All K-12 facilities with students onsite face a potential issue: illicit activities happening in areas that are difficult to monitor, such as bathrooms. Security cameras cannot be installed in restrooms as they impede on privacy, and that can make it hard to supervise and prevent actions that pose safety concerns for both students and staff, like vaping or bullying. You want to ensure your students have the privacy they’re entitled to, but you also want to ensure they are safe and are following school policies. That’s where HALO sensors come in.
HALO sensors are a device that allows for comprehensive building awareness in private areas where you cannot use a camera or microphone. A single HALO sensor can provide:
Emergency key word alerting
Indoor air quality monitoring
Temperature, humidity, and pressure alerting
By installing a HALO sensor in school bathrooms, a variety of prohibited activities or unsafe situations can be detected and alert the school’s security system to an alarm event. And if there are cameras that allow monitoring of the entry/exit of the room, you can also link the event to the video and log it with a date and time stamp for later review. You’ll be notified immediately when an illicit activity occurs, and can identify all those involved quicker and easier than ever. With HALO sensors, you can help ensure that all students are safe when they are in the restroom as well as deter future perpetrators who take advantage of vulnerable environments.
LONG has successfully installed HALO sensors in bathrooms at numerous K-12 locations and integrated these devices with a LONG-installed security system.
