There are two parts to Clever Logger – loggers and gateways.
The loggers sit in your fridges and cool rooms and measure the temperatures. They broadcast their temperatures using Bluetooth.
The gateway sits outside the fridge. It is connected to power and to the internet. It hears the temperatures being broadcast by the loggers and saves them to the internet. A single gateway can handle multiple loggers.
