The Monnit Wi-Fi motion sensor uses an infrared sensor to accurately
detect movements made by people/animals within 16.4 ft (5 m) range.
An integrated 802.11 b/g radio transmitter allows the device to be
easily programmed to work with any existing Wi-Fi network. This
version of the Wi-Fi sensor uses a detachable high gain antenna to
provide a 20-30% increase in range over the standard Wi-Fi sensor.
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 Setup Utility for Windows® PC's, 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 text
messages can be configured through the online system to alert the
user immediately when a defined parameter has been met or exceeded.
