NTT DOCOMO Launches IoT-driven Temperature-monitoring in USA

NTT DOCOMO, INC. announced the immediate launch of an IoT-driven temperature- and humidity-monitoring service for industrial refrigerators and freezers in the United States. Customers can use smartphones or PCs to monitor the temperature and humidity of their equipment, get alerts in the event of any abnormality, receive monthly reports on temperature and humidity trends, and change settings based on such reports. The subscription service is available from $99 per month in the US.
The service has been developed in collaboration with myDevices, an IoT solutions company based in Los Angeles. Temperature and humidity data collected at grocery stores and restaurants are available in the cloud in real time for reliable temperature management, including automation of processes such as visual confirmations by employees, and reduced food wastage.
The system uses the LoRaWAN specification, a low-power, wide area networking protocol, which enables sensors to run for more than five years without replacement.

Refrigeration temperature management is an important issue for grocery stores and restaurants, because equipment breakdowns can lead directly to food spoilage. Despite the high demand for industrial refrigerators with remote monitoring functionality, such equipment is expensive and replacement cycles can be long, so many refrigerators without such functionality are operating in the U.S. market.
Going forward, DOCOMO and DOCOMO USA expect to continue collaborating with cutting-edge U.S. companies to introduce additional IoT-driven solutions that help customers raise their productivity and create new value.
