A charter school district in California began experiencing a high rate of vaping among their middle school and high school students. The administrators knew finding the right vape detection system for their facilities was important. They began looking for a multi-purpose security solution that could be used in bathrooms and other areas not covered by surveillance cameras.
After researching various vape detection sensors, one stood out from the crowd: IPVideo Corporation’s HALO IoT Smart Sensor. The versatility of the sensor and its additional applications – including air quality monitoring, gunshot detection, and masking capabilities – made it an ideal solution. One of the main reasons the school district selected HALO was to have the ability to utilize it for other applications in the future.
The school district began implementing HALO sensors in their middle and high school buildings in the summer of 2022. Since going live, the sensors have triggered numerous alerts to the school staff when vaping is detected on campus. This has allowed for immediate corrective action and discouraged students from vaping on campus. The schools are now equipped to effectively manage vape detection and decrease vaping incidents.
