HALO offers the lowest cost of system installation in its class, requiring the smallest deployed footprint and minimal maintenance.
Back to Back Installation
To provide 100% coverage, competing systems advise that sensor beams should be overlapped. This creates a large installation footprint and can double the amount of mounting and cabling materials required.
HALO solves this problem.
Each HALO node contains its own blind spot coverage, which uses active Infra-Red (IR) sensors to provide detection coverage up to 2.5m from each sensor.
This means that HALO nodes can be installed back to back requiring only 1 mounting pole per 2 nodes, reducing the costs for installation, the time required for setup and the install footprint.
One Cable – Power Over Ethernet
HALO nodes have been optimised to ensure the lowest possible power consumption. Nodes can be powered using POE (Power over Ethernet) meaning that each node may be operated with only one cable to provide power and data transfer.
Communications via HALO are based on the Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) which is readily used by access control systems.
Reducing the cost of ownership
Minimal Nuisance Call Outs
HALO ensures that the nuisance alarm rate and associated man power is kept as low as possible. Intelligent DSP ensures that problematic triggers such as wildlife and environmental factors reduce the number of nuisance alarms.
Remote Configuration and Maintenance
HALO may be configured and maintained remotely by the installer using dedicated Control software.
Install using existing infrastructure
HALO is equipped to work using existing infrastructure. The system supports RS485, relay integration and CAT 5/6.
