Facility/Field Monitoring

The Xsense® Facility Monitoring module is designed for monitoring facilities and fixed locations. Typical monitored environments:

Fixed Locations

  • fields,
  • groves, and
  • greenhouses,

Industrial Facilities

  • pack houses,
  • distribution centers,
  • warehouses,
  • storage areas, and
  • laboratories

Commercial Facilities

  • small and large supermarkets,
  • drug stores,
  • distribution centers, and
  • retailers.

How It Works

  • Xsense® wireless HiTags™ and Gateways, or Xsense® cellular real-time loggers are mounted in the location to be monitored.
  • Readings are automatically collected and reported.
  • Rules governing the environment being monitored, such as temperature thresholds, are defined in Xsense® Cloud.
  • Readings and results are visible in Xsense® Cloud.
  • Alerts are automated sent to interested parties.

What it Solves

  • Monitoring of temperature and relative humidity of fixed locations
  • Monitoring and management of product conditioning processes
    (like pre-cooling, ripening)
  • Monitoring of third-party facilities
  • Allocation of hot/cold spots in storage facilities

For facility monitoring, one may choose to utilize HiTag™ Dataloggers, cellular real-time dataloggers, or both.


  • Measuring environment and product temperatures and relative humidity
  • Wireless technology
  • Plug–and-play implementation
  • Real-time breach alerts and notifications
  • Automatic data upload, download, and backup
  • Xsense® system portal capabilities
  • Easy access to online data, 24/7
  • Minimal wiring and effort required for installation
  • No calibration process required: Dataloggers are factory-calibrated. Old dataloggers are replaced with factory-calibrated dataloggers
  • Monitoring of own and third-party facilities even when electrical mains fail (with equipment connected to cellular networks)
  • Permission-based information access.
  • Actionable information and benchmarking reports – by room/site/product


  • Ensure quality of storage
  • Improved operational efficiency
  • Lower wastage of product
  • More energy-efficient management of cooling equipment
  • Optimal control of environmental conditions can reduce energy consumption by as much as 20%
  • Reduced weight-loss or product attributable to poor control humidity monitoring
  • Reduced damage to packaging attributable to high humidity
  • Reduced risk to quality and product safety
  • Optimal shelf-life extension owing to optimization of shelf temperatures
  • Identification of hot and cold spots in the storage facilities
  • Identification of problem areas
