Motorola Solutions Acquires IPVideo, Creator of the HALO Smart Sensor

CHICAGO – December 18, 2023 – Motorola Solutions has acquired IPVideo, the creator of the HALO Smart Sensor, an all-in-one intelligent sensor that detects real-time health and safety threats. The company is based in Bay Shore, New York.

The HALO Smart Sensor is a multifunctional safety and security device with built-in vape detection and air quality monitoring, gunshot detection, abnormal noise and motion detection and emergency keyword detection. In areas where cameras and video security solutions are not suitable, such as restrooms, classrooms, hospital rooms and hotel rooms, the HALO Smart Sensor can improve situational awareness and extend the perimeter of security while protecting privacy.

“With its powerful sensor capabilities, HALO extends our end-to-end physical security offering by integrating a non-video threat detection product into our safety and security ecosystem,” said Mahesh Saptharishi, executive vice president and chief technology officer, Motorola Solutions. “We see this as an opportunity to introduce additional detection solutions that help our customers protect people, property and places.”

This acquisition reinforces Motorola Solutions’ commitment to improving safety and security by offering a cost-effective sensor that is easy to deploy and operate for enterprises of all sizes. Motorola Solutions and IPVideo will continue to deliver security solutions that help create safer schools, safer hospitals, safer hotels and safer businesses.

“We are excited to join Motorola Solutions and look forward to strengthening the innovative solutions we deliver to our customers,” said David Antar, president, IPVideo. “Together, we will continue investing in and building upon Motorola Solutions’ leading safety and security ecosystem, equipping customers with advanced ways to protect their people and enhance their operational insights.”
