Food Services

Checking temperatures to protect your customers and achieve regulatory compliance has never been easier. The FDA Food Modernization Act (FMA) requirements can be challenging. Fast track FMA compliance with Monnit's award-winning sensors.

Effortlessly monitor temperature and automatically create HACCP-compliant temperature logs. Facilitating ERES compliance, our sensors meet CFR21 part 11 requirements.

Get real-time alerts for any threats—such as temps rising, doors left open, or abnormal motor activity. Know your inventory is safe from struggling equipment and human error with Monnit Wireless Sensors for remote restaurant monitoring.

How Monnit Helps

Our wireless Monnit sensors will work 24/7 to keep track of your equipment without the need of human presence, allowing you to focus on other tasks that are more important.

Crucial information is stored via cloud and can be viewed on your PC, Mobile or Tablet with ease. If a sensor exceeds a threshold set by you, the relevant people can receive alerts by email, text or call, enabling them to supervise the equipment at any place, at any time.

Always Alerted

Easily set alerts for the thresholds you care about. Simple online configuration allows you to choose the conditions that trigger alerts and which team members should receive them.

You can have peace of mind wherever you have cell service—receive alerts via text, email or call. Never be blindsided by restaurant emergencies again.

Instant Analysis

iMonnit is a powerful, all-inclusive dashboard for each of your devices. Securely view readings from all your sensors online or via mobile app.

You can even compare the readings for multiple restaurants or multiple areas of the same location. Basic monitoring and mobile apps are included (Android and iOS).


Not knowing what’s happening at your restaurant can be costly. So much can go wrong when things get busy or you have to step away. An overnight cooler failure can exceed $18,000 in spoilage and lost business.

Spot issues immediately—avoid disruptions and damage to your reputation. See everything at once with our industry-leading remote monitoring sensors.

Step out of the kitchen with confidence knowing our sensors will alert you (or your staff) if anything requires attention while you're away.


Many solutions have a large initial cost or offer a limited sensor line—meaning restaurant managers must maintain multiple systems.

Grow your system as your operation grows. Monnit’s affordable and scalable remote monitoring solutions have your restaurant covered with 70+ IoT sensors.

System setup takes less than 15 minutes—quickly see the value Monnit sensors provide your organization. After determining ROI, you can scale seasonally, as you expand, or as other unique needs surface.


Early warning signs of cooler failure are difficult to detect. Sometimes equipment doesn't even power on when it's supposed to. This challenge is compounded when the many demands on your time prevent you from constantly checking vital equipment.

Customize alerts for the things you care about. Decide which unusual conditions trigger a text, email, or call alert.

Monnit IoT sensors can even identify problems that would be hard to identify in person.


Time adds up when you are manually checking in on restaurant operations and equipment.

Whether you manage one restaurant or 10, you have other priorities and there aren’t enough hours in the day to physically handle restaurant monitoring. Giving up personal time isn’t a sustainable option either.

Automate with Monnit restaurant monitoring systems. Use the time you free up for more important things—like life (truly restful sleep is back on the menu).


Worried about your facilities while you are on a trip? Or maybe you’re across town at another facility.

Leverage flexible dashboards. Keep an eye on equipment, personnel, and important environmental conditions online—whenever, wherever.

Convenient Android and iOS apps are also included to provide insights when you are away from your computer. Know more. Worry less.


Some IoT solutions charge monthly sensor usage fees or prevent you from using your data in other software.

Own your sensors & your data. Use your data where you need it—iMonnit dashboards work well for most customers, but you can export data to any program. Web hooks and an API are provided to automate data flow.

With unlimited data possibilities, it's easy to get valuable insights for scheduling maintenance, staffing adequately, and adjusting procedures.
