The College of William and Mary

Williamsburg, VA, USA

The College of William and Mary is the second-oldest institution of higher education in the nation. They have provided an amazing environment for their students and have put their trust in IoT in a Box to help keep their students and staff safe. 

The Challenge

Throughout The College of William and Mary campus there are many refrigeration units that require constant monitoring in the dining areas. The university has encountered past refrigeration outages that resulted in a massive loss and food-borne illnesses. Routine monitoring of temperatures in the refrigeration units is vital to the safety of the foods provided on this campus. Logging temperatures throughout the entire campus has proven to be tedious and difficult with the size of the college, thus also making the logging process costly and inefficient. 

The solution

We provide a system that cannot be beat by competitors that use WiFi based devices because we can provide a larger coverage range with our cellular activation devices. Our sensors and solution take only minutes to install and have operating, allowing the university to start monitoring their temperatures instantly without having to halt operations.

We also provide SMS text message and email notifications to the university if an issue were to come up, such as a fluctuation in temperature past the preset levels. Moreover, compliance reports are also generated to ensure The College of William and Mary is able to prove compliance to regulating agencies upon demand.
