Real-Time IoT Data Alerts and Analytics Help You Overcome Many Operational Obstacles

Since 2010, we've helped tens of thousands of customers in more than 40 vertical markets worldwide be problem solvers. By employing the Internet of Things (IoT), you can solve some of the world's most common and unique problems.

Think of the widespread sensing of office temperature, humidity, and HVAC performance. Then, consider the placement of a temperature sensor with a lead monitoring combustible waste in a landfill. The IoT use case spectrum is broad, diverse, and seemingly endless.

Our Why

When Monnit started, we were initially inspired by technology that allows someone in dire straits to push a button and have emergency personnel help them. Combining this concept with our years of working with embedded Internet systems, we were excited to see that our wireless sensors could make a machine talk about voltage and vibration. Or send an alert about motion and climate conditions changes to a smartphone. As you can tell, we're still excited about these things.

We quickly became hooked on helping people solve problems in nearly every industry by building IoT remote monitoring solutions. Monnit's business has grown by people asking us if we can help them get the data they need to solve some of their most critical operational issues. That's the reason for our 80+ wireless sensors—problem-solving.

Your Why

With real-time, actionable IoT data alerts and trending analysis, you can make faster, more informed decisions to correct problems like poor production efficiency, rising frozen food temperatures, water intrusion, etc. There are so many problems the IoT can help you solve, even predict and prevent.

Enhance Your Problem-Solving Skills

Despite all the benefits of your IoT solution deployments, we'll always recommend you keep looking for more opportunities to collect IoT data. Do periodic check-ins with your team, and ask:

  • Are there facilities and equipment that we aren't measuring or monitoring enough?
  • What processes can be more efficient, safe, or cost-effective and that IoT data could help improve?

Being a problem solver with Monnit IoT involves leveraging our solutions to identify and address various challenges and unique opportunities within your operations. We work to make it easy for you to be a problem solver using our IoT solutions.

For example, with our proprietary IoT platform featuring ALTA technology and iMonnit Software, you don't have to worry about knowing how to program IoT communication or connectivity protocols, data security, or IoT hardware prototyping and development.

However, we recommend you:

  • Clearly define your problems. What specific and related issues are you trying to solve, and what outcomes do you need? The more precisely you define the problem, the better you can define and find relevant IoT solutions.
  • Understand basic IoT concepts and an IoT ecosystem's components regarding data collection and analysis using sensors, gateways, and cloud sensor data management software (iMonnit).
  • Look through the lens of this foundational knowledge to help you see where you can integrate and scale IoT solutions into other aspects of your organization to be more proactive and predictive.
  • Stay updated and agile. IoT technologies evolve rapidly. Learn about the newest IoT trends and advancements to ensure your solutions remain current and competitive.

By following these steps and continuously improving your IoT skills and knowledge, you can become an even more effective problem solver in the exciting and dynamic field of the IoT.

Just Some of the Many Problems the IoT Can Help You Solve

By way of reminder, here are several examples of IoT applications:

Temperature and Humidity Monitoring

Prevent equipment damage, occupant discomfort, and product spoilage by monitoring temperature and humidity levels in offices, storage facilities, warehouses, greenhouses, and cold storage units.

Energy Efficiency

Optimize energy usage in commercial buildings and manufacturing facilities by monitoring HVAC systems, lighting, and electrical equipment.

Water Leak Detection

Prevent water damage and minimize water wastage using leak detection sensors in areas prone to water leaks and intrusion, such as bathrooms, walls, halls, walkways, basements, server rooms, and utility closets.

Equipment Health Monitoring

Monitor the condition of critical machinery and equipment with temperature, current, vibration, and tilt sensors to detect early signs of malfunction, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.

Security and Access Control

Enhance security by using door and window sensors and motion detectors to monitor unauthorized access to facilities or restricted areas.

Environmental Compliance

Ensure compliance with environmental regulations by monitoring air quality, gas emissions, and other environmental factors in industrial settings.

Inventory Management

Improve inventory control by tracking inventory levels, storage conditions, and product expiration dates in warehouses and storage facilities.

Cold Chain Monitoring

Maintain the integrity of temperature-sensitive products during transportation and storage in the cold chain such as pharmaceuticals and food items.

Remote Site Monitoring

Monitor remote sites, such as cell towers, solar installations, and oil wells, to ensure they operate efficiently and detect issues early.

Facility Maintenance

Track the use and condition of assets like generators, pumps, and elevators and monitor HVAC and boiler performance to schedule maintenance proactively and reduce downtime.

Healthcare and Life Sciences

Monitor temperature-sensitive medications and samples in healthcare and laboratory settings to ensure quality and compliance with regulations.


Monitor soil moisture, temperature, and environmental conditions to optimize crop yield and resource usage in agriculture.

Food Safety

Monitor and data log temperature and humidity in food storage and processing facilities to prevent spoilage and contamination while complying with food safety regulations and protocols.


Improve the shopping experience by monitoring store conditions, such as temperature, water intrusion, lighting, and security, to enhance customer comfort and safety.


Maintain the integrity of pharmaceutical products and maintain compliance in the lab and during storage and transportation by monitoring temperature and humidity levels.

Find New Ways to Problem Solve with the IoT

Of course, the above list isn't exhaustive of the IoT's impact by vertical market or industry, but it can spark a brainstorm as you look for new ways to implement IoT solutions. Monnit's ALTA Wireless Sensors offer flexibility and scalability, allowing you to tailor your remote monitoring solutions to your needs.

By effectively leveraging our sensors in your problem-solving, you can reduce operational risks, predict maintenance, and increase efficiency in many applications and processes.
