Alcohol Home Monitoring and other conditions can be set by a judge as part of a bail requirement or in place of a bail bond. The home monitor is a devise that is attached to a land-line telephone and is used to monitor alcohol in the defendants system. The defendant will have to breath into the devise several times a day as required by the court. Typically, the defendant will have this requirement for several months, must breath into the device seven days a week, and there is a daily cost. If allowed by the court, a bail bond can be placed and the condition of the Alcohol Home Monitor is waved.
