Check Out the New Device Setup and Rules Configuration Processes in iMonnit

Users of iMonnit IoT Monitoring and Sensor Management Software have new revisions in two sections to use now. The New Device Setup process has a new look and streamlined process. Plus, the new Rules feature replaces the Actions section.

Set Up a Device in Four Steps

Whether it’s a new sensor or gateway, you can set it up in the following steps.

1. Add Device

You must first enter your new Monnit Device ID and Security Code (SC) to set up a device.

2. Setup

The device name will appear, and you can tell iMonnit how you will use the device.

3. Validation

You will see a checkmark validating that the gateway is online, the new device or sensor is on the gateway list, the batteries are inserted, and the device communicates with the server.

4. Complete

After the validation steps, iMonnit will prompt you to Add Another Device or Edit Device Settings.

Create a New Rule for a Device in Six Steps

Previously, you could create an Action for a Monnit ALTA Sensor or Gateway to take when a specific condition was met, like if a temperature threshold was breached. Actions are now Rules. The steps to take to create a new Rule include the following:

creating rules in iMonnit

1. Create a Rule

Choose the rule type: Sensor Reading, Device Battery Level, Device Inactivity Status, Scheduled Time, or Advanced Rule.

2. Pick a Device

Determine the device that will use your new Rule.

3. Choose a Condition

For example, if you’re adding a new Rule to an ALTA Temperature Sensor, the condition could be a threshold greater than or less than a specific temperature.

4. Set Up Tasks

The Tasks you can set up for the Rule to do when the condition is met are Send an Email, Send a Text, Send a Voice Call, and Create System Action. With the first three Tasks, you can create a message that selected recipients will receive in the Notification.

5. Name the Rule

You can give your new Rule a unique name. We recommend adding the Rule Type and Condition you’re monitoring to the Rule Name. The best Rule Names have memorable terms for your remote monitoring use case or application.

6. Rule Complete

Lastly, you can add other devices and a schedule to your new Rule, edit advanced settings, and create a new Rule.

Take some time to see how the iMonnit revisions work by adding a new Rule to one of your Monnit IoT devices today.
