The award-winning HALO Smart Sensor provides smoke detection, health, and safety monitoring for public and affordable housing. HALO Smart Sensor and the HALO Cloud interface help building managers address HUD non-compliance issues by detecting smoking and vaping in resident living units and indoor common areas as soon as they occur. HALO also alerts to a wide range of environmental pollutants and other risk factors – helping to improve residents’ overall quality of life. HALO Smart Sensor never uses cameras or collects any personally identifiable information (PII).
Smoking is prohibited in all public housing at a federal level. Vaping is also banned in many municipalities and properties. HALO can alert property owners and managers when these are detected.
According to the EPA, Air Quality can have a significant impact on heart and lung health, particularly in the elderly. HALO enables staff and residents to monitor Air Quality at a unit level.
HALO monitors room temperature to ensure it is within regulatory limits and can be programmed to send an alert when units or common areas are too warm or cold.
HALO can alert property managers when relative humidity is below 40% or above 60%. This improves resident health by preventing allergies from mold and mildew and minimizing the risk of disease transmission.
HALO can be configured to trigger an alert when lights are turned on at night in spaces that are meant to be unoccupied.
HALO can be configured to trigger alerts when indoor sound levels exceed HUD’s recommend limit of 45dB.
HALO’s audio algorithms can be programmed to alert property managers to excessive music, large gatherings, fights, vandalism and calls for help.
HALO’s panic button integration alerts management and security staff to incidents via the HALO Cloud dashboard, mobile app and email.
HALO can be configured to send notifications when lights or noise is detected in unauthorized areas and after hours.
HALO can help property managers minimize HVAC system use when units are unoccupied.
