QUEZON CITY, Philippines
Configuring the sensor before deployment
- Aug. 18, 2019
-- The monitoring system is to check for the comfortability of the environment for diners, as well as help in managing the proper setting of the air conditioning units. AKCP LoRa™ Dual Temperature and Humidity Sensors (LBTH (https://www.akcp.com/
humidity/)) were installed in the dining area, with an L-DCIM (https://www.akcp.com/
dcim/) central management gateway collecting the sensor data and forwarding it to the head office.
LoRa™ technology (https://www.akcp.com/
system/) with low current battery-operated sensors allowed for easy installation, with no wires required. The sensors were situated in two areas of the restaurant dining area, with the minimum temperature set to 24 degrees and maximum 27 degrees before alerts would be generated.
AKCPro Server (https://www.akcp.com/
server/) central monitoring software was implemented to provide monitoring and alerts for the sensor data, with a geographical location on a world map, and drill down to individual restaurants. The main office for Ramcar would be able to monitor all their restaurants from a single user interface, with alerts, notifications, graphing and drill down mapping data.
Upon successful completion of the P.O.C, Ramcar plans to roll out the system to 200+ restaurants around the Philippines.
