Monitoring, a legal constraint
XamaX has 6 canteens containing both refrigerators and freezers to store food. The law requires them to monitor and report on their temperature daily. The facilities may not be used for weeks or months in a row during the offseason. However, they need to continue collecting and reporting on the temperature of the units daily and manually in order to meet legal requirements. Besides being legally mandatory, it does not provide any useful information for the company. Imagine the freezer or refrigerator is out of order due to a power outage. By the time you collect the data, the temperature may well be back to normal, whereas the food could have deteriorated, and you would not even know it. But if you happen to see a problem with the temperature, you will have to hurry and fix the unit quickly and try to save the goods.
Live monitoring, alerting and anticipation
We installed wireless temperature monitoring that relies on battery instead of wire. Even in case of a power outage, we can still monitor what happens within the unit. We also collect data every fifteen minutes instead of once a day. This allows us to provide the team with alerting in case of emergency. They can anticipate any problem and react right away. This can save goods and automatically satisfy the legal requirement of monitoring.
