Network Configuration in iMonnit Online

Networks in iMonnit Online

Sensor Network Overview

A Network in the iMonnit Online groups together sensors and gateways as to authorize communication between the devices. The Network is the manner by which you determine which devices will be allowed to communicate together. After a gateway and sensor are added to the same Network, the gateway will download the sensor ID and will subsequently authorize the sensor to communicate with that gateway. This article will advise of the process to create a Network in the iMonnit Online platform.

A Network also serves as an organizational component for your devices. iMonnit Premiere members can have multiple Networks each with their own gateway and unique list of sensors. A device can be added to a single network at a time. If you have multiple Networks, you can switch between them to view the devices that have been added.
