New Advanced Wireless Sensor Notifications

iMonnit Screen

We have made some recent enhancements to the sensor notifications process in the iMonnit online Wireless Sensor Monitoring Software.

The new enhancements allow for easy set up of notifications across an entire wireless sensor network, instead of creating notifications for independent sensors. The new notification features allow you to set notifications based on sensor type, sensor inactivity, sensor battery status and advanced features such as when a sensor comes back online or returns to normal operation after entering an aware state.

To learn more about using the new notifications settings, please view the tech tip below or visit our wise guys support area on the Monnit website.

Glimpse of the future

Crystal Ball

Let's take a look in our crystal ball to see what the future holds at Monnit?

Monnit's development team is hard at work developing a new wireless pulse counter. The pulse counter will be available in single input and four input versions. Our wireless pulse counters will allow you to connect a triggering device such as a switch, plate or IR unit and will return the number of activations within a user set time frame. These sensors are a great addition to the Monnit product lineup and should be available in June. If you would like to learn more about these new sensors or be notified when they become available, please email us at sales@monnit.com.

Machine to Machine (M2M) Applications.

Wireless networks have made it far easier for M2M communication to take place and have lessened the amount of power and time necessary for information to be communicated between machines. Monnit wireless solutions allow for an array of new business opportunities and connections between machines and people.

Monnit provides low-cost wireless sensors that can improve production and efficiency in various areas. For example, adding Monnit wireless sensors to a production machine, makes it smart enough to let maintenance know when it needs maintenance and what needs to be repaired. This type of information helps streamline production and keeps machines working at highest efficiency. Using Monnit wireless sensors to monitor facility systems can provide cost savings in areas like heating and ventilation, area access, light and power management.

          • Low Battery (creates a notification to alert when a sensors battery needs to be replaced).
          • Advanced (notifications such as sensors coming back online or returning from aware states).
    - Click the "Create" button to create the notification.

People to Notify:
After clicking on the "Create" or "Edit" buttons you come the notification settings window. The first section allows you to choose who should be contacted with the current notification.
