Asset Monitoring for Many Industries

The HiQ eSystems® Remote-Monitoring and Reporting Systems provide safety directors, owners, operations directors, and others with confidence and peace of mind in knowing their assets are protected. Moreover, your customers will be ensured of product safety, consistency, and a superior overall experience.


Hitachi facilitates human interaction with nature in ways that won’t negatively impact the environment by following an approach known as the Internet of Living Things. This concept applies digital technologies to every segment of the food-production supply chain to improve environmental and economic sustainability.

Case Study: Happy Cow Creamery, Pelzer, South Carolina

Hitachi and the Internet of Living Things have powered a more efficient, easier-to-manage process of producing milk for Happy Cow Creamery. "Having the Hitachi systems in place really helps us prevent loss. It also allows you to see if there's a potential problem." (Tom Trantham III, Owner & Farmer, Happy Cow Creamery)


Food contamination claims are not only expensive but potentially devastating to a restaurant’s reputation and brand. While no one expects to be the subject of a contamination claim, everyone in the restaurant industry must monitor and document the environment of each individual perishable package in transit to the consumer. The cost, if neglected, could be the very existence of the organization you’ve worked so hard to build.

Testimonial: Great Champion BBQ, Atlanta, Georgia

“Any given day, Hitachi is monitoring all of my business really from the cold side to the hot side—everything that’s in my smoker at night to everything that’s in my walk-in cooler during the day and at night. With having HiQ eSystems as a part of our daily system, we can check it and monitor it, and it keeps us in check. I would rate the dependability a 10 out of 10.” (Robert Owens, Owner of G.C. BBQ)

Testimonial: Porterhouse Grill, Athens, Georgia

Andy Urell, owner of Porterhouse Grill in Athens, Georgia, tells us why he loves his HiQ Esystems remote-monitoring system, and how it saved thousands of dollars in perishable assets with its instant text notifications and constant monitoring.

Testimonial: Sysco Test Kitchen, Columbia, South Carolina

Russell Kerman, corporate chef at Sysco, Columbia, SC, operates a test kitchen where Sysco introduces various food services to new items, not only food items, but also technology items. The Hitachi HiQ eSystems remote-monitoring systems are used throughout his facility to help keep temperatures within the safe range.


Busy venues host conferences, weddings, and special events seven days a week, 52 weeks a year, requiring stocked refrigerators with food inventories worth thousands of dollars. HiQ eSystems environmental monitoring systems help caterers avoid food hazards, inconvenienced customers, and the potential loss of the caterer’s reputation. HiQ eSystems automatically monitors food assets to ensure they are stored in optimum conditions.

Use Case: Epting Events & Design, Athens, Georgia (During The Masters 2016)

Epting rented a local high school cafeteria during the Masters 2016 and served as a hub kitchen for the entire event crew at Epting. From this kitchen, Epting provided food to at least twenty hospitality suites that served the Masters directly. Hitachi’s installation crew set up the temperature monitoring system in the kitchen and three trailers, connected with a cell phone gateway, and provided Epting an ability to successfully monitor its perishable assets from a home office in Athens, GA throughout the event.

Cold-Chain Transportation

Uninterrupted Cold-Chain Temperature Monitoring

Are you in the dark when it comes to how your assets are being handled? Get a higher level of food-safety intelligence and transparency into the environment of your goods in house, en route or on location with our remote temperature and humidity monitoring systems.

Our $160 Billion Cold-chain Problem

With our newsfeeds consistently filled with stories about food recalls, it is more important than ever to track and monitor food in logistics and transportation. Temp/humidity sensors can play a huge role in helping food-service, food-processing, and cold-chain companies to track food throughout its journey.

Whether you’re monitoring equipment en route or on location, Hitachi’s real-time temperature/humidity monitoring systems allow for a proactive approach versus the current reactive approach many companies use with temperature loggers. With real-time data and custom alerting, Hitachi's remote monitoring systems give you the transparency you need to protect your assets and protect your brand.


Monitor the Temperature and Humidity in Any Industrial Setting

Production equipment, electronic devices, and circuitry generate excess heat and may require a stable environment to improve product reliability and prevent premature failure. HiQ eSystems monitors temperature and humidity environments to prevent spoilage, mildew, or other damage to sensitive product inventories.


Remote Temperature Monitoring for Healthcare

HiQ eSystems provides remote, automated, and continuous environmental monitoring for the healthcare industry including dermatology, pharmaceutical, and veterinary medicine. HiQ eSystems monitors the environments of critical storage and transportation equipment such as stability chambers, refrigerators, freezers, LN2 Tanks, incubators, animal holding rooms, ultra-low freezers, cold rooms, and clean rooms.
