The CDC Vaccines for Children (VFC) program recently made its vaccine storage requirements more stringent. Now all refrigerators must be equipped with continuous temperature monitoring devices that data log high and low temperatures and clearly display the current temperature on the outside of the refrigerator. In addition, vaccine providers must use certified and calibrated monitoring devices. (View full requirements for CDC vaccine temperature monitoring here.)
For many businesses, having personnel on-premise 24 hours a day to keep an eye on the facility is not an option. That's why an alarm auto dialer is an affordable remote monitoring solution. You get peace of mind knowing you will be alerted around the clock if conditions change at your facility that could lead to a disaster.
One of the biggest challenges of monitoring multiple water and wastewater facilities is maintaining real-time visibility of critical conditions at all sites. In order to provide safe drinking water and protect the environment from contaminants, water and wastewater treatment plants have to ensure continuous monitoring of conditions like pump status and tank level.
To keep your plants alive and thriving, it's essential to continually monitor greenhouse temperatures. Most greenhouse plants only grow properly within a certain temperature range. If plants are exposed to extreme temperatures for an extended period of time, they can suffer permanent damage. Plants lose water quickly in extreme heat. And if the heaters aren’t working on cold winter nights, frost can damage greenhouse plants.
When the power goes out at your facility, threatening important inventory, data and property, how long does it take you to find out? If your business requires immediate notification of a power failure, consider installing a remote monitoring system. A remote monitoring system provides continuous monitoring of all environmental conditions, including temperature, humidity, CO2 levels, and water leaks. But what many people don’t realize is that it can also function as a power outage monitoring device.
When you’re responsible for monitoring critical server equipment, issues can't wait for your attention. And these issues go beyond ensuring the health of the data itself. You need a system that can notify you immediately about high room temperatures, power outages, water damage and other issues so that you can take fast, corrective action.
Maintaining a proper temperature is essential to protecting perishable food items stored in refrigerators or freezers. Food that isn’t stored properly can spoil or become contaminated. Sixty million tons of food is wasted in North America every year, with 22 percent lost after production and before consumption. Monitoring food storage temperatures can help you minimize food waste and ensure food safety.
Many facilities rely on their employees to manually monitor food storage temperatures and critical conditions. However, this method of monitoring is not only time-consuming, but expensive. Not to mention, your..
If you are responsible for inventory stored in commercial refrigerators and freezers, temperature monitoring, immediate alarm notification and secure data logging are essential. Whether you are storing food products or pharmaceuticals, these units can contain assets worth hundreds or thousands of dollars. And holding these products at the wrong temperatures can compromise quality and lead to serious consequences like food-borne illnesses or unviable medications.
