Ensuring Food Safety with Temperature and Humidity Sensors

Use LoRaWAN® Temperature & Humidity Sensors in refrigerators
and freezers for their unmatched performance and ease of deployment.



In the restaurant industry, transporting, storing, and keeping food supplies at the appropriate temperature is essential to creating a great restaurant experience for its customers. It is critical to monitor the temperature and humidity of refrigerators and freezers to ensure supplies are kept at a safe temperatures to ensure food quality, prevent illness, minimize food waste due to spoilage, maintain compliance with HACCP and avoid potential litigation.
Dan owns a chain of Quick Serve Restaurants (QSRs) and understands that to create a thriving business, he needs to both offer delicious food as well as create unwavering trust and quality for his valued customers. 


Previously, Dan had to track temperatures manually using a clipboard and relied on employees to track and document freezer and refrigerator conditions. This was poorly completed due to inconsistent data tracking, high employee turnover, and competing employee priorities. This opened Dan up to potential fines for non-compliant tracking and increased expense due to food spoilage.


To solve this challenge, Dan reviewed restaurant management software options and partnered with an industry leader who installs and manages MultiTech LoRaWAN® Temperature & Humidity Sensors into its refrigerators and freezers for their unmatched performance and ease of deployment.
