Get Buff(er) for the Summer: Monnit Temperature Buffer

You know that summer temps make temperature monitoring for chilled products and ingredients a no-brainer. After all, Monnit sensors are the check engine light for your business™.

You also know that Monnit Wireless Sensors alert you if temps spike, enabling someone to catch and correct issues.

But did you know, Monnit offers the Temperature Buffer, an elegant solution that improves data accuracy and minimizes false alarms? As the name implies, the Temperature Buffer shields leaded temperature probes from temporary temperature changes that affect refrigerators and freezers, such as defrosting, heavy in & out traffic, or fans and circulating air.


Insert a temperature probe into the top of the 3’’ plastic vial and place it in your refrigerator or freezer. The buffer vial’s 3mm glass beads act as insulation to slow the temperature sensor’s response time by up to 52%. While this delay also helps with temperature accuracy, it shines by preventing false alerts—just the thing for businesses running at peak during the hottest time of the year. The graphic below illustrates the performance of a buffered temperature probe versus a non-buffered probe.

Refrigerated Trailer

Lose Loss: Refrigerated Trailer (Reefer) Temp Monitoring

Keep your chill on a roll

Maintaining an optimal temperature in refrigerated trailers is important for keeping food products fresh. If the temperature falls above or below the optimal range, costly spoilage can occur. Using our wireless temperature sensors to monitor their refrigerated trailers, Monnit customers have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in spoilage.

Monnit enables food distributors to monitor and track temperatures in their refrigerated trailers, ensuring that proper temperatures are maintained at all times. Monnit's reliable and affordable remote monitoring solutions make it easy for you to keep track of your trailers from anywhere online or via the included iMonnit app for Android and iOS. If a situation requires your attention, you'll get an instant alert via text, email, voice, or through a local alert system.

Temperature Sensors Receive alerts if trailer temps fall out of optimal range
Open-Closed Sensors Get an alert if a trailer door is opened or left open
AC Current Meters Monitor power usage of cooler systems and even predict failures
Average Cost $500-$800 for a gateway and 2-4 industrial-grade sensors
Typical Setup Time Less than 15 minutes
Battery Life Up to 12 years
  • Get alerted instantly when there is an issue with your trailer refrigeration systems.
  • Protect trailer cargo from spoilage and temperature-related issues.
  • Know more. Worry less.

All Monnit wireless sensors come with free basic online monitoring, allowing you to view sensor information anytime from anywhere. Receive instant notifications via text, email, or voice call if user-defined conditions are met or exceeded.

Protect your trailers and their cargo and get peace of mind with Monnit Wireless Sensors!

ALTA Wireless Temperature Sensors

ALTA Coin Cell Temperature Sensor

ALTA Wireless Temperature Sensors accurately measure thermal conditions in Celsius or Fahrenheit. Settings including alerts, reports, and maps are customizable in iMonnit's online interface. Each of the temperature sensors is designed to be set up and providing readings within minutes.

To provide industry-leading battery life, the sensors are programmed to sleep for a user-defined time interval (heartbeat), then power up and transmit recorded temperature data to the gateway.

ALTA Wireless Temperature Sensors with specialized hardware

ALTA Wireless Water Temperature Sensor The ALTA Wireless Water Temperature Sensor collects the temperature data of water or other noncombustible liquids using a sealed thermistor probe.
ALTA Wireless Quad Temperature Sensor The ALTA Wireless Quad Temperature Sensor features four probes that take temperatures in different points of a system such as an HVAC unit or manufacturing machine.
ALTA Wireless Thermostat The ALTA thermostat is designed specifically for remote configuration and energy savings. It features an integrated motion sensor to auto detect if an area is occupied and can be set to enter an energy-saving state when not needed. The thermostat will allow you to set a minimum and maximum temperature range for both occupied and non-occupied states. Control-free hardware prevents unauthorized temperature adjustments. The thermostat tracks and uploads temperature data like other Monnit temperature sensors, creating opportunities to leverage analytics and increase efficiency.
ALTA Wireless Thermocouple Sensor ­­­The ALTA Wireless Thermocouple Sensor features a probe that accurately measures temperatures up to 400°C (752°F). It is available in hardwired or K-type connector varieties.
