Halo Smart Sensor by IPVideo Corp

Halo Smart Sensor is disrupting the world of physical security right now. You have to be doing something right to win ISC’s Product of the Year. What is Halo Smart Sensor? Halo is a compact security device for privacy areas and an environmental monitoring tool. And, it’s rapidly gaining global attention for its vaping detection capabilities. Halo is the first security device to accurately detect THC oil! Now school districts across the country are using Halo to fight the youth vaping epidemic. In addition, Halo is also perfect for hospitality, manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, and commercial use.

Product Design

IPVideo Corp takes every aspect of design into account when assembling the Halo Smart Sensor. Being compact, the outside of Halo looks like your common smoke or fire detector. But on the inside, it’s light years ahead of that technology. The device packs in 12 unique sensors that work together to detect a wide range of measurements. In addition, the structural design uses air flow to detect harmful chemicals faster than normal air quality control systems. Because Halo establishes baselines for a room’s environment, it can quickly identify abnormalities and reduce costly false alarms. Unlike other singular sensors, Halo will not be set off by body and disinfectant sprays.

Halo Smart Sensor

Most importantly, each Halo device can act as a node in your system to pinpoint the source of the problem when it occurs. When reporting is necessary, you can set up real time alerts to develop situational awareness. Security managers can get text messages or email notifications sent to them, or they can use IO Triggers to create alerts.

The Technology

There are a few types of sensors inside Halo. Some are audio and air quality sensors. Others are chemical and environmental sensors. The variety helps Halo maximize your security.
