Bay Shore, NY | September 10, 2019: IPVideo Corporation, a leading manufacturer of audio/video recording, award winning passive weapons detection systems and IoT sensor technology, has been selected as a 2019 New Product of the Year Award winner by Security Today for their HALO IOT Smart Sensor at Global Security Exchange (GSX). The HALO won in two categories: Internet of Things and Monitoring Solutions and can be seen at GSX booth 2176.
The HALO IOT Smart Sensor has taken off this year in response to the nationwide youth vaping epidemic. It is the only product to detect vaping with Nicotine or Marijuana (THC oil). HALOs have been installed in school bathrooms and locker rooms across the country in K-12 institutions and is moving into college dormitories. In addition to vape and smoke detection, HALO has several safety features including abnormal sound detection, chemical detection and air quality monitoring.
“We are very proud of this award and the recognition of the Security Today judging panel for recognizing the game changing nature of HALO” states David Antar, President of IPVideo Corporation who received the award. HALO is the missing piece for campus environments as it provides security for bathrooms, locker rooms, patient rooms and dorm rooms where you cannot put a camera. For areas that have camera visibility, the real time integrated alerts provide campus security with the other missing senses of smell and hearing in those environments.”
The Security Today New Product of the Year Award honors the outstanding product development achievements of security equipment manufacturers whose products are considered to be particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve security. Nearly 100 entries were received in the 11th successful year of the independently juried contest. Winners were honored in 40 product award categories.
“In an ever-changing society and security world, I’m always excited to see and study the newest products entered in our New Product of the Year contest, each year,” said Ralph C. Jensen, editor in chief of Security Today magazine. “I’m very pleased that many manufacturers take the time to share with us and our readers the products they have designed and brought to fruition. Our world needs the technology and benefits from those people who are ever thinking about new ways to secure the world. There has never been a time in the history of mankind when security efforts are more needed than they are today.”
“This has been a tremendous year for the HALO product and all of its award recognition as an industry transforming product.” IPVideo Corporation Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Rick Cadiz stated about HALO. “However, the real win for us is the customer feedback we are hearing; including putting an end to youth vaping inside schools and aiding security teams in preventing dangerous events from escalating.”
HALO IOT Smart Sensor has the unique ability to provide instant IoT sensing to event-based triggers and provide security in campus privacy concern areas where traditional security cameras and solutions are not practical. HALO uses multiple sensors together in a single intelligent platform to learn, analyze and create event alerts. We follow the adage that in the world of safety “time equals life”. HALO uses real-time event driven analytics to respond while an event is happening, greatly reducing damage to property and loss of life.
HALO has advanced audio analytics to detect sound abnormalities like glass breaking, yelling and gunshots. The air quality sensors measure things like carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, chemicals such as ammonia and oxidizers as well as gas leaks. HALO’s light detection sensors are utilized for room occupancy. These are coupled with built in temperature and humidity sensors. The additional integration with POE lighting provides unique safety measures like providing emergency directional lighting for the hearing impaired. HALO goes to a whole new level as a campus security solution by providing advanced warning related to health issues including air quality, vape or smoke detection.
HALO IOT Smart Sensor is manufactured in the U.S.A. and is Patent Pending.
