The following will help you get an overview of the steps that we go through in collecting the information needed to prepare for an installation. First the amount of hardware is estimated (more on that process below) and then a new Configuration form is filled out - this gives us the details on what account to create and hardware to be added to it. Then the account is created and hardware gets added.
You are welcome to put together whatever hardware you want for your deployment. Below you will find some of our recommendations based on our experiences.
Note for Low-Boy Refrigerators: We currently do not recommend the Dragino sensor in these units.
We recommend one sensor in each unit being monitored.
If it is a combo unit, one sensor in each unit.
Room temperature monitoring: we don’t have a specific number based on square footage, but common sense rules apply: one sensor for each room you want to measure with option of additional sensors for large rooms.
For general and room monitoring, we recommend at least one gateway to ensure coverage for all sensors in range. Additional gateways can be deployed to ensure redundancy and coverage can be found in our Best practices article.
One per kitchen area within each building.
