IPVideo Corporation Debuts Next-Gen HALO IoT Smart Sensor
HALO 3C’s new features include a panic button, two-way audio communications, indoor health index, motion detection, people counting and more.
IPVideo Corporation, an audio/video recording, passive weapons detection systems and IoT sensor technology manufacturer, announced the release of the latest version of its HALO IoT Smart Sensor, a vaping and privacy area detection device.
HALO 3C does not use a camera or record audio, making it ideal for private areas such as restrooms. The device instead offers safety and security awareness by means of a carefully selected array of sensors into an analytical network of metadata, says the company. HALOs interact with each other and deliver information in real-time.
In addition to existing security features, which include gunshot detection, noise alerts and emergency keyword alerting, the HALO 3C now includes:
The HALO 3C new release includes:
- Enhanced HALO Cloud and New Mobile Device App: Allows users to receive push notifications of any HALO alert, trigger a panic button, initiate or receive two-way audio communications, and provide the indoor air quality information of the room being occupied.
- Health Index: HALO 3C provides both a real-time air quality and health index and sends alerts when either index falls into danger zones. It also provides automated reports that allow building owners and administrators to demonstrate they are providing a healthy indoor environment and/or validate that facility improvements are needed.
- Panic Button: Users can trigger alerts through an external third-party panic button or through the HALO cloud app. The location of the trigger is associated with the HALO device in closest proximity.
- Two-Way Audio Communications: Users can initiate two-way audio communications with security personnel using the HALO cloud app or directly through the device when the emergency keyword alert is spoken. Location is determined based on HALO proximity.
- Emergency Escape and Alert Lighting: HALO 3C comes with a halo of LED colored lighting options that can be programmed to show escape routes for safety, such as a red, yellow, and green pattern, or unique colors for different alerts, such as purple for air quality alerts, or blue for health alerts.
- Motion Detection: Identify and alert on movement for occupancy and trespassing.
- Occupancy and People Counting: Identify how many people are within the HALO location and configure to alert on abnormalities.
- Custom HALO Configurations: HALO 3C comes with the option for customized calibrated industrial sensors. With options for ozone, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide, etc., HALO 3C can address specific security or compliance needs.
- Ease of Installation: HALO 3C is a surface-mounted device allowing for a quick and easy installation in any location. A new port allows for two devices to connect on the same cable run to cut down on cabling installation costs.
“The need for security while maintaining individual privacy is in high demand,” said Frank Jacovino, Vice President of Product Development at IPVideo Corporation. “With HALO 3C and the added safety features and custom sensor options, we can address the security and privacy dilemma in significant ways, further providing our clients with true peace of mind.”
