Although temperature monitoring is easy to think of in the context of restaurant food safety, temperature controls are a crucial aspect of several others—including agriculture, healthcare, and industrial applications. For this blog series, we’ll discuss how temperature and other environmental monitoring can be applied in each of these industries, and how automated monitoring can benefit your business.
Ever heard of smart agriculture? As agricultural technologies continue to develop and expand in scope, we are just starting to enter an enormous industry shift in the application of data collection and analysis. In order to analyze data, you first have to have data available. Lightweight, Internet of Things (IoT) devices (like temperature sensors) are leading the way in making millions of new data points available in real-time, at an ideal price point. All this data sounds great, but how exactly can all this data be analyzed and applied to the agriculture industry to enhance crop yields, improve productivity, and optimize of resource utilization? Here’s a few ideas:
- Understand Critical Environmental Conditions Without Lifting a Finger
- Protect Controlled Growing Facilities from Unsatisfactory Conditions
- Improve Compliance and Save Time on Record Keeping
