Connected Technologies, maker of the Connect ONE cloud-hosted management platform, unveiled an Application Programming Interface (API) integration with the Halo IoT Smart Sensor from IPVideo Corp. Security dealers and systems integrators can offer their customers a complete package of services – intrusion, access control, video surveillance and Halo detection – all controlled and managed with the Connect ONE user interface.
With Halo, security systems installers can expand their range of services to monitor and detect. Users control, manage and remotely support their Halo sensors centrally on one screen with the Connect ONE user interface. With Connect ONE, there’s no need for a separate alarm panel to control installed Halo sensors, only internet connectivity. Detection capabilities include abnormal noise levels, spoken keyword alerting, gunshot detection, vaping, THC, smoke, ammonia, carbon monoxide, light occupancy and sensitivity, temperature, humidity, pressure and more.
“We’re excited about putting this together in one bundled package,” said Dan Simon, Connected Technologies co-founder and managing partner. Customers can receive instant notifications onscreen through the Connect ONE interface or via email, text message or other push notification. In addition, the platform can take snapshots from video cameras in the areas where alerts occurred, trigger other events, such as locking and unlocking doors and initiate notifications with the Connect ONE cloud service.
Halo, which has garnered widespread industry attention and accolades for its detection technology, originally targeted youth vaping in schools and campuses with air quality detection, expanding into audio analytics, chemical and environmental monitoring for other vertical markets.
“Our customers benefit from strategic partnerships like we have with Connected Technologies and all the possibilities it brings for loT connectivity,” said Rick Cadiz, vice president of sales and marketing, IPVideo Corp. “This integration is a value proposition that allows dealers to pull in security for privacy areas, in addition to all the other alerts. We are in thousands of schools and expanding with new features like keyword alerting, turning Halo into a privacy area security device across markets like hotels, hospitals, universities and commercial buildings.”
