Johnson Controls, Soter Technologies Bring Vaping-Detection Tech to Schools

The new C∙CURE IQ vaping detection and alert device and platform is based on Soter’s technology, software and air-quality sensors.

MILWAUKEE – Johnson Controls is collaborating with Soter Technologies, a growing health-safety technology company, to offer technology to school administrators to combat student vaping. The companies have announced that Johnson Controls will integrate Soter’s school vape detection and alert technology into its offerings as an expanded offering to its security and building technology solutions. The new C∙CURE IQ vaping detection and alert device and platform is based on Soter’s technology, software and air quality sensors.

“Soter Technologies has developed best-in-class technology and devices which will benefit our clients in the security market,” says Jason M. Ouellette, head of technology & business innovation for Johnson Controls Security Products. “This technology provides a needed solution and tools to address the growing vaping epidemic. Soter has proven this technology in the education vertical and created an awareness and education program that reduces vaping in places where cameras cannot be used.”

The soon-to-be-introduced C∙CURE IQ FlySense integration is a cloud-based platform that connects multiple IoT devices containing environmental sensors. Sensors monitor the air for the presence of vape chemicals, and when detected, sends an immediate notification or alert to security and/or administrators’ computers and mobile devices allowing them to quickly respond. Through the integration with C∙CURE IQ, autonomous security response to these events can be achieved.

“As a growing company and solutions creator, our collaboration with Johnson Controls will bring our technologies and innovation to a larger audience and new markets across the United States and around the globe. Youth vaping is a worldwide problem and together Johnson Controls and Soter are leveraging proven technology to make a difference in the lives of young people and support school administrators as they battle vaping on campuses,” says Derek Peterson, CEO of Soter Technologies.

Johnson Controls previewed and showcased the C∙CURE IQ vaping detection and alert device and platform at the recent 2023 ISC West show in Las Vegas.
