Building Smarter and Safer Spaces

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.

With our web-based management platform, you have access to customise your monitoring and receive alerts each time an accident occurs.

What if I lose internet?
What happens if a camera is tampered with?
Do cameras record in high definition?
Do the cameras have night vision?
Do you have Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras?

What are bandwidth & uplink requirements for video?
Where is camera footage and data stored?

Depending on the camera model, recordings may represent up to 365 days of continuously recorded video and audio. We also uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) for cloud servers and storage of archived video. Every camera also comes with 30 days’ worth of free cloud backup storage.

How difficult is it to install cameras?

Our cameras are installed with just one PoE cable for both power and data, and are connected instantly to your command platform.

Am I able to give access to specific cameras or users?

Yes, customisable permissions allow you to select which cameras users have access to—as well as what they can do with that access.

What if I lose internet?

Cameras continue to record even if an internet outage occurs as long as there is a power connection. Offline mode allows you to watch footage over your Local Area Network.

What happens if a camera is tampered with?

All cameras have a built-in accelerometer to identify interference. If a device detects tampering, it will automatically begin to upload high-resolution video to the cloud.

Do cameras record in high definition?

Our cameras all record at high definition (2 megapixels) as a minimum, with resolution up to 4k (8 megapixels).

Do the cameras have night vision?

All of our camera models have infra-red capabilities for recording in low light. The infra-red range depends on the camera model, with a maximum range of 50m.

Do you have Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras?

We do not offer traditional pan-tilt-zoom cameras, but our fisheye series has electronic pan-tilt-zoom which provides this functionality digitally.

Is there a log of user activity for internal controls or compliance purposes?

By default, we log all user and camera activities in the Command Platform. Audit Logs are maintained at two different levels - organization-wide and per camera.

What are bandwidth & uplink requirements for video?

Since our cameras record video locally, they don't consume as much bandwidth as typical IP camera systems; hybrid cloud cameras operate at 20kbps at a steady state.
