Smoker Detection in Residential Buildings

Sensor manufacturer FreshAir has launched an innovative smoking and marijuana detection system for apartment buildings, public housing complexes and other high-occupancy residential settings.

 

The FreshAir1 Smoking Detection System is also being marketed at building owners and operators with enforceable no-smoking policies, and as a solution for protecting infrastructure investments, protecting residents from unwanted exposure to smoking, and avoiding potential conflict.

 

Unlike typical smoke detectors which use light or radiation to detect general particles (dust, smoke, steam, etc.), FreshAir sensors are capable of detecting specific molecules in tobacco smoke and marijuana smoke. What’s more, the molecularly imprinted polymer that forms the sensor resets following smoking detection, thus enabling continued monitoring without additional upkeep.

 

Widely deployed in apartment and public housing complexes, the devices use a patented technology to detect and prove smoking in unauthorized areas. These tamper-proof devices and cloud-based monitoring platform are designed to prevent typical efforts to defeat detection, helping to protect no-smoking areas in real time.

 

Installation is facilitated by their compatibility with standard (U.S. "Type B") outlets which can be secured with tamper-proof screws. The WiFi-enabled detection devices connect to building networks to communicate 24/7 with FreshAir's monitoring platform. Each device in a FreshAir1 system is capable of monitoring up to 500 square feet of open space.

 

When smoking is detected in a monitored space, FreshAir sends an immediate alert to users via email, computer desktop, and/or mobile phone push notification. Smoking alerts come with timestamped reports of the incident in the monitored space, providing the scientific proof needed to enforce no-smoking policies. FreshAir’s Mobile App and online portal allow facilities teams to access alert history, stay updated on device information, and log additional evidence of smoking to be archived in the account’s alert history.
