Flexpoint Releases Two New Products with Wireless Partner Monnit

DRAPER, Utah, Oct. 25, 2012 – Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. (OTCBB:FLXT) today announced that its innovative partner in wireless sensing technology, Monnit, has released two new products featuring Bend Sensor® technology. One is a seat sensor for occupancy detection and monitoring, Wireless Seat Occupancy Sensor and the other is designed to measure airflow in HVAC systems, Wireless Airflow Sensor.

These products are now available for purchase on Monnit’s web site at http://www.monnit.com.

Both products transmit data wirelessly to Monnit’s online sensor monitoring and alerting system, which can be easily accessed from any PC or smartphone. The products, which have been under development for the past few months, are designed to meet growing demand for accurate, durable, easy to install occupancy and airflow solutions.
Both of these products target large industries and have multiple applications. There are tens of thousands of entertainment venues and hundreds of thousands of buses in the US alone, which represent just two of the potential markets for the occupancy sensor. HVAC is an $88 billion industry.

Together, Flexpoint’s proprietary thin film sensors and Monnit’s wireless infrastructure and online system are an ideal combination for easy to use “plug and play” solutions that can be used by clients in transportation, stadiums and theaters, HVAC and other industries.

Optimizing Your Wireless Sensor System

When dealing with wireless sensor networks, there are a lot of factors that affect the quality and reliability of transmission signals between your sensors and the gateway. We have compiled a list of useful tips to improve your wireless sensor network.

Position your Wireless Gateway in a central location
Whenever possible, position your wireless gateway in a central location within your facility. If the gateway is against an outside wall, the signal will be weak on the opposite side of your building.

Position your Wireless Gateway Correctly.
Floors, walls and metal structures such as heating ducts and file cabinets, interfere with your sensor network’s wireless signals. By avoiding these structural “Signal Killers” when placing your wireless gateway and sensors, you can ensure optimal performance of your network.

Use a Wireless Repeater.
Repeaters allow you to extend the coverage area of your wireless sensor network by repeating the signals between your wireless sensors and the wireless gateway. Place a Monnit Wireless Repeater / Range Extender halfway between your wireless sensors and the wireless gateway, and you will get an immediate boost in your wireless signal strength. The repeater will also act as a central access point for all of the sensors that are within it’s range.

Reduce wireless interference.
If you have cordless phones or other wireless electronics in your facility, your gateway might not be able to “hear” your sensors over the noise from the other wireless devices. To quiet the noise, avoid wireless electronics that use the 900MHz frequency. Instead, look for cordless phones that use the 5.8GHz or 2.4GHz frequencies.
