You just stocked your wine cooler with very expensive bottles of wine. The next day the cooler loses power…and you have no idea. Now the clock is ticking before lots of money and good wine goes to waste. What if you could get a text on your phone the instant your wine cooler stopped working? AT&T has done just that with the IoT Temperature Monitor, developed by Craig Lee at the AT&T Foundry for Internet of Things in Plano, TX. This technology can keep track of temperatures in small or large walk-in coolers – whether in supermarkets, restaurants, or at home. It can also report problems wirelessly over AT&T’s LTE network.
For example, if your cooler breaks, IoT Temperature Monitor will alert you. Alerts will also go out to your electrician and a dry ice company. You’ll save time and the hassle of reaching out to these companies directly, especially when you’re away. In the meantime, you’ll receive text message alerts as the temperature of the cooler rises again.
This project was created using AT&T Flow Designer, an Internet of Things software developer tool built at the AT&T Foundry.
