Monnit Monthly Newsletter - November 2018


Welcoming 2019 Together

Last year, we brought you new ways of monitoring your things, from the ALTA Air Sensors to the Smart Thermostat. As a global IoT leader, we also established tremendous international joint ventures, such as forming Monnit Korea with Seoul-based SeAnTecs Inc., a global property management firm.

These milestones have readied us to support you this year in optimizing processes, enhancing services, and bolstering your bottom line.

2019 Showstopper

Next week, we’re showcasing our industrial and enterprise-grade remote monitoring solutions at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The CES show demonstrates how the web of interconnected things grows denser each day. We’ll be there helping firms of all sizes collect and manage the data they need to move business forward.

Full Steam Ahead

Head confidently into 2019 knowing that Monnit will launch several new products—led by the upcoming ALTA LTE Gateway—to enhance your current remote monitoring applications and open new possibilities for you. This year, you will see solutions that help you obtain data from harsh locations, provide even greater retail asset management, and help protect the most valuable resource of all: people.

Monnit - ALTA LTE Gateway

A 2019 Debut: Monnit LTE Cellular Gateway

Monnit’s new LTE Cellular Gateway brings the bandwidth and speed of 4G LTE to your autonomous remote monitoring applications. The gateway leverages IoT-ready CAT-M1 cellular technology for seamless connectivity and is equipped with an optional backup battery. The battery makes this gateway ideal for off-site locations because Monnit Wireless Sensors can continue communicating with the iMonnit server during a power outage.

Contact us at to learn about bringing 4G technology to your own Internet of Things solution.


"I wanted to thank the Monnit team for their support during a customer install for monitoring a laser at a metal fabrication company. It was the first time I had installed a system, and it went smoothly thanks to your team. I spoke with four team members, and all were knowledgeable, courteous, patient, and helpful."

"Thanks to you, we have a satisfied customer. They called to inquire about options on Wednesday afternoon, and by Monday afternoon we had the solution installed and operational. I look forward to using Monnit in future projects, and will be reaching out to other clients to discuss how we can apply the system to meet their needs."

ALTA RT - Real-Time Wireless Sensing

Need to know? Need to know right now?

The upcoming ALTA® RT line represents one of the most significant additions to the ALTA platform to date. Led by the ALTA RT Gateway, this wireless family uniquely addresses the need for battery-powered real-time sensing solutions that are easily integrated into demanding applications.

The entire ALTA RT line will bring an unprecedented level of agility to connected environments, helping meet demands for the real-time data acquisition. This capability supports machine health monitoring, guides preventive maintenance, and ensures reliability in mission-critical applications for manufacturing and processing environments.

As the lead product for ALTA RT, the upcoming gateway will accommodate up to 20 ALTA RT sensors and will initially be available in either AA or industrial variants (with a line-powered model planned).

Use Temperature Sensors to Prevent Frozen Pipes & Water Sensors to Detect Plumbing Leaks

As Winter settles in across the United States, we receive many requests for our wireless temperature and water sensors. These sensors are used in both commercial and residential properties to help minimize the potential for damage because of frozen water lines.

Water expands when it freezes, putting pressure on pipes, valves, tubing, and hoses. The results are often costly and very time-consuming to fix. In minutes, a one-eighth inch crack can release 250 gallons of water, dramatically disrupting daily life. It’s smart to take precautionary steps to insulate exposed pipes, turn off water lines, and drain unused pipes. However, these precautions are not always feasible and do not always work.

Equipment level: verify equipment has power The Power Monitoring Funnel

So, how do you ensure that your pipes don't reach freezing temperature? How do you know if there has been a break? We recommend Monnit's trusted ALTA Wireless Temperature Sensors to monitor the temperatures around your water pipes and ALTA Wireless Water Detection Sensors to know immediately if a broken pipe leaks. There are no wires to worry about, the sensors can be set up in less than 15 minutes, and then you can monitor everything from any computer, tablet or smartphone.

Quick Stats:

 Average Cost $400-$500 for a gateway and 4-8 sensors.
