IPVideo Corporation Announces Strategic Alliance to Develop HALO IOT Smart Sensor Integration with Open Options Access Control

BAY SHORE, N.Y. | APRIL 18, 2019:  IPVideo Corporation, a leading manufacturer of IP audio/video recording, IoT sensor technology and passive visual weapons detection systems, is proud to announce its plans to integrate its award-winning HALO IOT Smart Sensor and Open Options DNA Fusion access control platform of Addison, Texas. The technology alliance was announced last week at the start of ISC West 2019 where both companies were listed as must see booths by SDM magazine.

Initially intended for schools to combat the vaping and school shooting epidemics, HALO IOT Smart Sensor has now expanded across industries. HALO detects environmental changes that occur in privacy concern areas such as bathrooms, locker rooms, hotel rooms and hospital rooms. As a device on the network, it will send immediate alerts to security personnel to respond.

With HALO, designated personnel will be alerted when environmental changes occur in typically unsupervised areas. HALO can detect flammables, hazardous chemicals, air quality changes such as vaping and smoking and changes in temperature and humidity. HALO can also detect noise level fluctuations and can send alerts when unusual activity occurs. HALO will also analyze room occupancy through light detection.

The HALO IOT Smart Sensor integration with Open Options DNA Fusion software aims to unite the smart sensor technology and door access into one powerful situational awareness platform. Through the Open Options Flex API and integration with DNA Fusion, it will also enable the ability to monitor the HALO IOT Smart Sensor, discern the cause of an alarm, provide video verification and establish rules for response.

“With HALO we are able to tie numerous sensors together into a single intelligent platform to learn, analyze and create event alerts and tie directly to Door Events.” IPVideo Corporation President, David Antar, stated about HALO. “The future of security is here, smart sensors creating event triggers that allow security personnel to respond and react in the proper way. The fact that HALO solves a security hole in privacy areas and you can tie in to door entry and camera integration is a tremendous bonus for all.”

“We’re excited to have IPVideo Corporation and their HALO IOT Smart Sensor as part of our technology partner portfolio”, says Benjamin Vestal Vice President of Sales and Business Development, Open Options. “This partnership will deliver great value to our joint customers by providing them a security measure for privacy areas. HALO uses smart sensors to augment the capabilities of door access using smart sensors and IOT technology. This illustrates the value of the open platform community to join forces for improving safety and security.”
