IoT Solution for self-service vendor in Montagny-la-Ville, Switzerland

I have a complete overview of my self-service cabin so I can keep it correctly sanitised

«Belmont Fruits & Distillery» self-service cabin is a popular place for conveniently buying fresh farm products at anytime day or night. After a customer deposits money and makes a selection, the corresponding door in the hygenic stainless steel dispenser unlocks and the customer takes out their purchase. To keep surfaces sanitised periodically, as well as utilise reduced staff more efficiently, the business chose a complete IoT solution from the Switzercloud.

Staff are notified of each visit by a Switzercloud IoT motion detector fitted inside the cabin. The LoRaWAN®device senses when anyone enters the cabin and automatically alerts them via the Switzercloud platform. Instead of manning the cabin constantly, staff know exactly when to clean and wipe down all surfaces. Furthermore, owner Martin Rihs sees trends and patterns related to when and how many times the cabin is visited, helping him to better manage his team and when to restock the dispenser.

Thanks to the simple scaleability of the IoT solution, Martin aims to add further applications such as indoor climate monitoring, push button notification and door/window contacts to assist with day-to-day operations of his small business pursuits.
