Air quality monitoring, BACnet integration and cleaning chemical signature verification among solution's new capabilities

BAY SHORE, N.Y. (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 02, 2020 - The new award-winning features of the HALO IOT Smart Sensor include air quality monitoring, BACnet integration and cleaning chemical signature verification. These new features will be available through HALO’s firmware 2.2 update at no additional costs. The multi-sensor is now a vape and THC detector, gunshot detector, security device for privacy areas, chemical detector, air quality monitor and a smart building guide in a single device.

Poor indoor air quality and air filtering is of great concern with the return to work and school. HALO will now monitor and send alerts based on Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) measurements and will report the Air Quality Index (AQI), based on the EPA’s regulated standards, for the indoor environment. It will identify if the environment is in the danger zone for the spread of disease at the location of each sensor.

The integration with BACnet will allow communication of building automation and control systems for applications such as heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning control (HVAC), lighting control, access control, and fire detection systems and their associated equipment. HALO alerts and sensor readings can now communicate to these varied control systems to address and make improvements in response to the alerts received.    

One additional health and safety measure in HALO 2.2 is the recognition of cleaning chemical signatures. Now you can monitor, record, and have validation of when specific locations have been sanitized to ensure safety.

“The world has been focused on COVID-19 and getting back to normalcy with work and school and our customers have been asking us how HALO can help.” states Steve Rice, Business Development Director of IPVideo Corporation. “We are so pleased that HALO can help in this effort by identifying and alerting to disease contributing air conditions throughout a facility and signaling the building management system to make improvements to maintain a healthy building environment. The device also provides the validation of cleaning times to ensure safety measures are being adhered to.”

In addition to these enhancements, release 2.2 includes a new user interface, improved administrator navigation, improved key word recognition, improved security enhancements and additional key words for international markets including Australia.
