As an entry level product where tracking is not the main objective, we have deployed our LoRa solution to monitor assets and report on measurements during day-to-day operations. The solution consists of our LoRa gateway and node as discussed earlier in the document and we measure aspects as follows:
- Temperature (Fridge, Freezer, Oil, Oven, Heating trays, etc.)
- Door open/close
- Compressor/Motor Run-time
- Mixers (Soft serve Ice-cream machines, Bakeries etc.)
Data on event is communicated to our platform on-event basis to enable a greater management and product quality control. Our platform will alert our customers on an exception basis and will allow for preventative maintenance to be scheduled should something fall outside of normal operating conditions.
This is solution is currently being trialed with Fast Food companies in South Africa and we have a 100-unit installation planned for 9 April in Tanzania.
