In addition to the numerous wireless sensors, gateways and other devices offered by Monnit to connect your devices to the Internet of Things, Monnit also provides several software solutions to view all the data being collected. Gathering data is only half of the equation, the other half is a software solution for viewing and analyzing this information so you can optimize systems or respond to issues in a timely manner.
The most widely used software option is the iMonnit Online solution which is accessible by any internet enabled device through the Monnit web portal. iMonnit is a secure cloud-based monitoring and notification system dedicated to Monnit Wireless Sensors and Gateways. The system allows for complete configuration and customization at a sensor, local network, or client wide level. iMonnit allows for management of sensor data as well as the ability to setup alerts via SMS text or email to one or many people. iMonnit Basic is included for free with all wireless sensors, providing basic features for you to configure and monitor your sensors online. iMonnit Premiere allows for enhanced functionality of your wireless sensors and includes an advanced software feature set, all starting at a low annual cost of $39.00 a year. Some of the additional Premiere features include:
- Unlimited user accounts for system configuration, monitoring and notifications
- Sensor heartbeats (check-ins) down to 10 minutes
- Timed sensors (i.e. temp) can be user set to check against alert thresholds up to 256 times between heartbeats
- Triggered sensors (i.e. motion, door/window, etc.) record data as it happens, regardless of heartbeat
- Advanced sensor configuration options
- SMS text and email notifications sent from the system when sensor thresholds are exceeded
- Unlimited data storage
- Sensor Mapping Tool
- iMonnit API commands for integrating into 3rd party applications
iMonnit Express PC Software is an alternative to online monitoring that runs as a standalone PC application without the need for an internet connection. This system is meant to provide a simple and effective way for customers to manage a smaller network of sensors using on-screen alerts and email notifications to remotely signal the user. iMonnit Express allows for the same basic sensor network configuration and customization as the online version and can be used with most Monnit wireless sensors and gateway products.
iMonnit Enterprise is available for large organizations with specific data usage requirements. It provides the same feature set as the iMonnit Premiere online system while allowing the organization to host and maintain their own sensor data, on their own server, behind a company firewall. iMonnit Enterprise also allows for a virtually unlimited number of sensors and gateways and sensor heartbeats down to 1 second (limitations are based on company’s server resources).
If you have your own software platform and would like to use Monnit wireless products, Monnit has a few options available. APIs/Webhooks can be used from within iMonnit to push sensor data to your software. If you want to completely integrate Monnit wireless sensor networks into your application, Monnit Mine enables true IoT functionality by enabling integration of Monnit wireless sensors networks with existing or custom software systems by providing a translation layer between the two.
Note: In order to use Monnit wireless sensors with iMonnit Express, iMonnit Enterprise or Monnit Mine, wireless gateways will need to be unlocked, allowing them to be directed to your custom host or IP address. iMonnit Enterprise, Premiere, and MINE can also be white-labeled to match your company’s branding and colors.
