Easy to Install

Zeptive makes DIY installation easy - think of installing a residential WiFi enabled smoke detector. We include an installation template and the hardware you need to install your sensors on the wall or ceiling. The sensor comes with all the software and training material you need to get started along with complimentary training and phone support for the life of your devices from Zeptive’s team of chemical detection experts.

Low False Positive

Zeptive’s sensors contain multi-channel particle and chemical sensors to avoid false alarms. Our unique particle sensor categorizes 4 distinct sizes of particulate matter. The chemical sensor works together with the other sensors to characterize the environment, resulting in fewer nuisance and false alarms. Zeptive’s patented algorithms are the best in the industry drawing on 20 years of high-tech sensing experience. Combining sensor data provides extremely good differentiation between vaping and chemicals such as body sprays and hair sprays. Settings can also be customized to fit your unique environment.

WiFi & Ethernet Communication

Zeptive’s patented sensor provides True Wireless WiFi/Battery Power and Fully Wired Power Over Ethernet in one device providing unique installation options. OPTION 1: Fully Wireless WiFi with Two Rechargeable Batteries. Move whereever you have good WiFi. OPTION 2: Wired PoE - Power over Ethernet. Install cable and connect your devices. OPTION 3: Hybrid Fully Wireless WiFi with Two Rechargeable Batteries & Wired PoE - Power over Ethernet. A mix of Wireless and Wired devices offering maximum flexibility and control. Start as a Wireless device then convert to Wired at any time or start as a Wired device then convert to Wireless at any time. It only takes seconds to switch.

Instant Notifications

Alarm decisions are made locally at the device and instantly communicated to the cloud to be relayed to the people you choose. Use the Web Dashboard included with your purchase to easily set up text, email, and push notifications for your staff. Receive push notifications in the Zeptive Phone app included with your purchase or via text to your mobile phone or email.

Vandalism Resistant

We combat vandalism with several approaches: A tamper sensor is integrated in the system and alerts staff if anyone touches the system. Staff receive an e-mail/text to their accounts and push notifications through the Zeptive app when tampering events occur. There is an audible alarm, which can be turned on or off in the Zeptive Phone app, that will sound for 10 seconds at 80 decibels when someone tampers with the sensor. The tamper sensor is adjustable with three sensitivity settings so each device can be customized for your unique installation. All notifications are time-stamped so you can follow up by cross examining your camera system if someone tampers with a device. The hardened plastic case molded in flame-retardant UL94-V0 Polycarbonate/ABS plastic blend protects the electronics and sensors. Tamper resistant screws are used to secure the plastic case and battery door and are also provided for installation of the device on the wall or the ceiling. An Optional Wire Cage can be installed around the device to provide an outer protective shell.
