Tech Tip of the Month

by The WiSe Guys

WiSe Guys

Setting up and using the New MoWi Wi-Fi Sensors.

We have taken the time to make our new Wi-Fi sensor line the easiest wireless sensors to use yet. This tech-tip demonstrates the setup process for using these new sensors. For a complete video walkthrough of the setup process visit www.mowisensors.com.

1. Download and Run the MoWi Setup Application.

    • Visit www.mowisensors.com and download the
      Monnit Wi-Fi sensor setup application.

    • Launch the Wi-Fi setup application.
      Note: The application is self-running and does not install
      on your computer.

    • Create a new account if you are a new user or login if you already have an iMonnit account.

2. Download and Install the USB Cable Driver.

    • Download the driver from https://www.mowisensors.com/downloads/CP210x_VCP_Windows.zip.

    • When the file has completed downloading, open the download folder and unzip the file
      "CP210x_VCP_Windows.zip". (Right-click the file and choose "Extract All".)

    • Open the folder that was created and launch the appropriate driver installer.
            • Launch "CP210xVCPInstaller_x64.exe" for 64-bit computers
            • Launch "CP210xVCPInstaller_x86.exe" for 32-bit computers

    • Click "Run" then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

    • When finished, insert the USB side of the included cable into an available port on your PC.
      When inserted, your computer will automatically finish installing the USB driver.

3. Add Sensors To Your Wi-Fi Network and iMonnit Account.

    • Insert two AA batteries into the MoWi sensor. The LED will flash green while the sensor looks for
      an authorized Wi-Fi network, then flash red if none is found.

    • Plug the USB cable into a MoWi Sensor. When plugged in, the software will automatically update
      to show the sensor's information.

    • Select the Wi-Fi network you want to use the sensors on and enter the security credentials.
      If you don't know your Wi-Fi network SSID, you can use the connected MoWi sensor to
      search for an available wireless network. To search, click the arrow to the right of the SSID field
      and select "Search for Networks". The field will update with all available wireless networks.
      Select the one you wish to use.

Wi-Fi Credentials

    • After selecting the Wi-Fi network, choose the type of security used then enter the pass phrase. If
      using an open (non-secured) access, no pass phrase is needed.

    • When all information has been entered, click the "Assign Sensor to Wi-Fi Network" button. The
      configuration information will be programmed to the sensor and the sensor will be added to your
      iMonnit online account. When the process is complete, you will see a successful operation pop-up.
      Click "OK" to close this window. It is now safe to unplug the USB cable from the Wi-Fi sensor.
