The HALO IoT smart sensor detects the vapour of electronic cigarettes along with several other environmental hazards and was recently named Best digital home security system at the largest trade fair in the security industry in the country.
In terms of design, The HALO IoT smart sensor looks simple as a normal smoke detector, but it features 11 built-in sensors that monitor air quality, noise, chemicals, light and environmental conditions. In addition to vaping (both products containing nicotine and THC), it can also detect smoke, shots, screams, glass breakage, carbon monoxide, natural gas, occupation, humidity, handling, pressure and more.
