increased sensor rage

LAS VEGAS, NV and SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – June 06, 2018 – At Realcomm 2018, the leading conference focused on technology, innovation and automation for the Commercial and Corporate Real Estate and Facilities industries, Monnit Corporation ( today announced that their award-winning ALTA wireless products have been upgraded to version 10.22. This new firmware implements several advancements and provides a 20 percent increase in battery life. Lab and in-field testing validated that ALTA sensors will last 12.5 years on two standard alkaline AA batteries when transmitting data every 10 minutes.

“Monnit engineering is pleased with the outcome of our recent efforts for advanced functionality on the ALTA platform,” said Monnit Technology Architect Kelly Lewis. “Monnit’s customer base continually emphasizes how important reliability is when deploying thousands upon thousands of sensors. Maintaining batteries for remote deployments can severely impact a system’s ROI. Businesses need to carefully consider this variable when choosing a remote monitoring solution.”

“At the Realcomm show, inquiries about IOT solutions for commercial properties always come back to reliable power options,” said Brad Walters, CEO, Monnit. “A leading concern for facility and property managers is battery life. They don’t want to worry about frequent battery maintenance for a solution that is inherently designed to minimize maintenance overall.”

ALTA products offer four times the wireless range (1,200+ feet, non-line-of-site) and much stronger battery life than traditional sensors. ALTA products also include bank level security for data transmissions, onboard memory for data logging (if a sensor is out-of-range), and over-the-air updates allowing for remote maintenance and feature enhancements.

All of Monnit's wireless sensors include free basic iMonnit online sensor monitoring with SMS text, voice call and email alerting.  For more information on Monnit’s ALTA sensors, gateways and remote monitoring software, call (801) 561-5555 or visit
