Air quality sensors—or vape detectors—do not record video, but can be paired with a linked camera. For example, an air quality sensor installed in a school bathroom might be paired with a camera that is positioned outside the bathroom door. When the sensor inside the bathroom detects a potential vaping/smoking event, the camera footage provides additional context for the event.
The Verkada SV25 sensor leverages privacy and security features that allow organization admins to monitor their facilities while respecting individuals’ privacy:
- All audio recording capabilities are disabled by default.
- Only Admin-level users can enable audio features and must review and accept Terms and Conditions prior to activating.
- Audio must be enabled at the device level, to ensure that recording is only used as needed.
- Admins also have the capability to disable audio across all devices with a single click.
A vape detector, or air quality sensor, can monitor and detect up to 15 environmental conditions including temperature, humidity, CO2, and PM2.5. Pairing the sensors with cameras and noise level monitoring and recording provide comprehensive insights on environmental conditions.
Connectivity Point installs Verkada’s SV20 series air quality sensors. These all-in-one sensors can monitor up to 15 environmental conditions like PM2.5 to detect vaping/smoking, or temperature, motion and noise to detect large gatherings in places like school bathrooms. The sensors provide automatic, real-time monitoring of environmental conditions, and can help reduce event response time in educational settings.
A vape detector senses particulate matter (PM), which are solid particles and liquid droplets in the air. The Verkada SV23 sensor can detect PM2.5 particles, like those emitted from vapes and e-cigarettes. Verkada air quality devices use multiple on-board sensors to measure volatile organic compounds (VOCs), PM2.5, and motion to determine the likelihood of a vaping/smoking event.

Connectivity Point designs and installs technology infrastructure, including data cabling (or structured cabling), audio/visual equipment, security solutions, telephone systems, sound masking, cellular amplification, and wireless networks.
Connectivity Point specializes in the design and installation of infrastructure data, voice, video, wireless, and control applications, including network cabling (also referred to as data cabling or structured cabling), audio/visual equipment, security solutions, telephone systems, sound masking, cellular amplification, and wireless networks.
Sound masking works when the emitters are placed near the listener. A sound masking system placed inside a server room will not mask the sound. If a space experiences high volume from nearby server room, a sound masking system placed in that room may help reduce the noise level.
Connectivity Point can assess the environment and determine the best solution. When assessing and designing for acoustics, Connectivity Point adheres to the “ABCs”:
- ABSORB – This involves the use of acoustic tiles, sound insulating wall materials, artwork or tapestries to help absorb sound.
- BLOCK – In some cases sound insulation can be achieved through specific placement and style of building materials like walls, doors, glass, and insulation.
- COVER – Through the use of sound masking, artificial sound, music, television, or a fan in your space, you can cover sound with other noise to distract you from the originating sound.
