How the HALO Smart Sensor Makes Schools Safer

Smoking in schools has been an issue for decades. Now schools have even more to worry about with the increasing popularity of vaping. These problems coupled with bullying and other disruptive activities are too much for teachers and staff to handle by themselves. There needs to be a better process for stopping smoking, vaping, and other distractions to make schools safer for everyone. Using a security system like a sensor, school faculty can focus on other tasks instead of monitoring students. Administrators receive a full view of what previously was undetectable by connecting the sensor with the school’s security camera system. Here’s how IPVideo Corporation’s HALO Smart Sensor makes schools safer.

Cut Down on Smoking and Vaping in Schools

Positioning the HALO Smart Sensor in the right places works both as a deterrent and a detection method. Real-time alerts send to school officials to identify when and where students are smoking or vaping. The HALO Smart Sensor also allows staff to be proactive instead of reactive. Not only is it more effective than the traditional way of catching students, but it’s quicker and easier. After implementing the device, many schools have found that vaping in places like bathrooms has decreased. The HALO Smart Sensor now also detects marijuana, allowing for even more precise policy enforcement.

Curb Bullying and Other Disturbances

It’s difficult to intervene when bullying is happening outside the classroom. In places like bathrooms, stairwells, and hallways, the only way to address the issue is after it has occurred. With the HALO Smart Sensor, you can now detect loud sounds like yelling and cries for help with spoken keyword detection. This enhanced security makes it easier to eliminate disturbances and helps students learn safely. The sensor’s alerts allow school faculty to receive messages right to their phone so they can investigate what has set off the alarm. The security cameras and HALO Smart Sensors can identify students engaging in vandalism, bullying, or other disruptive activities.

Detect Unseen Hazards

In addition to detecting smoke from cigarettes and vapes, the HALO sensor can sense disaster before it happens. The sensor can detect chemical spills in any room of the school.  Place your HALO units around science labs or custodial closets to find any leaks or spills. You’re also able to monitor temperature, humidity, and moisture levels to prevent mold and illness in classrooms or cafeterias. IPVideo Corporation’s HALO Smart Sensor is the perfect addition for schools looking to improve overall student safety, stop vaping, and detect harmful situations.
