How it works
Our wireless temperature monitoring sensors are placed in the locations to be monitored (such as a refrigerator, cold storage room, etc.), and readings are sent wirelessly to a control station which logs data hourly to a cloud server. If an out-of-limits condition is observed (such as a high temperature alarm), the control station sends text message alarms immediately to connected mobile phones to alert users of the problem. Here is an example of how the system works once installed:
Install your control station at a central location and place your sensors in the locations you wish to monitor.
Turn on the control station, which will automatically locate and connect to your cellular network. Then enter the mobile number(s) you would like text message notifications to be sent to.
Enter the desired monitoring limits into the control station to establish what constitutes normal operation and what constitutes abnormal operation in order to trigger an alarm.
Your system’s data automatically begins logging to the Cellular Machines cloud server, which can be accessed from a computer, tablet, or mobile phone. Your kit will include unique login credentials for you, which you can update or manage as you wish.
Begin receiving optional daily messages to your phone that show normal operation, and alarm messages if your system detects a temperature outside of your set conditions.

Cellular Machines Case Histories
Main Street Farms
Greenhouses, nurseries, and other controlled environment agricultural operations and installations like Main Street Farms require consistent environmental conditions to maximize output, control quality, and protect valuable inventory. The Cellular Machines Temperature Monitoring Kit helps this business monitor the temperature of its primary greenhouse, which houses the company’s closed‐loop, hydroponic garden/tilapia farm.
Leonard Indendent School District
School districts must constantly maintain proper temperatures for food storages to ensure the safety of prepared meals served to their students. The Cellular Machines Temperature Monitoring System helped out the Leonard Independent School District by providing a wireless monitoring solution for the school's food storage in their district.
Midas Green Tech
Proper temperature monitoring in data centers and server rooms play a critical role in preventing large-scale damage to costly equipment and in the potential loss/compromise of customer's data. Midas Green Tech deployed the temperature monitoring system to continuously monitor and log their server room's temperature, power, UPS battery life, and humidity.
Tarrytown Expocare Pharmacy
Storage of pharmaceuticals, biological samples, and other assets in the medical or life sciences field is critical. Precise temperature monitoring of refrigerators, freezers, and warmers is vital to ensure patient safety and prevent the loss of inventory. With our temperature monitoring system Tarrytown Pharmacy is able to properly monitor their various refrigeration units to avoid loss of inventory, and with data logging to the cloud they are able to generate reports necessary for regulatory compliance.
Cellular Machines Testimonials
Triangle Ice has used Cellular Machines for more than five years. We use Anaren’s Temperature Monitoring devices in remote freezers where cable service is just too costly. We also use the Cellular Machines in our main facility to monitor numerous production areas. The easy-to-use web based monitoring feature has been particularly helpful in identifying and notifying us of potential issues. We have saved thousands of dollars in possible losses thanks to Cellular Machines. I strongly endorse this device to anyone invested in storing temperature sensitive products.
Pharmaceuticals are temperature-sensitive. We have four types of refrigerated storage boxes, including simple dorm-style holding fridges…high-capacity, medical grade fridges and single deep-freeze storage unit, and a vaccine fridge that holds about $40,000 of pharmaceuticals at any given time. The loss of the specified temperatures has three bad outcomes: first the financial loss of the contents and then second is the unwitting use of pharmaceuticals which have been exposed to out-of-range temperatures which could harm patients. We also know when city power is lost. We like the Cellular Machines monitors for three reasons: they communicate over the cell network, non-technical people can operate them, and the cloud server history is a wonderful reporting and compliance tool providing an automatic record of what’s been going on – especially on the weekends.
Food storage condition keeps us up at night. If a freezer fails and food gets too hot, we jeopardize student health. Our schools are empty on weekends, so we used to have someone come in on weekends and manually log the temperatures of six refrigerators and freezers. A refrigeration maintenance company recommended the Cellular Machines temperature monitor almost two years ago. For far less than we expected, we monitored all our food storage rooms. In the first month, we learned that a compressor was failing – that was impressive. Over the past two years, the Cellular Machines monitors have prevented at least $50,000 of food spoilage. When a text message alarm comes in from the Cellular Machines monitors, all of us read it.
High temperatures are the death of computer server rooms. If the air conditioning fails, our server room can reach 100oF in less than two hours. Once the room temperature passes 120oF, the servers will most likely have to be replaced because the internal circuits have exceeded the component limits. We use the Cellular Machine monitor as back up to our mineral oil-based server storage tanks which have an industrial controller with evaporator cooling units. The Cellular Machines monitors are the first line of defense. If we exceed server temperature one degree, the monitors text us immediately. Also, we know if city power goes down. Elegant product, simple and reliable.
Our Cellular Machines system has been great for several reasons. Keeping our greenhouse temperature within a specific range is very important to our fish and our vegetables. Getting an alert that we are a couple degrees to hot or cold means a ventilation fan or a heater is malfunctioning. Without fixing these issues right away we can stand to loose thousands of dollars in farm products. There has been several cold nights that I have been woken up by a text telling me a heater was broken!
