Halo Smart Sensor: monitoring challenging situationsHalo Smart Sensor: monitoring challenging situations

If you own or manage a hotel or leisure complex or are responsible for safety and security on a school, college or university campus or student accommodation you may find yourself dealing with some challenging situations in areas around the property. These could be in rooms where CCTV cameras are not allowed, or are not appropriate, but where you want to create a safe and cleaner environment for staff, guests or students.

To ensure that people are protected and illegal or antisocial behaviour is detected there could be a need for more advanced monitoring. This monitoring could be for environmental threats such as potential gas or chemical leaks; ensuring that aggressive or criminal behaviour between or by people is detected and dealt with and picking up signs of vaping or cannabis smoking inside.

Ecl-ips can now offer a solution that will support you from Motorola Solutions and Avigilon. This is the HALO IOT Smart Sensor (HALO), built by IPVideo Corporation. Using the latest smart technology and with privacy in mind, it adds a layer of security in places that are not covered by CCTV surveillance enabling you to deal with a range of challenging situations.

For example, you will have an additional sensor that could help provide alerts when students are suffering from bullying or somebody becomes involved in a fight or that is able to detect a variety of particulates in the air so that it can help to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

Specifically, this all-in-one intelligent device can be used for:

  • Vape and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, found in cannabis) Detection,
  • Air Quality Monitoring
  • Aggression Detection
  • Calls for Help
  • Gunshot Detection,
  • Spread of Infectious Diseases Prevention
  • Chemical and Gas Detection
  • Vandalism and Trespassing Alerts.

The sensor has been designed so it is a non-intrusive security device that does not take away from a room’s ambiance making it ideal for hotel bedrooms, bathrooms and other similar spaces. As well as protecting individuals the sensor prevents damage and associated cleaning costs that are caused by smoke particles and poor air quality helping you save money over time.

Meanwhile the HALO integrates into a broader security infrastructure and provides data analytics to monitor violation alarm rates. By integrating the HALO with the powerful Avigilon Control Center 7 (ACC7) video management software users will be able to receive an alarm in the Focus of Attention interface once the HALO senses a threat.

At that point, Radio Alert will be able to notify security personnel or administrators through a text message, a voice-to-text alert, or both, when an alarm is triggered, enabling them to understand the situation and to respond quickly.

The Ecl-ips team is a well-established partner of Avigilon, which is now part of Motorola Solutions, and this is the latest in a line of innovative products we are excited to offer you. If you want to know more about the benefits of an Avigilon-led solution then please contact us.
