In 2007, Ozonics established itself as an industry leader in active scent-control technology for treestand and ground blind hunters with the introduction of its revolutionary Ozonics HR100 in-the-field ozone generator. The all-new HR500 offers significant performance enhancements including significant noise reduction, a “hands-free” app-enabled interface and remote-control compatibility.

Thanks to a reconfigured fan placement and a new exclusive phoenix circuit board, the patented HR500 ozone generator delivers a 50 percent reduction in noise.

“Customers have always told us they love the unit, but if they had one request, it would be to make it quieter,” said Ozonics president Buddy Piland. “We set a goal to reduce noise by at least 33 percent and greatly exceeded that with this new design.”

Additionally, the HR500 is Bluetooth app enabled, giving you complete operational control via your smartphone for true hands-free operation. Critical data such as remaining battery life, current local weather conditions and more is at your fingertips via the app. You can also adjust the ozone output of the unit without ever having to reach up in search of the proper mode again. If a shooter buck is sighted, you can discreetly change the mode and increase the ozone, ensuring that your buck finds his way into bow range. The app is free and can be downloaded from the Apple and Google app stores.

An optional remote key-fob can be added to the HR500 to allow users to increase ozone output at the press of a button. This feature is ideal for times when winds pick up, more deer enter the field, or your buck of a lifetime unexpectedly appears.
