Monnit Rolls Out 3 New Gas Sensors to Help Businesses Keep Employees Safe

Monnit's 3 new gas sensors


SALT LAKE CITYFebruary 19, 2019 – Monnit has developed three new air quality sensors which determine the level of harmful gases at any work site, office, or residential complex.

“We have added these gas sensors to our existing air sensors so customers can monitor more air-borne threats,” said Brad Walters, Monnit CEO. “Monnit has the flexibility to rapidly develop new sensors when customers request them. As we chart our roadmap, we always consider the number of customers each new sensor would impact. It is especially satisfying to create devices which keep our customers’ employees and tenants healthy and safe.”

New Monnit Gas Sensors

Monnit’s MEMS-based gas sensors monitor the concentration of gases in the surrounding air. The sensors return gas readings to iMonnit or users’ websites, and notifications can be set up to alert via email, voice, or text when levels have exceeded user-defined specifications.

NEW—CO Sensor

The danger of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is a growing concern, and the tragic effects of CO poisoning are featured far too often in the news.

NEW—CO2 Sensor

Maintaining an optimal air mixture can be a simple process. Monnit’s ultra-low-power, high-performance wireless carbon dioxide (CO2) sensors are efficient and effective.

NEW—H2S Sensor

OSHA classifies Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) as a hazardous gas and warns that concentrations over 700 parts per million (PPM) can cause rapid unconsciousness or instantaneous death. Though H2S has a distinct odor, exposure to H2S deadens the sense of smell. The H2S Sensor detects and measures H2S in the surrounding environment.

“Air quality sensors have been a focus for us because they aid our customers in every industry and every region of the world,” said Nick Mecham, VP of Business Development, Monnit. “These new gas sensors utilize Monnit’s superior range and battery life to make it easier than ever to ensure air quality in any work, or residential environment.”

Clearing the Air

Concern over the degradation of air quality is growing, but with Monnit’s available sensing technology, there has never been a better time to improve air quality, safety, and regulatory compliance of work sites, offices, and residential complexes. The new gas sensors join Monnit’s family of existing air sensors:

PM 2.5 Sensor

The ALTA Wireless PM 2.5 Sensor measures PM 1, PM 2.5, and PM 10 concentrations in the air. Readings are available in iMonnit or on users’ websites, and notifications can be set up to alert via email, voice, or text when levels have exceeded user-defined specifications. The sensor intakes air and samples it to determine the concentration and size of particulate matter.

Air Velocity Sensor

The Monnit Air Velocity Sensor measures the pressure difference between two input ports. Users can optimize their air refresh cycle with the Monnit Air Velocity Sensor. The sensor also gives vital metrics for air-dependent processes when ensuring a specific flow volume or maintaining consistent air pressure is imperative. Sensor measurement range is -50 m/s to 50 m/s. The device is fully calibrated and factors temperature into velocity calculations.

Monnit Premieres Reliable Insurance IoT Solution

ALTA Insure logo


SALT LAKE CITYFebruary 12, 2019 – Monnit Corporation (monnit.com) today announced the launch of the ALTA Insure™ program. The partnership program promotes collaboration with insurers and leverages Monnit’s award-winning ALTA® wireless sensor platform. ALTA Insure allows insurers to further differentiate themselves by presenting a more comprehensive loss-management solution. The platform can also help insurers lower premiums in an increasingly competitive market.

“Monnit has provided remote monitoring to insurance firms since our beginning,” said CEO Brad Walters. “As they have worked with diverse businesses, our wireless veterans have developed an IoT solution that is reliable, long-range and extremely secure.

“Two things are imperative to a remote monitoring solution: the reliable collection of accurate readings and the secure transmission of those readings to the cloud for monitoring and alerts. ALTA is the best solution to achieve both of these objectives with the utmost simplicity, security, reliability and economy.”

“Few industries can benefit so greatly from the advantages of an enterprise-grade remote-monitoring solution,” said Vice President Nick Mecham. “From re-insurers to individual brokers, insurance loss prevention is all about low-cost, high-reward solutions. We have proven ourselves in this arena, and we look forward to many new partnerships and collaborations.”

ALTA products offer four times the wireless range of competitors’ hardware—1,200+ feet, non-line-of-site. They also offer superior battery life—12+ years on two AA batteries. Additionally, ALTA products transmit data with bank-level security and have onboard memory for data as well as over-the-air updates—for remote maintenance and feature enhancements. Monnit believes a customer’s data is their property: they can access it from anywhere via online portal or export it to any software.

Monnit’s IOTvantage partner program allows business partners to private label the platform. Customized kitting, product development and software are also available to help tailor the platform to an organization’s needs.
