What is cold room monitoring?
Cold room monitoring is about using sensors to watch over the temperature, humidity and other parameters in a space where stable climate conditions are required, such as cold rooms, containers or other cold storage facilities.
In 2015 we launched the Crodeon Reporter. This simple wireless device logs the conditions of your choice using our reliable wired sensors. No technical experience required. Just mount the Reporter, plug the sensors and view your data. Done.
Who needs this?
Companies that make use of indoor climate monitoring technjonology are restaurants, laboratories, food companies, logistics companies and even farmers or fruit growers. Many of these have cold rooms or cold storage facilities that have to be monitored remotely.
Cold room monitoring is what a large part of our customers use the Reporter for, but we also help schools with ventilation or farmers protecting their livestock. Temperature is usually the most important parameter, but humidity or CO2 are often measured as well.
Sensordata is logged online in real-time so you can get a view of the current situation and also download the logs of how temperature has behaved over the past months or years.
The Reporter's built-in alarm feature lets you configure thresholds per sensor in order to receive a text, email or voice call when things go wrong. You can also set a certain delay, so you only get warned when the thresholds are exceeded continuously.
For critical applications, when you really have to receive these notifications, the Crodeon Dashboard let's you configure up to 4 people to be notified in sequence until one of you confirms the alarm.
Another service that is included with every Reporter is the monitored connection. We will notify you if something is wrong with your Reporter. This ensures you that your Reporter is always ready to warn you when things go wrong.
Can I install the hardware myself?
The mounting and startup of a Reporter takes only 5 minutes. When you receive the device, it has already been pre-configured for your situation. You only need to sign in to the Crodeon Dashboard and connect the sensors.
The Dashboard will allow you to activate the Reporter and configure settings such as the measurement interval and alarm thresholds in just a few clicks.
The Reporter is there to help you save time, not waste it. You as a customer should not worry about software, connectivity and hosting. This is why Crodeon makes sure that the startup and activation goes fast and smooth.
What does it cost?
Monitoring your cold rooms doesn't have to be expensive. Build your own quote on our website. All you need is a Reporter to get started, and one or more temperature sensors.
We charge a subscription of €15 per month per Reporter for hosting, connectivity and the monitored connection. You get unlimited notifications and user accounts so don't worry about unexpected costs.
