Salt Lake City, UT – May 20, 2014 – Monnit Corporation (www.monnit.com), a leading provider of wireless monitoring and sensing solutions for commercial and industrial clients announced today the release of a much anticipated wireless control device. Perfect for retrofit applications, the Monnit Control device offers an easy and inexpensive way to add wireless control to a variety of commercial, industrial and consumer self-monitoring applications.
“The release of wireless control to our best-of-breed, self monitoring solutions is the first in a line of new products which round out the Monnit offering to address the gamut of needs for commercial and industrial monitoring. Monitoring is critical to business today and control is the obvious follow on to a need determined by a reliable, low cost monitoring solution.” said Brad Walters, CEO Monnit. “Intelligent control helps manage business processes, conserve energy and optimize operational efficiencies.”
The Monnit wireless control device provides two separate 10-amp or 30-amp relays (controls) that can be toggled on/off, at will, by either; a paired wireless sensor on the same network or directly by the user through the iMonnit.com web portal.
Each of the units two relays can be paired with any Monnit wireless sensor (currently over 40 types) to automatically activate the relay when the sensor detects user defined conditions. The user can set the default state of each relay to “on” or “off”, then set conditions that will cause the relay to switch. The control device will listen for messages from either the software or directly from the paired sensor (if in range) and check against the set conditions. If a sensor reading meets the set conditions, the control relay will automatically switch to the non-default state. When the sensor reports a reading that falls back outside the set conditions, the relay switches back to it’s default state. For example, if a water sensor detects water at a certain level in a sump pit, the relay will switch ON, activating the pump. When water is no longer detected, the relay will switch OFF, deactivating the pump motor.
In addition, the relays can also be directly switched on or off through the iMonnit software which is accessible from any web enabled device such as smart phones. These changes can also be defined as temporary, based on a set duration (example: turn the relay on for 10 minutes then switch off).
The new wireless control device is available from Monnit at www.monnit.com as well as available in a completely brandable version available through www.oemsensors.com. For more information visit http://www.monnit.com/Products/Accessories/Commercial-Control/.
