IoT solution aims at improving food safety, operational costs
The new PAR IoT solution is offered as an advanced cloud-based system that enables 24/7 remote monitoring of key capital investments with near real-time alerting for temperature failures and power disruptions. System components consist of various sensors that collect crucial data, gateways to transfer data to cloud servers, and a web portal for system setup, reporting, and alerting for action when specific programmable states exist.
The solution is designed to ensure that critical temperatures are regularly captured and monitored in kitchens, serving areas, storage, and holding areas. PAR IoT is part of the company’s SureCheck Enterprise mobile Food Safety and Task Management solution supporting Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) food safety programs and employee-assigned tasks.
Key features of PAR IoT include:
- Commercial grade sensors for unique customer applications
- Up to 100 wireless sensors with one PAR IoT Gateway
- Ability to send notifications when the sensors are out of compliance or power is disrupted
- PAR IoT Portal provides access to sensor activities with reports
- Ability to monitor system from anywhere via Web and/or mobile apps (IOS and Android)
“Food service organizations are looking for ways to maximize food safety efficiency and assist in managing operational costs,” says Dr. Donald H. Foley, PAR Technology Corporation President & CEO. “PAR IoT was built to achieve this by allowing real-time monitoring and alerting when important devices/equipment are out of compliance.”
