For some industries, measuring the temperature of assets is a critical part of daily processes. To address this use case, we created a response type that allows you to capture numerical values in the format of temperatures. This not only allows you to format questions to expect temperature responses and mark responses that are outside of preset ranges as failed responses, but it also enables the ability to pair with supported Bluetooth thermometers to capture temperatures accurately during an inspection.

This article outlines the formatting options for temperature questions and shows you how to create these questions in your templates to capture temperature responses. At iAuditor, we also offer sensor solutions to help you monitor conditions in real-time and get the right people alerted automatically when temperatures go out of critical range. Take a look at how others are getting value from iAuditor monitoring and how you can get on board!

Format options

Thresholds

Temperature responses outside of the threshold are considered failed responses.

  • Between: Temperature value should be between a certain range.
  • Greater than: Temperature value should be greater than a certain threshold.
  • Lesser than: Temperature value should be less than a certain threshold.

Temperature scale

Select between Celsius and Fahrenheit.

  • °C: Sets the temperature scale to read as Celsius.
