Sentry Temperature Monitoring System

A HACCP Certified 24 / 7 temperature monitoring solution making sure all your compliance reporting requirements are taken care of.

Innovative

The Sentry Temperature Monitoring System provides remote temperature monitoring and regulatory compliance solutions to businesses involved in the food supply chain, from farm gate to plate.

Money Saving

The Sentry Temperature Monitoring System provides detailed management reports to assist businesses with the efficient operation of their storage devices, providing savings in operating costs and prevention of stock loss.

Easy Installation

Installation of the Sentry Temperature Monitoring System is quick and easy. The temperature sensors are simply paired to the Collector‚ unit and put into place. Full signal level functions can be detected on both the temperature sensor and the Collector unit.

How the Sentry Temperature Monitoring System Works

HACCP certified, the Sentry Temperature Monitoring System utilises wireless digital temperature sensing devices that are accurate to 0.5oC. A powerful inbuilt transmitter provides extended range allowing the devices to be used on large and heavily built sites where signal strength can be sometimes weakened. With an IP67 rating (IEC Standard 60529), the temperature sensors are impervious to ingress of dust and water and are suitable for areas subject to regular hosing down for cleaning purposes. Wired versions of the temperature sensing devices are also available to the same IEC specifications.

 

The digital temperature sensors send data wirelessly to a Collector unit that stores the information and forwards it via 3G-telephony to an AFSTC cloud-based server where it is constantly monitored and alerts and reports are generated. The Collector unit is also rated to IP67 and has an easy-to-read display for instantaneous data readings of all linked temperature sensing devices.

Reporting

While compliance and more detailed operational reports are automatically generated and sent daily via email, users can access the reporting system through a portal on the Sentry Temperature Monitoring website for history and real time information.

System Fault Alerts

The Sentry Temperature Monitoring System has inbuilt system diagnostics to alert users of system faults.

  • The system recognises if a temperature sensor has malfunctioned and will provide an alert.
  • The system monitors battery charge and will provide timely alerts for battery replacement prior to full discharge.
  • The system monitors wireless signal strength of the temperature sensors and provides alerts when signal strength is weak.
  • The system monitors 3G signal strength and provides alerts when a prolonged outage occurs. In the meantime the Collector unit will continue to store data and will forward it to the server when the 3G network is back online.
  • The system will detect when there is a power outage affecting the Collector unit and will provide an alert. A back-up battery will provide power for operation in the event of a power outage.

Benefits of Sentry Temperature Monitoring System

Keeping food safe to prevent food poisoning is critical for a food business. To minimise the risk of such an event, all businesses in the food supply chain must comply with the relevant Food Standards and Compliance Codes.

  • The Sentry Temperature Monitoring System provides 24/7 real-time monitoring of temperatures and immediately alerts users of discrepancies from set temperature parameters, allowing a timely response to take corrective action and preserve valuable stock.
  • The Sentry Temperature Monitoring System automatically generates daily compliance reports via email providing accurate data and peace of mind that compliance reporting requirements are met, even on days when the business is closed.
  • The Sentry Temperature Monitoring System provides detailed management reports to assist businesses with the efficient operation of their storage devices, providing significant savings in operating costs.
