AxxonSoft and HALO integration: New Opportunities for Industry Solutions

AxxonSoft security software is now integrated with HALO Smart Sensor vape detectors, opening up new avenues for industry solution experiences. The joint solution may find practical application in different verticals, such as, for example, education or manufacturing. 

HALO Smart Sensor vape detectors are able to detect vaping, measure the content of air for harmful chemicals components (such as THS oils), and intentional vape masking behavior by using aerosols to cover it up. Besides, HALO has 38 different types of sensors (temperature, humidity, CO, gunshot, etc.) that cover a comprehensive set of indicators for health and safety monitoring and vaping detection. 

Axxon One intelligent video management software (VMS) can alert the school or university management of when and where students vape on school grounds and trigger recording to get video evidence, or warn of elevated level of hazardous components, detected by the HALO, in the air on the industrial sites. The current sensor readings can be superimposed on the video from cameras located nearby the sensors, which is handy for both real-time monitoring and investigation of various incidents.

The relevance and urgency of the joint solution are confirmed, particularly, by the increasingly frequent cases of students vaping inside the educational premises. Teaming up to resolve such a pressing issue has allowed us to contribute to making campuses safer and overall better places. 

Multi-Function Sensor Technology

Health Sensor Readings

Carbon Monoxide

Most people are already aware of the devastating consequences of exposure to excessive levels of this colorless, odorless gas. Low-level exposure from fuel-burning appliances can potentially have negative effects, such as disorientation and memory loss. 

Carbon Dioxide

While it was long believed that the effects of high CO2 levels were benign, research has shown that even concentrations as low as 1,000 ppm can have an impact on a person's ability to think clearly and make decisions.  

People themselves are the main producer of indoor CO2, as it is a consequence of our respiratory process. In many businesses, this often results in excessive CO2 levels because of insufficient ventilation. 

Nitrogen Dioxide

The ambient trace gas nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is a byproduct of both natural and human-made processes. Numerous serious health issues like hypertension, diabetes, heart and circulatory disorders, as well as death, may result from prolonged exposure to NO2.

Temperature and Humidity

Mold and mildew growth are driven by high temperatures and high humidity levels. These could harm the structural integrity of your workplace and give sensitive people symptoms similar to allergies. Monitoring these levels might alert you to potential causes including structural flaws and leaks as well as facility and health issues. 

VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds)

Volatile organic compounds are gases that are released from a number of substances and can have both immediate and long-term negative effects on health. Numerous VOC concentrations can be up to ten times higher indoors than they are outdoors.  

Many household products, including cleaners, antiseptics, paints, and varnishes, are sources of VOCs. VOCs are also created when fuels like wood and natural gas are burned.  

Short-term exposure to low concentrations of VOCs can result in minor complaints like fatigue, nausea, and throat discomfort. Long-term exposure to high VOC concentrations has been associated with liver and kidney damage as well as more severe respiratory irritation. Even when a product isn't being actively utilized, it still has the potential to release VOCs into the air. 

Particulate Matter

Particulate matter (PM) is a mix of particles and droplets in the air. For those who are otherwise healthy, exposure to PM in sufficient amounts can irritate their eyes, nose, throat, and lungs, causing allergy-like symptoms and shortness of breath. Additionally, it may worsen pre-existing medical conditions like asthma and heart disease. PM 2.5 is regarded as the single greatest environmental health risk across the globe.  

Outdoor sources like car exhaust, wildfires, and power plant emissions can have an impact on indoor PM levels. However, numerous indoors activities also release PM; among these are smoking, cooking, and using fireplaces. 

Safety Sensor Readings

Help (Spoken Keyword)

Five spoken keyword phrases are pre-loaded on each HALO device. Anyone can use these words when they are under pressure or in need. This is especially useful for teachers and students who need assistance, schools where bullying is an issue, nurses and hospital patients and hotel staff.  HALO will notify those who have been selected to receive these alerts whenever the keyword is said aloud. 


Using frequency sound pattern and percussion, two-factor authentication can be applied to recognize gunshots and their location. 


HALO learns the characteristic of unusual noise in an area using machine learning. When a threshold above normal is identified for a predetermined amount of time, HALO warns when it exceeds what is considered normal. 

Light Level

HALO can determine the amount of light in a specific area and express that information in Lux. This can be advantageous for occupancy detection, enhancing the effectiveness of emergencies, and combining with other sensors to detect intrusions. 


By detecting vibrations caused by striking the HALO, throwing objects at it, or even moving the ceiling tile it is set in, the tamper sensor on HALO helps to prevent vandalism and the disabling of the device. 

Vape Sensor Readings

Marijuana (THC)

THC is the chemical component found in marijuana. The HALO Smart Sensor is the only sensor that can detect THC oil released by vape pens as well as other conventional smoking methods. 


In order to automatically learn the environment and alarm when vaping is detected, HALO uses a Dynamic Vape Detection algorithm. HALO is the only product that can alert and differentiate between vaping, vaping with THC, and intentionally masking vaping behavior by using aerosols to cover up vaping. 


In order to mask the distinctive scent of marijuana or other vaping smells, people who are seeking to conceal their vaping behavior may sometimes spray cologne or other aerosols. 

Integrated Functionality

HALO IOT Smart Sensor is integrated as an IP device that enables you to trigger alarms upon reaching the pre-configured sensor thresholds and display the current values of the parameters detected by these sensors on the live and recorded video stream. 

Alarm Triggering by Events

The device has 38 different types of sensors. This allows for creating an unlimited number of events on the web, classified by the set of parameters:

  • Event Identifier (specified when an event is created in the device web interface; associated with a specific VMS sensor) 
  • Data Source (sensor type) 
  • Threshold (alarm triggering level) 
  • Advanced (trigger rule)

Different events can use the same Data Source at the same time.

Alarm Triggering by Events

After the event is created, you can receive alarm triggers of sensors in VMS.​ 

Alarm Triggering by Events

When an event is created in the device web interface, a unique event identifier is specified, with which a particular VMS sensor is sunsequently associated. In the integration, each sensor number is tied to a specific event ID, therefore, it is necessary to set the event ID on the device to those registered in the integration. The device web interface can be used for that. 

Here are the correspondence tables for VMS Sensor No., Event Identifier and Data Source:
