Remote environmental monitoring with 3,000 sensors during global pandemic


Thanks to a scalable, trusted, and reliable continuous environmental monitoring solution from ELPRO, a leading university research hospital system immediately empowered its staff to work remotely at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Research facilities were damaged due to a severe natural disaster. The extensive power outages and flooding lead the large research university to establish an emergency resilience program.


In the spring of 2020, the emergency resilience program was put to the test with the outbreak of COVID-19 and the global pandemic. 95% of research personnel were no longer allowed to work in their labs. Audible and visual alarms on site, including the displays on the outside of refrigerators and freezers, were suddenly rendered “worthless.” Staff needed a remote monitoring system for the sensors, data, and analysis.


In this case study, you will learn how a large university hospital

  • established remote temperature control data and monitoring of almost 3,000 sensors, at 100+ sites;

  • provided access to the monitoring software for more than 300 users in the shortest possible time; and

  • saved millions of dollars' worth of annual losses by monitoring its valuable products.
