Restaurant Temperature Monitoring System

Protect Thousands of Dollars of Food Inventory with Swift Sensors

Most common restaurants have at least one walk-in cooler and one walk-in freezer.  The cost of food inventory being stored in those walk-ins is typically over $5,000.

When comparing the risk of losing this inventory to the price of our system, there are very clear-cut savings.

For example, the cost of our system is only $590 for all the equipment you need for monitoring 2 walk-ins.  You will also have Monitoring and Alert plan associated with each unit being monitored which is just $65/year/unit ($130 for both walk-ins).  Cancel anytime, no contracts required.

As you can see, our pricing is simple.  You have a one-time upfront cost for the hardware of $550 and then your yearly Monitoring and Alert plans which total only $130/year for complete and total monitoring coverage 24/7.

Swift Sensors is a small price to pay for protecting your food inventory and safeguarding the food being served to customers.

Common Measurements

Remote Monitoring for Restaurants and Food Services

Automate Temp Logs. Simplify Inspections. Streamline Operations.

One of the first things inspectors look for are temperature log history reports for your refrigeration and freezer units to ensure that your food supplies have been stored at safe temperatures. Relying on your busy staff to monitor temperatures and update logs is error-prone and inefficient. 

Automation is the key

With Swift Sensors remote sensor system and alerts, you have all of your historical data at your fingertips. Our built-in reporting tools automatically generate the logs required for your next inspection.

  • Local Health Inspections
  • Government Program Requirements (USDA, NSLP)
  • Hazard Analysis and Critical Food Safety Points (HACCP) plans

Restaurant owners have one of 3 common types  of restaurant temperature monitoring systems:

  • Nothing – Some restaurant owners are willing to take their chances and risk losing time, money, and customer trust from a major equipment failure and catastrophic inventory loss.
  • Employee-Based – Other restaurant owners will use employees to monitor equipment, log temperatures, and report on any issues they see in the walk-in cooler or freezer operation.
  • Wireless – Still other restaurant owners choose a wireless automated restaurant temperature monitoring system to remotely monitor temperatures and send alerts when issues start to appear.

Restaurant owners experience a number of benefits when they use an restaurant temperature monitoring system, including:

  • Be the First to Know – Rather than getting surprised with major problems in the morning or after a long weekend when equipment fails, you can get an immediate alert when your freezers or coolers show their first signs of trouble.  With an automated text, email, or phone call from the system, you know exactly when equipment is showing the signs of failure so you can act fast to save your inventory and get your cooler repaired.
  • Offload Busy Staff – It’s hard to hire and train reliable staff.  Rather than ask them to do the tedious work of  manually checking and logging temperatures throughout the day, automate the process with a restaurant temperature monitoring system.  Not only will your employees appreciate more time to focus on the customer, you will get more complete and more accurate temperature logs.
  • Reduce Your Risk – When you have thousands of dollars of inventory stored in a cooler or freezer, equipment failure is a huge business risk.  Not only do you lose the inventory, you also have to spend all your time getting things back in place – assessing the damage, clearing out the spoiled inventory, reordering and restocking replacements, modifying menus, or even closing until you are back up and running.  The financial risk is great, and the risk of alienating your loyal customers is even greater.  
  • Improve Quality – When food is stored at incorrect temperatures, the taste, freshness, and safety can be impacted.  With a restaurant temperature monitoring system, you not only know when equipment fails, you can also track its performance in general, and schedule maintenance to keep it operating properly and your food at its best.
  • Compliance with USDA Regulations – Many businesses are required to comply with safety regulations from the USDA.  Don’t leave it to chance – your temperature logs prove that you are in compliance when you have an automated restaurant temperature monitoring system in place.
  • Franchise Rules – For franchise owners, you may have safety and monitoring requirements that you must follow.  A restaurant temperature monitoring system allows you operate more efficiently and document your compliance at the same time.
  • Streamline Inspections – Many health inspectors ask for temperature logs right up front when they visit restaurants for inspection.  A complete and accurate report for all of your freezers and coolers can set the tone for your next inspection.  
  • Better Insights – When you have an automated restaurant temperature monitoring system, you’ll have all of your historical data available at your fingertips.  With this historical data, you will gain valuable insight into how you optimize your processes and predict when equipment may require maintenance.

An automated restaurant temperature monitoring system is comprised of the following components:

  • Sensors for measuring temperature, humidity as well as leak events, power consumption, open doors, and more.
  • A Gateway that communicates with each sensor and collects the measurement data periodically and transmits it to a central cloud location.  
  • Cloud Software where you can view the measurement data, set alarm levels, and define notifications to alert you or your employees when the measurement data starts to show signs of trouble. 

Swift Sensors offers multiple temperature sensors depending on the type of cooler/freezer and temperature range you need to measure, including:

A restaurant temperature monitoring system has three primary components with the following costs:

  • Sensors prices range from about $100 to $280 depending on the sensor type and range
  • Gateways cost $330
  • Monitoring Service is $65/year for each sensor
