Addressing the challenge of vaping, especially in restricted areas, often involves cumbersome solutions like shutting down spaces, frequent staff patrols, or even intrusive CCTV surveillance. Enter VapeGuardian: a seamless, always-on system designed to detect vaping incidents efficiently. This innovative solution operates continuously, conserving valuable resources and eliminating the need for constant manual monitoring. Upon detecting vaping activity, VapeGuardian promptly alerts staff, enabling them to respond in real-time. This targeted approach ensures that attention is focused precisely when and where it’s needed, streamlining the process of maintaining a vape-free environment.

Frequently asked questions

Vaping and vape detection is an always developing landscape. Here are some answers to commonly asked questions on the topic

Can we just use smoke detectors?

No. Unfortunately, smoke detectors are only equipped to detect smoke. Vaping doesn’t produce smoke and therefore renders smoke alarms ineffective.

How many sensors do we need?

This depends on the area you are wanting to cover. Each sensor has an effective range of 12×12′ (based on an 9′ high ceiling). We recommend purchasing one every 12′ squared of floor space.

How do we receive alerts?

Notifications are sent within seconds of vaping being detected via SMS, email, the VapeGuardian apps (Android or iOS) or the web-app.

How many sensors can we have?

Unlimited. Our system can notify you of vaping on an unlimited number of sensors. So, no matter how large your organisation, you can ensure that vaping is not permitted anywhere.

We also only charge £16.99 per month for all the sensors you need (when sensors are purchased upfront).

How many users can we add?

Unlimited. The main admin (we call them a “Manager”) user will be able to assign an unlimited number of users (we call them “staff”) to the account.

Why does VapeGuardian cost so much less than other sensors?

We are a UK start-up that specialises in vape detection. It’s all we do, and we do it very well. We have chosen to work on smaller margins to help schools to be able to afford our system and in-turn better serve the cause of putting an end to vaping. 

We have a strong firewall, can the sensors still connect?

We work with hundreds of different types of firewalls and types of network security. If the standard specs that we send out aren’t sufficient for getting you connected, then our specialist team will work with your IT team to find a solution.

100-day money back guarantee?
Our sensors work. So we’re confident that if you install them, you will have an effective solution.
100 days money back if you’re not satisfied removes the risk of outlying on a vape detection system
