HALO Smart Sensor 2.2 from IPVideo Corporation Wins 2021 Campus Safety BEST Award for Emergency Communications on Air Quality Hazards

Bay Shore, NY | August 4, 2021:  IPVideo Corp. announced today that the new air quality monitoring and airborne disease mitigation featuresoftheir HALO IOT Smart Sensor 2.2. was selected as a 2021 Campus Safety Best Award winner for Emergency Communications and notifications.  

The HALO IOT Smart Sensor 2.2 was chosen by independent voting by a panel of judges along with the editors of Campus Safety as an outstanding campus security product in Emergency communications and notifications systems.

The HALO Smart Sensor is an all-in-one device that includes vape and THC detection, gunshot detection, security for privacy areas with spoken key word and sound alerts, chemical detection, air quality monitoring, and a smart building manager. Our latest award-winning features in the 2.2 firmware included indoor air quality monitoring, BACnet integration to trigger facility environmental changes, and cleaning chemical signature verification all to assist with the fight against COVID-19 and the spread of airborne infectious disease.    

“These new features are a game-changer for the healthy return to campus facilities,”said Rick Cadiz, Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “We are constantly looking to bring new features to better protect our Education clients and I am excited that the independent judges saw the value that HALO 2.2 is bringing to emergency communications on school campuses.” 

Poor indoor air quality and air filtering are of great concern with the return to work and school. HALO will now monitor and send alerts based on Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) measurements and will report the Air Quality Index (AQI) based on the EPA’s regulated standards for the indoor environment. HALO will identify if the environment is in the danger zone for the spread of disease at the location of each sensor.

The integration with BACnet will allow communication of building automation and control systems for applications such as heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning control (HVAC), lighting control, access control, and fire detection systems and their associated equipment. HALO alerts and sensor readings can now communicate to these varied control systems to address and make improvements in response to the alerts received.    

In addition to standard chemical detection, an additional health and safety measure in HALO 2.2 is the recognition of cleaning chemical signatures. Now you can monitor, record, and have validation of when specific locations have been sanitized to ensure safety.

Additional safety features have been added under 2.2 including certified gunshot detection with dual-factor authentication and 360-degree range, and additional emergency key words have been added for spoken alerts.

Campus Safety magazine is pleased to recognize the HALO Smart Sensor 2.2 as a winner of the 2021 Best Electronic Systems Technologies (BEST) aAwards. Now in its sixth year, the program honors superior security, law enforcement, emergency management and life safety products, and services for healthcare, higher education and K-12 campus protection professionals.
