Use Cases of the New FireBoard Beacon
Before the launch of our new FireBoard Beacon, we decided to explore a variety of use cases for our new long-range wireless temp and humidity sensor. With a functioning product in hand, we approached a diverse group of businesses that would benefit from the technology. In addition to these commercial applications, we began an internal group of FireBoard employees linked with a Slack channel where we would share our home uses of Beacon and workshopped the firmware.

FireBoard Employee Testing
A small group of our designers and engineers were issued advanced production models to experiment with at home. Some of these early models had red cases. What resulted were some use cases outside of our intended commercial cold storage use. Possibly one of the most likely would be the consumer with their own chest freezer.
