Digi Honeycomb probe for automated food temperature monitoring

DIGI HONEYCOMB HCprobe

Digi Honeycomb HCprobes are an integral part of the Digi Honeycomb automated food temperature monitoring system. The handheld wireless probe sends instant temperature readings to your Bluetooth-enabled tablet or phone to measure and record temperatures in hot and cold holding environments.

HCprobes are portable and work anywhere you need immediate temperature data. Measurements are taken in seconds and displayed in the Digi Honeycomb app, eliminating the time, labor and effort to manually collect and log data the old-fashioned way with paper and pencil.

Digi Honeycomb sensor for automated food temperature monitoring

DIGI HONEYCOMB HCtemp SENSORS

Digi Honeycomb HCtemp wireless temperature sensors are easy to use and part of the complete Digi Honeycomb automated food temperature monitoring solution. Temperature data is collected, viewed and managed through the Digi Honeycomb app. HCtemp Sensors have an operating range of -20° C to 60° C (-4° F to 140° F), with a communication range of 300 feet. The sensors come active when shipped and temperatures are captured and logged as soon as the companion Digi Honeycomb HCgateway is activated and the two devices automatically pair up.

Digi Honeycomb collects temperature data 24/7, with customized alerts when temperatures fall out of range to protect your inventory when refrigerators and walk-in freezers suffer an outage. Additional sensing options, such as humidity and vibration, can help ensure the integrity of your equipment to suit all your in-store cold chain monitoring needs.

HCtemp Sensors are NIST certified and are enclosed in an NSF grade plastic enclosure to ensure durability and to maintain monitoring accuracy in food handling environments. The sensors use Bluetooth® 4.0 Low Energy technology to broadcast real-time data to HCgateways to be stored and processed.

Digi Honeycomb gateway for automated food temperature monitoring

DIGI HONEYCOMB HCgateway

Digi Honeycomb HCgateway is the central hub of the automated food temperature monitoring system. Once the temperature reading is confirmed, the recorded data is logged and sent to the Wi-Fi HCgateway that processes and saves it to the Cloud for easy, up-to-the-minute compliance reporting and long-term storage.

As soon as the HCgateway is powered up it will automatically pair with all the HCsensors within range. Temperature data is reported every ten minutes and is securely transmitted to the Digi Honeycomb web-based temperature monitoring app.

Digi Honeycomb App

DIGI HONEYCOMB APP

The Digi Honeycomb mobile and desktop temperature monitoring and food management app receives temperature readings from the HCtemp sensors via the Wi-Fi connected HCgateway and from HCprobes via Bluetooth. The app automatically stores data for easy access to compliance logs and provides viewable trends in the collected data for better monitoring insights.

When food temperatures fall out of range, for any reason, the app sends out automated real-time alerts to key user handheld devices so that they can take immediate corrective action. In the event of a power outage, the HCgateway continues to collect rolling data from the sensors and logs it into the Cloud where it can be readily accessed by employees for both spoilage assessment and compliance reporting.

Temperature data is accessed via the Digi Honeycomb desktop or mobile app and belongs entirely to the customer – stored securely, backed-up regularly, and not shared with or sold to third parties in any way.
