The Monnit Wi-Fi dry contact sensor can be used to detect contact
between two wired contact points that can be used with an external
mechanical switch or a contact plate. An integrated 802.11 b/g radio
transmitter allows the device to be easily programmed to work with
any existing Wi-Fi network. Monnit Wi-Fi sensors can be easily
programmed with Wi-Fi network security via a low cost USB
programming cable, available here, and the free MoWi Utility
for Windows, keeping the user's Wi-Fi network secure. User
defined transmission intervals (heartbeats) and sensor threshold
settings ensure that sensor data is received when needed, based on
the application. All sensor data is stored securely in the iMonnit
Online Sensor Monitoring software and is viewable from any web
enabled device. Email and SMS messages can be configured
through the online system to alert the user immediately when a
defined parameter has been met or exceeded.
