RoviTracker Launches New Online Monitoring Platform Integrating Monnit Sensors

Salt Lake City, UtahNovember 20, 2018RoviTracker (rovitracker.com), a leading Asset Management Software provider, announced today a new online monitoring platform that integrates Monnit sensors to provide more data to their users.

“Customers can access readings from all their sensors and see video from each of their cameras in one interface,” said Alain Eav, Founder and CEO of RoviTracker. “To ensure utmost usability, the RoviTracker team has allowed several large organizations to test the interface during development. The resulting platform is easy to use and allows customers to upload a floor plan before dragging and dropping sensors and cameras into position. When a situation arises, or maintenance is required, users know exactly where to deploy.”

Project managers face the challenge of collecting data from multiple sources and giving access to key team members in a way that facilitates swift action. The real value of RoviTracker’s innovative platform is the single-hub approach to presenting sensor readings and video surveillance.

“When it comes to asset management, the main concerns are where the asset is, if it is in motion and whether it is powered on,” said Brad Walters, Founder and CEO of Monnit. “Using Monnit sensors to provide this data in RoviTracker’s new platform will dramatically improve asset protection. It also allows for predictive maintenance which increases equipment longevity.”

Monnit and Glassbeam Ink Partnership Agreement

Glassbeam Expands Healthcare Equipment Analytics with Environmental Telemetry Data

SANTA CLARA, Calif.Oct. 04, 2018 — Glassbeam, Inc., the premier machine data analytics company, announced today the integration of environmental sensor data into its Clinical Engineering Analytics (CLEAN™) Blueprint software, enhancing quality and time to insights.  Monnit Corporation’s ALTA IoT sensors will provide this new data.  Monnit sensors monitor environmental factors, such as room temperature and humidity; when these factors deviate beyond specific ranges, they can adversely impact the performance of expensive hospital imaging equipment, such as CT scanners and MRI machines.

“Maintaining the uptime of expensive health care equipment is of paramount importance to healthcare providers; patient care and safety are prioritized, and providers avoid financial setbacks,” said Brad Walters, CEO of Monnit.  “Using Monnit sensors to provide environmental telemetry data for Glassbeam’s continuously increasing data set will dramatically improve providers’ ability to implement predictive maintenance and increase equipment performance.”

Previously, CLEAN™ Blueprint was primarily focused on collecting, assimilating and analyzing machine logs from complex equipment such as MRI and CT Scanners. The new capability will monitor external environmental factors that can impact proper functioning of medical imaging assets. This solution advancement will collect the environmental telemetry data such as compressor power, water inlet and outlet temperature, room humidity and temperature readings every few seconds. Combining telemetry data with machine logs into one holistic data model provides incredible value by alerting staff on impending failures within operating imaging machines. This addition will translate into higher machine uptime, lower maintenance costs, and overall superior patient care.

“External factors surrounding machine maintenance are often overlooked,” said Puneet Pandit, CEO and founder of Glassbeam. “Knowing critical environmental factors such as humidity, room temperature and equipment water flow can impact the performance of medical equipment and when addressed, can help prevent machine failure. By integrating environmental telemetry data with machine logs, Glassbeam has moved one step closer to its vision of providing a 360-degree view on medical imaging machines’ performance and uptime.  This is especially important for providers who have facilities with unreliable infrastructure or mobile units in remote locations.”

How Can Monnit Remote Monitoring Solutions Help Your Business?

Use Case Example

Did you know Monnit has a collection of Use Cases for potential customers to browse through when deciding if Monnit is the right option for their needs? We have created these documents to show how real-world environments are affected and protected by Monnit wireless sensors. All of these use cases come from actual customers who are either installing a Monnit system because a recent incident took place, or are providing insights as to how their Monnit network is preventing avoidable disasters.

Monnit products cover the needs for countless applications and industries. The main purpose at Monnit, is to provide IoT technology for everyone! Whether monitoring a school or church, looking after foods stored in coolers and freezers, or tracking conditions of expensive wood flooring, Monnit wireless sensors have you covered.

Monnit use cases are actual stories from our customers that describe an issue they were having, what Monnit products were implemented, and how those products have helped the customers since. For example, Monnit was contacted by the manager of a large corporation’s internal data center that had a water issue during a weekend. While their existing system monitored for temperatures and humidity, there was nothing set up to detect water intrusion. A toilet ended up leaking outside of the data center, which caused water to cover the floor and seep into the server room. The water caused an electrical short which took down several server stacks and damaged a handful of servers.

This is not the way anyone wants to start a Monday morning!  This example perfectly illustrates how Monnit wireless sensors can help protect any business from unexpected disasters. No one could have predicted a toilet issue several yards away from the data center could cause such significant damage. A typical unexpected disaster can results in thousands of dollars in damage, while Monnit wireless sensors start at just $49. For only a few hundred dollars, this company was able to implement a solution to safe-guard against this type of unforeseen incident in the future.

