All Monnit Wireless Humidity Sensors are Now High Accuracy

In an effort to consolidate their wireless humidity sensor offering, Monnit has discontinued lower accuracy sensors, making high accuracy humidity sensors the standard available product. All of Monnit’s wireless humidity sensors offer the same scientific grade quality and accuracy of the previous high accuracy humidity sensors at a new, lower price.

Monnit wireless humidity sensors allow you to monitor relative humidity of air within a room or enclosure. They are ideal for monitoring humidity within greenhouses, industrial spaces, museums, saunas and humidors. They can also be used for residential applications such as controlling mold, mildew or dust mites.

Monnit Wireless Humidity Sensors
-  Scientific grade sensor.
-  +/- 1.8% accuracy (between 10% - 90% RH).
-  0 to 100% RH operating range.

Focused on simplicity, Monnit wireless sensors can be setup, gathering data and notifying users of concerns in just a few short minutes. Monnit currently provides over 40 unique wireless sensor types for measuring temperature, humidity, door and window (open/close), motion, water, activity, dry contact and a variety of other conditions that are critical to businesses.

All Monnit wireless sensors include free basic iMonnit online sensor monitoring which aggregates sensor information and sends notifications via text or email if user defined conditions are met or exceeded.

Monnit also provides wireless sensors to OEM’s and Reseller’s through OEMSensors.com, which allows for white labeling (private branding) of both the wireless sensor hardware and the online monitoring software.

Monnit Releases Wireless Sensors’ Control Device

Monnit Wireless Control
Salt Lake City, UT – May 20, 2014 – Monnit Corporation (www.monnit.com), a leading provider of wireless monitoring and sensing solutions for commercial and industrial clients announced today the release of a much anticipated wireless control device. Perfect for retrofit applications, the Monnit Control device offers an easy and inexpensive way to add wireless control to a variety of commercial, industrial and consumer self-monitoring applications.

“The release of wireless control to our best-of-breed, self monitoring solutions is the first in a line of new products which round out the Monnit offering to address the gamut of needs for commercial and industrial monitoring. Monitoring is critical to business today and control is the obvious follow on to a need determined by a reliable, low cost monitoring solution.” said Brad Walters, CEO Monnit. “Intelligent control helps manage business processes, conserve energy and optimize operational efficiencies.”

The Monnit wireless control device provides two separate 10-amp or 30-amp relays (controls) that can be toggled on/off, at will, by either; a paired wireless sensor on the same network or directly by the user through the iMonnit.com web portal.

Each of the units two relays can be paired with any Monnit wireless sensor (currently over 40 types) to automatically activate the relay when the sensor detects user defined conditions. The user can set the default state of each relay to “on” or “off”, then set conditions that will cause the relay to switch. The control device will listen for messages from either the software or directly from the paired sensor (if in range) and check against the set conditions. If a sensor reading meets the set conditions, the control relay will automatically switch to the non-default state. When the sensor reports a reading that falls back outside the set conditions, the relay switches back to it’s default state. For example, if a water sensor detects water at a certain level in a sump pit, the relay will switch ON, activating the pump. When water is no longer detected, the relay will switch OFF, deactivating the pump motor.

In addition, the relays can also be directly switched on or off through the iMonnit software which is accessible from any web enabled device such as smart phones. These changes can also be defined as temporary, based on a set duration (example: turn the relay on for 10 minutes then switch off).

The new wireless control device is available from Monnit at www.monnit.com as well as available in a completely brandable version available through www.oemsensors.com. For more information visit http://www.monnit.com/Products/Accessories/Commercial-Control/.

Monnit Releases New Wi-Fi Analog Voltage Sensor

Monnit Wi-Fi Analog Voltage Sensor
Salt Lake City, Utah – April 29, 2014 – Monnit Corporation (www.monnit.com) today released a new Wi-Fi analog voltage sensor. The Wi-Fi analog voltage sensor is capable of measuring the voltage  off another device, battery, or sensor, up to 1.2 DCV by connecting the leads on the voltage sensor to the positive and ground terminals of the device being measured. Examples of interfacing devices include, but are not limited to: strain gauges, pressure transducers, RTDs, thermistors, thermocouples, piezo electric sensors, photoresistors, any kind of variable resistor or any kind of sensor that outputs a voltage, etc.

If the device being measured is passive, the user must supply their own excitation voltage, as the Monnit Wi-Fi analog voltage sensor is really just a “voltage observer”. This sensor cannot be used for AC voltage measurement.

Focused on simplicity, MoWi wireless sensors can be setup, gathering data and notifying users of concerns in just a few short minutes. This latest Wi-Fi sensor adds to the fifteen currently available MoWi (Monnit Wi-Fi) sensors that measure temperature, humidity, door and window (open/close), motion, water, activity, dry contact and a variety of other conditions that are critical to businesses. These sensors use an integrated, 2.4GHz - 802.11b/g, FCC/CE certified radio transmitter allowing them to communicate with new and existing Wi-Fi networks globally.

All Monnit wireless sensors include free basic iMonnit online sensor monitoring which aggregates sensor information and sends notifications via text or email if user defined conditions are met or exceeded.

Monnit also provides MoWi sensors to OEM’s and Reseller’s through OEMSensors.com, which allows for white labeling (private branding) of both the wireless sensor hardware and the online monitoring software.

Monnit and iMonnit Not Affected by the Heartbleed Bug

What is the Heartbleed Bug?

The Heartbleed Bug was disclosed Monday night (April 7, 2014) and is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs).

Heartbleed SSL Vulnerability

Does the Heartbleed Vulnerability Affect Monnit or iMonnit servers?

Monnit uses the latest in SSL technology and is pleased to state that our servers were never susceptible to the Heartbleed SSL Bug. Our customers and resellers can rest assured that our servers were never compromised.

 

What should you do next?

There is nothing you need to do when using the Monnit website or the iMonnit online sensors software.  is concerned, there is nothing more you need to do. However, this bug has affected many other sites over the past few years, and it's possible that sites you regularly visit may have been vulnerable.

You can check whether or not sites are susceptible using this tool: http://filippo.io/Heartbleed/

We recommend you update passwords for any websites in which you store sensitive information, such as email, banking, credit card payments, etc.
