Bluvision’s Smart Cooler solution is a remote, real-time solution that provides significant data about and around commercial/operational coolers, refrigerators and vending machines. The solution comprises of BLE beacons with sensors that are placed in the units and are connected to Bluzone, our cloud solution, via a SDK on an app or through a Bluetooth to WiFi gateway, BluFi. The real advantage to using the Bluvision’s Smart Cooler solution is in its ease of installation. The ‘stick and go; installation requires the beacons to be stuck to a flat surface on the cooler, refrigerator or vending machine and the BluFi gateways can be plugged in to an A/C outlet. The same hardware infrastructure of the sensor beacons and BluFis can be used for:
- Asset Control – Alerts when the cooler is moved from its location, predictive analysis allows for scheduled maintenance thereby reducing downtime and enabling timely restocking
- Technical Diagnostics – Monitors motor & compressor health, and provides recorded and real-time temperature conditions
- Sales performance – Provides the ability to measure footfalls, dwell time analytics around cooler and restocking from tracking traffic to cooler and door opens
- Consumer Engagement – Engages consumers with POS campaigns using Bluvision’s CMS and beacons that reaches multiple users – both android and iOS simultaneously
Further, the solution also supports coolers, refrigerators and vending machines that are being refurbished or new ones that are going into the field. The data and insights can be accessed either through a mobile app accessed by the field personnel, or through our cloud solution, Bluzone.
