Vape Detection & Environmental Sensors for Schools

  • Date: 05/04/2024
  • Category: General

Verkada Environmental Sensors are all–in–one air quality sensors benefiting the everyday lives of students and staff by:

  • Ensuring buildings and infrastructure operate optimally
  • Providing critical insights into undesirable behaviour such as bullying and vaping
  • Remotely access via Command on web and the mobile app

Does this sound good? Are you involved with managing a school or academy? Read on for some more great features and benefits:

  • Actionable data and alerts, Verkada Sensors deliver real-time insights on any device. Stay ahead of events – Alert setup takes a matter of minutes and receive notifications in real–time via phone or email.
  • Simple to set up – With just an Ethernet cable, teams can bring up their Verkada Sensors in minutes. No configuration software or calibration required.
  • Natively integrated platform – One–click pairing with a Verkada camera for enhanced visibility into the school’s environment to understand why specific readings or events are occurring in the environment.
  • Easy to use – User–friendly set–up and management reduces the dependence on your IT team.
  • Coverage built–in – Verkada offers a 10–year hardware warranty and automatic software and firmware updates, lowering the total cost of ownership

Verkada Environmental Sensor Use Cases:

  1. Vape detection
    Teachers and the other faculty can leverage the vape and smoke detection sensor in bathrooms and locker rooms to help identify vape events on campus. When paired with a Verkada camera outside of the bathroom or locker room, school leaders can capture additional evidence to
    help address, prevent and deter on–campus vaping.
  2. Air quality monitoring
    Indoor school environments often contain unnoticed indoor pollutants, which are present in most buildings at 2-5 times the levels found outdoors and can cause a variety of health problems, including: headaches, fatigue, sore throat, dizziness and more. By monitoring CO2, PM2.5 and other indoor air quality essentials, schools can improve the health and safety of their indoor school environments.
  3. Server room monitoring
    Schools today depend on high–speed internet connectivity and 100% uptime for key IT resources. To protect valuable IT infrastructure and avoid costly downtime, schools can use the Verkada sensors to proactively monitor temperature and humidity in IDF closets. By monitoring these conditions and receiving alerts in real–time as conditions deviate from pre–set levels, school IT professionals can ensure server and device uptime even when they’re not on site.
  4. Food storage
    Schools often have on–campus dining options and associated food service assets such as refrigerators and freezers. If a door is left open or if one of these assets experiences unexpected downtime, school facilities can strain to meet the needs of students. As such, schools can use Verkada’s Environmental sensors to monitor refrigerators and freezers in cafeterias to minimize food spoilage and maximize freshness.
