Salt Lake City, Utah – February 4, 2016 – Monnit Corporation ( today, announced new wireless Local Alert devices which serve to dramatically change how critical sensor network notifications can be received. Inherent to the Monnit solution, is the ability for user’s to create custom notifications based on sensor data, and be alerted by text, email or phone call. The Local Alert provides an additional way to receive critical notifications and sensor readings through the iMonnit network. The Local Alert includes a flashing LED light, audible buzzer alarm, and a backlit LCD display screen to notify users when a sensor has detected a condition that needs attention. The Local Alert can also be used to display sensor readings from any sensor on the same account.

“With the Local Alert, companies are now able to receive critical notifications from their sensor networks via an on-site device, in addition to our existing solutions of providing notifications by text, email or voice call,” said Brad Walters, CEO of Monnit Corp. “By placing a Local Alert in a common area, staff can be alerted of issues immediately, allowing them to respond in a timely manner. This solution will truly benefit both small and large businesses, and make it easier to manage processes and save money.”

Features of the Monnit Wireless Local Alert:

  • Provides audible and visual alerts for wireless sensor notifications.
  • Three alarm types: flashing red LED, audible buzzer, and backlit LCD message display.
  • LCD displays device name, custom message or sensor reading, and time of notification/reading.
  • Stores up to 10 notifications/readings.
  • Configurable alarm and snooze intervals.
  • Can be powered by included AC power supply or four 1.5V AA type batteries.
  • Power saving features to extend battery life.

Like all of Monnit’s wireless sensing products, the Local Alert includes free basic iMonnit online sensor monitoring, which provides an intuitive, easy-to-use dashboard, for configuring and managing wireless devices, and reviewing sensor data from any web enabled device, such as computers, tablets or smart phones. In addition to being able to send notifications to the Local Alert, the system can also send notifications via text, email or voice call if user defined conditions are met or exceeded.

Monnit also provides wireless sensors to OEM’s and Reseller’s through our IoTvantage Partner Program, which allows for white labeling (private branding) of both the wireless sensor hardware and the online monitoring software. Information on becoming a partner can be found at
