Today we introduce our FlySense 286 product suite incorporating expanded wireless network connectivity options. Addressing the needs of schools and enterprises around the world, FlySense is the first vape and bullying sensor in the market with embedded global cellular (4G/LTE), LoRaWAN, or YoLink support. The suite enables schools and other organizations to detect and deter undesirable behaviors that affect the mental and physical health of students and other occupants.
“FlySense devices are already deployed in 22 countries, utilizing Wi-Fi and wired local networks. The integration of additional wireless capabilities expands the application footprint for FlySense in nearly every world region where different wireless technologies are preferred. It also addresses the security concerns of school network administrators and IT departments,” said Derek Peterson, chief executive officer of Soter. “Customers can now deploy FlySense 286 across any combination of wired, Wi-Fi, cellular, LoRaWAN, and YoLink networks and achieve the same real-time health and safety notifications that our current FlySense customers have come to rely upon.”
FlySense 286 sensors detect the chemical signature of emissions from vaping pens, enabling automated alerting to appropriate personnel. The sensors also monitor ambient noise levels without invading privacy, allowing alerts to be sent when noise patterns change in ways indicative of conflict or bullying. Built with privacy in mind, FlySense devices do not have any microphone or recording capability. FlySense 286 offers optional battery backup and is designed for plug-and-play setup. In most cases, the devices are powered up and online in a matter of minutes.
Many organizations follow cybersecurity best practices or mandates to minimize the variety of devices attached to a network that also carries proprietary or private information such as email, browsing, cloud connections, and server access. Operating FlySense devices over wide area networks such as cellular or LoRaWAN, and alternative local networks using YoLink, provides this physical separation without raising concerns about any cybersecurity risks.
The FlySense 286 product suite is available for purchase through Soter and its authorized partners.
