Vaping Detection Solution / Vape Detector


Vaping is increasingly becoming a national concern for our kids, and the effect vaping is having on their health and well-being. Even those kids who have not tried smoking cigarettes are being lured by the new flashy “techy” way to using nicotine addictive e-cigarettes with many the flavor options available without fully understanding the risks involved.

Many facilities, including high schools, understand that education and deterrent programs must be introduced to reduce the vaping usage in these public properties. Understanding where vaping is occurring most frequently is important to understand in helping to reduce vaping incidents in the schools. Moniotoring thre quality of the air in washrooms and lockers rooms can help detect vaping by monitoring ther change in the air composition.

How does the Clarity Vape Detector Sensor work?

The Clarity IoT Vape Detector uses a series of chemical gas sensors and software intelligence to detect and report on when abnormal gases are detected in the air which could mean vapor is being emitted from a vaping device, high CO2 levels, etc.

The vape detector sensor will immediately alert supervisors, teachers, and/or administrators, in real-time, to where the vape detector detected the vaping event. 

The Clarity IoT Vape Dection Sensor is a device that can be easily installed in the washroom, locker rooms, office setting, hotel room, and other such places where it is important to track and be alerted when vape is detected and where it is occurring.

The Vape Detector can be installed using multiple power sources including plugging the sensor into a wall plug, by powering the detector using Power-Over-Ethernet (POE), or by powering the detector using a battery.

The vape detection sensor should always be installed in an open area where the air to be monitored flows freely. It is recommended that these devices are not installed in air vents which accelerates the flow of air and skew the results and/or miss vaping events.

Each sensor covers a 15×15 foot room with a standard 9-foot ceiling. Larger rooms may require more sensors.


Automatic Daily, Weekly and Monthly Vape detection reports are included with each solution deployed. These reports can be customized to match your school/work schedule helping you to uncover the patterns when air vaping is occurring and helping to correct the issue. The solution includes the ability to generate alerts and notifications over SMS and email to the people in the organization who have a need to know.  A sample of the daily report is included below.
