Solution & Process

How This Solution Works

Sensors & Data Loggers

Sensors with ISO/IEC 17025 or NIST-traceable calibration applied to refrigeration units and cold rooms allow remote monitoring of temperature and humidity and confirm that equipment is working and complying with regulatory requirements, such as HACCP for food manufacturing.

Cloud Monitoring

Data loggers collect temperature and humidity data and automatically deliver it to our cloud-based remote monitoring system OCEAView, so you can monitor essential data anytime, anywhere.

Alarm Reporting

OCEAView’s intuitive dashboard displays all critical monitoring information on a single screen, giving users an easy way to access real-time status, audit trails, and alarm reports. Effortlessly create customized, automated reports for alarm reporting.

Real-Time Alerts

Create tailored alarm notifications to alert users via phone call, SMS, or email so they can take corrective action to protect your assets. Set up alerts for warnings and excursions, high/low variable readings, and device failures or disconnects.

Effective Vaccine Monitoring White Paper

Vaccine potency and safety rely heavily on the integrity of the cold chain. Any temperature variance or break in the cold chain could potentially affect vaccine quality and efficacy. 

In this whitepaper, learn about the vaccine cold chain, best practices, and regulations involving vaccine temperature monitoring. You’ll also learn about developing a well-orchestrated strategy for vaccine temperature monitoring.

Dickson Covers Your Monitoring Needs

Our comprehensive environmental monitoring solutions ensure you meet your compliance needs confidently. Combining more than 100 years of experience and cutting-edge technology, Dickson can give you the peace of mind that our monitoring systems cover all your needs.

Real-Time Monitoring

With real-time monitoring across multiple points, our environmental monitoring solutions alert you if any sensor detects significant temperature excursions, disconnects, or device failures. Whether email, text, or phone call, receive alerts how and when you want so that corrective actions can be taken quickly to prevent loss.

Accurate Calibration

Over time, sensors need regular calibration as they gradually lose pinpoint accuracy due to natural wear and tear, which can lead to a false sense of security, placing products at risk and creating unnecessary alarms. With Dickson’s in-house COFRAC accredited lab, you get accurate calibration (ISO/IEC 17025 and NIST-traceable) to ensure you remain compliant.

Scale Easily

Whether it’s a thousand sensors or multiple facilities and locations, our monitoring systems are built to scale so you spend less time monitoring and more time being productive. With OCEAView, you can view all your devices and settings in a single location, and manage and configure devices consistently.


With comprehensive dashboard and alarm reporting capabilities, Dickson takes the guesswork out of compliance reporting. From the OCEAView dashboard, you can centralize and create custom, robust reports that leverage compliance features and log audits for proof of performance.

We Have The Right Features To Support Your Solution

Our cold room and refrigerator monitoring solution covers all types of cold storage facilities, from single refrigerators to pharmaceutical-grade units.

Whether you are storing frozen food, lab samples, or critical vaccines, our monitoring solutions have all the features to help you verify that everything is stored in the correct condition and alert you when your refrigerated inventories are at risk.

Real-Time Alerts

Easily configure real-time alerts and notifications via email, text, phone messages or audible alarms for any excursions. Get immediate alerts if predefined thresholds are met, and alert personnel to take action before temperatures actually start to go out of range.

Enhanced Visibility

With cloud-based remote monitoring, you get gap-free data of your cold storage temperature and humidity with a complete audit trail. Drill down into all of your monitored cold storage units in a dashboard view to see essential data over any time period.


From a single freezer or cold room to multiple facilities, located anywhere in the world, our remote monitoring solution scales with your needs. Monitor multiple refrigerator units in different locations in one centralized view and access data from any device.

High Accuracy And Reliability

Monitor essential data with high accuracy, precision, and reliability using our sensors with ISO/IEC 17025 and NIST-traceable calibration. Our replaceable sensors also make recalibration operations as simple as swapping out batteries.

Automated Compliance Reporting

Meet strict monitoring and high-level safety requirements set by the FDA and international regulatory bodies throughout the food and medical industries. Automate daily reporting tasks and easily create alarm reports to demonstrate compliance and stay audit-ready
