Telefónica Smart Cooler is an example how to enable existing things (e.g. a standard cooler) for IoT in a cost-effective and secure way. Its cloud platform analyses both existing and additional sensor data almost in real-time. Companies can benefit from various effects: increased operational efficiency through optimized maintenance processes, superior productivity as well as dynamic marketing insights based on real-time reports.

Companies can benefit from various effects: increased operational efficiency through optimized maintenance processes, superior productivity as well as dynamic marketing insights based on real-time reports. One example is the Telefonica Smart Cooler.

Smart Cooler is a retrofit solution for standard coolers that enables specifically trading companies to increase their efficiency for energy, operations and sales. The solution consists of a retrofit hardware that is connected to the existing electric module of the cooler to access sensor data and take control. In addition, the cooler is enhanced with additional sensors to measure open & close of the door as well as the vicinity around it (to track people passing by). The hardware comes with Telefonica Global SIM managed connectivity preinstalled to guarantee secure & reliable network coverage. With the unique cloud-based IoT Device Management Platform any cooler can be transformed into a Smart Cooler with the following benefits:

  • Remote Monitoring: Location, Temperature (in-/outside), Humidity, Light, Energy efficiency incl. Push-Alerts (e.g. over/underrun of pre-defined KPIs)
  • Remote Control: Power-Switch (on/off), Temperature, Light (on/off)
  • Measurement of promotions/marketing activities through real-time Reports that compare the events & duration of opening the door vs. people passing by the cooler (conversion)

To offer this E2E solution Telefónica connects ist state-of-the-art IoT Platform SMART M2M (Telefónica Managed Connectivity) with a leading Devicemanagement Platform incl. access to an existing development partner ecosystem.
