Temperature monitoring for refrigeration equipment

Hi all,

My wife owns a small cafe and she’s been bitten a few times by refrigeration equipment failing. I’d like to install temperature sensors in her refrigerated cases, and these location beacons seem to be an inexpensive way to do this.

I have a Windows 10 PC with a Bluetooth 4 / BLE-capable dongle. Can anyone confirm this will work for monitoring temperature broadcasts from the estimote location beacons? Is there a Windows app that can track the temperature and send an alert (e-mail) if it goes out of bounds? Or if this doesn’t already exist, has anyone verified compatibility with the universal-beacon library?

Thank you!
