Monnit's ALTA wireless dry contact sensors can be used to detect contact between two wired contact points. This sensor can be used with an external mechanical switch or a contact plate to alert the user via SMS text and/or email when the contacts touch or a switch is triggered.
* Actual range may vary depending on environment.
** Battery life is determined by sensor reporting frequency and other variables.
