Ronkonkoma, New York, Sept. 11, 2023 — Soter Technologies (Soter), a leading provider of innovative environmental sensor and software technologies, today announced it has signed a partnership agreement with Araya Solutions, a Dubai-based organization that provides advanced technologies to enterprises and organizations. Through this relationship, Araya will provide Soter’s FlySense™ 286 product line to schools throughout the UAE, Middle East, and North Africa. Soter’s vape detection systems are currently deployed in 25 countries, and the company is recognized as a global leader in the development of privacy-aware detection and alerting solutions.

“As e-cigarette usage continues to rise across the Middle East, schools are seeking innovative and reliable solutions to mitigate its impact on students,”

Soter’s FlySense technology has earned a reputation as a superior solution for its immediate impact and flexible network connectivity that enables coverage across campuses without requiring expensive infrastructure changes. We are excited to partner with a market leader that consistently demonstrates its commitment to improving student and faculty health and wellness through highly reliable real-time monitoring.

Aditya Behal, Director of operations at Araya Solutions.

Araya Solutions has launched to share the benefits of its expanded portfolio and the revolutionary features of FlySense technology to keep schools in the region healthy and safe.

Soter’s FlySense 286 sensors detect the chemical signature of emissions from vape pens, and automatically alerts appropriate personnel within the school. The sensors also monitor ambient noise levels without invading privacy, sending automated alerts when noise patterns change to indicate potential conflicts. FlySense devices do not have any microphone or recording capability, ensuring privacy. In addition, FlySense sensors are easily networked through any combination of wired ethernet, Wi-Fi, cellular 4G/LTE, LoRaWAN, and other wireless networks. The FlySense platform provides a simple dashboard enabling quick configuration and management of alerts and reporting for an entire school build, campus, or district.

“We are excited to join forces with Araya Solutions to help schools across the Middle East and North Africa substantially reduce vaping activity and maintain a healthy, positive environment for students, faculty, and staff.

Araya recognizes the perils of vaping and the immediate need to provide impactful technology through proactive monitoring. We look forward to joining their efforts in keeping students safe and healthy.”

Derek Peterson, Soter’s Chief executive officer
