Prevent Vaping While Capturing Comprehensive Health & Safety Awareness for your Building

HALO is the essential component in the solution to providing a low-risk, healthier environment by monitoring Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Particulate concentrations, Humidity, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) in the air. This multi-sensor provides vape detection, smoke detection, THC detection, and sound detection of abnormalities like gunshots and shouting in areas where a camera cannot be placed. HALO delivers safe, healthy, and comfortable environments that keep all occupants safe while saving money by efficiently also running the HVAC system.

“The HALO detection system is serving its purpose as a deterrent to our students to discourage vaping. Prior to their installation we had over 20 EMS calls for students that we believed were suffering from effects of vaping. Since the devices have been in place, we haven't had to make any.”
Associate Principal and 504 Coordinator, North Scott High School, Eldridge, IA

Frequently Asked Questions

Our all-in-one Security, Health and Vape Detector device is used across multiple industries around the globe.

HALO has a host of sensors to perform multiple detections. 12 sensors to be exact. The hundreds of combinations it detects expands its capabilities to be able to differentiate between substances as well.  For instance, HALO can distinguish between a person vaping nicotine and a person vaping with a substance laced with THC. Learn more about our sensors here

 HALO can typically cover 144 square feet (13.4 square meters) with normal ceiling heights (8ft/2.4m) for vape sensors however other sensors work effectively up to 1963 square feet (182.4 square meters). Its coverage area will also vary by the ventilation in the room, the ceiling height will also be a contributing factor. A pendant mount option is available to keep HALO at its recommended height of 8 feet (2.4 meters).

HALO was purposely designed to maximize efficiency of airflow which shortens the response time to an event. HALO is an effective vape detector tool but will have obvious limitations if a person uses some physical methods to obscure their vaping. Filtering through clothing, opening of windows, etc. can lower the levels of chemicals reaching its sensors. Third party testing has been done and proven effective, even when vape is blown in to a jacket.

Yes! HALO IOT Smart Sensor is a security device which is designed to respect privacy. Bathrooms and locker rooms are two such places HALO is installed. They are also perfect for dorm rooms, hospital rooms and hotel rooms to provide security and vape detection while maintaining privacy.

Yes, HALO is suitable for use in Colleges and Universities, hospitality centers, commercial buildings, malls, etc. Any location where vaping needs to be controlled and there is a security system or security service to monitor its alerts/events. HALO is perfect for dorm rooms if colleges are concerned about students smoking various substances in rooms, breaking noise ordinances or for dorm and campus safety.

 HALO is currently in use in schools throughout the US and they have uncovered many instances of both vaping and THC use. We highlight some of these districts on our site. Please see our Case Studies section.

Yes this can be used in a residence and many rental units are successfully using HALO today, however there are technical and purchase requirements you need to be aware of that may not be a fit for every home/apartment.   HALO requires POE cabling/ethernet connection to operate, confirm you are set up to run before purchasing.   IPVideo Corporation does not sell HALO direct to customers,  units are purchased from certified distributors and resellers many of which only sell to commercial establishments.   

HALO is a SMART sensor with the ability to expand its capabilities in the future. HALO is suitable for use in any industrial complex where environments need to be monitored and controlled. HALO detects chemicals such as CO2, CO and NH3 and ties to the security system or security service to monitor its alerts/events.

 No, there is no minimum purchase quantity.

 HALO comes with a 2-year, 5-year or 10-year warranty

The HALO is an intelligent sensor on the edge and works standalone. Therefore, the HALO Cloud is optional.

An unlimited number of HALOs can be connected to the HALO Cloud.

HALO is a SMART Sensor! As a security device, HALO is made of vandal-proof plastic and has an IK08 rating. HALO Smart Sensor also encompasses a tamper sensor in order to detect someone trying to damage it. If the tamper sensor is set, an alert can be sent out in the same manner as a vape alert, or, as an option, HALO has a speaker and light which can be enabled to blink or shriek to alert of the tampering.

Gunshot detection is included with all HALOs. IPVideo has a patent pending algorithm built into each HALO improving identification of gunshot events with Dual Authentication. HALO incorporates frequency and sound pattern with percussion to detect gunshot in 360 degrees at a 25’ (7.62m) radius for almost 2,000 square feet (185.8 square meters) of coverage and does not require line of site.
