TRANSCRIPT:

This short how-to video will walk you through adding devices on the new iMonnit site.

iMonnit is our cloud-based mobile internet platform for managing Monnit and ALTA products. This will be the online interface you will use to modify and monitor your sensors.

Start by logging in to iMonnit.

Gateways and Sensors are added using the same process. Gateways must be scanned into iMonnit first before any sensors. So we’re going to do this through the gateways menu, but sensors can be added the same way through the sensor page.

Go to Gateways on the main menu. If you haven’t added any sensors to your network, the page will be blank. To start adding a new gateway, select the Add Gateway button.

If you have more than one network, this is where you can set the network you wish to add the gateway or sensor to. You have the option of adding one device or multiple devices. For our purposes today, we’re going to choose the button to add one device.

You can add the device to your network in two ways. The first method we suggest is using your smartphone to scan the UPC on the label. Alternatively, you can enter the device ID and security code manually.

The device ID is a unique number located on each device label.

The security code is a set of six capital letters.

Select the Add Device button.

Your device will be added to your network. You may have to wait for the next heartbeat for it to start reporting in. Complete the process by choosing the finish button.
