how do vape detectors work

Vape detectors are becoming increasingly common in schools due to the popularity of vape pens and e-cigarettes among young people. This blog uncovers how vape detectors work and if they actually deter vaping.


How do vape detectors detect vape?

Vape detectors use a particulate sensor to detect the presence of particulates released by vaping. If vape particulates are detected, school officials will receive a silent alert so they can put a stop to it.


What is the purpose of a vape detector?

The purpose of a vape detector is to limit the use of e-cigarettes and vape pens in areas where vaping is not permitted.

In recent years vaping has become increasingly popular among children, which is a growing concern among health officials.

Many vape e-liquids contain as much nicotine as an entire pack of cigarettes. This is a big problem for teenage vapers because, research suggests, "nicotine exposure during adolescence alters acetylcholine and glutamate receptor signalling in the prefrontal cortex, one of the last brain areas to mature."

This may lead to problems such as mood disorders, loss of impulse control, a reduced attention span, among others.

In order to combat this, more and more schools are taking steps to crack down on vaping and catch students who use vape devices on school premises.


Do vape detectors deter vaping?

Vape detectors are a highly useful deterrent in schools for catching children who attempt to vape in spaces like toilets and common rooms.

Vape detectors are designed to be more discreet than smoke/heat detectors, silently alerting a member of staff when someone is vaping on the premises. However, while they may be silent, they are clearly visible.

Much like other security devices, the mere presence of vape detectors in a school or workplace is often enough to deter people from vaping where they shouldn’t.
