Everyone has different needs when it comes to cold chain, whether you're storing product for months at a time, in transit, or only moments before it hits your customers' hands.
Sensors collect the data and transmit it to a Gateway, which pushes the data to the ConnectedFresh platform over the internet. The Gateway is a performance beast - it can be used to connect 500+ sensors at once, given those sensors are within range. For sensors that are out of range (i.e. different parts of a stadium or venue, multiple restaurants or facilities, or a solution in transit), an additional gateway may be needed.
Typically, one sensor is needed per environment. For example, if you are looking to outfit 5 coolers at one location with temperature monitoring sensors, you would need one Gateway and 5 sensors, each in a separate cooler. For large environments or additional functions (i.e. door open/close sensor, water sensor), more sensors may be needed. IT Infrastructure Note: If your network if monitored or secured by an IT organization, you may need to request them to ``open a port`` to allow the Gateway to transmit your sensor data over the internet. Alternatively, a Cellular Gateway with cellular signal coverage can circumvent these requirements and transmit sensor data directly to the ConnectedFresh platform via the cellular provider.
