Monnit is proud to introduce ALTA. Finally, wireless sensors re-imagined for the Internet of Things. ALTA products are the leading enterprise-grade remote monitoring and control solution for global business.
Best in class remote monitoring solutions for business.
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.
ALTA is the only wireless sensor platform on the planet with 12+ year battery life and over 1,200 feet wireless range (non-line-of-sight). ALTA 900 MHz products use frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS), and ALTA 868 and 433 MHz products are frequency-agile, providing better RF interference immunity in the most demanding applications.
ALTA products use Monnit’s new Encrypt-RF® bank level security, featuring a 256-bit exchange to establish a global unique key, and an AES-128 CTR for all data messages. So security is maintained at all communication points from sensor to gateway, gateway to software, and back again.
Integrated on-board data storage allows for days, weeks or months of time-stamped data logging.
Over-the-air (OTA) updates allow ALTA products to be updated remotely making them future-proof.
