Crystal Ball

Let's take a look in our crystal ball to see what the future holds at Monnit

Monnit's development team is hard at work developing a new local alarm for wireless sensor networks. The Notifier A/V™ is a local notification device that provides visual and audible alerts when a wireless sensor on your network is in an alerting state. The new device can be added to any existing notification on your iMonnit account as an additional way to be alerted of important conditions. The Notifier A/V helps ensure that you are notified promptly when there is an issue that needs your attention. This new addition to the Monnit product lineup should be available in the near future.
