IPVideo’s HALO Wins 2018 ASTORS Award for Best Alert Notification System

BAY SHORE, NY | Nov. 19, 2018: IPVideo Corporation, a leading manufacturer of IP-based video surveillance, audio/video recording, passive visual weapons detection systems and IOT sensor technology, was selected as the winner of American Security Today’s 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award for Best Alert Notification System for their new HALO IOT Smart Sensor. This is the second award for HALO in recent months for its ground-breaking technology.

HALO IOT Smart Sensor was first introduced to help schools combat the vaping, bullying and active shooter threats that schools currently face. Through the addition of environmental sensors such as air quality, advanced smoke detection, chemical, light, natural gas, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and audio analytics such as glass break, gun shot and aggression detection, HALO has expanded its use case to almost every vertical market including Residential use. Healthcare, Assisted Living, Government, Schools, Commercial and Residential markets can now secure common areas as well as those not traditionally covered by security devices such as bathrooms, locker rooms and homes without infringing on privacy.

“With HALO we were able to tie numerous sensors together into a single intelligent platform to learn, analyze and create event alerts.” IPVideo Corporation President, David Antar who accepted the honor, stated about HALO. “That’s what the future of security is all about. Artificial Intelligence coupled with Machine Learning is the game changer that makes security professionals efficient and effective. Rather than watch an unrealistic number of cameras, smart sensors create triggers that focus security personnel on events which allow them to respond and react in the proper way. We are humbled that the security expert panelists recognized the game changing security alert features of our HALO IOT Smart Sensor and chose us for this honor.”
