Included with your Therma° order

Therma° includes temperature and humidity sensors, a 4G Therma° Hub, and the Therma° dashboard (accessible on mobile or desktop). 

The 4G hub relays the signal from the sensors to your dashboard and mobile app. Multiple sensors can be linked with a 4G Therma° Hub. For multi-unit operators, every store should have at least one dedicated Hub per location.

Placing your sensors

Place your Therma° sensors wherever you want to measure ambient temperature and humidity such as refrigerators, freezers, and coolers. Do not submerge sensors in water, above heat or fire, or in ziplock bags.

Therma’s sensors are battery-operated, and will continuously operate for up to a decade from a single battery. 

Setting up your hub

Your hub comes with two antennas. Screw each antenna into the back of your hub. Look for the labels on the back of the hub to identify where to screw each antenna. 

What does each antenna do?

The short, flat attenae enables 4G connectivity and enables your sensor to send data to your hub from anywhere, anytime.

The long, round antennae enables Long Range Radio or LoRa and unlocks seamless transmission between your hub and our suite of digital tools. 

Linking your sensors

Link Therma° sensors to your store location through an easy two-step process:

Create a location

  • To link your sensors to your software, first, create a location. Creating a location allows you to quickly identify which facility your sensor is installed and keeps your data organized. 

Next, add the sensor to the facility where it is located in one of two ways:

  • Use the QR scanner on the Android or iPhone mobile apps, located in the “add sensor” section to link your sensors.
  • Add sensors manually using the SN number located on the front of your sensor. 

Therma° sensors measure temperature and humidity every 10 minutes.

Activating your sensors

The final step in setting up Therma is activating the sensors using the “ACT” button on the bottom of your sensor. 

When to set up Therma° alerts

After you’ve set up your Therma° system, allow the sensors to collect temperature data for at least 2 days. Use the initial temperature data to make adjustments to your environmental controls before starting to set alerts. This will prevent you from receiving a large volume of alerts on your first day. 

When you’re ready to start setting up alerts, navigate to the ‘Alerts’ tab on your dashboard.
