Monnit Introduces the ALTA Motion+ Sensor to Combine Motion, Temperature, and Humidity Sensing into One Sensor

new motion+ sensor

SALT LAKE CITY – December 16, 2021 – Monnit announced the launch of its new ALTA® Wireless Motion+ Sensor today. The three-in-one ALTA Motion+ Sensor combines sensing components to measure motion and occupancy, ambient temperature, and relative humidity (RH) in a wide variety of facilities.

Facility managers can easily install the AA battery-powered multi-sensor within 15 minutes. Then they can monitor environments in office buildings, warehouses, factories, hospitals, clinics, labs, kennels, restaurants, farms, greenhouses, and many more.

Detect Motion with Passive Infrared (PIR)

Get an instant alert via text, email, or call if the ALTA Motion+ Sensor detects a person or animal within a range of up to 4.5 meters or 15 feet. The sensor can help you boost facility security, detect room or area occupancy, safeguard inventory, optimize cleaning services, and more with actionable data.

Track Ambient Area Temperature

The ALTA Motion+ Sensor also monitors room or area temperatures around the sensor between -40°F to +257°F (-40°C to +125°C). Ensure climate conditions remain within your defined parameters to maintain comfort and protect people, equipment, inventory, and other assets.

Monitor and Maintain Ideal RH

The ALTA Motion+ Sensor keeps tabs on 0–100% RH with a built-in scientific-grade humidity element. Data centers, manufacturing facilities, life science labs, food processing plants, art galleries, grow houses, and many more are perfect use cases for the ALTA Motion+ Sensor.

Additional Key Features:

  • Provides a software-adjustable range of 15-ft / 12-ft / 9-ft
  • Offers an 80° viewing angle
  • Data logs up to 4000 readings
  • Delivers long-range data transmission for up to 1,200+ feet, non-line-of-sight coverage
  • Stores sensor data in the iMonnit Sensor Management System
  • Safeguards data with Monnit Encrypt-RF™ bank-level security, featuring 256-bit key exchange and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)-128 CTR.

The iMonnit cloud-based sensor management system saves trend and alert data so you can review it on a dashboard, export it, and integrate it into other data systems like a building management system (BMS).

Monnit also offers the ALTA Wireless Standard and Wide Angle Motion and Occupancy Sensors within our passive infrared (PIR) ALTA Motion and Occupancy Detection Sensor product line.
