The Reykjabuid poultry manufacturer manages many locations, where each facility needs to receive full attention - 24 hours a day.

Being a poultry producer is very demanding and requires high amount of quality control. Chickens are sensitive to temperature, and require precisely the right amount of water and food. In a relatively short period of time, accidents can happen if these elements malfunction on the farm. If the temperature falls below certain levels the risk of losing the chickens increases very rapidly.

The Reykjabuid poultry manufacturer manages many locations, where each facility needs to receive full attention - 24 hours a day. It was therefore decided that wireless sensors were installed to monitor all of its facilities, thereby making it easy to monitor the temperature and humidity in each. The sensors also monitor the water consumption, electrical consumption, and feeding (silo) consumption. Everything that matters is covered. All of this is done via the same simple and easy to install monitoring solution provided by Controlant.

Now, the manufacturer can follow all important issues from one central place, get warnings, print out reports and carry out other varied kinds of analysis. Because of its simple and robust design, the Controlant solution is a perfect fit for the poultry industry, as well as for others.
