Soter Technologies, a developer and creator of solutions for environmental intelligence, has introduced improvements and new features to the FlySense FS255, a vape detection sensor for schools and workplaces.

FlySense is a cloud-based platform with Wi-Fi sensors that detect and send alerts when vaping or harmful bullying incidents are taking place in bathrooms or other isolated areas where cameras are not permitted. When the sensor detects decibel level anomalies typically associated with bullying or chemicals from vaping, it sends an immediate email, text or in-app notification to designated school or workplace officials.

The new features of FlySense 255 include environmental sensors that read temperature and humidity, which are critical for detecting vape, even in small quantities. The product supports 5 GHz Wi-Fi and includes an advanced algorithm to identify and detect volatile organic compounds that are present when vape pens and e-cigarettes are used. The device also includes a new third-party application interface, remote updates, external camera relay support and a redesigned mobile application.

“Our goal is to develop products that address the vaping epidemic across the country and other safety concerns in schools,” said Derek Peterson, CEO of Soter Technologies, in a prepared statement.
