“I personally appreciate that all Monnit hardware is American-made. Even more, the company had an intense focus on security, usability, and affordability during product development with the ALTA Advanced Edge Gateway that helps it stand out,” comments Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World and president Specialty Publishing Media.
A Winning IoT Sensor-to-Server Solution The Edge Gateway utilizes the MQTTS protocol in delivering data from Monnit Wireless Sensors to cloud providers, such as Amazon AWS, and proprietary servers. The device uniquely “fingerprints” sensor data with a cryptographic validation stamp; authenticated data is then transmitted to a cloud broker.

Seasonal Monitoring Needs
Remote Rental Monitoring
The summer sun rises, shining a light on wanderlust. Hosts who rent remote and rustic retreats are now busily booking stays. And, these hosts can turn to remote monitoring to maintain safety and comfort.
Water Detect Plus Sensor Install near water features or under troublesome plumbing; unique lead helps avoid false alarms.
Monnit’s upcoming ALTA®Wireless Food Probe will bring the powerful Internet of Things directly to food production, commercial kitchens, and restaurants worldwide.
A quantum leap over manual data logging with clipboards, the food probe offers reliability and immunity to human error. Additionally, test chefs can observe food temperatures and manually trigger it to log data when experimenting with ingredients or preparation techniques.
With the food probe, users can:
• Enforce food safety guidelines and regulatory compliance during processing and packaging. • Enable chefs to experiment, finalize, and distribute recipes for mass-reproduction. • Ensure recipe consistency and examine data should a dish not meet expectations.
This spring, the food probe underwent beta testing in fast-food. Findings have been incorporated, and the device is launching this summer. Given the diversity of applications—ranging from c-stores and world-class steakhouses to vegetarian food trucks—customers will also have a choice of leaded probe styles.
Upon receiving an iMonnit temperature alert at midnight, Tamara Stawicki sprang into action. Her research lab is packed to the gills with zebrafish, and quite possibly the next advancement in understanding hearing health.
The Assistant Professor of Neuroscience is investigating how select medications and toxins kill the hair cells in humans’ ears that are vital for hearing and balance. And zebrafish are pointing the way.

Looking to the Future
Monnit’s Strain Gauge is on the horizon.
This upcoming sensor will unearth data buried within material handling, critical infrastructure, and more. Identify weaknesses before they become safety hazards or seize opportunities before your competitors do.
Monnit’s Strain Gauge will allow users to remotely measure a change in force, pressure, tension, or weight. This delta is then converted into an electrical signal that can be measured; the sensor then reports a proportional resistance change.
Within civil engineering and construction, monitor the health of tunnels, roads, and bridges. Within the process and energy sectors, track the status of heavy machinery or mission-critical assets, such as those on oil drilling platforms. Users in virtually every industry will benefit from always knowing the weights of barrels or tanks—stop unexpectedly running out of consumables that are needed to get the job done.
Across the globe, mixed-use retail and commercial properties have begun balancing public health with economic activity to welcome back employees, diners, gym-goers, and shoppers. Many food service, entertainment, and retail businesses are resuming operation by instituting health-focused policies that support social distancing, such as reducing crowd sizes and streamlining services.
Wireless sensors and the Internet of Things are poised to help by providing remote monitoring for environment and motion. Use turnkey sensors to track traffic, protect indoor air quality, and expedite customer service (boosting satisfaction along the way).
Text Override Values are a feature of Actions which allow you to enter text with a specific syntax into the Message of an Action which the iMonnit Online portal replaces with information from the triggering event. This allows you to customize the message of the Action delivered to the recipient to include information specific to the triggering condition. Click here to learn how to setup Text Override Values.
