Meet FRANC: The Future of Smart Wine Storage Monitoring Has Arrived
FRANC is the only way to remotely monitor the temperature and humidity of your prized possessions - all you need is a Wi-Fi connection and a smartphone to ensure your important items are kept at their optimum.
Monitor your Wine Collection and keep it at it's best!
You monitor your home with security systems. You monitor your finances via your bank account. You monitor your health with regular medical check-ups. So why shouldn’t you monitor some of your other prized possessions, like your wine collection?
Your wine collection needs to be stored correctly to ensure it is kept at its optimum, regardless of whether you are a wine enthusiast or a business owner in the hospitality industry. You may also have important items that need to be stored in a regulated environment to ensure they remain protected and preserved. Enter FRANC, the world’s first cloud monitored temperature and humidity sensor that is designed for a multitude of uses.
Got Wi-Fi? You can start monitoring now!
FRANC does not need much to keep a watchful eye over your storage space. All it takes is Wi-Fi connection and a smartphone for FRANC to notify you of the temperature and humidity levels of your storage area, wherever you may be. FRANC uses Wi-Fi to connect to the cloud portal, where you can set temperature and humidity targets that are monitored within a fixed range. You will be alerted when the temperature and humidity levels of your storage space fall outside this fixed range via email, push notifications or SMS.
Small, effective and portable
FRANC can be used in multiple locations to effectively monitor temperature and humidity. You can install your FRANC in a wine fridge, cellar or alternative wine storage location, such as a storage room, under the stairs or cupboard. It can also be used in restaurants and cafes to ensure minimum refrigerator temperature levels are complying with Food Safety standards, while businesses can use FRANC to remotely monitor climate-controlled storage.
FRANC watches over your valued items when you can’t by monitoring the temperature and humidity levels of your storage space from anywhere in the world.
