How Can Monnit Remote Monitoring Solutions Help Your Business?

Use Case Example

Did you know Monnit has a collection of Use Cases for potential customers to browse through when deciding if Monnit is the right option for their needs? We have created these documents to show how real-world environments are affected and protected by Monnit wireless sensors. All of these use cases come from actual customers who are either installing a Monnit system because a recent incident took place, or are providing insights as to how their Monnit network is preventing avoidable disasters.

Monnit products cover the needs for countless applications and industries. The main purpose at Monnit, is to provide IoT technology for everyone! Whether monitoring a school or church, looking after foods stored in coolers and freezers, or tracking conditions of expensive wood flooring, Monnit wireless sensors have you covered.

Monnit use cases are actual stories from our customers that describe an issue they were having, what Monnit products were implemented, and how those products have helped the customers since. For example, Monnit was contacted by the manager of a large corporation’s internal data center that had a water issue during a weekend. While their existing system monitored for temperatures and humidity, there was nothing set up to detect water intrusion. A toilet ended up leaking outside of the data center, which caused water to cover the floor and seep into the server room. The water caused an electrical short which took down several server stacks and damaged a handful of servers.

This is not the way anyone wants to start a Monday morning!  This example perfectly illustrates how Monnit wireless sensors can help protect any business from unexpected disasters. No one could have predicted a toilet issue several yards away from the data center could cause such significant damage. A typical unexpected disaster can results in thousands of dollars in damage, while Monnit wireless sensors start at just $49. For only a few hundred dollars, this company was able to implement a solution to safe-guard against this type of unforeseen incident in the future.

Prepare for Warmer Spring Weather with Monnit

Protect your buildings from the spring thaw

As winter draws to a close and spring-time comes around the corner, don’t let the changing conditions catch you off guard! Be prepared for potential disasters such as water intrusion due to snow thawing. There are several solutions from Monnit to help detect potential disasters early! Monnit offers 4 different sensors for water detection: Water Detect, Water Detect Plus, Water Rope, and Water Puck. Each of these sensors report the same type of data, whether or not water is present, but are all slightly different with how that data is collected. Let’s start with the simplest options, Water Detect and Water Detect Plus. Water Detect uses a 3 ft wire (customizable) to detect when water comes in contact with the wire ends, sending a notification to the iMonnit system. This sensor covers the least amount of surface area but is ideal for attaching directly to pipes or placing on the edge of a central drain where water would most likely flow. An optional “Detect Plus” probe can be added to the end of the water detection wire, which can be positioned and mounted at a set distance above the ground, eliminating false alarms. Perhaps a drain pan needs to be guarded against overflowing, this probe can be placed at the ideal level to alert users when water is getting dangerously high. Monnit’s Water Rope Sensor is exactly what it sounds like, a water sensitive rope which comes in 10 ft. segments and can be extended up to 100 ft. This type of water detection sensor is great for safe guarding entire rooms, typically the rope is placed at the bottom of a baseboard or in a sub-flooring area. A great example of this would be a customer who had a toilet break over the weekend, causing major flooding which eventually seeped into their data center. Had a water rope sensor been placed around the floor and doorway to that room, an alert would have sounded the second water touched it and would not have been discovered on Monday morning when it was too late. Finally, the Monnit Water Puck sensor is for portability and durability. This sensor is completely water sealed and can be placed in any potential problem area, inside or outside of a building.

Monnit has plenty of other sensors as well depending on what “Things” you would like to monitor. Accelerometers can be used to track mechanical movement and send alerts if pumps or motors start vibrating excessively. Humidity is another environmental factor to keep an eye on as the weather changes. With over 50 unique types of wireless sensors available, whatever your needs may be, Monnit has a solution! If you don’t find what you need, contact our team to ask about custom sensor development.  Whatever your needs may be, Monnit is here to assist and help safeguard your buildings as the weather changes in the coming months.

Monnit Introduces New Thermostat for Remote Facility Energy Savings

Salt Lake City, Utah – February 7, 2018 – Monnit Corporation (www.monnit.com) today, announced a new wireless thermostat which serves to increase energy savings for remote facilities. The Monnit Thermostat is designed specifically for remote configuration. It features an integrated motion sensor to auto detect if an area or room is occupied and can be set to enter an energy saving state when not needed. The thermostat will allow you to set a maximum and minimum temperature range for both occupied and non-occupied states.

Monnit Remote Thermostat

Monnit’s thermostat is a perfect solution for remote buildings which are typically unoccupied. The system will auto adjust comfort levels when personnel arrive and automatically return to normal when they leave. It is also great fit for corporate buildings, schools and churches to prevent random adjustments by unauthorized people as there are no manual adjustment buttons on the device.

“With Monnit’s new thermostat, companies are able to manage remote facility temperatures and optimize for cost and energy savings, while still being able to provide comfort levels when the space is being occupied,” said Brad Walters, CEO of Monnit Corp.

Features of the Monnit Thermostat:

  • Allows for remote setting and monitoring of HVAC systems.
  • Detects motion for occupied/non-occupied status.
  • Prevents unauthorized adjustments or tampering.
  • And much more…
