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 is always hard at work developing new wireless sensors and enhancing sensors based on customer feedback. A few months ago, we mentioned the development of a new control unit that could be used to control low power servos and switches; ideal for data centers, sump pump control and other light industrial applications. We are nearing completion of this new device and wanted to let you know that it should be available in late January or early February. If you would like to learn more about this product or be notified when it becomes available, please email us at sales@monnit.com.

Application of the Month

Monitor Greenhouse Temperature and Humidity

Using wireless sensors to monitor the temperature and humidity in greenhouses.

Plants require the proper environmental conditions for optimal growth and health. If the mixture of temperature and humidity are incorrect, fruit and vegetable yield can be affected. Monnit can help you monitor and maintain the optimal mix of environmental conditions for plant growth.

With Monnit Wireless Temperature Sensors and Wireless Humidity Sensors you can have 24/7 monitoring of your greenhouses and have the ability to track environmental changes, allowing you to maximize your energy efficiency and grow healthier crops with a higher yield. Now you can make fewer assumptions and minimize mistakes when balancing the environmental conditions within your greenhouses.

Maximize Your Greenhouse Efficiency with Monnit Wireless Sensors.

Tech Tip of the Month

by The WiSe Guys

How to Program MOWI™ (Wi-Fi) Sensors
with Wi-Fi Network Security.

MOWI™ Wi-Fi sensors work with any existing Wi-Fi network. In order to setup a MOWI sensor to use a secured Wi-Fi network (WEP, WPA or WPA2), you will need to add security access information to the sensor. This tech-tip will take you through that process.

Step 1. Download and install the MoWi setup application from the Monnit Support page. This simple program will allow you to add Wi-Fi network security to your sensor as well as provide advanced communication settings such as DHCP and the ability to send sensor data to 3rd party web applications.

Step 2. With the application installed and running, follow the instructions to download and install the USB programming cable driver.

Plug MOWI Sensor into PCStep 3. After installing the USB cable driver, plug one end of the cable into an available port on your PC. Then peel back the label on the end of the MOWI sensor (where indicated) and plug the other end of the cable into the sensor.

Step 4. Enter the Wi-Fi network credentials. You can use the connected sensor, to search for Wi-Fi networks within range if you are unsure of the wireless network SSID. You will also need to select the type of security being used, and a Key / Passphrase for the Wi-Fi network.

Enter Wi-Fi Network Credentials

For the majority of users, this is all the information needed.

Step 5. Click the "Configure Sensor" button in the bottom right side of the application.

Click the Configure Button

You should now see a confirmation window telling you that the sensor has been configured. Step 6. Click "OK" on the pop-up window to close it. You can now unplug the MOWI sensor. The LED on the sensor should flash green as it tries to connect to the Wi-Fi network. It should give a long green flash when it successfully connects. If it flashes red at the end, make sure you are within range of the Wi-Fi router, plug the USB cable into the sensor and try to program the sensor again. (You should not need to re-enter any information, just click on the "Configure Sensor" button when the sensor shows that it is connected.)

Repeat for any additional sensors.

If you need to set a custom host configuration protocol, or want to send the sensor's data to a 3rd party web application, click on the "Advanced Settings" button.

From here you can enter the server information for the 3rd party web application, or uncheck the box next to "Use DHCP" to enter custom parameters for your Wi-Fi network.
