Cold storage of fresh flowers is the number one priority in flower preservation. Throughout the cold chain from grower to trader and florist, flowers must be kept chilled. For this, you can opt for transporting cut flowers with remote temperature monitoring, which guarantees the quality of the cut flowers transported.

Remote monitoring of a flower cold room

Specialised cold storage of cut flowers can keep flowers cold, from tulips, to daffodils, roses, or even tropical flowers such as orchids. But who checks whether the cold room is still working properly? Especially in flower refrigeration, consistent cooling with sufficient humidity is essential for longevity and flowering at the right time.

This humidity of 80-90% slows down the wilting process and prevents dehydration. However, excessive humidity is undesirable; you will notice this when condensation droplets form on the stems and leaves. The low temperature slows down the internal metabolism in the plants and slows down flower ageing.

A remote humidity and temperature monitoring system with alarm notifications keeps a close eye on whether your flowers are still kept in a suitable indoor climate. The system then sends an SMS or voice call to your phone, for example. This alerts you immediately if the conditions in your flower cold room deviate too much and you can take immediate action.

Temperature monitoring for flower transport

Temperature monitoring and temperature logging are equally important when transporting cut flowers to guarantee their quality. As a transporter, you can offer this service to reassure your customers, as a customer you can request this service from a transporter to ensure your goods arrive at their destination in pristine condition.

Reporter: easy temperature monitoring for flower refrigeration

At Crodeon, we are committed to straightforward remote monitoring solutions, which is why we created Reporter. Reporter is a user-friendly plug & play monitoring module that you can easily install yourself.

Cold storage of fresh flowers requires control and monitoring of temperature and humidity, for this you simply connect 1-4 temperature and humidity sensors to the module. All data is streamed live to the cloud (Crodeon Dashboard). On the Dashboard, you can view your live data 24/7, or download historical data via an Excel export. Alarm thresholds and settings can also be changed via the Dashboard, allowing you to fully customise Reporter for your needs and keep your flowers at the right temperature.

Reporter is compatible with grid power, DIN rail connection, and its own small solar panel. Measurement data is sent over the GSM network using cellular data and Reporter's built-in SIM card. Reporter therefore is an autonomous and mobile system which is extremely suitable for flower transport monitoring.


Getting started with your own temperature monitoring for cut flowers
