit on when we talk and then you can hardly hear each other speak, they take forever to respond to emails and they rarely give refunds of even just a few minutes, I am so sick of this company robbing my family of our hard earned money when they charge nearly $40 for 1 hour when Skype and FaceTime are a million times better and completely free. I will be reporting them to the better business bureau too, they need to be made to act right instead of ripping people off, I suggest you all do the same.

Horrible service


The try to blame my internet connection on the video freezing but my WiFi connection is superb . Soon as I accept the call it freezes & take a dollar of my money . I’ve called & nothing was done besides blaming my connection . I’ve turned my WiFi system off and on , uninstalled and downloaded the app over just to ensure it wasn’t any issues on my side . Every other app I use works fine so I’m not sure why it’s constantly freezing, it must be a problem on their side . I’m disappointed in the robbery ! It has used all my money from just accepting the call & I have not even been able to speak to the inmate from it freezing up .
