Wireless automated monitoring service for food industry

08 August 2016

Checkit has launched an automated monitoring solution aimed at the food industry, designed to replace the need for manual checks. 

Available as a subscription service, Checkit Automated Monitoring comprises Internet of Things-based smart sensors and a cloud-based control centre, providing a wireless solution for capturing precise temperature, humidity and door status data, with continuous readings sent to the cloud 24x7. 

By replacing manual checks, Checkit Automated Monitoring is said to enable food businesses of all sizes to operate safely, protect stock and comply with food safety regulations while boosting productivity and reducing costs. 

Continuous monitoring of hazard points such as freezers, fridges and chilled food areas is vital for business operations. Manual monitoring is costly, inefficient and prone to errors, and as readings are only taken at infrequent intervals, there is no real-time view of operations or ability to see problems developing between checks.
 
Checkit is said to require a labour saving of just two minutes a day to recoup the cost of a sensor. As well as reducing staff costs, it can also help food waste, as temperature and humidity conditions in food storage and production areas are constantly optimised. Continuous monitoring also enables heating and cooling systems to be enhanced to be more efficient to cut energy bills.
 
Through Checkit’s Control Centre dashboard, managers have real-time visibility of everything being monitored. Alerts are automatically triggered if sensor readings move outside set parameters. Drill down capabilities give more detailed reporting, which can be accessed from any device and exported instantly, speeding up FSMA, HACCP and customer compliance audits. 

 The system can be installed and up and running within hours, and is available in two subscription packages designed to suit all sizes of business. The sensors have an anti-microbial casing and can be installed and relocated anywhere, while the Checkit Control Centre has been designed with ease of use in mind for food businesses of all sizes and can be accessed remotely from any internet enabled device.
