The ALTA Wireless Water Detection Puck Sensor detects when water is present by completing the circuit between the two probe points on the bottom of the puck sensor. When water is present the sensor will immediately turn on the RF radio and transmit the data to the wireless gateway and iMonnit Online Sensor Monitoring and Notification System, allowing the user to immediately receive an SMS text or email alert. The sensor can be configured to detect both the presence and non-presence of water.
ALTA sensors offer 3 to 4 times the range of standard sensor platforms, extending non-line-of-sight reach to an exceptional 1,000+ feet through walls (12-14 walls typical). Using Frequency-hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) also allows ALTA sensors to have better interference immunity from other wireless devices.
Superior power management provides ALTA sensors with almost twice the battery life of Monnit’s standard wireless sensors.
Integrated on-board data storage allows ALTA sensors to store data messages if communication to a wireless gateway is disrupted (power outage, Internet outage, or out of range). Messages that can’t be delivered will be time-stamped and stored in memory (up to the last 512 messages) until communication with the gateway is restored, at which point the messages will all be transmitted.
Over-the-air updates allow ALTA products to be updated remotely if new fixes or features become available.
Power options must be selected at time of purchase, as the internal hardware of the sensor must be changed to support the selected power requirements.
