We bought and tested the original Halo here. Now, IPVM has tested HALO 2.0. How well did it perform? Inside, we examine the following:

  • Have vape and THC detection improved?
  • How does Halo's new anti-masking feature work?
  • How well do keyword recognition and aggression work?
  • How has the device's UI improved?
  • How easy is it for users to configure the device?
  • How has VMS integration changed?
