Food Storage Monitoring

Automate Your Temperature Monitoring

In order to meet strict industry guidelines, many shops, supermarkets and restaurants still carry out manual temperature checks using a temperature probe and clipboard. This process can be time-consuming for workers on the shop floor, and stressful for managers, who have to produce regular reports that prove their due diligence in maintaining the safety of food products.

Our range of Wi-Fi-connected temperature devices can automate the whole process and form part of your HACCP solution, reducing the labour and stress of manual temperature checking.

Set-Up Couldn't Be Easier

  • Purchase our Wi-Fi-connected devices below
  • Connect them to the EasyLog Cloud
  • Position the devices to monitor your fridges, freezers and other food storage environments
  • Benefit from automated food storage temperature monitoring (we also offer product options to monitor humidity if relevant to your specific application)

Reduce Waste With Customisable Alert Limits

Using the EasyLog Cloud (accessible online 24/7 from anywhere in the world), the user can configure customisable temperature (and humidity - if applicable) limits for each of their devices.

For example, a convenience store might purchase two EL-MOTE-TP products - one for a fridge and one for a freezer. They can then configure different alert limits for each device so that, if the temperature in either environment becomes dangerous for the products stored inside, email alerts are sent to an email address of their choice. Fast, corrective action can then be taken to save damage to the food products and reduce waste.

EasyLog Cloud also offers alarm delay and hold options, so that temperature excursions in regular use (temporarily opening a fridge door, for instance) do not result in an alarm.

Easy Reporting 24/7 Online Anywhere in the World

Accessible online via a web browser or mobile application, the EasyLog Cloud can provide detailed reports of data collected from all of your data loggers. These reports show data logging records ready for inspection in compliance with HACCP guidelines.

Food Storage Applications

 
Shops, Supermarkets & Retailers

The most common problem in retail establishments is the need to monitor chilled and frozen goods that are open to the public. Our TP and DTP products are ideal for this because they use external thermistor probes to measure temperature. This means the user doesn't need to leave the device in the fridge or freezer itself, just a discreet probe will need to be in the actual environment.

All of our devices include alarm delay options to allow for temperature excursion in general use, such as fridge doors being temporarily opened. This ensures that shops and supermarkets will not experience endless alert notifications whenever a customer opens the door to a chilled product cabinet.

 
Cafés & Restaurants

Cafés & restaurants have a variety of chilled and ambient storage environments that can be both open to the public and isolated for stockroom storage. Our data loggers can form a network via the EasyLog Cloud, enabling establishments to monitor each different evironment in one integrated system. No longer will staff have to manually trawl the backroom stock chillers collecting and recording temperature readings.

If you intend to monitor containers such as fridges or freezers, we recommend that you purchase a TP or DTP product so that the device body does not need to go in the measured environment: an external thermistor probe is used to measure the temperature. However, if the environment is ambient, such as a wine cellar, a T product will work effectively.

To extend your HACCP solution we also offer portable temperature recorders. Our EL-Enviropad product has functions for spot-checking and checklists, perfect for establishments that perform different stages of food preparation.

 
Food Producers/Manufacturers & Wholesalers

Food production can deal with chilled, frozen and ambient foods. Our data loggers can form one flexible solution to monitor all of your food goods, in each different temperature range, on one Cloud-based system.

If you intend to monitor containers such as fridges or freezers, we recommend that you purchase a TP or DTP product so that the device body does not need to go in the measured environment: an external thermistor probe is used to measure the temperature. However, if the environment is ambient, such as a cheese cave, a T product will work effectively.

Food manufacturers and wholesalers can also be responsible for the transport of food products. Our range of Cold Chain products are not Wi-Fi-connected, which makes them perfect for food transport applications.
