Greetings and Happy New Year from Monnit!
In 2022, Monnit officially enters its 12th year in business. As I look back on our history, I’m amazed and grateful for how far we’ve come and how bright the future is for our Internet of Things (IoT) business.
We owe our growth and success as a global IoT market leader to the heart of our company—our customers, employees, and cultures that bring us together worldwide. We continue to build Monnit, knowing that our sensors’ actionable data can transform virtually any business and make people better at the work they do.
With this valuable intelligence, you solve pressing problems and can find ways to increase the value of your business. Our IoT solutions repeatedly show measurable return on investment for businesses across the broad spectrum of industries by creating efficiencies and enabling new business models.
Whether it’s building transformative products that monitor life-saving vaccines, critical high-value assets, or vital services for precious people and animals—the work we do every day continues to be a source of incredible pride for us here at Monnit. We do it for you—our valued customers.
While this past year was challenging, Monnit ran strong through another year of the pandemic. We amped up our diverse portfolio of 80+ sensors with new sensing solutions. We hope you feel strengthened by our commitment to helping you stay connected to critical processes and assets in your business. During 2021, Monnit:
- Bid a fond farewell to the Generation One (Gen1) product line that was the foundation of our sensing business for many years.
- Premiered the new solutions-based, mobile-responsive Monnit.com for a more streamlined user experience.
- Launched the award-winning ALTA Wireless Soil Moisture Sensor, plus the ALTA Wireless PAR Light Meter and ALTA Wireless Motion+ Sensor.
- Broadened our global reach across the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region with Monnit Korea and grew our customer base in Europe.
- Achieved key performance and growth indicators, served 50,000+ customers, and generated over eight billion new data points in 2021 (29 billion to date).
We see so much reason for optimism throughout this year and the years ahead. The complexity of national and global disruptions may continue to test our resilience and resolve to be the best. Yet, we know that we’re capable of overcoming seemingly overwhelming challenges together with you. Our team is excited about new product developments through partnerships or acquisitions for many industries, including oil and gas, facility management, agriculture, manufacturing, and many more. Ultimately, we expect 2022 to be our strongest year yet, and we look forward to helping you grow your business.
Founder & CEO
Available Now: The Classic Triple Threat Sensor
The ALTA® by Monnit Wireless Motion+ Sensor was recently unveiled as an undeniable triple threat to monitor—motion, ambient temperature, and relative humidity (RH). That’s three innovative yet essential sensing skills in one sensor to measure conditions in virtually any facility.
It’s a perfect monitoring solution for building occupancy, security, and comfort as people (and even animals) move in and out of various spaces. It’s easy to see that the Motion+ Sensor can be used in facility management from offices to restrooms to server rooms. But think of its application in hospitals, long-term care facilities, data centers, home health care, labs, hotels, warehouses, greenhouses, barns, kennels, and many more.
With the three-in-one ALTA Motion+ Sensor, you can monitor conditions in many scenarios, like:
- Know how and when a room, area, or building is used and adjust conditions based upon occupancy.
- Better care for the safety and comfort of patients, seniors, employees, and animals.
- Optimize HVAC and comfort, mitigate mold, streamline cleaning, track access, and more.
See where the ALTA Motion+ Sensor can fit into your business.
Are You Ready For the AT&T 3G Sunset?
Don’t be left without IoT data services. AT&T will turn off its 3G network on February 22, 2022, so you can’t run your sensor network on an ALTA 3G Gateway after that date.*
It’s easy to upgrade to an ALTA 4G LTE Gateway, and now is the time to migrate to the 4G LTE Internet of Things (IoT) and device solutions. The Monnit team is ready to help you make your move to more advanced cellular networks.
See “The Countdown to the End of 3G Continues” to know which ALTA 4G LTE Cellular Gateway is right for you.
AT&T is shifting more resources to its 5G network like other carriers. The carrier continues to notify customers that they must upgrade to at least a 4G LTE-enabled device before its 3G network shuts down.
Connect to a 4G LTE cellular network with our ALTA 4G LTE Gateway. Please call and talk to a Monnit Sales Representative today at 801.561.5555 or email the sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Applies only to ALTA 3G Cellular Gateways in the United States. 3G gateways deployed internationally are not affected.
Buy Monnit Remote Monitoring Solutions Before Prices Go Up
Due to unfavorable market conditions and rising costs for everything from sensing components to fuel to inflation, we will increase prices across all products on February 10.
We’re balancing this act of raising prices in the slightest way possible to maintain high product and service quality. To avoid a higher price, we encourage everyone to save by placing their orders now and before that date.
We value our relationship with you and appreciate your understanding as we navigate the future together. We remain steadfast in offering the best wireless, low-power, and long-range sensors with our innovative gateways and software.
Please feel free to discuss this price increase and how we can help with your remote monitoring plans with your sales representative. See the “Prices for Monnit Remote Monitoring Solutions Will Rise in February” blog post for more details about global supply chain issues and the price increase.

Tech Tip: Set Up Actions in iMonnit for Refrigeration Systems
Watch this short how-to video to set up Actions in iMonnit that help you track temperatures and more in refrigeration systems. Actions are essential for reactive and predictive remote monitoring. Creating Actions in iMonnit will trigger alerts or notifications on your mobile device to help you actively monitor critical changes and the status of your refrigeration system.
In this video, you will:
- Learn how to set thresholds and ranges that, when breached, will prompt an Action.
- Decide what triggers different actions, such as a Standard or Low Temperature Sensor reading in a refrigerator or freezer.
- Avoid being notified every time a refrigeration unit is opened and specify critical Action triggers.
Share Your Case Study
How Do You Monnit?
Monnit invites our partners and customers to share their unique applications or case studies with us about how they’re using Monnit Sensors. We all know that Monnit’s ALTA® Temperature Sensors can monitor refrigerator and freezer temps—that’s pretty standard stuff. But how are you deploying a Temperature Sensor that you think is unique to what you do?
If your submission is accepted, our marketing team will reach out to you to profile the application in greater detail. We’ll send you a Monnit hat and T-shirt for participating in this effort, and your case study or generic use case will be featured on Monnit.com and social media channels.
