The company developed the service in collaboration with IoT solutions company myDevices (Los Angeles, CA), which provides IoT technology based on the LoRa wireless data communication technology for low-power, extra-long-range transmissions. Users of the new service can use smartphones or PCs to monitor the temperature and humidity of their equipment, get alerts in the event of any abnormality, receive monthly reports on temperature and humidity trends, and change settings based on such reports.

The service is designed to address refrigeration temperature management – an important issue for grocery stores and restaurants, as equipment breakdowns can lead directly to food spoilage. Despite the high demand for industrial refrigerators with remote monitoring functionality, says DOCOMO, such equipment is expensive and replacement cycles can be long, so many refrigerators without such functionality are operating in the U.S. market.

The new service has been launched under DOCOMO’s “Globiot” global IoT initiative, which was announced in July to provide global connectivity and operational support and consulting to Japanese enterprises that have global IoT operations. Going forward, says the company, it expects to continue collaborating with cutting-edge U.S. companies to introduce additional IoT solutions that help customers raise their productivity and create new value.

The subscription service is available now from $99 per month.
