Real-Time Temperature Monitoring: How Video Surveillance Can Save You Money

We understand that a high quality Video Surveillance Solution is a significant but necessary investment for your organization. Our goal is to maximize this investment to work for your business.


It’s the applications in which you use the Solution and how you apply the information you gain from it that can add to your bottom line. Here’s an example of how the integration between video surveillance and critical data – in this case, real-time temperature monitoring – can have on your business.



Refrigeration Trouble: A Restaurant Owner’s Nightmare

One of your restaurant managers walks into the restaurant early one morning to begin preparations to open. He walks over to the main refrigeration unit and sees a puddle of water. Filled with dread, he checks the thermometer. It reads 55 degrees.


All of the product inside is ruined, and he cannot open his restaurant until he gets a new shipment tomorrow morning. There’s nothing he can do to speed up the shipment. All of a sudden, an entire day’s worth of business and revenue are lost.


What if he had known the night before that the closing staff left the refrigeration door open? He would have had enough time to act – which would have prevented a financial loss.



How Real-Time Temperature Monitoring Could Have Saved the Day

Problems like this are inevitable. Many times it’s human error. Sometimes it’s an intentional act. Sometimes the system just fails. Whatever the cause, having the information you need to act quickly can save you money in the long run –including an entire day’s worth of business.


In this case, adding real-time temperature monitoring to your restaurant’s refrigeration unit would have been the difference between a quick fix and lost revenue. And, by having video surveillance tied in to the data, he would have known which employee was responsible.


Here at iTech Digital, we can monitor the temperatures for you. If there is a significant variation in temperature or if your system fails, our solution will contact you immediately with the video and temperature data. We give you all the information you’ll need to take action in one shot, so you can take a quick look and decide how to act.


Yes, integrating data with surveillance is an investment. But it can be far more expensive not to have them.
