Is Vaping Making School Bathrooms Unsafe?

Student vaping is a problem facing all K-12 facilities. Bathrooms are a particularly common location for vaping; there are never too many people in there, stalls allow for even greater privacy, and there are no security cameras. This makes school bathrooms difficult to supervise and to prevent actions that are unsafe to students, like vaping or bullying. If you are trying to prevent vaping in school bathrooms, look no further than HALO sensors.

Vape Detection Sensors
HALO sensors are a device that allows for comprehensive security awareness in private areas where you cannot use a camera or microphone. A single HALO sensor can provide:

  • Vaping detection
  • Emergency key word alerting
  • Audible alerting
  • Vandalism alerting
  • THC detection
  • Gunshot detection
  • Chemical alerting
  • Indoor air quality monitoring
  • Tamper alerting
  • Temperature, humidity, and pressure alerting

Our WSIPC Purchasing Program partner LONG Building Technologies has successfully installed anti-vape resources like HALO sensors in bathrooms at numerous K-12 locations and integrated these devices with a LONG-installed security system for faster, better detection.

If you're looking to stop vaping in your school bathrooms and keep your students and staff safe, contact Jim Jamison Jr. ( / 206-300-1503) to learn more.
