    Introducing ‘O-Zone’

    Helios2 comes with Zone’s new core operating platform: O-Zone.

    O-Zone is a ground-up re-engineering of the operating system running Zone sites worldwide.

    O-Zone is based on the principles of simplicity, control, and ease-of-use, and takes advantage of modern technology and security.

    Zone’s new Helios2 system with the O-Zone platform make running your arena a breeze! O-Zone has been designed and built to support the next-generation of WiFi-enabled arena accessories, further reducing wiring and time and money spend on installation.

    Operators can start and finish games types, interact with vests, change settings and colours, print scorecards, and access diagnostics data, all from the pal of their hands, anywhere and anytime. You can access O-Zone from any internet connected device.

    • Operations are beautifully simple and easy to manage
    • Locked-down system with multi-user security
    • A dedicated all-in-one ‘black box’ laser tag system: just for laser tag!

Zone’s local membership is new in 2018 and allows for super-easy player, game and alias assignment, with Facebook and WeChat online score summary postings.

    Choose the membership solution that’s right for you!

    Dynamic diagnostic tools

    The Helios2 platform provides diagnostics and maintenance tools to streamline operations. Every LED, speaker, sensor, charger, cable and much more is routinely checked and any faults reported instantly. The operator receives instant notifications—faults are therefore fixed earlier, keeping the maximum number of vests running at all times.

    A diagnostic overview of all vests at all times enables quick identification of issues, whether that be faults or low charge. Every board is embedded with unique identification, providing  accurate fault tracking and resolving issues faster.

    Our Helios laser tag systems are incredibly easy to maintain as any internal component is hot-swappable using our patented ‘Swaptronics‘ system…

    This means you just open the plastics, pull out any board or part that may be malfunctioning and then replace it with a new board from your spare parts kit. No soldering required!

    Exciting arena accessories

    With Helios2, the thrills start as soon as your players vest-up… But the fun doesn’t stop there…

    Combined with Zone’s industry-leading range of arena accessories, those players are immersed in a vibrant, interactive game experience. Our arena accessories bring new exciting experiences for players.

    Zone bases

    Bases (sometimes called ‘outposts’) have been the staple of laser tag for decades, and Zone bases are no exception. They are strategic centre points for teams to strategize around and become targets for exciting and fun battles.

    Zone targets

    Targets are Zone’s most popular arena add-on, and for good reason! These bright little devices bring games alive, even when there are only a few players.

    Zone gates

    Gates are multi-functional arena doorways that can be captured and turned against opponents. Integrating our popular target technology, the Zone Gate can tag and be tagged by players and adds something special to the Zone game architecture.
