REAL-TIME MONITORING SOLUTIONS FOR THE GLOBAL FOOD INDUSTRY
We supply affordable technology that automatically monitors the performance & efficiency of any type of equipment incl. fridges, freezers, vendors, chillers, hot-holding areas, water filters, compressors & all sorts of drinks dispensing equipment. Our sensors then send and store data in The Cloud so that you can view it in one place, in real time. Simple. We're small & flexible, so are very happy to create unique & specific solutions for whatever you need.
Why do you need us?
Pressures across foodservice are increasing - the inevitable Brexit impact on employment, rising food costs & wage bills, and the introduction of Earned Recognition by the Food Standards Agency. Our systems can help relieve some of this pressure, help automate a large part of your HACCP process, show proactive compliance and help improve relationships with your local Food Safety Team.
One system, many benefits
Save time on the critical but time-consuming HACCP temperature or equipment maintenance checks
Total peace of mind via real-time alerts when something’s not right
A single system for all your telemetry - whatever the manufacturer - with equipment MOT and diagnosis
Log in and check your data reports in one place - with downloadable reports and long-term record storage
Sensors that can monitor and track almost anything and be retro-fitted wirelessly to any system, with a battery life measured in years
Low upfront costs for your business - based on our rental model
A step towards Earned Recognition
Our forthcoming FSA study shows that adopting technology like ours can make a difference to how an EHO views your business. Their introduction of Earned Recognition aims to reduce the burden for compliant businesses. Once achieved, ER status should reduce the amount of EHO visits & checks you’ll need. We’ve taken a huge step in showing that the ability to capture & store important HACCP data digitally, & allowing the relevant authority to check that data in a user-friendly manner, can be an important step towards ER status.
Let us show you how automating your regular manual checks can save you a significant amount of time , money & regulatory hassle.
There are a number of sensors on the market, but only ours have been through the rigour of a Food Standards Agency Feasibility Study. Earlier this year, we tested our sensors in various restaurant & Street Food locations across 3 different Local Authorities and gave the FSA and the local Food Safety Officers access to all of the data. You can read the full study here but the FSA are happy that we have
"demonstrated the value of using a digital system as an alternative to paper based systems, for the purposes of regulated assurance of food safety."
Can your sensor supplier say that?
How does it work?
You brief us on items to be monitored, the performance parameters and how often the data is required.
The sensors monitor every few seconds and transmit data at your chosen intervals via the base station. No host WiFi is needed.
The data is sent via a secure cloud server to a central server to which only you have access.
The data is displayed via a simple custom dashboard - or sent directly just to your data management system. Specific reports and alerts can be created for different business functions.
Our sensors: options & technical information
Our battery-powered SIGFOX sensors simply drop into your fridges or freezers and transmit using a low-powered radio signal. Very robust and virtually bullet-proof. Data is sent securely to a portal that only you have access to. The sensors can be programmed to transmit temperature data as often as you need, up to every hour. No wiring, no manual downloads, no linking into your WiFi – just instant data & alerts from sensors with a battery life of 5yrs+. They are the perfect solution for mobile street traders, as they will work virtually anywhere.
If you need data more often than every hour, then we also offer a solution using a SIM-based gateway that simply plugs into mains power.
Slightly higher-spec sensors report up to every 40secs to the gateway which then transmits the data via a 3G mobile phone signal to the same portal.
Once again, no wiring, no manual downloads, no linking into your WiFi – just even more regular data uploads & alerts from sensors with a battery life of 5yrs+.
If it can be measured, we can almost certainly monitor it.
However, some data collection – flow through a water filter for instance – requires a bit more installation. Luckily we have years of expertise in this area. The transmission technology & sensors are exactly the same though.
We’re happy to create bespoke
solutions for whatever it is you need, so give us a call.
