How do you protect your food inventory?

temperature monitoring and alerts for FOOD SERVICES

  • Sends out alerts when storage temperatures are too high, preventing loss and liability
  • Automatically creates permanent temperature logs for audit trail and troubleshooting refrigeration problems
  • Alerts can go to both staff and refrigeration service personnel

smart

  • Easy to install—wireless sensors are self-configuring and automatically communicate with servers
  • Easy to set up—just name the sensors and identify who should be notified when problems occur
  • Easy to operate—web-based setup and reporting with 15-minute training sessions available

simple

  • No local sensor control unit that can be hacked or that requires a "hole" in your firewall for remote access
  • All sensor data is encrypted during transmission to Coris servers and is permanently logged
  • All sensor logs are maintained on secure servers in secure data centers in the cloud

we monitor temps 24/7

Sensors that monitor temperature, humidity, and/or contact closure are installed in your freezers or refrigerators.

Each sensor is connected to a Coris Multiple Sensor Module (MSM).

Coris' encrypted wireless mesh network enables your MSMs to communicate with one another to reach a Gateway.  This allows one Gateway to support 35 Coris modules.

Once your Coris Gateway is connected to a router with an Ethernet cable, it automatically connects to Coris servers in the cloud.

Secure Coris servers record all data received from sensors—accessible anytime, anywhere.

a few features

alerts customized to your needs

A very powerful feature of Coris technology is its ability to notify people. The Coris server will send out messages to any number of people once specified conditions are met and a user-defined delay interval elapses.

 

The most commonly used alerts for refrigerators or freezers that hold temperature-sensitive goods are:

 • Temperature is above a user-defined threshold (as seen below)

 • Communications with the temperature sensor has been lost (often indicating power outage)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alerts can also be set up to monitor humidity, contact closure, or external factors (weather, price of electricity, demand response signals from utility).

 

Because all data tracked by Coris is available via the Internet, all usual means of communication are available to alert users of problems—including text message, email, automated phone call, and pager.

sensor names and organization

Similar to how file folders work on a PC, Coris Folders make it easy to organize large numbers of devices by location with simple “drag-and-drop” operation.

 

Coris Folders can contain all the devices in a particular department or all the devices in a particular location. There is no limit to the number of folders and subfolders you can use—allowing sophisticated organization by schemes such as by country, by region, by city, by building, by floor, by restaurant, etc.

sub-accounts allow you to delegate controls and access

This feature lets you designate which users get access to which devices. This can also allow access to devices without letting certain users change settings.

“Anyone who hasn’t had a freezer problem hasn’t been in the business very long.  Coris temp sensors let us know immediately when we have freezer problems.”

Coris in action

Boutique Cheese Shop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A boutique cheese shop uses Coris temperature sensors to monitor the display cases for all their cheeses. Alerts are sent out to the two owners if the temperatures drift outside of the acceptable ranges so they can move the cheeses to their main refrigerator while they wait for repairs.

Wine Storage Facility

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A wine storage facility has Coris temperature sensors to verify that the storage area maintains a constant 55 degree temperature. Alerts are sent out to the warehouse manager and to the building facilities staff if the temperature varies by more than 5 degrees from the target of 55 for more than 30 minutes (to account for raised temperatures during deliveries and shipments). Monthly temperature reports are sent to the wine distributors who use the warehouse to assure compliance with contractual storage requirements.

Private School

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A private school has plans to replace its very old walk in fridges and freezer, but wanted to make sure that the old units don’t fail before they are replaced. They serve three meals a day during the academic year, but not during school vacations—leaving the food in the walk-ins vulnerable while the kitchen staff is on vacation. Coris temperature sensors were installed in all three walk-ins with alerts going out to the facilities managers when the temperatures are elevated above safe levels.

FAQs

How close must MSMs be placed to my units?

The MSM comes with a 6-foot temperature sensor which can be upgraded to 75-feet.

Is there a limit to the number of units I can monitor?

No, you can add as many sensors as needed to monitor additional units.

What do I need to get started?

You will need an Internet connection. Coris will provide the Gateway Module and Multi-Sensor Modules (MSMs) along with their power adapters. Coris will also provide the temperature sensor that will be installed in the unit to be monitored.  Each MSM can monitor four temperature sensors, and each Gateway can support up to 35 MSMs!
