Since most pharmaceutical products are temperature-sensitive, they require specific storage conditions. Even in specially designed warehouses with the latest air conditioning, temperature zones can differ a couple of degrees.
To monitor the exact temperature and humidity conditions of chemicals stored in a warehouse, a pharmaceutical manufacturer was looking for a solution to easily track the temperature and humidity within their storage facility, including cold storage cells and ambient storage zones, in a highly automated way.
The SmartHub and SmartBeacon system fit their demand perfectly. SmartHubs were installed on central places around the warehouse to cover the most comprehensive BLE range possible. The SmartBeacons were placed at different strategic locations, thus tracking the most relevant areas such as the nearest and furthest points from the air conditioning to the shelves. Furthermore, various SmartBeacons got installed in the cold storage cells. The SmartBeacons are transferring all relevant information in real-time to the SmartHubs and from there to the Tec4Cloud.
Since the SmartBeacons are configurable, the temperature ranges for triggering an alert can be set depending on the sensitivity of the chemicals stored. This way, an overall temperature and warning map can be installed at the warehouse always to capture the correct storage and handling parameters of all goods in real-time.
In case of a warning, an automated text message or email is sent to inform the warehouse staff.