Prepare for Warmer Spring Weather with Monnit

Protect your buildings from the spring thaw

As winter draws to a close and spring-time comes around the corner, don’t let the changing conditions catch you off guard! Be prepared for potential disasters such as water intrusion due to snow thawing. There are several solutions from Monnit to help detect potential disasters early! Monnit offers 4 different sensors for water detection: Water Detect, Water Detect Plus, Water Rope, and Water Puck. Each of these sensors report the same type of data, whether or not water is present, but are all slightly different with how that data is collected. Let’s start with the simplest options, Water Detect and Water Detect Plus. Water Detect uses a 3 ft wire (customizable) to detect when water comes in contact with the wire ends, sending a notification to the iMonnit system. This sensor covers the least amount of surface area but is ideal for attaching directly to pipes or placing on the edge of a central drain where water would most likely flow. An optional “Detect Plus” probe can be added to the end of the water detection wire, which can be positioned and mounted at a set distance above the ground, eliminating false alarms. Perhaps a drain pan needs to be guarded against overflowing, this probe can be placed at the ideal level to alert users when water is getting dangerously high. Monnit’s Water Rope Sensor is exactly what it sounds like, a water sensitive rope which comes in 10 ft. segments and can be extended up to 100 ft. This type of water detection sensor is great for safe guarding entire rooms, typically the rope is placed at the bottom of a baseboard or in a sub-flooring area. A great example of this would be a customer who had a toilet break over the weekend, causing major flooding which eventually seeped into their data center. Had a water rope sensor been placed around the floor and doorway to that room, an alert would have sounded the second water touched it and would not have been discovered on Monday morning when it was too late. Finally, the Monnit Water Puck sensor is for portability and durability. This sensor is completely water sealed and can be placed in any potential problem area, inside or outside of a building.

Monnit has plenty of other sensors as well depending on what “Things” you would like to monitor. Accelerometers can be used to track mechanical movement and send alerts if pumps or motors start vibrating excessively. Humidity is another environmental factor to keep an eye on as the weather changes. With over 50 unique types of wireless sensors available, whatever your needs may be, Monnit has a solution! If you don’t find what you need, contact our team to ask about custom sensor development.  Whatever your needs may be, Monnit is here to assist and help safeguard your buildings as the weather changes in the coming months.

Winter Property Monitoring with Monnit Wireless Sensors

Winter property Management
As the holiday season comes to an end, families return home after spending valuable time with each other. All this travel can be hectic, and sometimes there are things forgotten as people rush to return to their everyday lives. Monnit wireless sensors are a perfect way to ensure the maximum protection of your property while away. From monitoring entrance ways to keeping an eye on potential water leaks due to snow and ice, Monnit has you covered.

Monnit wireless sensors are designed to help protect businesses, properties and homes. Open/Closed sensors can send notifications to your phone or email should a door or window be opened or left open for a set period of time. Motion sensors help keep an eye on entry ways, driveways or other more publicity accessible areas.

Unoccupied buildings and homes are more frequent this time of the year, increasing the risk for damage due to the cold and weather. As temperatures drop, energy costs go up and the potential for damaging water leaks is increased. Monnit’s most popular sensors are temperature sensors because of how flexible their application is. Individuals or property managers can record temperatures of the air (inside/outside), the temperature of water, temperatures inside of duct work, or any other place where knowing temperature fluctuations would be useful. Tracking temperature changes over time can give users insights into how equipment is working or help show inconsistencies with heating systems. A/C current meters are an excellent way to get precise readouts on energy consumption and are especially useful to track power spikes or fine tune heating costs during the winter months. Combining a couple of temperature sensors with an A/C current meter will allow users to get a comprehensive view of energy consumption by comparing temperatures in different areas of a home or building. Knowing when your heating system is using the most amount of power gives insights into if there is an environmental factor which can be better controlled. Finally, one of the more damaging problems caused during winter is unexpected water damage from rain, snow, or ice. Expanding and contracting water can be very dangerous if it is able to get into the wrong areas, Monnit water detection sensors help prevent this water damage. If water can be removed in time, there is usually not that much harm done. It is the unnoticed water which sits that causes the most trouble, a Monnit wireless sensor is able to send notifications to any internet enabled device immediately should H2O be detected.

Monnit wants to make sure your building or home and the assets inside are protected. All of the sensor data generated can be viewed on one centralized website or mobile app, with custom notifications being sent is any issues are detected. There is not 1 cookie-cutter solution when it comes to the sensors and gateways required, so all of Monnit’s sensors and gateways are mix and match. Build the solution that best fits your needs for well under $500. We encourage users to start with the basics and expand their system as needed, once the value has been realized. For specific inquires, contact our sales team at: (801) 561-5555. Monnit wishes you the best this winter season. Have fun with friends and family while enjoying the peace of mind that comes from knowing your home or business is safe and sound.
