Monnit is proud to introduce ALTA. Finally, wireless IoT sensors have been re-imagined to provide the utmost reliability, range, and battery life. ALTA products are the leading remote monitoring and control solution for global business.
Best-in-class remote monitoring solutions from an award-winning IoT solution provider
Superior wireless range
1,200+ ft. non-line-of-sight through 12+ walls
12+ years powered by 2 AA batteries
Integrated bank-level security (256-bit exchange and AES-128 CTR on all messages)
Onboard data memory
Store up to 512 readings per sensor:
- 10-min heartbeats = 3.5 days
- 2-hour heartbeats = 42 days
Over-the-air updates allow products to be updated remotely
Putting the Internet of Things to work for your business doesn’t have to be a hassle. The ALTA platform streamlines IoT and Industrial IoT (IIoT) implementation, giving you a remote monitoring system with unprecedented reliability, range, and battery life.
Concerned about the time it takes to implement a remote temperature monitor or other IoT sensors? ALTA's 60+ sensors set up in less than 15 minutes. The extensive ALTA sensor lineup provides IoT solutions for keeping an eye on numerous changing conditions: there are options for environmental monitoring, activity monitoring, and power monitoring.
All of your wireless sensor data is available in iMonnit—with online and app-based IoT applications that simplify monitoring and sensor configuration. You can also turn on text, email, or call alerts to notify you when conditions you have specified are met. You can even manage more than one IoT network from a single iMonnit account. Every ALTA product includes basic monitoring and alerts—no subscriptions required, and no monthly fees.
A robust wireless signal allows you to place sensors virtually anywhere needed—within a 1,200-foot radius. The signal reaches through 12 walls, adding deployment flexibility for Industrial IoT applications on multiple floors or in large buildings.
ALTA is the only wireless sensor platform with 12+ year battery life. IoT sensors with outstanding battery life allow you to deploy once and monitor confidently for years. Industrial IoT sensors come in a weatherproof enclosure—IP65, NEMA 4X, CE-rated.
Wireless IoT systems offer convenience but can be less secure. However, your data is safe with Encrypt-RF®: Bank-level security uses a 256-bit exchange and an AES-128 CTR for all data transmission. ALTA products are also equipped to avoid wireless interference: 900 MHz products use frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS). 868 and 433 MHz sensors are frequency agile.
If your wireless sensor loses connection with the gateway, your data will be there when the connection is restored: Integrated data storage allows for days, weeks, or months of time-stamped data logging. An IoT gateway with battery backup offers even more options if power outages are a particular concern in your situation.
Over-the-air (OTA) updates allow ALTA's user-friendly IoT products to receive improvements without down time, making them future-proof and hassle-free. Updates can mean drastic improvements to already-groundbreaking IoT devices: a recent ALTA update included optimizations which increased battery life from 10+ to 12+ years and wireless range from 1,000+ ft. to 1,200+ ft. (non-line-of-sight).
