BOSTON, MA (WBZ-AM) -- Smoke detectors can't tell if someone is vaping, so in High School bathrooms across the country, students have been vaping with impunity. But now, that is about to change.
School districts have begun purchasing vape detectors from a Long Island company called Soter Technology.
CEO Derick Peterson tells WBZ-AM that the device immediately notifies a principal through text or email if somebody is vaping. "The immediate notification is very important because the kids will vape in-between classed or at the beginning of school, and then they leave the scene," Peterson explained.
