At Soter, we understand the challenges with the vaping epidemic and other behavioral issues that educators face and the importance of vape detector for schools. Our company was founded to address these issues. In 2017, we introduced the first vape detector for schools to the world. Today with FlySense® FS300, our 8th generation vape detector and bullying monitor, we continuously improve the product capabilities and ease of use. As the leader in vape detection, we not only innovate new product solutions. We also work with legislators and communities to solve these problems together.

Backed by decades of experience and dedication to product design, we now deliver the most comprehensive safety and wellness products on the market. Our caring for the communities around us is the foundation of our passion for applying cutting-edge technology to improve and save lives.
