IPVideo Corporation was recognized with the Best New Product award for its HALO IOT Smart Sensor solution yesterday in the 2019 SIA New Product Showcase (NPS).

Initially intended to combat school vaping, bullying and active shooter threats, HALO IOT Smart Sensor has expanded across verticals.  With HALO, designated personnel can be alerted when environmental changes occur in typically unsupervised areas. HALO can detect flammables, hazardous chemicals, air quality changes, such as vaping and changes in temperature and humidity. HALO can also detect noise level fluctuations and can send alerts when unusual activity occurs. HALO will also analyze room occupancy through light detection. With the addition of environmental sensors and audio analytics including air quality, CO/CO2, glass break, gunshot and aggression detection, facilities can secure privacy concern areas and signal alerts to security.

Attendees of ISC West 2019 can witness HALO in action at Booth #20001.  

“SIA’s New Product Showcase calls security companies to develop extraordinary, innovative products and solutions, and this year’s winners represent the best new offerings in the market,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “SIA congratulates all the companies who received awards in 2019, particularly IPVideo’s HALO IOT Smart Sensor for standing out among the entries in this highly competitive program to earn the Best New Product distinction.”

The prestigious Judges’ Choice Award was presented to Alcatraz AI for its Alcatraz AI

solution. The solution uses 3D sensing to do completely frictionless FaceID-like secure facial authentication for physical access control, replacing badging in the workplace, with AI-based anti-tailgating alerts and enrollment.

In addition, Axis Communications received the NPS Merit Award, presented each year to an individual or company who, through their participation and support of the NPS, demonstrates a commitment to the vision and mission of the NPS, contributes to the success of the program and, in so doing, promotes the advancement of SIA and the security industry overall.
