When you begin using Monnit WIT Wireless Sensors you probably purchased them for a specific purpose. Maybe it was to track refrigerator temperatures or to know if there is a plumbing leak. While using the sensors for these applications, you may discover new information about your facility or home that you didn’t know before.

Real World Applications:
We were recently contacted by a company that is using our Monnit WIT Wireless Sensors to monitor areas of a building that are not in use. The sensors were purchased to be used as an alerting system to let building maintenance personnel know if the heating system fails, helping them avoid plumbing issues from frozen pipes. When the company looked at the data coming from the sensors, they realized that their control system was setup incorrectly and that the building was heating at night when not needed.

This company began to wonder if there were other areas of their facility that may not be operating as they believed and now use Monnit WIT Wireless Temperature Sensors to monitor areas such as IT servers, office space and storage areas to optimize temperatures for cost savings. They also use Monnit WIT Wireless Light Sensors after realizing they had issues with lights being left on continually in unoccupied areas. Using Monnit WIT Wireless Sensors around their facility has lead to substantial operating cost savings.
