Not Legal Advice: There is no way you can drink alcohol without being detected by the SCRAM CAM since the SCRAM CAM bracelet can detect even very low-level drinking events.
And if anything is placed between the skin and the bracelet or there’s any alteration to the baseline IR sensor, SCRAM CAM will generate an Obstruction Alert.
The SCRAM tether is owned and invented by Alcohol Monitoring Systems, Inc. (AMS) located in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. In 1993, Jeff Hawthorne co-invented the device and founded AMS in 1997. SCRAM was introduced in 2003 to the criminal justice market by AMS and is presently used in 48 states and monitors over 184,000 clients.
Generally, in the cases where SCRAM is ordered, the defendant is also ordered not to consume any alcohol whatsoever. A SCRAM bracelet is meant to ensure compliance with that special condition of bond.
