Soter Technologies Receives Award from IoT Evolution World for LoRaWAN Excellence

FlySense® vape and bullying detection platform is recognized for offering secure network access to support health and wellness in schools


Ronkonkoma, New York, Sep.18, 2023 — Soter Technologies, a leading provider of innovative environmental sensor and software technologies, announced that it has received the 2023 IoT Evolution LPWAN Excellence Award from IoT Evolution World and Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) for its FlySense® FS286L vape detection solution with integrated LoRaWAN® connectivity. The award recognizes achievements in Low Power WAN (LPWAN), which includes LoRaWAN and other low power wireless technologies. Soter was recognized for its exceptional creativity and innovation in helping schools reduce incidents of vaping through its simple and secure detection and alerting platform.

FlySense FS286L 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. The device utilizes a LoRaWAN radio and does not have any microphone or recording capability to ensure privacy. The FlySense product line also provides connectivity to cellular, Wi-Fi, and other wireless and wired networks.

“Soter’s FlySense solutions exemplify the application of wireless technologies to provide solutions that address real-world challenges. It is my honor to congratulate Soter for their innovative work and contributions to the rapidly evolving wireless technology sector,” said Carl Ford, community developer, IoT Evolution World and Crossfire Media.

“We are very proud to receive this recognition from IoT Evolution World and TMC, and are grateful that our decision to integrate LoRaWAN into our product line has been so well received,” said Derek Peterson, Soter’s chief executive officer. “Soter has always adopted new capabilities and innovations that improve the performance of our products. We believe that the addition of LoRaWAN to our portfolio will allow us to serve even more schools and further reduce incidents of vaping.”
