Tech Tip of the Month

Get Optimal Range From Your Wireless Sensors Through Network Reset

Getting the best range from your sensors can require a bit of trial and error. In this Tip, we discuss resetting your sensor network to assure your system is operating on the most optimal RF frequency in your region, giving you the most range possible. Once you have completed this process, you may also want to look at the following FAQs:

  - Optimizing Your Wireless Sensor Network
  - How To Orient Antennas for Optimal Range

Prior to Monnit shipping your wireless network, your sensors are tested in our lab. This means we form and operate the network in-house. Upon set-up, the sensors and gateway lock onto the most clear RF channel for our facility and begin communicating. The next time the sensor network is plugged in (presumably when you are installing the sensors), your network is still locked onto the same channel that was optimal in our test facilities. However, that may not be the optimal channel for YOU in YOUR location. Thus, we recommend you reset the network prior to deploying the sensors. This will help you achieve the best range for your sensor deployment.

For USB Gateways Using iMonnit Online Software
    1. Start the iMonnit gateway software
    2. Insert the USB dongle and wait for the network to go active
    3. Select "Reset Network" from the gateway software and wait until the status again says
        "Network Active"
    4. Begin putting the batteries in the sensors


For USB Gateways Using Monnit Express Software
    1. Start the Monnit Express software
    2. Insert the USB dongle and wait for the network to go active
    3. Go to the pull down menu titled "File" and select "Reset Network," and wait until the
        status again says "Network Active"
    4. Begin putting the batteries in the sensors

For Ethernet Gateways Using iMonnit Online Software
    1. Install your Ethernet gateway as per the instructions from your Quick Start Guide
    2. Select "My Account" from the main header

    3. From the Sensor Network list, select the edit pencil of the gateway you wish to reform the network.

    4. From the options below, select "Reform Network" and wait until the Ethernet gateway has
        processed the command and reset itself. You will know this is complete once all three LEDs
        on the Ethernet gateway are green again.

    5. Begin inserting the batteries into your sensors.

Your sensor network is now operating on the most optimal RF channel available in your area.
