IPVideo Corporation’s HALO IoT Smart Sensor Awarded First U.S. Patent for Gunshot Detection Technology

Industry-Leading Security and Privacy Area Detection Device Climbs to Six Patents

BAY SHORE, N.Y. April 20, 2022: IPVideo Corporation announced today that its HALO IoT Smart Sensor, a multi-function security device that protects individual privacy, has been awarded its first U.S. patent for gunshot detection technology, bringing the total number of patents for the device to six.

HALO’s patent was awarded on the accurate detection of gunshot events through spectrum analysis of impulse signals and/or evaluating impulse signal exponential decay amplitude and time values to facilitate detection of gunshot events and/or components of gunshot events.

The HALO Smart Sensor is at the forefront of solving ever-evolving safety concerns, boasting comprehensive security and environmental monitoring features that provide users with heightened levels of security. Since the device does not use cameras or record audio, individual privacy is never compromised, making the device suitable for use anywhere including facility privacy areas such as bathrooms, breakrooms, and more. In addition to gunshot detection, HALO’s security features include noise alerts, emergency keyword alerting, a panic button, 2-way audio communications, an indoor health index, emergency escape and alert lighting, motion detection, an optional add-on for people-counting, and customized sensors such as ozone and sulfur dioxide.

“As tragic events continue to occur, many are searching for gunshot detection technology which can be an expensive investment but we are pleased to bring this feature to market in HALO as a cost-effective solution,” said David Antar, president of


IPVideo Corporation. “We are very excited to have been granted our 6th patent for HALO and expect many more to come as we continue to expand on its award-winning multi-function capabilities.”
