Case Study: Devices for Food Services and Brewing 2020-03-18T22:34:55-06:00


Increase Efficiency while Minimizing Risk with Internet Connected Monitoring Devices



Ensure food quality, regulatory compliance, and protect your valuable inventory with 24/7 fully-automated temperature monitoring protection.

Proper refrigeration is vital for preserving the quality and safety of dairy, produce, meats, eggs, and other perishable food items.

Many facilities manually monitor refrigeration systems, but it’s impossible to manually monitor equipment 24 hours a day. Even periodic monitoring is difficult to sustain. It’s expensive, labor intensive, the readings may not be accurate, and monitoring efforts are often duplicated in order to meet overlapping regulatory requirements. Operational efficiency suffers as a result, increasing the risk for non-compliance.

See how Thomas Woodard of Lariat Lodge Brewing Company used monitoring devices to ensure a smooth launch of his newest store.

Examples of How Automated Measurements Improve Your Operation

The Challenge
A restaurant owner wanted to find a way to automate temperature monitoring for their kitchen refrigerator after the refrigerator air vent became blocked by bulky food items, causing the internal temperature to spike to an unsafe temperature. The kitchen staff didn’t notice the temperature change until the following morning, but by then the food had become unsafe for consumption. The restaurant had no choice but to throw away thousands of dollars worth of inventory.

The Solution
We installed sensors in each refrigeration unit to instantly and automatically record temperatures around the clock. Notifications were set to send instant, actionable alerts to the restaurant owner and designated kitchen staff if temperatures fall out of predetermined ranges at any time. Compliance reports were scheduled so the restaurant could prove regulatory compliance at all times.
