ComplianceMate Introduces Food Safety Equipment that uses LoRaWAN Technology
The maker of ComplianceMate Sensor Smart Kitchens system, CM Systems LLC, teamed up with Laird Technologies Inc. to create a new family of remote, wireless temperature sensors.
The new LoRa-enabled temperature equipment represents a new generation of futuristic, Internet of Things-enabled temperature sensing equipment available to restaurants and foodservice operations.
ComplianceMate uses LoRa to build wireless sensor networks that can penetrate the heavy metal and insulation present in a commercial kitchen, while additionally boosting battery efficiency with sensors that can last for years on an off-the-shelf battery. LoRa can also transmit over vastly greater ranges than Bluetooth, so it’s a perfect fit in environments where cold-holding storage equipment may be located at some distance from the rest of the kitchen. The LoRa technology is lower cost, more durable, and produces a significantly more reliable signal even in difficult conditions, said CM.
The new sensors are at the heart of the ComplianceMate Sensor Smart Kitchen systems, which was selected as IoT Innovator of the Year at the 2018 IoT/WT Innovation World Cup in the Retail category.
