Digital Fly Unveils New Anti-Bullying and Student Vaping Detection Smart Cloud Based Sensor and Alert System For Schools
Digital Fly new Fly Sense technology detects and alerts school staff when students are vaping, bullying or fighting
Hauppauge, NY; August 11, 2017 - Digital Fly, a nationally respected school safety products and technology developer, introduced today its latest innovation, Fly Sense, a new cloud-based “Internet Of Things” (IOT) anti-bullying and vaping detector/sensor that is the only product on the market to offer combined vaping chemical detection and decibel level monitoring specifically designed for schools. Fly Sense is a cloud-based platform that detects and sends alerts to school officials when bullying or vaping is taking place in bathrooms, isolated areas as well as classrooms and lunch rooms of schools. When the sensor detects decibel level anomalies caused by bullying or chemicals from vaping, it sends an immediate notification to one or many school officials’ computers or mobile devices.
The release of Fly Sense comes just days after New York State adopted legislation making vaping and the use of e-cigarettes illegal on public and private school property across the state.
According to both a recent U.S. Surgeon General's report and a survey from the New York State Department of Health e-cigarette use by high school students is rapidly rising.
The Fly Sense platform represents a revolutionary advancement in school safety. The platform consists of a front-end edge detection sensor called Fly Sensor with a backend logic processing server. Each Fly Sensor can work independently or in conjunction with a network of two or more Fly Sensors.
“Expanding on our extensive line of high tech school safety products allows us to make a real impact on issues relating to bullying, fighting and using vaping devices and e-cigarettes in schools. Fly Sense is designed specifically for the education market,” said Derek Peterson, CEO at Digital Fly. “Fly Sense is a unique product and approach which creates effective ways for schools to protect and ensure the safety of students.”
“We believe this product is a game changer for schools and falls directly in-line with the new law recently signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo which bans vaping and e-cigarettes in schools in New York State. Vaping and e-cigarette use is dangerous to the health of students and can be a gateway to the use of illegal drugs or tobacco smoking,” said Mike Richez, Executive Vice President at OSC World.
OSC World, the marketing and sales partner of Digital Fly, is available to provide information and arrange a demonstration of a Fly Sense sensor or Digital Fly’s social media awareness platform. For more information, visit www.digitalfly.net or call Mike Richez at (516) 247-5321.
