Product Description

Monnit wireless dry contact sensors can be used to detect contact between two wired contact points. This sensor can be used with an external mechanical switch or a contact plate to alert the user via SMS text and/or email when the contacts touch or a switch is triggered.



Product Features

  • Senses immediate contact between wires.
  • Can also sense when contact is broken.
  • Variety of lead lengths available.

*   Actual range may vary depending on environment.
** Battery life is affected by reporting frequency (heartbeat), sensor type, Wi-Fi security type, distance from Wi-Fi router and other variables.

In order to program the sensor to connect to your wif-fi network, you will need a Wi-Fi programming cable and the free MoWi setup utility. The MoWi setup utility is currently available for Windows® PC's only. Mac and Linux are not currently supported!
