Building Smarter and Safer Spaces in Schools

by Jess Parry

The health impact of vaping


According to the British Heart Foundation, “More people may be using them, but e-cigarettes are not harm-free. According to a study published in Environmental Science & Technology in 2016, “the vapour also has harmful emissions, including possible carcinogens and irritants, though at a lower level than cigarettes.” Combining these two technologies has risks that are not completely understood yet. Furthermore, since these devices are small and discrete, physical monitoring is much harder than with traditional cigarettes. In order to detect these harmful particles, you require a device that can do so.

How it works when pairing with Cameras

Private Areas

Vaping and Smoking often occur in spaces like restrooms and locker rooms. This is usually the case for schools, where students will vape in discreet places, such as toilet cubicles.

To ensure there is still privacy taken into consideration, the cameras are placed outside of these areas and positioned at a point of entry. When reviewing events, this will allow users to see who comes and goes, during particular incidents.

Public Areas

When it comes to non-private areas, such as classrooms, hallways and any other open spaces, users may place sensors and cameras in the same area at their your own discretion.

To ensure you have the best context and visibility, the cameras should be positioned towards areas of particular interest. This can include directly under where the sensor is and where vaping/smoking behaviour is likely to occur.

What you can do to combat vaping on school premises

The World Health Organization recommended that e-cigarettes be banned from public indoor areas and anywhere smoking is prohibited in 2016.  This is a challenge since ordinary smoke detectors cannot detect vaping.

The sensor must be designed in order to detect movement and organic compounds in the air to determine if someone is vaping or smoking indoors.

The SV11 Environmental Sensor is an ideal solution for all-in-one monitoring. You will be notified of changes in noise, air quality, temperature, humidity, or motion in the room by this device.
