New Open-Closed and Magnetic Presence Sensors

We have recently updated our Open/Closed and Magnetic Presence sensors to include an external magnetic switch with 15 inch wire leads. These sensors detect the presence or removal of a trigger magnet allowing you to track access to doors or windows. When the sensor detects that the magnet is removed or returned it sends the information to the iMonnit Online Sensor Monitoring and Notification System where custom alerts can be sent via SMS text or email.

Monnit Open-Closed Sensors     • Available in 900, 868
      and 433MHz frequencies.
    • Detects the presence of a
      magnetic source.
    • 15 inch wire leads.
    • Replaceable battery

The new sensors are available through the Monnit Online Store.

Monnit has a low-cost, easy to use wireless sensor solution for apartment property management.

Using Monnit Wireless Sensors for apartment property monitoring allows property managers to be notified immediately if any issues occur that could cause damage. Know instantly about water heater leaks, plumbing issues, AC unit failure, and many other things critical to maintaining safe living areas for residents. Monnit wireless sensors track conditions for you, sending the information to the iMonnit Online Sensor Monitoring and Notification System where custom alerts can be sent via SMS text or email. We recommend using Monnit's affordable wireless water sensors to monitor for plumbing issues. We also recommend using Monnit's wireless temperature sensors to monitor temperatures inside or outside of tenant apartments and common areas.
