Cold room monitoring for HVAC companies

Malfunctioning cold rooms, refrigerators and freezers bring a lot of trouble into your client's kitchen or cold storage. So they ask you "wouldn't there be a way to monitor our storage?". One way to effectively solve this issue is cold room monitoring.

Your planning is filled to the brim with new projects and interventions, and finding skilled new staff is difficult. You're done with unnecessary complexity, which is why you appreciate plug & play hardware. Mount it to the wall, drill a hole, connect the sensor, done.

What if we told you that cold room monitoring really can be that easy?

Let us introduce you to: Reporter®

How does Crodeon’s remote temperature monitoring work?

At Crodeon we built Reporter, a user-friendly sensor module that is perfect for cold storage temperature monitoring. Temperature monitoring for cold rooms works through continuous temperature measuring that creates an automatic temperature log.

  • Temperature (and humidity) sensors
  • Data is being transmitted to the cloud (Crodeon Dashboard)
  • Excel export function for easy data extraction
  • Detailed temperature log for HACCP compliance purposes
  • Alarm notifications to alert about temperature deviations
  • Quick & Easy ⏱

    Slash your installation time with easy Plug & Play sensor connecting.

  • Customisable 🧩️

    Mix & Match whatever sensors your client needs: all sensors are compatible.

  • Quick interventions 🚨

    Remotely keep an eye on your client's storage to help them better & faster.

  • Intuitive technology 💡

    The user-friendly and intuitive design can be installed by anyone.

  • Client in control 🎚️

    Reduce support time by letting your clients stay in control of their project.

  • Online data 📈

    Forget custom software installation: all data is streamed to the cloud.

Three simple steps

Set up your temperature ranges

Crodeon's cold room temperature monitoring system is compatible with a wide range of temperatures for you to monitor a cold storage as you please.

In the Crodeon Dashboard you can set your desired temperature range and when you want to receive an alarm notification if this temperature deviates too much.

The temperature sensors come precalibrated but a manual offset can be set to fit your needs.

Access your data where and how you want

The Crodeon Dashboard is accessible through the web browser of your choice, on your pc, phone or tablet. With your phone in hand, you or your client can change settings on the fly, look at live or historic measurements, and prove that food safety regulations are being met.

Reporter also offers a rest API that allows you to directly insert Reporter’s measurements into personal software and the like.

Get alerts how you want them

When Reporter detects temperature deviations it will send you an alarm notification in real time. You can choose to receive these through a voice call, text message on your phone, or an email on your internet-connected device of choice.

This alarm feature for cold storage temperature monitoring is built-in in every Reporter and is fully customisable to your client's needs.

Frequently asked questions

How long does it take to install a Reporter?

The mounting and startup of a Reporter takes only a few minutes. The system is optimized for easy use by HVAC companies that have no experience with remote monitoring.

You only need to sign in to the Crodeon Dashboard and connect the sensors. The Dashboard will allow you to activate your Reporter with one click in order to start measuring. There you also have the ability to configure settings such as the measurement interval and alarm thresholds.

Our technology is designed to help you save time. Time is your most precious asset as a technical installation company.

How do you measure temperature in a cold room?

Temperature sensors are used for measuring and monitoring the temperature in a cold room. When you choose to use a digital sensor with an internet connection you can remotely follow up on the measurements. Digital sensors also allow you to enable automatic temperature logging.

Which equipment is used to monitor the temperature in a cold storage?

To monitor the temperature in a cold storage a limited amount of equipment is needed: a temperature sensor and a sensor module that interprets the data measured by the sensor.

What is cold system 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.

What is the temperature monitoring system for cold storage?

Reporter by Crodeon is a good example of a temperature monitoring system for cold storage. The sensor module is compatible with a wide array of sensors like temperature, relative humidity, CO2, but also a limit switch (open door detection) and a relay output module.

How do I monitor storage temperature?

You can monitor storage temperature by installing a temperature sensor connected to a sensor module for remote monitoring. Such a sensor module is Reporter.
