Johnson Controls, an industry leader in smart, healthy, and sustainable buildings, has partnered with Soter Technologies, a rapidly expanding health-safety technology firm, to provide schools with tools to curb the use of electronic cigarettes among students.
The two firms have made public their agreement for Johnson Controls to add Soter’s cutting-edge vape detection and alarm technology to its existing and future security and building technology products.
Construction of Technical Answers
The CCURE IQ vaping detection and warning device and platform will make its debut at the Johnson Controls booth in the Innovation Area at the ISC West Technology Conference in Las Vegas on March 28-30. Soter’s unique hardware, software, and air quality sensors form the foundation of the CCURE IQ platform.
Our clients in the security industry will greatly benefit from the cutting-edge technology and cutting-edge gadgets that Soter Technologies has created. This innovation supplies much-required resources to combat the ever-expanding e-cigarette market. According to Jason M. Ouellette, head of technology & business innovation for Johnson Controls Security Products, “Soter has validated this technology in the education vertical and established an awareness and education program that minimizes vaping in settings where cameras cannot be deployed.
Sensors for the Natural World are Included
Our partnership with Johnson Controls will help us reach a wider audience and enter new markets across the United States and around the world as we continue to expand as a solutions provider. According to Derek Peterson, CEO of Soter Technologies, “youth vaping is a global problem, and together Johnson Controls and Soter are utilizing proven technology to make a difference in the lives of young people and help school officials in their struggle against vaping on campuses.”
The soon-to-be-released CCURE IQ FlySense integration is a cloud-based platform that links together a wide variety of Internet of Things gadgets outfitted with sensors for the natural world. When chemicals from vaping are discovered, the sensors transmit an alarm to the computers and mobile devices of security and/or administrators so they may act swiftly. Integrating with CCURE IQ allows for an independent security response to occur.
