Parking Garage Light Monitoring

Parking Garage
Light Monitoring

Managing a parking garage requires that the lighting is adequate to maintain a safe environment for your patrons. How do you know if you have poorly lit areas within your structure?

Using Monnit Wireless Light Sensors can ensure that your facility parking garage is maintained as a safe environment. Monnit wireless sensors can measure the amount of light in a set area and alert you if the lighting conditions are poor, signaling that you may need to change lightbulbs or fix lighting. The system also tracks and stores your sensor data providing a detailed report as well as spreadsheet export functionality. Ensure that your parking garage is kept safe by using Monnit wireless sensors. « Learn More

Calibrate Wireless Temperature Sensors
Through the iMonnit System.

Did you know that you can calibrate a wireless temperature sensor to make it more accurate for your application? The Monnit wireless temperature sensor is accurate to +/- 1°C (1.8°F) and calibration to the sensor's working environment provides even greater accuracy. To calibrate your sensors, open your favorite browser and login to your iMonnit account at www.imonnit.com.

1. Once logged into the system, go to the "Sensor
     List" panel and click on the name of the temperature
     sensor you want to calibrate.
2. From the sensor information window, click on the
     Calibrate tab.
3. Make note of the last reading the sensor returned.
4. Enter the actual temperature that the sensor should
     have returned.
5. Click the "Calibrate" button.

It will take the sensor 2 heartbeats to fully calibrate. Do not attempt any further calibrations until at least 2 heartbeats have elapsed. The calibration function is a linear calibration so it is recommended that you calibrate the sensor in the environment that it will be measuring. (It is not advised to calibrate a temperature sensor to room temperature and then place the sensor in a cooler or freezer.)
