Improving Cold Storage Processes With IoT

Posted by Indrajeet on September 4th, 2019

A Cold storage warehouse consists of temperature-sensitive perishable and non-perishable products that require easy to use monitoring system. It is essential to instrument cold storage trucks and warehouses with smart sensor-based industrial IoT development solutions to slow down the spoilage of food items. 

IoT, when combined with AI, can transform the way devices interact. The technology eliminates human intervention with autonomous capabilities. The application of IoT is now becoming common with the wireless temperature sensors and smart location gateways. An IoT monitoring system enables restaurant chains to improve food safety and ensure quality control with complete regulatory compliance. 

Steps for Using IoT Sensors in Cold Storage

Step 1: IoT devices/sensors are fixed inside chambers and to the products of a Cold Store. If in case the Goods are in Transit, these IoT devices/sensors keep a track of its location.

Step 2: IoT integrated mobile apps are developed to share every micro and major details or activities with the owner. 

Step 3: Acquired sensor values enable the owner or staff members to monitor their stock.   

Step4: When bizarre conditions are detected, an alert is sent to the cold store owners on their mobile devices or app. 

 Benefits of Implementing IoT Solutions for Cold Storage Facilities

Worker and Asset Safety: Smart IoT sensors update the cold storage owners in case of a system failure. It will enable them to detect risky scenarios in real-time so that immediate action is taken before a mishap. IoT maintains a detailed log of every user activity to enhance the security of the entire system.
