How can these temperature monitoring failures be avoided in the future? By using a wireless, battery-operated temperature monitoring solution that is reliable, easy to install and maintain.
Remote, Wireless & Battery-Operated
- No down time: No risk of failure during power outages or failures
- Easy to install and maintain: No complex wiring and the ability to leverage existing Wi-Fi networks. Ongoing maintenance and management is centralized in one location.
- System security: Only the temperature tags performing the readings are present, so tampering with temperature parameters would not be possible (parameters and software applications can be centralized in a secure location).
Having tags that can leverage both Wi-Fi AND other RF bands is extremely valuable. If the Wi-Fi network were to ever go down or experience any other type of communication outage, the tags could still communicate with the application using an alternative RF signal.
Other key features to look for
Notification Methodologies: A variety of means for notifying the user of a refrigerator or freezer problem such as e-mail, text, pager, flashing light, siren, etc.
Alarm Protocols Integration: Ability to integrate your established alarm protocols with your temperature monitoring system.
NIST-Certification: Depending on requirements, NIST-Certification may also be a key consideration.
