Why our customers choose SafetyCulture Sensors

Easy to get started

Our self-installation guide makes it easy for you to install the hardware and setup simple reporting and alerting via mobile – without having to pay for professional services.

Cost effective

A small monthly fee covers the cost of connecting sensors to the SafetyCulture platform, making them a cost-effective solution compared to manual checks.


Our sensors are durable, have strong signals over long distances, and can penetrate concrete floors, cool room walls, and most other obstacles.

I received an SMS alert late one Saturday night saying that the temperature in our cold storage was rising. If we had only found out about it when we arrived on Monday, we would have had to throw out everything in the cold room. That one little message saved us tens of thousands of dollars.

FAQs about Sensor Monitoring System

A food safety monitoring system enables users to easily demonstrate their food safety tracking efforts through accurate temperature readings automatically stored in a single, user-friendly platform. Proactive food monitoring is critical as it empowers teams to take preventive measures before noncompliance occurs, track resolutions or improvement of food safety hazard controls, and maintain high-quality standards.

Monitoring helps prevent foodborne illnesses by tracking critical parameters, such as temperature, which can impact the growth of harmful bacteria. Utilizing food safety checklists and food safety monitoring systems further elevates the quality of food as they enable businesses to maintain proper food storage conditions, identify issues proactively, and implement corrective actions to ensure the safety of food products.

The key components of a food safety monitoring system may include temperature sensors, data loggers, digital thermometers, wireless monitoring devices, software or applications for data analysis and reporting, and alert systems.

Yes, food safety monitoring systems can track other parameters besides temperature. Depending on the system, it can be capable of monitoring parameters such as humidity, pH levels, airflow, and sanitation practices. A comprehensive food safety monitoring system can also include the capacity to act as a HACCP Monitoring System, Refrigeration Temperature Monitoring System, and Hot and Cold Temperature Logger System.

Food safety monitoring procedures typically involve processes such as, physical inspections to identify hazards, temperature monitoring to ensure proper storage and cooking temperatures, microbiological testing to detect harmful microorganisms, and the implementation of HACCP principles to control critical points in the food production process.

Food safety monitoring becomes easier with SafetyCulture Sensors because you can access live temperature readings and historical information in a beautifully-designed dashboard. The traceability of your data allows you to make the most effective decisions, making compliance management effortless. Rolling out a fully functional food safety system can be accomplished in three easy steps: 

  1. Mount the SafetyCulture Sensor that captures temperature readings;
  2. Install the SafetyCulture Gateway that connects sensors data to your SafetyCulture account; 
  3. Set up parameters for alerts and actions. 

Once you’ve connected your sensors or local weather data to SafetyCulture, you can continuously monitor and maintain your conditions without lifting a finger. Tell us what range conditions need to stay in, and we’ll alert you any time that they go outside this range. From there, you can quickly set up a corrective action within SafetyCulture, assign it to the right person, and keep track of it until it’s closed. You’ll also have a complete historical log of data, in case you ever need to check that conditions were met during a certain period, or want to track trends in your conditions.

Only if you want them to. As the admin, you can control which sensors get added, what alerts are set up, and who else can make these changes.

Both devices have an operating range of -40C to +80C  (-40F to +176F). If you are monitoring outside these temperatures, the standard fridge and freezer sensor has the option for an additional probe which will boost the operating range to -55C to +125C (-67F to +257F). Outside of these temperatures we would not recommend deploying these devices, please contact us to discuss your use case in more detail.

Yes, all your data is stored from the moment you start taking readings. This data is easily downloaded as a csv to be shared with third-parties, regulators or internal stakeholders

We’re working hard to support as many types of sensors as possible! We want to make the most of any data that is important to you. If you’ve already got an internet-connected sensor solution installed and want to bring the data into SafetyCulture, let’s have a chat. No promises, but we’ll do our best to make it happen.

It depends. If you’ve already got sensors and you just want the data to feed into SafetyCulture, then there’s no added cost! We only charge for any hardware that you buy directly from us, and the ongoing costs associated with running them. See our SafetyCulture sensors page to learn more about the hardware solutions we offer.
