Water Intrusion Monitoring

Water Intrusion Monitoring

Water intrusion can start small and remain un-noticed for some time. Even the smallest amount of water can ruin property as well as seep into walls and flooring causing structural damage and/or mold. There are numerous sources for water intrusion and with the winter months upon us, we can start to see fluctuations in temperatures which can cause a multitude of these issues.

The most common sources of water intrusion include:

    • Roof leaks (both from age/wear and from snow and ice damaging roofing materials).
    • Plumbing leaks and/or pipe breaks in colder weather.
    • Sewer line back-ups.
    • Flooding from outside of the building.
    • Moisture intrusion through the building envelope.

Monnit provides a low-cost, reliable, wireless monitoring solution that provides immediate notification of water presence as well as monitor for variables that can lead to water intrusion.

Water Detection Sensors Detect and notify at the immediate presence of water.
Temperature Sensors Monitor temperatures and notify if below or above set threshold.
Water Temperature Sensors Monitor temperatures in water storage tanks and notify if too cold.
Voltage Detection Sensors Can detect if a sump pump is activated due to water level in sump pit.

All Monnit wireless sensors come with free basic online monitoring, allowing you to view sensor information anytime from anywhere. Receive instant notifications via email or SMS text if a set sensor condition is met or exceeded.

Tech Tip of the Month

Wireless Voltage Sensor Installation

Monnit wireless voltage detection sensors connect directly to high voltage power sources. Because it is not isolated, any exposed metal around the wiring and antenna must be treated as "HOT". To prevent the possibility of electric shock, it is recommended to mount sensor, connect wiring, and orient antenna prior to energizing the AC source it will be monitoring.

The following steps will demonstrate the correct way to connect the wireless voltage sensor to the power source you wish to monitor.

When hooking up a wireless voltage sensor please follow these instructions;

    • Connect the black wire from the Monnit voltage sensor to the "hot" side of the power source you
      are monitoring.
    • Connect the white wire from the Monnit voltage sensor to the "neutral" side of the power source
      you are monitoring.

The following diagram will help you understand wiring for 120V, 240V and 480V.

Wireless Voltage Sensor Connections

Once again, to avoid electircal shock, please remove power from the source you wish to monitor prior to connecting the wireless voltage sensor.
