Glimpse of the future

Crystal Ball

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

Monnit's development team will be hard at work developing a new USB virtual serial COM port. The USB dongle will allow you to collect data from Monnit wireless sensors and stream the data through your PC (or other USB enabled device) via a USB virtual COM port, integrating the additional data into your existing sensing and control infrastructures. This new addition to the Monnit product lineup should be available in the near future. If you would like to learn more about this product or be notified when it becomes available, please email us at sales@monnit.com.

Monitor Areas for Access

Using Wireless Sensors to Monitor Areas for Access

Whether you are a large business or a small "mom & pop" shop, you want to ensure employee safety, protect your company assets and track access to your building or certain areas within your facility.

Monnit provides a remote monitoring solution for commercial small businesses. Monnit wireless sensor systems can help you detect and track access to buildings, rooms, cabinets and other areas. Sensor alerts can be set to alert during certain hours of the day, allowing you to know immediately of any unauthorized access after business hours. We recommend using Monnit's affordable wireless open/closed sensors to track and monitor the doors and windows to any area you want to remotely monitor for access. We also recommend using Monnit's wireless infrared motions sensors to monitor rooms and open areas for motion/movement of humans or larger animals up to 16 feet away.

Know immediately of any unauthorized access to monitored buildings, rooms, or areas.
