HALO IoT Sensors Detect Danger While Maintaining Privacy

Smart Sensors Monitor Environmental Changes Across A Wide Range of Industries

Originally developed to address urgent concerns such as school shootings and vaping, the HALO IoT Smart Sensor was initially designed to detect environmental changes in areas where privacy is a major concern – such as restrooms or locker rooms. Since then, the technology has been adopted by organizations across a wide range of industries.

The HALO Smart Sensor provides a comprehensive solution by monitoring typically unsupervised areas for various factors such as flammables, hazardous chemicals, alterations in air quality resulting from vaping or smoking, as well as fluctuations in temperature and humidity. It then sends alerts to designated personnel so that they can investigate the situation.

Additionally, the HALO sensor is equipped to identify changes in noise levels, promptly notifying authorities in case of unusual activity. Its functionality extends further to analyzing room occupancy through light detection, which maintains privacy where it’s needed, while also incorporating a built-in tamper detection alert.

By leveraging cutting-edge smart technology, HALO introduces an additional layer of security in areas that conventional surveillance cameras cannot cover. With HALO, security staff can now effectively monitor locations where camera installations are prohibited with alerts that can be conveniently accessed through a web interface or via traditional burglar, video management systems, access control, or building management tools.

Device Capabilities in Detail

Air Quality Monitoring: Ensuring a Safe and Healthy Environment

The HALO Smart Sensor excels in monitoring air quality, making it a valuable asset in industries where maintaining a safe and healthy environment is paramount, such as healthcare, hospitality, and recreation. With its advanced capabilities, HALO detects vaping and smoking, allowing organizations to enforce no-smoking policies and protect individuals from harmful secondhand smoke. Additionally, it can detect dangerous chemicals, providing an early warning system for hazardous material leaks or spills.

Room Occupancy: Optimizing Space Utilization

Efficient space utilization is essential across various industries, and HALO Smart Sensors offer room occupancy monitoring through light detection. By analyzing light patterns, HALO accurately determines occupancy, enabling organizations to optimize resource allocation and enhance operational efficiency. Industries such as retail, hospitality, and facility management can leverage HALO to monitor real-time occupancy levels, ensuring better space utilization and improved customer service.

Sound Frequency Monitoring: Enhancing Security and Safety

HALO Smart Sensors incorporate sound frequency monitoring capabilities, making them an invaluable tool in industries where detecting aggressive behavior or gunshots is critical for maintaining security and safety. By analyzing sound patterns – and even checking against a list of pre-designated keywords – HALO can promptly identify potential threats, enabling security personnel to respond swiftly. 

Alerting: Real-time Notifications for Prompt Action

HALO Smart Sensors offer multiple alerting options to ensure timely response and action. Whether through email or SMS text alerts, organizations can receive instant notifications when environmental changes or security threats are detected. HALO integrates with video management and access control systems, allowing security personnel to access alerts through familiar interfaces and take appropriate measures. These features are vital for security services, manufacturing, and transportation.

Chemical Detection: Safeguarding Against Hazardous Substances

HALO’s chemical detection capabilities offer crucial safety measures in industries dealing with hazardous substances. It can monitor levels of Whippets (Nitrous Oxide), Propanol, Hydrogen, Ammonia, total volatile organic compounds (glue solvents), Carbon Dioxide, and Carbon Monoxide. Industries such as manufacturing, laboratories, and healthcare can rely on HALO to identify potential chemical hazards and mitigate risks effectively.

Other Features: Versatile and Easy-to-Deploy Solution

HALO Smart Sensors come with additional features that enhance their versatility and ease of deployment. With their flush mounting capability to ceilings, HALO sensors seamlessly blend into various environments, while the unit’s compact size and Power Over Ethernet (PoE) connectivity simplify installation and ensure hassle-free integration into existing networks. These features make HALO suitable for hospitality, retail, and healthcare industries, where aesthetics are appreciated and ease of installation are essential.
