Comprehensive environmental monitoring solutions combine advanced
WiFi sensors with a remote Cloud-based data logging service.
As a result, companies can gain a competitive advantage by running
wireless data logging solutions to reduce the amount of product being
wasted due to the increased accuracy and frequent updates of the environmental data from the produce’s storage location.
Suitable for a wide variety of areas within commercial and industrial
sectors, modern environmental WiFi sensors can be used in logistics and
storage, food and drink, site management, farming and horticulture and
within the retail industry. Specific use cases cover the distribution and
storage of chilled food and drink products, monitoring of critical manufacturing processes, meeting temperature compliance regulations and
logging data in greenhouses for optimum seed germination and product
There are many benefits to using a remote data solution in a supply
chain. Namely, there is no limit to what can be stored remotely. When
data is stored off-site, it is being housed in the Cloud. It eliminates the
need of a company’s own IT staff to update and upgrade software or
hardware, and as all data is being stored and managed on an external
Cloud platform, this leads to cost savings across the board.
But there are some considerations to bear in mind — reliability of the
devices, how they will be powered, data security and accessibility of the
data once you have captured it. Therefore, it is absolutely essential to
work with a trusted supplier who can guarantee the reliability of the data.
This is crucial as modern WiFi sensors are designed to run for long periods with little or no human supervision.
In With the New
Manufacturers go to great lengths to ensure that devices can be
depended on in these applications by combining advanced WiFi sensors
with a remote Cloud-based data logging service.
Although it’s still early days for the use of advanced Cloud computing
technology in the food and drinks industry, the benefits of improving crucial elements of the supply chain management are becoming increasingly
apparent. We’re only now starting to see what Cloud-based environmental monitoring solutions bring to the food industry and the future for this
technology is looking bright. ◆
While logging data as accurately as
possible, it is now equally important
to have unrestricted insight into the
temperature of the produce at each stage.
