Instructions for calibrating Monnit wireless temperature sensors.

Did you know that you can calibrate a wireless temperature sensor to make it more accurate for your application? The Monnit® wireless temperature sensor is accurate to +/- 1°C (1.8°F) and calibration to the sensor's working environment provides even greater accuracy. To calibrate your sensors, open your favorite browser and login to your iMonnit® account at

    1. Once logged into the system, from the overview page, click on the sensor you would like to calibrate. This drops down the sensor details.
    2. Click the "Calibrate" tab.

    3. Make note of the last reading the sensor returned.
    4. Enter the actual temperature that the sensor should have returned.
    5. Click the "Calibrate" button.

It will take the sensor up to 2 heartbeats to fully calibrate. Do not attempt any further calibrations until at least 2 heartbeats have elapsed. The calibration function is a linear calibration so it is recommended that you calibrate the sensor in the environment that it will be measuring. (It is not advised to calibrate a temperature sensor to room temperature and then place the sensor in a cooler or freezer.)
