How Does IoT Temperature And Humidity Monitoring System Work

IoT temperature and humidity monitoring system is completely automated. You install wireless Bluetooth IoT sensors in the zones where you need to monitor conditions. Sensors transfer data to the edge IoT gateway, where data are filtered, batched and sent to the cloud software or a local server. A cloud software processes the data and produces real time reports that you can view and download remotely from anywhere.

IoT temperature and humidity monitoring is a part of the QR Inventory software. Temperature and humidity logs are linked to the inventory locations and movement - meaning that you always know the historic conditions for each asset or inventory batch, not just for the zone where IoT sensor is installed. The QR Inventory systems checks if conditions in the zone go out of range for the assets or inventory currently in this zone, or if asset or inventory batch is moved to the zone where conditions are not suitable, and produces an instant alert.



Components Of The IoT Temperature And Humidity Monitoring System

Temperature and humidity monitoring system consists of three components: IoT sensors for measuring temperature and humidity conditions, Bluetooth IoT gateway for reading data from the sensors and sending them to the remote cloud server, and a cloud software that processes information and produces human-readable reports.

Bluetooth Temperature And Humidity Sensor

A bluetooth IoT sensor for temperature and humidity conditions monitoring is a wireless, easy to install device which is operated on the battery. Once you install the sensor and added it to the list of your IoT devices, the sensor starts sending temperature and humidity values to the IoT gateway at the time intervals specified by you.

The measured values are also logged on the sensor. If a connection between the IoT gateway and the sensor is interrupted for any reason the data are preserved and can be retrieved later.

When adding IoT sensor to the system you can specify the meaningful temperature and humidity step at which data should be logged, and configure temperature and humidity conditions for sending alerts.

Bluetooth IoT Gateway

A Bluetooth IoT gateway reads data from the connected temperature and humidity sensors, pre-processes, filters and batches data, and sends data to the cloud software for the storage and reporting. One IoT gateway can collect and process measurements from the multiple IoT sensors at the same time.

You can log into the gateway locally to configure the edge data processing rules for the BLE beacons and sensors, or (optionally) remotely via the QR Inventory software web dashboard.

An IoT gateway stores all values locally until the data are successfully sent to the cloud software. If internet connection is interrupted the data are not lost, and will be sent to the cloud when the connection is restored.

Cloud Inventory Software

The data from the Bluetooth IoT gateways are sent to the QR Inventory cloud software for processing and reporting. You can review the real time temperature and humidity logs at any time, from anywhere via the cloud software web dashboard. If you configured the alerts, you will receive an immediate e-mail notification if conditions go out of range.

You can configure alerts for the zones monitored by the BLE sensors, as well as for the assets and inventory groups. QR Inventory software knows where each asset or inventory item is located at any time. Therefore you not only get the temperature and humidity logs and alerts for the specific zones monitored by the IoT sensors, but also for all environmentally sensitive assets and inventory.

Use QR Inventory IoT temperature and humidity monitoring option to ensure that assets and inventory items are not moved or located in the area with the conditions that can be harmful. Always have proper temperature and humidity monitoring documentation available and easily accessible.

Why Use QR Inventory For The Temperature And Humidity Monitoring

Combine inventory management system with the IoT based temperature and humidity monitoring to get precise conditions for all assets and inventory batches regardless of their location and movement.

A QR Inventory software is a modern smart inventory management system that automates your inventory management tasks and gives you the option to remotely monitor assets and inventory conditions using IoT sensors and a gateway or a smartphone. Using a QR Inventory system, company employees can track assets and inventory in the warehouse and in the field in real time fast and error-free. QR Inventory provides a variety of tagging and scanning options to choose from - based on your workflow, needs and budget. You can use barcodes, QR codes, NFC or BLE tags to label assets and inventory. For the scanners you can use smartphones, Bluetooth barcode scanners, mobile computers, or automatically monitor assets with the BLE tags and a Bluetooth gateway. As a result, you always know where the assets are and how they have been used, inventory stock in all locations, inventory usage statistics and trends, and much more.

If you are dealing with the assets and inventory which are sensitive to the environmental conditions, QR Inventory software gives you an automatic temperature and humidity monitoring option with the network of IoT sensors and gateways. Unlike stand alone temperature and humidity monitoring systems, where you only get conditions for the zones, in the QR Inventory software you get temperature and humidity conditions for each asset and inventory batch.

A QR Inventory system knows the conditions in each zone monitored by the IoT sensors, and it also knows which assets and inventory are currently located in this zone. Different assets and inventory groups may have different temperature and humidity tolerance - and in the QR Inventory system you know exactly if a specific asset or inventory batch is exposed to the conditions outside of the acceptable threshold.

With QR Inventory you will be in control of the assets and inventory at all times, comply with the traceability requirements, have easily accessible documentation and ensure that assets and inventory are always stored at the optimal environmental conditions.

IoT Temperature And Humidity Monitoring: Business Use Cases

  

IoT Based Warehouse Temperature Humidity Monitoring

Use IoT sensors and gateways network to ensure warehouse inventory and assets are stored at the optimal environmental conditions.


IoT based warehouse temperature and humidity monitoring is a completely automated system that produces continuous temperature and humidity logs and alerts you on any deviation from the optimal environmental conditions. Without any manual labor involved you have digital documentation verifying that warehouse inventory was always stored at the correct temperature and humidity conditions. You can check temperature and humidity conditions remotely 24/7 from a computer or a mobile device. If temperature or humidity goes above or below a set threshold, you get an instant alert and correct the situation quickly, preventing assets and inventory damage or loss.

In the climate controlled warehouse that uses IoT technology a network of IoT sensors are continuously measuring temperature and humidity in the different warehouse zones, and transfer data to the cloud software via the gateway. One gateway can collect and transfer data from multiple IoT sensors. You have a complete control on the system configuration. You define how to filter data, how often to send data to the cloud, set temperature and humidity alert levels, and more.

Temperature controlled warehouses are integral if you store any temperature sensitive items - such as food, beverage, medicine, sensitive equipment, pharmaceuticals, etc. IoT climate control for the warehouse coupled with the inventory management system allows you to store items with different temperature and humidity requirements in one warehouse, and ensure that all products are stored at the right conditions. Inventory management system monitors the product location within the warehouse, and gives you an immediate alert if a product is moved to a zone with the damaging temperature or humidity conditions. If the conditions fluctuate, the system knows what products are located in each warehouse zone monitored by the IoT sensor, and checks that conditions are still good for these specific products - and sends you an alert otherwise.
