Custom Sensors:
Your Ideas, Our Expertise

Why Custom?

Because our business is focused on you, and you know your business better than anybody.

A standard sensor may not fit your operations perfectly. Maybe your requirements are as simple as a relocated on/off switch, a different power source, or there’s a pressing need for shorter temperature leads. Perhaps you need more customization because your business is developing an all-new product or expanding services—and an all-new way to monitor would be helpful.

How do I Start?

Survey your operations and then let us know how we can help. Monnit has been tailoring sensors to address customers’ needs for nine years. Many of Monnit’s industry-leading IoT solutions offered today are the results of customer collaborations.

"We have placed several of Monnit's heat sensor monitors on our medical equipment, and they have saved us thousands in repairs because we got notifications immediately when the AC system would shutdown. This would allow us time to put measures in place to keep equipment cool until the AC was up and running again."

The Check Engine Light™ for Off-Site Storage

Holiday success hinges on off-site storage for a host of businesses, including retailers, manufacturers, and supply chain management firms. From now until early 2020, these operations will run at redline to fulfill Black Friday and Cyber Monday promises. And they’ll rely on leased storage spaces to do it.

However, it can mean that inventory is left to chance.

Is the leased building’s HVAC up to a December chill (or December swelter in the Southern Hemisphere)? Can profits—and reputation—be trusted to the leasing firm’s equipment?

Costing a fraction of what lost inventory would, Monnit Wireless Sensors are the Check Engine Light™ for off-site storage. They monitor environment, activity, or power—if something starts to go wrong, such as a leaky roof, the sensors send an alert via text, email, or call. Early notifications protect inventory from water damage, freezing, or even theft.

Landlords & Lessors

Turn thin air into profit by leasing empty space. And then integrate remote monitoring with Monnit Wireless Sensors and market off-site storage monitoring as a value-add service. Monnit can private label sensors and sensor software to differentiate your business. Beyond providing storage space, you’re providing peace of mind—your staff (or theirs) can check on the storage unit at any time via smartphone or PC. Customers can focus on finishing 2019 strong. You can make every square foot count.

Temperature Sensors Monitor storage unit temperatures—get alerts if temperatures fall out of optimal range.
G-Force Max-Avg Know instantly if someone tries climbing a fence or breaches it with force.
Open/Closed Ensure off-site storage is secure by knowing when there’s unauthorized access.
Equipment Status Sensors Track HVAC equipment—if power consumption rises, schedule maintenance before failure.
Water Detect Sensors Be alerted immediately if water seeps into a storage unit so contents can be protected.
